Top Six Sexiest Yoga Poses for Couples
Partner yoga is a great way for couples to gain flexibility, strength and trust. This type of yoga is great for date nights, Valentine's Day or any time. When looking for the most intimate, sexy poses (asanas) to perform with your partner, try one of these top six sexiest yoga poses for couples.
#1 Double Plow (Halasana)
The double plow pose looks sexy; however, that is not the only benefit of this asana made for two. The double plow allows couples to rest their legs on one another rather than having the toes touch the floor as they do when performing the regular plow pose.
#2 Bow Pose (Dhanurasana)
To perform the bow pose for two, couples will turn away from each other as they get into the pose, interlinking their legs like a chain.
#3 Seated Bow
This sexy asana allows one person to perform the bow pose while the other person sits on the feet of the person engaged in the pose. The seated person will gently rest their hands on their partner's shoulders.
The butterfly pose and the forward bend combine to create a match made in heaven. The partner on the bottom performs the butterfly pose while leaning as far forward as they can. Meanwhile, the other person gets into the forward bend pose and rests their head on their partner's upper back.
#5 Supported Heron Pose Variation (Krounchasana)
The Heron pose becomes a supported pose as each person rests one leg on the other person's shoulder. This asana becomes modified because the leg isn't brought straight up as it is in the original heron pose. Hold this sexy pose for several seconds before switching legs.
#6 Camel Pose (Ustrasana)
To perform the couples camel pose, face your partner and allow your bodies to touch. Next, hold on to each others arms and gently arch the back. The lower legs should still be touching, and you will not take hold of your ankles as you would in the regular camel pose.
Remember to switch legs, arms and positions so muscles are stretched and strengthened equally.
Enhance intimacy by adding candles, dimmed lighting and romantic music. Fireplaces, black lights and smoke machines can also add interest to the atmosphere.
Practice partner yoga regularly for increased flexibility, toning and trust.
