Yoga paired – a new degree of freedom

On Saturdays, we pay practical attention to working in pairs. Yoga with a partner is not just a “fun”, it is a deep spiritual, I am not afraid of the word practice. The first keyword that pops up here is Trust. You learn to trust sometimes a completely random and stranger who turned out to be a neighbor on the rug. If this is your close and familiar person, then yoga in a pair deepens the feeling of trust. Entrusting yourself, letting go of fears sometimes requires considerable courage even at this uncomplicated level and even without complex supports and asanas. Allowing you to touch yourself in an elementary way can be a real test for someone. Especially in our “Nordic” society, where it is customary to observe a considerable distance, and so-called “personal space” in people is quite large. Not only to trust, but also to trust, to relax, let go of the desire to control everything and everyone, feel the other person, breathe the tunic with him, quietly go out, crawl out of their shell and interact, join forces with a partner to better reveal each other – to the extent that in which the partner can open today.
So, a lot of psychological work has been done. Let’s talk about physics. Usually, performing asanas, we use the gravity of the Earth and our body. A partner, by correctly applying effort or adding his weight or support, allows you to enter a pose deeper, discover new body possibilities, increase flexibility. As a result, this same asana, performed independently – will be much easier.

It should be distinguished yoga in pairs, and so-called. acro yoga. For me, working in pairs is more thoughtful and “serious”. Acro yoga is more for fun, but requires more physical strength.
In general, yoga in pair and acroyoga is a story about strength, flexibility, freedom, trust and love, and also just a sea of ​​positive!
