Yogi couples are cut from a different cloth than other couples. They’ve found something they’re both passionate about and can have fun doing it together. After all, a couple who plays together stays together right? But, as yogi couples approach Valentine’s Day, many struggle to find or make plans that are suitable for their healthy and active lifestyle. Luckily, there are a number of yoga-related date ideas that are sure to check every box on your list.
Check out these six great date ideas and that incorporate yoga into your Valentine’s Day…
Take Couples Yoga Class
Let’s get the most obvious one out of the way. Partners yoga classes are growing in popularity and for good reason. By incorporating poses that call for cooperation between both partners, it’s a fun and playful way to expand your pose repertoire while also getting closer to your honey.
Yoga is all about honoring your body and doing what’s best for yourself both inside and out. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean that practicing your asanas is the only way to show yourself or your partner some love. Take some time out and treat yourselves to a post-yoga couples massage. There’s nothing like being blissed out from a yoga class and then following it with a romantic massage. Highly recommended!
Love Themed Yoga Class/Poses
Did you know that there are various yoga poses that promote everything from self-love to romantic love, to physical love? Do some research and find a yoga class that centers around the poses that focus on heart openers, for romantic love, and hip openers, for physical love and desire. You may even end up leaving class early 😉
Keeping communication open and remaining mindful are two of the cornerstones of any healthy and successful romantic relationship. Being truly intimate with a person comes down to more than your physical connection. Many top yoga gurus encourage couples to practice mindfulness exercises together. By opening up and letting yourselves be completely vulnerable together, you’re allowing space for your love and intimacy to grow. Start small by holding hands or cuddling more often. Then try exercises like sitting and gazing into each others’ eyes or practicing positive affirmations toward each other by telling your partner something you love and appreciate about them.
Yoga Night In
Who says you have to go out to have the perfect Valentine’s Day? If you’re the kind of couple who prefer to stay in, find something you both like to do and do it together. Find a good movie to watch, cook a healthy and delicious dinner together, bake and decorate yoga pose cookies together, find a couples-themed yoga video online and have a private class at home…then make out. The possibilities are endless!
What good is strengthening your core if you’re not going to use it for fun and exciting team based activities? Well, besides the obvious health benefits…Rock climbing is a great way to work as a team, stay fit, and build trust and intimacy as a couple. Help and encourage each other along the way until you’ve both reached your mutual goal and feel the love as you reach the top together.
The bottom line is, as long as you’re together with the one you love on Valentine’s Day, you can’t really go wrong. But, with these six Valentine’s Day date ideas for yogi couples, maybe it’ll go just a little more right!
