Couples Yoga & Meditation

Begin your date night with an experience that will help you unwind from the week and leave you and your partner feeling deeply connected and intimate with one another. This form of all-levels yoga uses ancient techniques to strengthen your relationship to yourself and your partner by becoming self-aware and releasing your hidden potential.  It also synchronizes breathing, postures and movements as you relate to your partner through assisted poses. This class is designed for partners to really “see” each other by being present, coordinating movements and best of all, allowing you to reconnect on a heart level.
