Couples Yoga: Chakras, Poses, and Benefits
Despite the prevalence of sex in our culture, the art of sensuality is still a rather taboo subject. The desensitization by the media has a lot to do with the fact that we now view the physical act of sex as a separate entity than the mental state of sensuality, when in reality they should be intertwined as one and the same. Couples yoga can help us to reconnect these basic human impulses and form a more eloquent idea of sexuality in both the theory, and practice, of our own lives.
What Is Yoga?
Yoga has come to mean many different things to a variety of people. In Western culture it is primarily viewed as a form of low intensity exercise that is mainly used as a way to gently strengthen muscles. As a spiritual discipline in Eastern culture, it’s proper focus on meditation and spirituality overrides the physical benefits it also happens to grant its participants. Depending on which aspects of the art you choose to focus on, you may reap benefits on more than one level.
Most forms of yoga are rooted in spiritual beliefs and practices, which can cause intense inner peace and self acceptance. These disciplines are often practiced individually as a way to center one’s self and focus on energy and improvement inward. Tantra yoga on the other hand, is focused on the use of chakras, mantras, elaborate visualizations, and sexual techniques as a way to connect to your spirituality. Since tantra is established as having a sexual tone it is viewed as a partnership yoga, or couples yoga, and a way to connect your chakras on a deeper sensual level to your partner(s).
