Hey Chicks! We are BFF yogis, Christy and Meg! Christy (bottom) is a yoga studio owner and mother of a teenage son and Meg (top) is a photographer (specializing in newborn babies) and mother to 5 boys. In January, we started a 365 day partner yoga project entitled Partner Yoga 365. Follow along on Instagram, let’s do it together!
First Things First!
Find a partner you can trust. This is important, for obvious reasons.
Decide who will be the “base” and who will be the “flyer” The base is generally the person who is bigger, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. In the examples below, Christy is the base, and Meg is the flyer.
Consider using a spotter. It’s often helpful to have a spotter to help you get into some of the trickier poses, and also to check your alignment. A spotter can see things you can’t necessarily see when you’re in the posture.
Be mindful of your body and what it’s telling you. If something doesn’t feel right, it isn’t. Re-position or come out of it completely, and try again.
