The practice of yoga yokes (or unites) our mind, body and spirit. When we participate in a partner practice, that union within is also intended to occur between you and your partner. In order to yoke ourselves to another human, the resulting increased closeness requires trust and respectful physical contact. Physical closeness often challenges our conditioned patterns with regard to boundary setting.
A partnered asana practice provides the opportunity to look at and listen to your conditioned boundary patterns. In addition, the use of yoga actions, along with pratyahara, pranayama and meditation techniques, will reveal how these conditioned patterns have contributed to spinal misalignment.
