Practice this unique form of yoga where you and your partner work together to accomplish creative and challenging poses. Your partner can be your friend, roommate, spouse, life partner, sibling, parent, child, or anyone else whose company you enjoy.

In Yoga with a Friend you will learn breathing techniques to facilitate tranquility together, and partner poses that develop trust and mutual support. You will develop strong non-verbal communication skills as you work together to achieve balance. You will amaze yourselves as you accomplish the poses.

Along with poses and breathing techniques, you will learn some great visualizations and meditation techniques. You will also be introduced to yoga philosophy and understand how to apply yoga lifestyle guidelines to your various relationships. In Yoga with a Friend we hope to share this fun, challenging, and deeply rewarding practice with you.

As Kimberlee went through her yoga teacher-training program, Todd became her practice student, and he provided tremendous feedback which helped her become a better teacher. He discovered that yoga went beyond the stereotypes he had envisioned it to be, and began incorporating aspects of yoga into his daily life.

Kimberlee and Todd discovered partner yoga in 2003 and have thoroughly enjoyed creating new poses. They have used the teachings of yoga as a framework to help them construct their growth as both husband and wife and as individuals.
