10 Easy and Best Yoga Poses for Two People

Seated forward and backbends is a pose you will really enjoy with your partner as it stretches the core regions of your body while also enhancing your fitness.

Either of you will fold to the forward direction while the other person will lay down with extreme comfort on the back of the person who folded forward.

Therefore, take a deep breathe, raise your arms overhead, and while breathing out gently fold forward and ensure your legs remain crossed.

Once you are prepared enough to go deeper into the pose, inform your partner to go ahead and lay flat on your back.

Your yoga friend will remain cross-legged and will be lying comfortably on your back, allowing his/her arms drop a bit to the side and thus opening his/her chest.
