Valentine’s Day is upon us and what’s a better way to celebrate the day with your friend or partner yogi-style? The boyfriend and I always thoroughly enjoy ourselves when we attend yoga classes together, especially partner yoga workshops. Partner yoga is a great way to learn how to trust, communicate, and of course, fall and laugh together! It is definitely one of our favourite activities to do together.
So if you are looking for a special event to bring your yogi girlfriend/boyfriend/friend to this Valentine’s Day, here are 3 great events that you should sign up for:
1. Partner Yoga with Yun Ng and Roxanne Toh
Bring your yoga practice up a notch by incorporating a partner to bring you deeper into poses for healing and therapeutic purposes. Of course, there may also be some acroyoga elements thrown into the 2 hour long session as well! I personally have attended 2 partner yoga workshops by Hom Yoga in the past and I have always enjoyed myself thoroughly.
2. Handstand in Partnership with Marc Bauchet
Where: Sadhana Sanctuary
When: 1.30pm to 4.30pm
$$$: $90 (per person), $170 (per couple)
This 3 hour long workshop is definitely great value for money. Not only do you learn how to enter handstands safely with the help of your partner, you also get to learn massage techniques and stretches that will help to evolve your practice. Learning how to spot others in their practice would also do wonders in creating greater awareness to your own body in your yoga practice. Plus you get a complimentary massage or facial spa with every sign-up!
3. Valentine’s Day Contact Yoga with Marc Bauchet and Crystal Gui
Where: The Lumen Room
When: 7pm to 9pm
$$$: $50 (registered), $90/pair (registered), $60 (drop-in), $110/pair (drop-in)
For friends and couples looking for serious acroyoga fun, this would be the workshop for you! The workshop incorporates elements of acroyoga and dance, and there is also a milonga (social dance for tango) happening after the workshop. It is free for those participating in the workshop to observe and a discounted entrada of $8 for those tango dancers attending both. Definitely a fun way to spend your Valentine’s Day night!
I hope you enjoy yourself with your friends, partners, and loved ones this Valentine’s Day! Who says Valentine’s Day is only for couples? It can definitely be a day to remind ourselves to show appreciation to the friends and family that we love dearly. Have a great week you guys! x
