Transform Your Body, Mind, and Relationship in 14-days 

Yoga strengthens the core, increases flexibility, signals muscle imbalances, and just makes you plain feel good.

Outside of creating a healthy body, yoga creates a healthy mind by increasing awareness and an “in the moment” and reflective attitude. With thoughtful practice, yoga can transform your health, energy, and focus.

Our partner yoga challenge aims to reconnect you to your health while exposing you to various styles of yoga. Additionally, you get to experience the benefits of partner yoga while practicing new couples yoga positions.

Why Practice Yoga as a Couple?

There are many compelling individual and couple yoga benefits. For example, you are gaining mental clarity, preventing injuries, detoxing your body, and adding variety to your exercise routine.

Practicing yoga as a couple compounds these benefits. What’s more, is there are surprising benefits that you can only get from doing yoga alongside your partner. Some studies show that this activity increases relationship satisfaction and improves sex life.

Think of practicing couples yoga as an opportunity to connect and be present in a way apart from your regular, busy lives.

Not only is there built-in accountability to complete this yoga challenge for two, but a helpful partner can also watch your alignment and help you progress in your new yoga abilities.

Practicing couples yoga presents an opportunity to discuss your health goals together and create a strategy on how to strengthen your yoga practice and overall health.

about the 2-week couples yoga challenge

Our Couples Yoga Challenge , like many programs we create, began as an experiment. We are engineers, after all. Alex “strongly disliked” practicing yoga. However, she realized this was mainly true because she was terrible at it.

Would you agree that sometimes we dislike the things that we are not good at?

Well, we put this theory to the test with 2-weeks of daily yoga, and we learned many positive lessons from the experiment.

Mostly that yoga is challenging and humbling. Furthermore, it quickly provides noticeable progress and an incredible feeling of calmness after each session. It was a bonus that we got to spend quality time together as we created this partner yoga challenge.

Challenge Details

The 14-day Couples Yoga Challenge is suitable for both beginners and intermediate yogis. We have been practicing yoga together for five years. Even so, we still consider ourselves intermediate at best.

You’ll follow 30-minute, daily yoga workout videos that progress from the basics through muscle recovery through yoga cardio.

The workouts are video-based for an at-home workout and are available through a free, 2-week trial of Beachbody on Demand.

We curated the printable couple yoga challenge calendar and poses to expose couples to a variety of yoga styles and instructors. Above all, we wanted to help couples quickly see and feel results from practicing yoga from home.  

No equipment is required other than your yoga mat. Also included are five of our favorite partner poses that you can practice together.

What’s Included?

Our couple yoga challenge includes the following:

  • Access to the streamed, at-home workouts through a free trial of Beachbody On Demand
  • A printable 14-day calendar with 14 different yoga workouts to stream at-home, each 10-36 minutes in length
  • Areas to write down notes after each individual yoga session
  • Our “Dos” and “Don’ts” tips for the partner yoga challenge
  • A place to record your goal and intention for the week, where you can see it and review daily
  • Five couples yoga challenge poses to practice during the 2-week program!

When you sign up we’ll be in touch with you right away. Plus, we’ll be available for support during the 14-day yoga challenge.

Partner Yoga Challenge Intentions

We encourage all couples to do their best to complete the 14-day calendar fully and set intentions for the challenge. You can do so on the printable calendar that we send when you enroll.

To maximize the benefits of the yoga challenge for 2, make sure to remove all distractions. Keep your phones in a separate room and give your practice your full attention.

Start each couples yoga workout with open minds and be thankful for your body throughout.

After, discuss what you learned from the day’s program. Make a note of any improvements (or imbalances) that you’re experiencing. Lastly, take note of how your mood, skill level, or confidence has improved on your printed calendar. 

Couples yoga is a chance to explore and restore your bodies. Take these first 14-days as an opportunity to kickstart your practice together. From there, we recommend making yoga as a couple a lifelong practice. 

Why The couple yogA Challenge

Although we don’t love yoga, we understand it’s critical for long term mobility. According to the Chinese proverb, “For every 1-inch of extension gained, you gain 10-years of life.”

We want to live long, active, and fulfilling lives together, and there’s no better vehicle for us than through practicing yoga. Yoga encompasses the full body while simultaneously enhancing strength, balance, and flexibility, all in a single workout.

We regularly re-take the yoga challenge. We’re confident that the Couples Yoga Challenge is the best way to kickstart a lifelong yoga practice with your partner.

We all know about the incredible physical benefits of yoga, but you might not be aware of the emotional and relationship benefits of doing yoga with your partner. 

Yoga releases a chemical that acts as a natural anti-anxiety drug, which makes us more aware and in the present. Studies show that improved mindfulness yields higher relationship satisfaction.

What’s more, is therapists are using partner yoga to strengthen the sexual intimacy and closeness of couples.

Lastly, doing yoga as a couple means making time for more physical contact. Wellness experts at Loyola University concluded that this translates to improved sex life.

The Couple Yoga Challenge is right for you if…

  • You want couples yoga for beginners that can be done together at home.
  • You hate yoga, but know that you want more of it in your life.
  • One of you likes yoga, and the other does not.
  • You want to experience a new, healthy habit with your partner.
  • You don’t think it’s possible to gain confidence in your yoga practice in 2-weeks.

If the timing isn’t right for a 2-week yoga challenge right now, start dabbling with our favorite couples yoga poses. 

Recommended Yoga Mats

The only mat we can strongly recommend is pictured below. We use it for yoga and all of our workout routines. We love it because it’s travel-sized, and we need to be able to take our yoga workouts everywhere.

It’s extremely durable for indoor or outdoor use. The quality material is even resistant to bug spray and sunscreen. As former materials engineers, we know that’s a feat. Lastly, every mat sold equals a tree planted.  

We used our first set of these mats for over three years and only replaced them because they became less grippy. That says a lot because we use them daily (for HIIT, core, yoga, and lifting workouts) and clean them regularly.

If you only plan to use a home studio or don’t mind traveling with a larger mat, this mat is hands-down the best (our opinion but the reviews speak volumes). This mat offers the same quality but more padding.
