Partner Yoga Poses

on July 7, 2013


Lunch Buddies love yoga!  So far, our experiences with yoga poses have been individual within the group.  Starting this fall, I would like for our group to try partner poses.  Partner yoga poses provide yet another platform for teaching the importance of getting along, being mindful (paying attention on purpose) when interacting with one another, working together/cooperation,being gentle with each other, and yes, perspective.

Shari Vilchez-Blatt at Karma Kids Yoga lists the following benefits of partner poses:

  • eye-contact  (Lunch Buddies call this “thinking with your eyes”)
  • trust
  • balance and coordination
  • teamwork
  • creativity
  • communication
  • FUN!

Go to  for examples of partner poses.



Doesn’t this Garden of Flowers pose look fun!


Here is a video of children practicing partner poses:


Attention parents of Lunch Buddies when you are shopping for back to school supplies please add a yoga mat to that list.
