Here's an idea for yoga teachers who want to help people improve relationships or creating a special class like partner classes. This yogic practice can affect and enhance every aspect of your life. Practitioners have improved flexibility, strength and stamina, along with an overall positive attitude towards life and self-confidence. Yogic techniques seek to provide an outlet for negative thoughts and emotions which are then replaced with positive thoughts and emotions. Over time, practitioners feel a sense of inner peace that will inevitably shine through in their interactions with others.
Relationships can be complicated, whether they are romantic or friendly, same sex or opposite. Each person brings a unique set of values, personality and background to the situation. In order to interact successfully with others, you must have gratitude, empathy and self-confidence. This helps develop and maintain these positive attributes.
Yoga can help when it comes to managing the conflicts that appear in relationships, both large and small. Sometimes all it takes is a deep breath to let your emotions settle. This teaches you to see the situation from another person's point-of-view and to reach a healthy compromise if necessary. For lingering conflicts, yogic life provides an outlet for releasing frustration so you don't take it out on the other person.
Yoga also fosters the ability to be grateful for the people, places and events in your daily life. When you take the time to honor and appreciate your friendships and personal relationships, it can only help the relationship grow. When you focus on the positive aspects of the relationship and the other person, the conflicts you encounter seem less important.
The breathing and meditative aspects of yoga allow you to find a sense of peace and calm on a regular basis. The more you are able to find this inner peace, the more natural it becomes until it is just a normal part of who you are. When you exude an inner peace, it often comes across as confidence to other people. Others will want to be around you treat them with the respect and dignity that an inner peace allows you to do.
Romantic relationships can often be the most complicated of all, as two people uncover their true and total selves to each other. As these relationships progress, people often forget to treat the other with respect, gratitude and kindness. Yoga can remind us of the importance of treating your mate with love and respect.
