I struggled with this a bit at first cause my boyfriend is such a physically strong guy so he was quite skeptical about doing yoga. Eventually I managed to convince him that this could be a way for us to bond and reconnect. So every now and then he joins me for my morning sessions

That's really fantastic. I still can't get my fiance to even try it with me.

My girlfriend and I met in yoga class so it wasn't hard to get her to go. It's great that we get to do something we love together.

We all know actions speak louder than words so lead by example and show your loved one how calm and together you are becoming.

This has been a hard one for me. My boyfriend thinks it's for girls so he doesn't even want to try it. He always says no if I ask him to try.

I asked her to go with me and just try it out. She's been hearing a lot of good things about yoga and went with me. The rest is history.

Yoga at home can really develop a personal practice, but it can also show your partner how accessible yoga really is. Showing your dedication to yoga will impress your partner and at the very least make them curious as to what it's all about.

I was the one who went with her to yoga out of curiosity. It seemed very peaceful and I wanted to see what people were raving about it. Now, I'm into yoga myself.

I have no one right now so this isn't a problem for me. I go to yoga because I get to meet a lot of people who share the same interests as me.

He tries to go to yoga classes but he's just starting out. I know he still prefers the gym but he's willing to try it with me is good enough.

I try to show him the beginner poses and encourage him to try it. We can do it at home first so he doesn't get conscious.

We went to yoga together to try it out. We both didn't know what to expect so we were doing those awkward poses together and practiced together at home. Turned out pretty good for us.

To be fair to my husband, he went with me a few times. It's really not his thing. He likes the gym and sports better.

I asked her to go with me and she did. The yoga studio was near our home and we walked in and signed up. Simple as that.

I beg him to go with me. That's what I do. It worked a few times but not anymore. :-))

My wife is a yoga enthusiast and she asked me to go for health reasons. I still go even if it's awkward for me but I just want her to see I'm trying.

I teach him what I learned in class. We get to do it at home so he doesn't have to worry about how silly he looks. When he thinks he's ready, we could go to a yoga class.

Consider teaching your partner a win-win situation. You get some valuable teaching experience and your partner gets a much needed, loving treat from you. They'll feel special with you helping them.

We compromise. If he does go to yoga with me, we get to do something he wants to do. It's a fair trade.

I've told her the benefits and it's a chance for us to do something together for a change. She didn't want to at first but she eventually gave in. She got to enjoy it as well.
