Couple Yoga Gains Popularity in Delhi: An Intimate Way to Bond

Amidst the burgeoning landscape of yoga practices, ranging from aerial yoga to acro yoga, one modality that has gained significant traction in the Indian capital of Delhi is couple yoga, also known as partner yoga.

A Sensible Alternative to Conventional Fitness

Disillusioned with the strenuous demands of conventional workouts at the gym or dance classes, growing numbers of couples in Delhi are embracing couple yoga as a way to bond and improve their overall well-being.

Couple yoga stands out for its accessibility, providing a non-intimidating entry point into yoga. The practice involves performing asanas (postures) designed for two, allowing partners to assist and support each other, eliminating the need for a trainer or an external source of motivation.

“Yoga is more relaxing than most fitness regimes,” says Archa Modi, a resident of Gurgaon who has been practicing couple yoga with her husband for the past six months. “When you do it together, you train in poses that allow you to help each other stretch. So, even on days when your trainer is absent, you don’t have an excuse to skip your workout session.”

Benefits Beyond Physical Fitness

Beyond its physical benefits, couple yoga offers profound advantages for the relationship. It provides an opportunity for couples to share an intimate experience that strengthens their connection. “Doing yoga can actually help in strengthening your relationship,” says Shabina Kundiyal of Gurgaon, who practices yoga with her husband. “You get that feeling of togetherness that you don’t get when you’re just working out together.”

A Refreshing Change for Experienced Yogis

Even for those who have been practicing yoga for years, couple yoga offers a refreshing change. “When you do something for years, you need to bring in some change,” says Dinesh Dagar, a Delhi-based yoga expert. “We started doing yoga together, and it became a big hit. We still discover from each other that there’s so much more we can do.”

Manisha Kharbanda, a resident of Delhi, echoes this sentiment. “I started doing yoga when I was young, but I discovered many things I didn’t know about it after I got married,” says Kharbanda. “Doing yoga together was a lot of fun and informative, and it definitely helped us know each other better in the initial days of our marriage.”


Couple yoga has emerged as a popular and transformative practice in Delhi, offering numerous benefits for both physical and emotional well-being. By facilitating deeper bonding, reducing stress, and providing a shared experience, it has become a preferred way for couples to connect and improve their overall quality of life.
