This is a routine for your own yoga practice. It does not require your partner. Instead, it's meant to give you time to develop your rapport with your own body & mind. It will also develop strength and flexibility in key areas. You'll get the best results if you practice this routine 3 - 4 times a week. If you don't have time for that, try doing little bits of the routine throughout the day, whenever you have a minute. For that, the postures that are grouped together on a line of the page make great mini-routines. Of course, this doesn't mean you can't enlist your partner's help!
Consider practicing in the nude. If you're not used to it, this can be distracting at first, but, over time it can make you feel much more 'at home' in your body. This feeling of naturalness while naked will transfer into more freedom and comfortableness in the bedroom.
Consider letting your partner watch you do your routine sometimes. It'll keep your practice from getting boring and it will peak their interest in doing yoga, (and in doing other things!) This can be especially enticing if it's done with the understanding that it's 'look but don't touch!' But, hey, if it does end up there, yoga teaches us to also 'go with the flow'!
Don't worry about how your body looks. We all have lumps and bumps
where we wish there weren't any, and we're all missing curves and lumps where
we wish there were some! Your partner is not going to care! They'll love the chance to enjoy your workouts! They'll love that you're doing more and more to make your love life great!
If you're doing your yoga and start feeling unhappy about the way you look, simply notice the feeling, take a nice, slow breath in and go back to paying attention to the stretch and to your breathing.
Notice how your body relaxes as you breathe out, which will allow you to stretch a little farther.
Do not stretch so much that you feel burning or pain.
If you feel like your body has hit a concrete wall, then you're at your limit. When
you get to that point, simply breathe and feel your body relaxing for a couple
more breaths, then let the posture go.
Relax completely in between repetitions, feeling your muscles letting go of the stretch, feeling them relaxing. The full routine will take about an hour.
