The Move: Lean on Me
"Have your fiancé come onto his shins, bring his sit bones (butt) onto his heels, then lean forward into child's pose. If he is very inflexible, he can roll a blanket behind the thighs and place a block (or a book) underneath the forehead. Line your spine up against his, with your buttocks sliding slightly down the curve of his lower back as you reach/stretch your arms strongly alongside your ears. Work together to find the greater sense of ease, release and opening in the pose."
Physical Benefits: "For him, a great release of the lower back, creates length in the entire spine, deeply relaxing. For you, opens the entire front body, allows the breath to fully expand and fill the chest."
Love Connection: "There is a great sense of trust that happens in this pose. For him, it's trusting that you're taking care to find the correct placement and movement of weight. For you, it's allowing the feeling of support in his body underneath. Since there is no visual contact, the communication has to come from somewhere else—the heart!"
