How to Turn Yoga Into Date Night

Best. Date. Ever.

We’ve already filled you in our favorite dirty little secret, but in case you need a quick refresher (because, speaking for ourselves, we haven’t been able to stop thinking about it), here it is: yoga is seriously good for your sex life. Great news, right? Before you can make that down dog-infused magic happen in the bedroom, though, you’ll need to woo your partner with an equally magical date night (or two). After all, we didn’t raise you to be rude.

Dinner and a movie is a classic combo, but why not shake up tradition — and your usual routine — with a yoga date? (P.S. This is an entirely rhetorical question, because we’re here to tell you that there is absolutely no reason not to give this a shot.)

A yoga date will get you and your partner moving, and experts say that couples who engage in physical activity together are happier and more emotionally bonded. Studies also show that workin’ on your fitness with an S.O. makes you work out harder and more efficiently. Plus, when you and your partner do physical activities together, you show a mutual concern for each other’s health and wellness, which makes it a lot easier for you both to achieve your fitness goals. Sounds like a win, win to us.

If you’re wondering how to turn yoga into a date night that doesn’t just feel like it’s part of your existing workout routine, we have five suggestions for you. Check ’em out below! These may seem like minor things, but trust us — they’ll go a long way toward making your night feel special and your date feel like a rock star.

  • Make it invite only. If you and your partner already practice yoga together regularly but you want to make this night feel a little more date-ish, consider sending him or her an e-vite to class! The gesture shows that you’re trying to turn up the romance, plus it’s super charming.
  • Set up a romantic at-home yoga night. Cue up a bulldog online class, light some candles, and line up your mats right in the living room.
  • Scope out a smoothie shop. Surprise your S.O. by stopping for a post-yoga treat. (And if you choose to stop for fro yo instead, we promise not to tell.)
  • Maintain the zen vibes with a walk. Savasana might be over, but you can still keep those happy vibes going outside of class. Instead of cooling down from your workout at home on the couch, take a walk! Getting fresh air is a great way to cap your night of yoga, plus you and your S.O. can get some hand holding in (s’cute, no?).
  • Experiment with partner yoga. Check out this link for five poses that will get you started!

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 I'm fairly new to practicing yoga. I love that I can access this from my home so I can get a nice 25-30 minute yoga session in right before I get ready for work. It helps me feel refreshed and energized for the day. I love the different levels and intensity of the sessions, so I can choose which type of class I want to take depending on the way my body feels. I've only been a member for a week but I'm loving this so far!

    bulldog online Rating: 4 out of 5 Good quality soft material. The white is nice and bright. Washed AMAZING! Had two big black stains and was able to get them out and my tank still looks new and white! Tank is a little boxy fitting but super cute with a side knot or back knot! The saying is a perfect reminder of how strong you are physically and mentally no matter where you are in your Bulldog journey! Excited to add to my new collection!!!

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 I took a class last week. It was creative, fun and set to great music. I don't particularly love practicing at home, preferring my studio. This has been a welcome addition to my routine. It changed my mind about streaming class.

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 No matter your level of yoga or fitness this IS for you!!! I love how it fits my most busy days and laid back! I can do it anywhere! Also I love how you feel stronger after only a short period of doing bulldog and also how it still challenges you months later! There is nothing like it! Love it!!
