12 yoga poses to help you connect better with loved ones

I find yoga to be absolutely essential to help me transition to an emotional space where I am much more open and empathetic towards others.

It is amazing how differently a conversation with a loved one can proceed when your mind isn’t racing around, trying to defend and protect itself. Once your mind slows, you are able to detach from your ego. This helps you to listen carefully to the other person’s point of view, allowing for a much more meaningful conversation.

It is no secret that once your loved one feels like they have been listening to, they are much more reciprocal towards hearing your stories and points of view. It’s a win-win!

Why not try a quick yoga session before you do things with your partner/parents/children/etc. that normally causes conflict? This small change has certainly changed my life for the better!

In my opinion, the yoga poses that are best for quickly releasing tension and becoming more aligned with my environment are hip openers, heart openers and balancing poses.

Here’s a few examples to get you started:

Hip opening yoga poses

Hip openers help to release any built up tension and emotion.

This helps you clear the air of any unnecessary pain and resentment you may be holding on to when you communicate with your loved ones. This clear air helps you avoid taking out your frustrations on them. It also allows for more healing conversations to occur so that deeper tensions can start to be resolved.

Heart opening yoga poses

There is nothing more destructive to a relationship than a closed heart. As soon as emotional barriers are put up, even the most straight forward interaction with someone can turn into a battle. If you want to connect better with your loved ones, it’s important to open up your heart.

Think of how you ease into a yoga position. Once you relax and start opening up, you are able to move deeper into the pose. The same thing applies to relationships. Be willing to be vulnerable.

The following asanas might make you feel uncomfortable at first, but I guarantee that over time, it will increase your capacity for love.

Balancing yoga poses

Keeping a balanced perspective is an important skill when negotiating with loved ones. Often emotions can get in the way of a meaningful conversation.

Balancing poses help you to tune out from all distractions and helps you prepare to focus your attention on one thing at a time. This is essential when showing your loved ones that they are the most important thing in the world to you.
