David Beckham and wife Victoria have discovered another way to be intimate – by taking power yoga classes together. The notoriously trend-setting couple are said to enjoy couples classes regularly at the Beverly Hills Sport Club and believe that these sessions are bringing them closer together.
A source told Now magazine that the pair started taking the hour-long couples classes around a year ago and remarked that the sessions are a “very intimate experience” in which you have to “learn to become one entity entirely.” The source contended that stretching, moving and breathing as one could in some ways be better for the partners than talking together.
“It’s astonishing how in tune with each other they are these days”, the source also commented.

This is hardly surprising. Many of the positions of couple’s yoga require high levels of trust and balance. The back to back headstand position could go terribly wrong should one partner lose focus. Transitions from this position (including the back to back open headstand) involve relying on partners limbs for stability and balance. Yoga also promotes mental disciplines which can be very useful when dealing with the everyday strains of relationships. The aim of power yoga is to build body heat to enable to opening of the pores and thus, release unwanted toxins from the body. The physical health benefits of yoga seem endless but include improved posture, strength, dexterity, energy and endurance.
As well as yoga, the Beckham’s are also said to have incorporated other spiritual techniques in order to feel in touch with each other, including meditation, mantras and reiki healing (an ancient hands-on energy technique).
