Ah, the dating game. If you are on the market looking for love, doing the mating dance is both incredibly exhilarating and totally horrendous. Dating in the 21st century has become fraught with social confusion and technological interference. However, if you’ve made it past two dates with a promising prospect we have the perfect third date for you: AcroYoga Class.
Why AcroYoga makes for the perfect third date:
- No Phones Allowed: Notification interruptions begone! A yoga class requires you put away the phone and focus fully on each other. Undivided attention is hard to come by these days, and as they say, “Attention is the most basic form of love.”
- Break the touch barrier: If you haven’t already broken the “touch barrier” with a bit of hand-holding or hugging, then AcroYoga class will get you there! You and your date will get comfortable with holding on to each other in a totally non-sexual, zen setting.
- Build trust: AcroYoga has been called “The Yoga of Trust”, and for good reason! You and your date will take turns physically supporting each other, which forces you to have faith in that your partner won’t drop you. The foundation of every healthy relationship is trust! So you might as well start now.
- Show off your skills! AcroYoga gives you & your date the opportunity to show off your fitness without seeming “braggy”. Impress your date, and prepare to be impressed in return!
- Embarrass yourselves: Yes, this is a good thing! AcroYoga can lead to some flops, falls, and embarrassing moments – but that will only make you more endearing in your partner’s eyes. “Researchers found embarrassment as a signal of kind and generous behavior. Feeling ashamed indicated that you care about others and have a desire not to hurt them… Observers can feel safe that an embarrassed individual will be less likely to take advantage of them or be unfaithful” (source).
- Yoga Pants: Either you or your date (or both!) will likely be wearing yoga pants, and your butt(s) will look fantastic.
