Try this calming partner pose to stretch the chest, spine and hip flexors while strengthening the back and building a connection with those you love, courtesy of Susan Cline Lucey, owner of Evolution Prenatal & Family Yoga Center in Burlington and Essex Junction.

1. One partner curls into a little ball, called "rock pose".

2. The other partner lines up the base of his or her spine with the base of the partner's spine and lies back.

Try holding hands to the side or above the head for a deeper stretch! Can you feel your backs move into each other as you breathe?
