Breathing Together: Simple Exercises To Improve Your Relationship

Partner breathing exercises are a great way to strengthen the bond between you and your significant other. These exercises not only promote physical and mental health, but they also provide an opportunity for emotional connection and intimacy. Here are a few exercises you can try with your partner_

Synchronous breathing

Sit or lie down facing your partner, with your eyes closed. Take a deep breath in and exhale out together. Repeat this for several minutes, focusing on the sound and sensation of your breath. As you practice this exercise, you will find that your breath begins to synchronize, which can create a sense of unity and connection.

Breathing together

Sit or lie down facing your partner, and place one hand on their chest and the other on their stomach. As they breathe in, feel their chest and stomach rise, and as they breathe out, feel them fall. After a few minutes, switch roles so that your partner can feel your breath. This exercise allows you to not only physically connect with your partner but also to become aware of their body and breath, which can promote empathy and understanding.

Breathing mirror

One partner takes a deep breath in and exhales out, and the other partner follows. Then the second partner does the same, and the first partner follows. This exercise helps to focus the attention on the partner, and to create a sense of unity and connection.

Four-square breathing

Both partners sit across from each other and take turns leading a four-part breath. The four parts of the breath consist of inhaling, holding, exhaling and holding the breath out. This exercise can help to regulate the breath and calm the mind, which can be especially beneficial when one or both partners are feeling anxious or stressed.

Take a few minutes each day to practice these exercises together, and notice the positive impact they have on your relationship. Remember that it is important to start with basic exercises and then progressing as you feel comfortable.

Have a great day, and don’t forget to breathe!
