Acro-Yoga: The New Couples Therapy

Lena Dunham does it. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen does it. Even Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo do it. It's Acro-Yoga.

The latest fitness craze is touted as "the new couples therapy." So with all this hype--- we had to give it a try.... We used the fitspot app to find Megan Kinney-- an Acro-Yoga instructor to put us through the paces. We didn't need a lot of yoga experience... Just had to trust each other.

"It's like thai massage, mixed with yoga, mixed with acrobatics, it has playfulness of acrobatics. The breath and stretching of yoga and it can be therapeutic. We get into some more exercises it can be about honoring your partner," Kinney said.

The most challenging part for us... Was deciding who would be the "base" and who would be the "flyer"

Once we resolved our trust issues... The poses were relatively easy. We lifted each other up... And dropped each other like a sack of potatoes
We learned our limits and how much we actually like each other. You have to find your center of gravity, or figure out your relationship issues upright.

One thing's for sure.... Acro-yoga will help you step up your Instagram game!
