Deepening Your Love

Supporting Aliveness and Growth in Intimate Relationships

Grow Your Love

Posted By on February 19, 2010

We wanted to give you a head’s up, in case you missed it in the magazine, on a real good article from Yoga Journal entitled Grow Your Love. Lots of wisdom from a solid handful of couples (yours truly included) who share the similarities and useful awarenesses between the practice of Yoga and the journey of Relationship.

Here is a little snippet to whet your appetite:

“It’s no secret that relationships require work, but, as in yoga, you can find a happy balance between effort and ease when you apply your awareness. “A lot of people feel like, ‘If you loved me, we wouldn’t have to work at this,’” Feldman says, but he thinks that’s an unrealistic attitude. The trick,when it feels like too much effort, is to find more ease. To help couples with this, Feldman and his wife help their clients discover “love rituals”—small gestures practiced up to three times a day for two to three minutes at a time—so they can reconnect with the partner as a source of pleasure rather than pain.”

Hope you enjoy!

    Joel and Kate,
    Went to to see your article.
    1st of all great site. But could not find your article.
    Even though i am not a Yoga student…was tempted to sign up.
    That’s a good thing.
    Do you have a link so we can see your whole article.
    Congrats on the well deserved recognition.

    Thank you Kathi, you’re a sweetheart. I don’t know what happened, but clicking on the “Grow Your Love” link still takes me to the article. Please let me know if this isn’t working.

    This is great, so happy for you and the exposure it provides with the great work that you and Kate do so well. At every event we share with
    you and Kate, you show up real and honest, it takes work, but the love rituals Dave and I have created have taken us through the most
    disconnected times, just when we think its done we cannot do anymore, we go back to the basics of your teachings and peel the next layer of the onion.
    We love you both and thank you for your work. We are grateful you and Kate are in our lives.—-Pammi

  4. Love needs nurturing and tender loving care too, like many things in this world. In order to have a love that will transcend time and seasons, it is essential to work on it together as a couple and individually.
