Humpday Health: Couples yoga or pilates can be a great Valentine’s Day gift


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — We’re just one week away from Valentine’s Day, so you may be scrambling to find a gift for your loved one. We’ve got an idea for you, couples yoga or pilates!

Shelley Jackson of Axis Yoga Studio in Wilmington said, “Outside of the traditional Valentine gift, like the cards and the candy, why not take the time to do something that you haven’t done and actually dive into something with one another?”

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you may be thinking of what you’d like to get for your special someone.

Instead of the classic gifts, like chocolate or roses, why not bring your significant other to a yoga or pilates class?

Not only is it a great workout, but it can help the mind as well.

“That can be an extra special journey if you come with your loved one, to go through the practice with one another. And what better way to bond and to do something that’s actually very good for you mentally and physically. It’s a spiritual awakening, together,” said Jackson.

Jackson says you can burn plenty of calories in her class.

“In my hot pilates class, the average is between four and five hundred in a 55 minute class. So it’s a little different than probably what you would anticipate in a mind-body practice,” said Jackson.

On February 16th, you can check out an Acro Yoga Workshop at Axis with a partner. It’ll only cost you $20 a person.
