Do What Works: Relationship Advice from an AcroYogi

In the practice of yoga, as in life, it’s the moments when we work together that can inspire the most change in us as individuals. In this clip, Jenny Sauer-Klein, co-founder of AcroYoga, talks about the principle of doing what works. To deal with the inevitable challenges and miscommunications that happen when individuals become partners, we have to leave room for the unexpected. When we let go of assumptions and embrace the discovery of what works best between these two people at this moment, that’s when we allow the relationship — and each other — to grow.

This video is part of a series sponsored by Gaiam TV in collaboration with Big Happy Day. BHD founder Kasey Luber interviews yoga teachers across the nation to bring you their best advice, whether you’re a yoga teacher, a seasoned yogi or a beginner.

  2. I’m really glad you shared this video. I’ve been a member of various relationship websites for years now and I’ve never came across it! I’m glad I did though, it’s extremely helpful to my current situation. I’ve also personally invested time in Yoga from a number of years ago, and I can’t preach about it enough.

    I’ll be coming back to this blog in the future! It’s content is extremely eye-opening.

  3. Thanks for the post. Often people can get too caught up in how to make their relationship work perfectly, when in fact, it isn’t supposed to. It’s how you get through the tougher situations that defines you.
