We knew Daniella Rosales-Friedman was on to something when she launched “Yoga for the Single Girl” workshops over the summer, where yogic techniques were employed to tackle everything from first-date jitters to mending a broken heart.
Now, more studios are catching the love bug, using yoga as a launching pad for Cupid’s arrow.
Here are three fall events that will have you falling head over heels—and not just out of handstand.
1. Red Hot Speed Dating with SOUL
Reflections Yoga, October 3
Speed dating is better when you sit down with an already established common interest like love of triangle pose and vegan cupcakes. Plus, where else could you ask a potential mate about their dosha? $15, www.reflectionsyoga.com
2. Yoga for the Single Girl: Date Night Mini-Series
Mala Yoga, October 11 and 25
Rosales-Friedman leads you through a heart-opening yoga flow, followed by a Sex and the City-style girls night out on the town. Cosmos or kombucha? $30 for two-part series, www.malayoganyc.com
3. Yoga and Mindfulness for Authentic Relationships
Virayoga, October 13
Flow through your vinyasa with psychotherapist and yoga therapist Ira Israel, who will teach tools for cultivating loving, harmonious relationships and resolving conflicts with your significant other. Make-up yoga, anyone? $50 ($60 at the door), www.virayoga.com
