Yoga can make you lithe and calm, but it can also help you with the wacky world of New York dating, says Brooklyn yoga instructor Daniella Rosales-Friedman.

Rosales-Friedman, who teaches at Bend & Bloom, Mala Yoga, and Go Yoga, is offering a workshop on Saturday, June 30 called “From Manduka to Match: A Yoga Workshop for the Single Girl,” where physical postures, meditation, and discussion will apply yogic principles to first date chit-chat and heartbreak recovery.

“Heart-opening poses are just the tip of the iceberg of what yoga can do for your love life,” says Rosales-Friedman

The only thing it can’t help you with is avoiding creeps on OkCupid.

“Flexibility and strength are very literal, but they’re also figurative,” she says. “As I got stronger from practicing yoga and could literally hold myself up, I started to also get bolder in relationships. Yoga makes you feel more stable, grounded, and inspired as a single lady.”

And she’s not the only one using a physical practice to aid soulmate seekers. Popular IntenSati instructor Lindsay Davis offered a no-couples-allowed session a few months ago called “Single and Sensational” and will bring the workshop back this August.

At the event, Rosales-Friedman is offering a safe space for sharing (and whining a little) and discovering a new tribe of BFFs who are in it for the same yoga-sisterhood reasons you are. Call her the Gabby Bernstein of yoga.

Why should you trust her take? Rosales-Friedman will use her eight years of single life in New York to inform the workshop—but she’s not single anymore. —Lisa Elaine Held

Yoga for the Single Girl, Saturday, June 30, 4:00–6:00 p.m., $25, Mala Yoga, 162 Court St. (at Amity St.), Cobble Hill, www.theinsidevoice.net
