Support the back with your hands on your tailbone. Take a deep breath in, lift through the heart as you carefully arch backward to connect with your friend.

Double-Candle yoga pose

This one is tricky to get into without taking your legs over into plough first – so only attempt this one with students who have good body control and awareness.

Have fun with these and see what other heart shapes you can create together!
