Shiva Shakti Venus Kriya

Venus Kriyas are powerful yogic techniques for partners that utilize the male and female polarities that exist in all of us.

Practice of Venus Kriyas can help to establish balance in a relationship, allow you the opportunity to connect with and support one another’s higher self, and develop the experience of Oneness between the two of you. The focus stays at the heart, projecting love and caring, with the highest good for both partners.

Before you begin follow the guidelines on How to Practice Venus Kriyas.

The Practice

Posture: Stand up and face your partner. Hold your partner's left hand. Both partners raise your right hands parallel to the floor. Right upper arms are parallel to the ground. Lift up your left leg and balance on your right leg. The left leg doesn’t touch the right leg.

Focus: Holding this position, let yourselves become as the god, Shiva, and the goddess, Shakti. Let your souls dance.

Eyes: Look into each other’s eyes.


Hold this posture for 3 minutes, changing legs if necessary. To end, inhale, exhale, and relax.
