Is the downward dog the secret behind the Beckhams' happy marriage?

Ever wondered how the Beckhams manage to stay strong despite every scandal thrown at them?

Well, Now can exclusively reveal their secret: couples’ power yoga sessions.

Both David, 35, and Victoria, 36, attend the class at The Sports Club LA in Beverly Hills twice
a week.

Victoria and David do power yoga classes for couples for an hour about twice a week,’ an insider tells Now.

‘It’s a very intimate experience. You have to learn to become one entity entirely. You stretch, breathe and move as one – it’s great for couples and is probably better than talking in a way.

‘There’s also meditation and reiki healing involved, which is an ancient hands-on energy technique. They also chant mantras together.’

It’s clearly working a treat because their relationship is stronger than ever.

Last month, the couple, who’ve been married 11 years, were dealt a blow when prostitute Irma Nici claimed to have slept with David – a claim fiercely denied by the couple.

But in the face of adversity, you can always rely on a few sun salutations to keep your spirits alive.

‘They started taking the classes about a year ago and it’s astonishing how in tune with each other they are these days,’ says a close pal.

‘There’s now a huge interest in the classes and that’s down to how good the couple look and how close they seem.

‘People think “Wow!” when they see them and want to be as close to their partner as Victoria is with David.’

As well as yoga, Posh also recently tried cardio sculpting with David. Sounds exhausting but who’d want to disappoint a sweaty Becks, eh, Posh?
