I met writer John Falk and his girlfriend Mara McFalls at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram, in Kerala, India, to document their first "love test," a series of gritty adventures designed to help take them out of their comfort zones and grow together. Here, while the two demonstrate their yoga skills, John cracks open one eye, displaying a hint of his sense of humor.
