I want to learn to visualize better. Is this possible?

I don't seem to have the capability to visualize things in my head. I'd like to. Is this possible to learn? If not, how can I get more out of meditation when I lack this ability?

My partner and I took a yoga class where there was a relaxation section at the end. He found it very relaxing; I was a little bored. I realized afterward that it was because he is a good visualizer. When they said 'picture yourself on a beautiful beach' he could actually see a picture in his head like he was watching a movie. I can't do this and I am a little jealous. If you asked me to 'picture' a beach, I would not actually see a picture, it would be more like just thinking about the word.
Is there a way to learn how to visualize better? If not, is there a way I could use meditation differently to get more out of it? He has this great relaxation effect from it and I'd really like to have that.
