Sex and yoga

Recently we are researching for our coming themed party. It’s about how yoga may improve the quality of our sex life. I am not into yoga myself but I am not against it neither. If it does help improve the quality of sex, I don’t see why not give it a try! ?

Couple yoga/partner yoga can be fun too. One of the articles I read recommends the following 6 yoga poses that make you better at sex. You wanna try?

***Cat Pose (Marjaryasana) and Cow Pose (Bitilasana)***

Start this pose on all fours. Make sure your wrists are underneath your shoulders and your knees are in line with your hips. Keep your spine neutral and your weight balanced evenly across your body.

Inhale as you look up and let your stomach curve toward the floor. Lift your eyes, chin, and chest up as you stretch.

Exhale, tucking your chin into your chest, and draw your navel toward your spine. Round your spine toward the ceiling.

Move slowly between the two for 1 minute.

***Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)***

Lie on your back.

Bend both knees and position your feet hip-width apart with your knees in line with your ankles.

Put your arms flat on the floor with your palms against the ground and spread your fingers.

Lift your pelvic region off the ground, allowing your torso to follow, but keep your shoulders and head on the floor.

Hold the pose for 5 seconds.


***Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana)***

Lie on your back.

With an exhale, bend your knees up toward your stomach.

Inhale and reach up to grab the outside of your feet, and then widen your knees. You can also use a belt or towel looped over your foot to make it easier.

Flex your feet, pushing your heels upward as you pull down with your hands to stretch

***One-Legged Pigeon (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)***

Start on the floor on all floors.

Pick up your right leg and move it in front of your body so your lower leg is at a 90-degree angle from your body.

Stretch your left leg out behind you on the floor with the top of your foot facing down and your toes pointing back.

Exhale as you lean forward, shifting your body weight. Use your arms to support your weight. If this is uncomfortable, try folding up a blanket or a pillow and putting it under your right hip to keep your hips level as you stretch.

Release and repeat on the other side.

***Child’s Pose (Balasana)***

Start by kneeling on the floor. With your big toes touching, widen your knees until they’re around hip-width apart.

Exhale and lean forward. Place your hands in front of you and stretch out, allowing your upper body to relax between your legs. Try to touch your forehead to the mat, but you can also rest your head on a block or pillow.

Relax in this position for 30 seconds to a few minutes.

***Corpse Pose (Savasana)***

Lay on your back with your feet spread and palms facing up. Relax every part of your body from your face to your fingers and toes.

Stay in this pose for as long as you want.
