We all know that yoga is good for our health, and part of that health includes those intimate moments that occur behind closed doors when the sun goes down. Or in the middle of the day on the kitchen counter. I’m not here to judge! Yoga has been shown to improve your libido, and strengthen the intensity of your orgasm, by increasing the circulation and blood flow to your pelvic region. To get you moving and ready for your next rendezvous, here are six yoga poses for better sex.
#1: Happy Baby Pose
Begin by lying on your back on the floor, bringing your knees to your armpits while holding your feet. When properly held this pose will stretch your hamstrings and release the tension in your lower back. This pose is also known for reducing stress and opening up your pelvis, thus increasing the flexibility and movement in your hips.
#2: Downward Dog Pose
Begin on your hands and knees. Stretch your elbows as you lift your knees off the floor. Just the view that your partner will have of you in this position will be beneficial for improving your sex life! Showing off your assets aside, this pose is helpful in improving upper body strength and releasing tension throughout your entire back.
#3: Bridge Pose
For this pose you will begin on your back with your knees bent. Lift your pelvis off the floor and bring your thighs up parallel to the floor, forming a bridge shape with your body. This pose focuses on the muscles in your pelvis. This can help you gain better control over your orgasms and increase their intensity.
#4: Legs Up The Wall Pose
You can perform this pose with or without the wall, depending on your strength. Just lie on your back with your legs straight in the air above your shoulders. Be aware that you are bracing your weight on your shoulders, not on your neck. Shoulder stand poses, such as this one, are helpful in calming your mind and stimulating hormone production.
#5: Lotus Pose
For this pose you will sit cross-legged on the floor. With your hands pull both feet up and rest them on the top of the opposite thigh. Lotus pose is good for relieving stress and clearing your mind. It is also very good at increasing the range of motion in your hips, allowing your legs to open more freely.
#6: Seated Wide-Legged Forward Bend
While in a seated position, bring your legs apart as wide as you can. While keeping your spine straight, and feet flexed up, fold forward towards the floor. The deep groin stretch from this pose increases circulation to the pelvic region. This will help increase your libido as well as your hip and groin flexibility.
These yoga poses, and their benefits, are not just for the ladies either. Yoga can help improve sex for both men and women. So the next time you “Netflix and Chill” you might want to consider putting on a yoga workout instead!
