Sex is not just physical, it’s mental. If you’re not in the state of mind to have great sex, you won’t. You’re thinking, wait a minute! Yoga and sex? Yes. Yoga is not just a great way to relieve stress, stretch your body and learn relaxation and meditation techniques, it’s great for sex too!
Research shows that woman lose interest in sex because they cannot stay focused. When a woman cannot focus on having great sex, they’re not likely to have great sex. Yoga helps by understanding your body and controlling your mind. You can do yoga on your own or with your partner. Here are some yoga positions that will have you on your way to a better sex life.
Downward Dog (also known as the Adho Mukha Svanasana)
The downward dog is one of the easiest yoga poses. This pose not only helps your mind and wakes up your body, you can feel the stress melt away when you master this wonderful pose. Ladies, if your man isn’t interested in doing this yoga pose with you, do it in front of him (after you practice for a while).
Straddle Pose (also known as the Upavistha Konasana)
Do you want to improve your libido? This is the yoga pose for you. The straddle post will increase the blood that flows to your pelvis. When you have better blood circulation, vitality and energy follow. Studies indicate that any circulation below your waist is connected to creating arousal. The more blood pumping through you, the more you will begin to relax, stress and feel better about yourself.
The Lizard Pose (Utthan Pristhasana)
This pose is a great yoga pose to help you calm your mind. When your mind is spinning out of control, if you can, stop what you’re doing and do a lizard pose for a few minutes. As in most yoga poses, focus on your breathing. Take a deep breath in through your nose and count to five. Release your breath counting to five through your mouth. When you are focused on your breathing, it makes the yoga post much easier. This will help your sexual relationship by building stamina and flexibility.
The Child’s Pose (Balasana)
Stop thinking and start focusing on your body. To do the child’s pose, get on your knees, legs spread slightly apart, lean down with your head on a mat or the floor and put your arms straight out in front of you. Relax. When you cannot relax your mind – stop it from thinking about all the things you have to do today, it’s no wonder you can’t concentrate on sex. When you sit in the child’s pose, learn to control your thoughts. This yoga position is very relaxing and will help you get in touch with your body.
The Goddess Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana)
This pose is also a beginner’s yoga pose. It can help you with menopause and PMS symptoms. Those are two culprits of a woman losing interest in sex. This pose will help your reproductive organs. It will also help you get comfortable in a precarious position and mastering this yoga move will lead to incredible sex.
The Eagle Pose (Garudasana)
Practice the eagle pose a few times and then be sure to do it front of your husband. The eagle pose simulates wrapping one of your legs around the other, like a twist. The effect of releasing this yoga pose results in blood going to your cervix. Although this is a bit more advanced than a beginner’s yoga pose, after a little practice, you’ll have it mastered in no time.
