Five Ways Yoga Can Improve Your Sex Life

Oohhhh yoga! How is it that this practice can be so full of amazing benefits?

Yoga teachers will often tell you that whatever you learn on your mat can be taken off the mat, but it can also be taken to the bedroom.

Gets your energy up!

Most people think that yoga is very zen and is all about some nice stretching, and it definitely can be. But, what a lot of people don’t know is that can be extremely energizing!

Doing all those intense stretches and holding poses for longer than maybe you would have liked will really pump your heart rate up, especially in a heated room. After having a 5 minute savasana you’ll leave that studio ready to take on the day.

Imagine what you can do with all that new energy. Falling asleep on the couch and missing out on sexy time will be a thing of the past.

We all have a sensual side.

Through yoga you develop a sense of body awareness. In most yoga classes you are encouraged to get out of your head and stay in tune with your body and the sensations. This can really play a key role when it comes to losing yourself with your partner.

Better breath, better orgasm.

In the body, there are energy centers. One of them specifically is good for strengthening the pelvic floor. It’s called the mula bandha. In women, it feels like a kegel exercise, or the muscles you engage when you really have to pee.

So if you practice this breath lock in yoga or even during meditation, you can tone and strengthen your pelvic muscles so you can have mind blowing orgasms!

Feelin’ good and looking good!

I’m sure everyone could agree that sex is much more enjoyable when you love how you look. Not only does yoga, if you practice regularly, tone up your muscles and leave a fresh glow on your face, but it also can really calm the judgements that we are so quick to make about ourselves.

You’ll naturally want to start treating yourself better – whether it’s how you think about yourself or the food you decide to put into your body.

Confidence will reign supreme in the sheets!

Flexibility on point!

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a leg thrown over their head every now and then?

If you want to be a little bit more limber to enjoy a more playful ride or position, then yoga is the answer. Stay consistent and you will notice a difference in all kinds of places!
