Yoga helps build endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, and muscle control in all areas of the body, including the back, abdomen, and groin. It also improves self-confidence, self-awareness, and sensitivity. Regular practice of Sitting Wide-Legged Straddle, Viparita Karani, Child, Bridge, Lotus, Plow, Eagle, Goddess, Downward Dog, and Lizard poses will improve your sex life.

Have you ever wondered why people who practice yoga on a regular basis seem so happy and at peace? It could be because couples who do yoga frequently experience a huge boost in the overall quality of their sex lives. From increased stamina and flexibility to better self-confidence and heightened body sensitivity, the connection between yoga and long lasting sex is crystal clear. Yoga can benefit both men and women in the bedroom, so if you and your partner are looking for a way to spice things up between the sheets, it may be time to head to the yoga studio.

How Does Yoga Help Improve Sex

Boosts Stamina

It’s such a letdown to realize that you need to take a breather during sex because you simply don’t have the stamina to continue. Yoga employs techniques for building core stability and muscle control, all while making you breathe hard and build up a sweat. Your increased stamina can only lead to longer-lasting sex between you and your partner, and you’ll be thrilled to realize how much longer you can keep up with the rigorous demands of a healthy sex life.

Increases Endurance

Yoga teaches muscle control in all areas of the body, including the pelvis and groin. Men who experience the common problem of premature ejaculation will find that they can better control muscles in the groin and pelvis, which can lead to increased endurance during sexual performance. Women benefit from the same muscle control techniques, and many women find that female-dominant sex positions that were too difficult to hold for long in the past become easier after learning yoga.

Improves Strength and Flexibility

One of the most marked characteristics in people who practice yoga is a more advanced level of flexibility, which can really come in handy if you want to get a little more creative with your repertoire of sexual positions. If you’ve ever looked at a Kama Sutra and thought that some of the positions seemed outlandishly difficult, you might think again once yoga improves your range of motion and flexibility.

Top 10 Yoga Poses to Help Improve Your Sex Life

Though all yoga positions have their benefits, yoga instructors recommend these as the top 10 positions for improved sexual function.

1. Sitting Wide-Legged Straddle Pose – (Upavistha Konasana)

This pose really amps up the blood flow to the groin area. In a sitting position with flexed feet, spread the legs as wide as comfortably possible. Engage the thigh muscles as you press the legs into the floor. You may either sit up straight in this pose, or you can draw your chest downward toward to the floor for a deeper exercise.

2.Viparita Karani Pose (Viparita Karani Pose)

This pose focuses on circulation in the pelvic area. Lie on your back on the floor with straight legs held in the air, perpendicular to the body. You may also use a wall to support the legs and help to keep them stick-straight.

3.Child’s Pose (Shishuasana)

Shishuasana

Child’s Pose – Shishuasana

This pose helps to relax both the mind and body, and can effectively clear away the stress of the day to allow you to focus on your partner. From a kneeling position, sit on your heels and let your back arch gently. You may stretch your arms out in front of you on the floor or bring them to rest with your palms beside your feet.

4.Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana)

Setu Bandhasana

Bridge Pose – Setu Bandhasana

The Bridge Pose targets the muscles at the pelvic floor, which can lead to stronger, more controlled orgasms. To perform the bridge pose, begin on the floor on your back. Gently, with bent knees, lift your butt until your thighs are parallel to the floor, forming a bridge. Hold this pose for between 30 seconds and a minute.

5.Lotus Pose (Padmasana)

Padmasana

Lotus Pose – Padmasana

The lotus pose promotes flexibility of the hip and thigh muscles, which are central to most sexual positions. For the lotus pose, sit cross-legged on the floor and, with your hands, pull each of your feet up to rest on the top of the opposite thigh. You should feel a deep stretching of the thigh muscles for the duration of the pose.

6.Plow Pose (Halasana)

Halasana

Plow Pose – Halasana

The plow pose increases blood flow to the brain to enhance alertness and stimulation. It also stretches the back to reduce the risk of injury during sex. Begin by lying face-up on the floor and gently bring your straightened legs up in the air over your body, bringing your toes to rest on the floor behind your head. You can either rest your arms against your back or push them gently into the floor by your side.

7.Eagle Pose (Garudasana)

Garudasana

Eagle Pose – Garudasana

The eagle pose is a visually alluring position that enhances circulation in the cervical area, which may make it more pleasurably sensitive during intercourse. Standing on one leg, twine the other leg around the one that is rooted on the floor. Squeezing your legs gently together will cause a rush of blood to the area when you release the pose.

Every woman wants to feel like a goddess, and the goddess pose can help with that. As an added bonus, this pose works wonders to alleviate the pain of menstruation. From a seated position, bring your feet inwards towards you so that your legs are bent. Gently roll your back down towards the floor until you are fully lying down, keeping legs in the same bent position.

9.Downward Dog Pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Adho Mukha Svanasana

Downward Dog Pose – Adho Mukha Svanasana

Downward dog is one of the most basic of all yoga poses, and is essential to learn if you plan to do yoga regularly. Begin on the floor on your hands and knees and push the hips back while straightening your legs. You should end up with your butt in the air, with your body in a bridge-like formation.

10.Lizard Pose (Utthan Pristhasana)

Like the lotus pose, the lizard pose promotes flexibility in the hips and pelvis. From a downward dog pose, bring your right foot up to join the outside of the right wrist. Bend the right knee, keeping your thigh parallel to the floor. If possible, lower yourself gently onto your elbows.
