“Yoga can help you develop an awareness of sensations and sensitivity within your body which can enhance your sex life. “ – lexiyoga.com
I love doing yoga. I try and get to a class at least once or twice a week. Not only does it help you stay in shape physically but it’s also great for achieving calmness and clarity of mind – and with all those crazy positions, it should come as no surprise that doing yoga can help give you inspiration for some great (not to mention mind-blowing) sex positions.
My theory was recently reinforced when a series of articles on EmpowHER.com came out on how yoga can help improve one’s sex life – this ancient method of exercise, which originated in India centuries ago, promotes complete freedom of movement, a concept that should always be adopted in the bedroom. The various yoga “poses” that are out there can make for great sex positions between the sheets. Yoga also helps to strengthen pelvic floor muscles as well as sex organs, which translates to better orgasms. It heightens your sensitivity to different stimuli. It can give you more energy too, something your partner will undoubtedly appreciate.
Joining a yoga class doesn’t have to be something that you consider “girly” – in fact, a well-versed yogi (a yoga instructor) usually makes for an incredible lover. Trust me boys – I picked up a yoga teacher in a class about a year ago while on vacation in The Caribbean, and if he didn’t live halfway across the world in Australia, I may just have settled down and married him – I still regularly check for cheap last-minute flights down under (pun intended).
Almost every yoga session begins with the lotus posture, which is basically sitting cross-legged on the floor but with your feet resting on top of your legs instead of under them. Most people who meditate do so while sitting in this position. Well, it can be doubly satisfying when you practice the lotus posture and let your girl lower herself on top of you, either facing you or with her back to you. If she’s facing you, have her wrap her legs around your body. The extremely intimate skin-on-skin sex position will instantly get both of you off.
One of the most basic yoga poses, it’s also one of the best sex positions. Get your partner to stand up in front of you and bend over to either touch the floor or rest on a bed or table edge (she’ll need to lean on something – you want to ensure she’s balanced before engaging in those infamous mind-blowing thrusts). Hold on to her hips for more controlled movement.
The Baby Position
You know that position a woman gets into when she’s about to push a baby out? OK, it’s not the most sexually-stimulating visual, but the deep penetration you’ll be able to achieve when she assumes this position will be a huge turn-on for you both. Ask her to hold her legs apart or give her a helping hand.
In yoga, the garland pose involves standing with your legs slightly apart and squatting until your body is almost touching the floor. Now imagine you’re lying underneath your wife as she lowers herself down on top of you. Not only will she be opening her hips and groin as she completes this exercise – she’ll also be allowing for you to enter her, a slow, seductive movement that’s hard to resist.
