Not to worry, because today my friend I am going to show you, how yoga could be exactly what you were looking for.

A simple hack to boost your confidence, feel your body again and reconnect with your sexuality and your partner too.

But Wait!


Well, let’s first define what a great sex is.

You couldn’t have agreed more if the great sexual experience is defined as an 'experience when you are in full control of your movements and breathing and feel completely connected with your mind, body and your partner.'

Isn't so!

And how do you define a great sexual yoga experience; an experience when you are in full control of your movements and breathing and feel completely connected with your mind, body and your partner surroundings.

Hope you got the idea where I am heading.

How yoga can actually help your life

As you may know at this point, yoga is based on positions, breathing, concentration, and meditation, and the best part is, in order to practice, you do not need to be a Jean Claude Van Dam. The positions (called asanas) favor a lengthening of all muscles and free the body from the tensions that make you live in a state of permanent stress.

Experts approve yoga as a pleasure booster

Men who practice yoga feel a more intense pleasure than just ejaculation. They control their breathing better and thanks, to the perineum tonic, they manage to retain and prolong erection and ejaculation. Moreover, having a greater awareness of their body and soul, they are more present, they seek intimacy and they look you in the eyes during the relationship, so yes to happy sex!

Various scientific researches, like the one in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, have seen how yoga can increase libido, desire, sexual pleasure and sexual performance. This thanks to the particular positions and breathing: yoga acts on our parasympathetic nervous system, allowing us to accustom our psyche to a state of extended well-being.

Our Best pick poses (asanas) stretches the chest, tones and works on your pelvic muscles and above all, it improves the circulation of the genital organs, so it helps you regain lost desire, excitement and the pleasure of making love with your partner.

Yoga can change your body’s perspective

Many yogis thanks to the exercise of observing their bodies on the mat and even outside of practice, "observe that as their yoga practice progresses, their sexual experience becomes more fulfilling, more enjoyable and a spirit of experimentation ". So explains Meta Chaya Hirschl, yoga expert and author of the book Vital Yoga.

In fact, yoga positions act beneficially both on our body and on our mind and spirit. Yoga makes us feel good about our body, also improving the relationship with the body of the other: this aspect is fundamental in sexuality. Besides, many positions are designed to strengthen the buttocks, improve the pelvic area and tone the muscles of the reproductive system. Acting positively on the pelvic floor, the result will be a greater flow of blood in the genitals and the consequent release of tensions.

Working hard on our Mula Banha for great sex

Mula Bandha, for example, is the energetic closure used to fix prana in the organs of the pelvis. It concerns the lifting of the perineum and gives physical support to the organs of the pelvis (in particular those involved in the process of elimination and reproduction): the Mula Bandha is practiced by lifting the pelvic floor, between the anus and the genitals, upwards and towards the inside of the body. "Mula bandha creates a sense of inner rooting and strength, both mentally (and physically)", explains Meta Chaya Hirschl.

Let's review what are the benefits of yoga that positively affect sex:

  • Yo​ga relieves muscular and mental tension
  • It increases energy and attention
  • It reinforces specific muscles and helps control the most "hidden" and deeper ones
  • It balances the Chakras, including the Sacral Chakra that deals with sexuality
  • It increases self-esteem. An important aspect of sexuality is the acceptance of one's body. Yoga teaches us to know each other, to know our body. And to love it. Only by loving ourselves can we love the body of our neighbor
