It is well known that practicing yoga is an excellent way to establish a perfect balance between your mental and physical health, which can lead to a whole new feeling of well-being.
Moreover, increased muscle tone, total body flexibility and decreased level of stress are only small part of the benefits that yoga can offer.
Improve your Sex Life
Besides these physical and emotional benefits, yoga can also improve your sexual relationship and take you on another level.
Below we offer you several ways how yoga practice can heat up you sex life:
1. Brings back your confidence
Being fit and in shape affects your dating and sexual life. Recent study has shown that people who do yoga regularly gain less weigh as they age than people who don’t practice yoga at all.
Not only does yoga, tone up your muscles and give you fresh energy, but it can also make the act of sex more enjoyable when you love how you look.
2. Intimacy on point
The effects of yoga go beyond the physical. Practicing yoga on a daily basis encourages us to open our soul in vulnerable and intimate moments-such as a sincere conversation with our partner in bed at night.
3. Awakes your sensual side
Through yoga you are encouraged to get out of your head and stay connected with your body and sensations. In other words it helps you to develop an awareness of sensations in your body and focus on being more sensual.
For example, feeling the weight on the edges of your palms in Downward dog teaches you to enjoy in every sensation in your body including those that appear during the act of love making.Sensuality comes from a better understanding of our own bodies, emotions and thoughts.
This will proceed into the bedroom and make us more sensitive towards our partners.
4. Gets your energy up
A 2009 researchby the National Sleep Foundation has proved that large percent of women avoid to have sex with their partners due to lack of energy. Really? But, what a lot of people don’t know is that yoga can be extremely energizing and refreshing.
After having a yoga class you will be ready to take on the day (or night) and spend some quality sexy time with your significant one.
Moreover, for those who cannot fall asleep, a recent study showed that just eight weeks of yoga practice can improve your sleep, which means you’ll wake up fresh and ready for your sweetheart.
5. Better orgasm
Many of the yoga poses for example Upavistha Konasana or Wide-Legged Straddle Poseincrease blood flow to the pelvis.
This is very important for exercising muscles that can remain constricted in our modern sedentary world and can improve orgasms.
Moreover, yoga practice includes occuping and drawing up the muscles of the pelvic floor, which strengthens the muscles that are crucial for having an orgasm.
The following yoga poses can certainly boost your enjoyment:
Upavistha Konasana (Wide-Legged Straddle Pose)

Then, lean your torso forward and hold for 5 to 10 breaths.

Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose or Cobbler’s Pose)
