Sexual benefits & health benefIts combined into one
‘Yoga’ means to connect or unite, with a focus on a connection between breath and movement when doing a pose. When you double up a yoga pose as a sex position and focus on your breath and movement, the results can be mind-blowing. Especially if you remember to engage your core muscles at the same time, it can result in a level of intensity you only dreamed of, and the potential to control sensation for both you and your partner in a way you didn’t realise was possible.
The poses are fun, and the very act of actually thinking about and choosing a position, rather than the ‘usual favourites’ is already spicing things up for you and your partner. The best part is, you don’t have to be a flexible pro to try any of these poses – they are simple and accessible to most.
1. The Lotus Flower
A sensual and intimate pose to get your sexual energy moving. Get your partner to outstretch his legs, facing him, sit on top and wrap your legs around him, then get him to pull you close by bringing his legs in, like in a lotus position. An added bonus to this pose is the skin to skin contact with the breasts bouncing up and down, and the proximity for kissing.
2. Dead Bug
Not the most glamorous title but great for sexual pleasure. A fun twist on the basic missionary position. Lie on your back with your bottom on the floor. Hold the outside edges of your feet with your hands, bend your knees, lift your legs into the air, draw your knees down towards your chest and the floor , creating a butterfly position, and take a few deep purposeful breaths here –focus your attention and breath to the groin area. This is perfect for opening the hips, along with everything else, and the stretch will intensify the pleasure for both partners. This is made even more intense if coupled with our wide variety of lube.
3. Child Pose
This pose is extremely easy and very relaxing, allowing you to focus completely on the job in hand. Start by kneeling down and drop your bottom towards your heels, at the same time stretching your body down and forwards. Rest your arms in a relaxed position on the floor, with your tummy on your thighs and your forehead resting on the floor or bed. This allows your partner to pull your hips towards him as he enters you from behind.
4. Downward Facing Dog
Kneel down and place your hands on the floor shoulder-width apart with equal spacing between your fingers. Keep your feet hips width apart while sticking your bum in the air to effectively create a V shape with your whole body. Try not to lock your knees or let your head hang down – keep it between your arms. This is a great one for giving your partner a good view of your rear and easy access to your clitoris. For you, with your hands tied up for balance you must totally submit giving an added sensation.
5. Wheel Pose
This move is for the more adventurous and stronger participant, and can be adapted to suit your strength and comfort. Lie on your back on the floor, bend your knees keeping your feet flat on the floor and bringing then as close to your bottom as possible. Lift your arms and bring your palms backwards to press down either side of your ears. Push upwards with your palms and feet and lift your bottom into the air. This pose can sometimes awaken your sexual organs before you have even got going.
Yoga teaches awareness, focus, and the ability to stay in the present without your thoughts and mind wandering. When your bring this level of discipline into your sex life, you open the door to greater intimacy and focus on pleasure.
