Rev up your sexual performance and go the distance in bed with a prepared body and mind. Yoga can improve the flexibility of the muscle groups that are activated during sex. It can ease stress and anxiety that could be wearing you down mentally. Plus, some poses can inspire your imagination and target the pelvic zone muscles, directly impacting your sexual experience and vitality.
The ancient Indian technique of relaxation and healing has become a global trend. The experience of millions of people has shown it has to be a successful method in easing anxiety, lower blood pressure and relieve pain. It may come as no surprise that yoga may also serve to improve sexual function. According to a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, regular yoga practice improves several aspects of sexual function including arousal and orgasm.
If you feel your form is not to the level you expect of yourself, then try yoga classes. Video instruction is widely available, but a course with a certified instructor is preferable. There are many different styles of yoga. While many are safe, some cannot be appropriate for everyone.
Vigorous Form of Erotic Fitness
If you have some sort of physical handicap, consult a doctor before trying yoga. For the older generation with limited mobility, a good choice can be styles that use blankets, benches, and belts to assist in performing asanas (body posture). A good idea is to start with Iyengar yoga. It is useful for teaching beginner’s correct alignment. Anusara yoga is a more vigorous form of Iyengar, that can help people with limitations or lack of experience.
Here are three exercises that will get you started on the course of erotic fitness:
1.To Relax Pelvic Floor Muscles and Give You Energy
The Supta Baddha Konasana (Reclining Bound Angle Pose) relax your pelvic floor muscles. It improves flexibility in your groin and hips. Relieves tension in your lower back, opens up the chest, and improves breathing. The blood flow to the pelvic area improves energy. That eases fatigue and boosts your stamina. Here’s how it is done:
- Lie on your back, bending your knees, and keep your feet together.
- Relaxing the pelvic floor and breathe in. Feel the abdominal muscle relax. Drop and open your knees at the sides of your body.
- Breathe out and bring your knees to the start position. Pull the abdominal muscle in and lift your pelvic floor. At the end of your exhaling accentuate that muscle contraction.
2. So You Don’t Tire Quickly
Urdhva Mukha Svansana (Upward-Facing Dog) is an energizing asana that will improve blood flow to your pelvic region and strengthen your spine. It can also help with a backache that is tiring you out quickly in bed. Here’s how it is done:
- Lie face down, so your legs are fully extended and the tops of your feet touch the floor. Place palms in line with and below the shoulders, allowing your elbows to bend.
- Take a breath, press the palms into the ground, extend the arms, and at the same time elevate your torso and thighs off the floor.
- Your hips should soften a bit downward even as you lift through to your sternum.
- Pull your shoulders back. Make sure your neck is in a neutral alignment. Don’t tilt your neck or head.
- Hold, inhaling, and exhaling for about 3 to 5 breath cycles.
3. For Circulation, Strength, And Relaxation
Marjaryasana/Bitilasana (Cat/Cow Pose) when you do the cow pose, you strengthen the spine and give your internal organs a massage. The cat movement relaxes your mind and improves circulation. Both of these movements help you last longer in bed. Here’s how you can do this flow:
- Kneel on all fours line your hips up so they are above your knees and your shoulders are aligned above your wrists.
- Breathe in as you arch your back and raise your chest and sitting bones toward the ceiling for the cow pose.
- Exhale, rounding your back, tucking in your chin and the pelvis to achieve the cat pose.
Most yoga poses can improve your sex life. Reducing your stress will be the biggest benefit, allowing you to relax and enjoy sex. Try to get your partner involved in Yoga. It is more fun if both of you are exercising. Some of the poses are very provocative and can help in arousal.
While yoga poses are generally safe and will not hurt a man’s sexual performance, any pose performed incorrectly could strain muscles. If you are a beginner the best course of action is to practice under the experienced eye of a professional yoga instructor.
