5 Ways Yoga Improves Your Sex Life

Women who were unhappy with their sex lives reported improvements in their levels of arousal and desire, as well as better orgasms, after practicing Eastern techniques of mindfulness and yoga, according to a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2009.

Here are five reasons yoga is good for your sex life:

1. Developing Mindfulness

A big part of yoga is a focus of quieting your busy brain, which can be a big boom to your Big O’s. Mindfulness is about being present. You’re brain is constantly racing thinking about the things you need to do and should have done. This can easily carry over to the bedroom during sex, making you think about the past and future instead of here and now. When you’re mindful, you’re not being judgmental; you’re simply accepting what is and enjoying the moment.

2. It’s better than kegels

Kegel exercises (simple contractions of the pelvic floor muscles) are great for sex because they strengthen the muscles you use to climax. When you’re doing yoga, during the poses that also work on your pelvic floor muscles, you’re holding those contractions for an extended period of time.

3. Less stress means better sex

Yoga is a stress buster. Stress literally lowers your libido and can also contribute to depression and negative thinking. To put it in basic terms, you’re more likely to view sex as something fun when you’re not super stressed.

4. Strength + Flexibility = Y.E.S!

Yoga is great for toning, flexibility, and endurance. Yoga is a killer workout, and is often about maintaining contractions for a long time. The resulting development of your muscular endurance can be very helpful during sex (especially for those longer, more acrobatic sessions).

5. Body confidence

It makes sense that when you’re in better shape, you feel more confident, which can help you feel more secure in the bedroom. There are biochemical changes that occur in our brains when we exercise that help boost our confidence even before our bodies start changing. More confidence and a killer bod? Yes, please!
