6 Yoga Poses to be Better at Sex Than You Could Have Ever Imagined!

6 Yoga Poses to be Better at Sex Than You Could Have Ever Imagined!

Let’s start with a fun fact – “yoga” literally means “union” in Sanskrit! It focuses on bringing the body into harmony with the mind and spirit. There are heaps of studies out there that highlight how stress and poor body image affect your libido, and yoga helps us to reconnect and re-balance from the inside. Great sex is one of the ultimate mind-body experiences. So is great yoga.

It is widely known that yoga can give you greater flexibility, boost body-confidence, improve our blood flow, build better muscle tone, increase our energy levels, and is a surefire way to release stress and calm the mind. And yogis and experts alike believe that it just might put some va-va voom into your sex life since the right kind of yoga is good for sex. (The Journal of Sexual Medicine has reported that women who practise yoga have more desire to have sex and experience better orgasms!) So, without further ado, here are 6 yoga poses for better sex that you MUST try out. ;)

1. The Cat and Cow Positions

yoga poses for better sex 1

Start in a tabletop position on all fours, with shoulders directly above wrists and hips over knees. Then slowly inhale and arch your back upwards (like a cow), lifting your chest and abdomen upwards and reaching with your tailbone towards the sky. Exhale and round back up (like a cat), drawing your belly inwards into the spine and separating shoulder blades, pretty much the exact opposite of what you earlier did. Repeat the entire process mentioned above 5 times. This is a great yoga pose to have better sex.


Why do this Yoga for good sex: You strengthen the Kegel muscles – those wonderful muscles that contract during an orgasm – the same way as you control your tailbone moving from cat to cow.

2. The Wide-Legged Straddle

Sit upright on the floor, spreading legs wide apart, as far as you can. Press the back of your legs into the floor, pointing knees and toes towards the sky. Inhale, and lengthen the torso upwards. This should then be followed by exhaling and leaning forward from the hips, reaching forward to take hold of your big toe on either foot. Hold for 10 breaths, with every inhale lengthening the torso and with every exhale extending the chest farther forward as you lower down.

Why do this Yoga for good sex: The wide-legged straddle is great for low libido and hence, this makes yoga great for sex. It stretches the inner thighs, and opens the hips for a wider range of motion. It improves blood flow to the pelvic area immediately, and where the blood goes so does the energy and vitality. Circulation and increased blood flow are directly linked to level of arousal.

3. The Eagle Pose

Standing up, firmly grind down your left foot as you bend the same knee. Lift the right foot and cross it over the left knee and then bring the front of your right foot around left calf, or wherever you can reach. Pretend to sit down into your buttocks and tuck in the tailbone as you raise your chest towards the sky. Inhale with your arms ahead of you. Cross the left arm over right, fold your forearms at the elbow and wrap around each other to bring palms together. Lift elbows towards the sky and enjoy the stretch. Hold for 5 breaths, release and move to other side.

Why do this Yoga for good sex: When you release the legs, all of the blood comes flooding through the cervix. Holding the pose itself requires a sense of poise and steadiness, which is beneficial if you feel stressed.

4. “Bridge”-ing the Gaps

One of the best yoga poses for better sex, lie on your back, bend your knees and place your feet hip-width apart and at a distance of about 5 inches beneath the buttocks. Inhale and raise your hips towards the sky. Interlace your fingers, bringing your hands together beneath the hips, while drawing shoulder blades together and downwards, keeping both firmly pressed onto the mat. Hold for 10 breaths, taking deep inhales and exhales.

Why do this Yoga for good sex: The bridge pose not only provides an intense hip flexor stretch but also tones the vaginal muscles and improves orgasms. Holding the bridge is similar to doing a Kegel, because you squeeze the same pelvic muscles.

5. Do the Savasana

Lie down comfortably on back. Rest your arms alongside your body, with palms facing upwards. Rest your legs as wide apart as feels comfortable, letting the feet relax, and roll to either side of mat. Rest here for 5 minutes, allowing the body to be completely still.

Why do this Yoga for good sex: How often do you sit or lie completely still? Not often, right? Some people say that savasana is the hardest pose to perfect. Take a moment, and try this pose. Anything that helps you to simply be present in the moment is going to help you feel more sensual. Try it to believe it!

6. Practise Your Contractions

The most common yoga pose for better sex and used to enhance sexual pleasure is one that can be done anywhere, even at your desk at work! It involves contracting and releasing the muscles of your pubic area, just like you do when you really need to pee but have to control it. You can do this 10 times, holding to a count of 5 each time.

Why do this Yoga for good sex: This will help to strengthen the Kegel muscles, ultimately resulting in some rather pleasurable moments being made even better!
