Here’s a fun fact to get this started - ‘yoga’ literally means ‘union’ in Sanskrit. The union of body and spirit. The union of heart and mind. The union of body and...body? Hey! We’re just putting it out there. It is widely known that yoga can give you greater flexibility, boost body confidence, improve your blood flow, tone muscles, increase your 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.Which is why we bring you yoga positions that also double up as sex positions! Because what better way to get fit than doing it while you do it?
1. The Cat/Cow Pose
Here’s a great way to bring some variety to the room if you’re sort of done with doggy style. To get into the Marjaiasana pose, get on all fours with shoulders directly above wrists and hips over your knees. Leaving a lot of room open for your partner to take you from behind. When you moan and stretch your head up, you’re the cat and when you bow down with desire, you’re the cow!
2. The Reclined Butterfly Pose
All you have to add to the regular butterfly pose is a recline and you would have nailed Supta Baddha Konasana aka the reclining butterfly! With your legs bent and stretched apart, you’ll be working your inner thigh, opening your hips for a wider range of motion. As your partner gets on top of you, you’ll see that this position allows more proximity and relaxation.
3. The (Glute) Bridge
If you can hold the Setu Bandha or Glute Bridge position for a few minutes, you’re in for a treat! Get your partner to support your waist so you can last longer. The best part about this pose is that it helps tone your vaginal muscles and attain better orgasms. Your partner can both straddle your hips and reach out for your boobs in this position. Now, that’s something we can get used to!
4. Happy Baby
Here is a tried and tested favourite, ladies! Also known as Ananda Balasana, this position allows you to wrap your legs around your partner giving them close proximity and more space to move around. Ask your partner to try circular motions while you’re at it and you will definitely feel the love!
5. The Cobra
The Bhujangasana is satisfying for two simple reasons - one, your partner gets full access to kissing your back and two, it opens up your lower back making your G-spot more accessible! Also, it’s super easy...as long as you can support your weight with your arms. And may be that can be the trick of the treat!
6. Three-Legged Dog
If you’re up for something kinky, this position is your answer! First get the Sanskrit name right - Tri Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana and then get into the downward dog position and lift one leg up. Your partner will be standing behind, ready to take you. Holding you by the hips, your partner will have more space to move and take charge of the situation!
