There are a whole bunch of reasons to do yoga. Aside from the long list of physical, health and spiritual benefits or the community of those who practice regularly, there is a somewhat less mentioned benefit: amazing sex!
Allow me, as a yoga teacher to share the benefits of how a strong yoga practice directly impacts my sex life. Firstly, I'd like to point out I will be using a baseline to establish what I mean by strong yoga practice. Such a baseline is, at minimum, having completed a Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour program (YTT200). Any higher credentials simply increase the following benefits. Obviously there are those who have an equal or stronger practice without being a certified instructor but for the sake of ease of understanding, we'll use the YTT200/RYT200 standard.
Here are nine sex perks are enjoyed as a result of a diligent practice and training (in no particular order):
1. Concentration abilities: though there are many types of yoga schools, each requires the instructor have an understanding of the class and be able to concentrate while leading students through the session. This concentration can be described as cessation of the mind/mental voice and being present within the body. In sex, this proves very valuable, allowing them to not only be present, it also means a strong focus on the task at hand and that task is their role in mutual pleasure and appreciation.
2. Throughout building their practice, yoga instructors become incredibly aware of their body. This awareness means more control (aka proper release) over negative emotions and the ability to strongly emit positive ones. This kind of emotional emission will deepen the sexual experience and bond between the instructor and whomever their partner(s) is/are.
3. Flexibility, which allows for a range of positions otherwise not achievable. Many of you have likely seen someone doing a yoga pose requiring a moderate or extreme amount of flexibility, particularly of the hamstrings and back. Imagine this kind of flexibility being applied to numerous sexual positions. Not only having the ability to do them, but to do them comfortably for maximizing pleasure.
4. Mental and physical stamina, from intense slow paced yoga classes, allow a yoga teacher to engage with their partner(s) longer before tiring. With many classes running 60 or 90 minutes, and doing them regularly, you can rest assured that if you're with an instructor, they can keep going and going and going and... ;)
5. Teachers are also comfortable with sweat so it's not a nuisance when things get heated. It adds to the experience knowing a good sweat is healthy for the body. The instructors' positive association of a cleansing sweat during class will be present in your intimacy. Plus, things can always be extended to the shower to clean that sweat off.
6. As part of the 200 hour yoga courses, there are hundreds of different body poses to be learned. Knowledge of these, and how they affect the anatomy, means there's a lot more available to try than missionary and doggy. Even if you know another 15 positions. How about doing the splits? Wheel? Or scorpion? Look up the poses and use your imagination. This hasn't even touched on acro-yoga or tantric yoga.
7. Further understanding of proper bodily alignment for yoga poses deepens the experience even further. Proper alignment presents the body in a very seductive way. It shows off the muscles and allows them to be used longer since proper alignment means proper breathing and increased performance capabilities.
8. Body strength - some yoga classes can require a lot of muscle endurance. With regular, if not daily practice, yoga teachers are accustomed to sustained muscle use leading to toned bodies meaning often lighter weight individuals. Think of a person standing in mountain (standing normally), their shoulders back, elbows straight below shoulders with forearms pointing up at ~45°. They're holding a partner with both hands on their lower back while the lifted partner does wheel pose (lifted partners' shines locked under standing partners' armpits) so oral can be given. Like standing up 69, but the lighter partner is parallel to the floor and the stronger partner stands up vertically.
9. Though I've talked earlier about muscle strength, there is one particular muscle that those who practice yoga will be aware of that 99.99% of gym rats won't be: the perineal muscle. The muscles you use when preventing yourself from going to the washroom. Yoga practice and various breathing techniques require the development of this muscle because it is the key to unlocking the energy contained within the first chakra. The more chakras you unlock, the better energy circulation you have and can be shared.
Now I'm not advocating to get into yoga simply to increase your sex life, however, it is definitely a great benefit that comes with building a strong body, a clean mind and getting in touch with your inner self.
