Did you know a regular yoga practice can contribute to a more pleasurable sex life?
A growing body of research has shown yoga to have immediate psychological effects including decreasing anxiety and depression, and increasing feelings of emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. Simultaneously, yoga has also been shown to aid in physical health concerns such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, muscular tension, and anxiety. All of which affect or sexuality and/or adrenal systems that help with hormone production.
Regular yoga practice cultivates mindfulness and greater body awareness so you don’t miss a single juicy moment with yourself or your lover. Typically in sex we are simply going at it in search for orgasmic event lying ahead. We mechanically or habitually rub our genitals against each other faster and faster. Maybe we are enjoying it? Maybe we aren’t until we reach orgasm (maybe), after which we roll over on our side and fall asleep, or if we are lucky, we get to cuddle. Body awareness is crucial to lifting our sexual experience to new heights. When we drop our awareness into our bodies we become cognizant to a multitude of processes occurring all in the same moment. We become attentive to our heart beating in our chest, our breath rising and falling from the belly, our body temperature radiating from our skin, subtle vibrations and tingling sensations, tension, and rhythm in our movement. All of a sudden sex becomes more than just a tab A into slot B, boom orgasm; it becomes a fascinating world to explore and experience.
Now take that information and apply it to partner yoga, and you will learn how to not only connect within yourself, but learn to feel into your lover, as well. Partner yoga is a great way to strengthen your skills for intimacy by literally experiencing how you show up in a relationship through physical touch, trust, control, and communication. You can join Dr. Cat every last Sunday of the month for Sexy Sunday Partner Yoga Flow! Our next opportunity to experience partner yoga is THIS Sunday, March 26th 7:30-8:45PM. Book your tickets here.
Every day we are bombarded with images surrounding sex, whether is from the media, movies, conversations with colleagues around the water cooler, locker room, or our best girlfriends. The problem is that most of these sources a) only tell you the most cosmic, out of this world sexual experiences, b) do not tell you their struggles or insecurities around sex, and c) are not professionals on the topic.
Luckily, you have us.
