As explained in my book “ZAK MILO speak Of Love,” healthy sex leads to a healthy life – both physically and emotionally including psychologically.
A happy sexual life with your partner not only gets you in shape with better skin texture and silken tresses, but also keeps you fit, relieves headaches, reduces depression, stabilizes blood pressure, and at the same time leads to the burning of a few calories and exercising of some of the muscles.
“A satisfying sexual relationship strengthens the bond between couples, making them feel secure and loved.”
But according to a Science Alert article ( https://www.sciencealert.com/here-s-why-some-people-are-avoiding-sex) millions of people spend some portion of their adult life not having any sex, which can lead to psychological distress, anxiety, depression, shame and low self-esteem.
In a work by Alfred Kinsey “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female” he states that up to 19 percent of adults do not engage in sex at all. William I. Morse also in his research claims that up to 40 percent of women avoid sex at some time in their lives, and that this lack of sex drive is more common with women than men.
How Yoga can improve your sex life and increase libido?
A study published in the The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that women who engaged in a 12-week yoga program reported improved sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and overall sexual satisfaction.
The study trial of 40 females (age range 22–55 years, average age 34.7 ± 8.49 years) who were recruited and enrolled in a yoga camp, were given a standardized questionnaire named Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) before and after the 12 weeks session of yoga. The findings clearly showed a connection between Yoga exercises and a better sex life.
It is well known fact that a regular yoga practice can increase flexibility, self-esteem, self-awareness, and energy levels and it is not surprising that yoga, based on those facts, can lead to increased sexual stamina and libido. The effects on the body from the selected Yoga positions are:
- increased circulation to the pelvic region
- activation and engagement of the body’s core
- sharpening of our focus
- increasing oxygen levels in the body
- releases of built-up stress
- increases of flexibility and playfulness that can lead to the new positions
- increase of body confidence by becoming leaner and more toned
These exercises will not only lead to a heightened sexual reconnection between yourself and your partner.
As explained in my book “Yoga for Over 40s” as well as “Yoga for Over 50s” and “Yoga for Over 60s” , yoga helps us to connect our breathing with our body movements.
Do you want to boost your sex life?
I recommend you practice the five yoga positions below at least three times per week, with five breaths for each position.
Five easy positions to increase sex stamina and libido – technical details and benefits:
- Cat Pose (Marjaryasana) and Cow Pose (Bitilasana)
- Child’s Pose (Balasana)
- Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)
- Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana)
- Corpse Pose (Savasana)
In today’s madcap world our biggest challenge is trying to maintain a balanced lifestyle. Too often increased stresses and anxieties effect sexual activity. Do not let this happen to you. Sex is an important factor in achieving a happy life and fulfilling relationships.
Yoga is fun. It’s not only for gyms, take it into your bedroom too.
Please note: Yoga complements traditional therapies and is not meant to be a sole treatment. It should not be used as a substitute for medical advice from your doctor.
