A study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2009 revealed that women who initially did not feel happy with their sex lives, was slowly undergoing significant change in their sex lives. These changes include increased arousal, desire for sex, as well as better orgasms. Improvements in sex life because it turns out these women practicing yoga. Psychologist, physical therapist, and author of A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness, Dr. Elizabeth R. Lombardo, believes that yoga is very good for improving your sex life. The reason is as follows:

1. Train the focus of attention.

Much of the focus of yoga is to calm the mind and brain. Every day, you usually think about things to do. Quite often it makes you tired and stressed. Thoughts such as these can easily affect your mind while in the room, thus reducing the desire for sex. “Maybe then you are physically in the room, but somehow your mind drift thinking about what, so it does not focus with your partner. This may reduce sexual pleasure,” said Lombardo. Yoga can help you to organize and manage your thoughts and your stress better. Yoga also calms the mind so that you can think clearly and focus on what is being done, such as sex.

2. Better than Kegel.

Kegel exercises that put a simple contraction of the pelvic floor muscles is good to increase sexual desire, as these exercises can strengthen the muscles that work when having sex. However, yoga is considered better than Kegel exercises. Because yoga is not only strengthen the pelvic muscles, but also help reach the muscle contractions during sex, so sex session for the better and longer.

3. Reduce stress.

“Yoga is a way to ‘kill’ the stress,” says Lombardo. When you’re stressed, you tend to lose passion for sex and felt I had no time for sex. Stress can literally reduce your libido, and can make you depressed. With yoga, you can relax your mind and reduce stress in the brain attack. This means that the stress-free mind then your sex drive will increase. You would think to look at sex as something fun when you do not superstres.

4. Increase strength and flexibility.

Yoga is good for muscle tone, flexibility, and endurance during sex. Developments resulting from endurance and muscle strength gained from yoga can help during sex, especially for those who like sex are attractive.

5. Confidence.

Yoga can increase your confidence, because when you are in excellent body condition and the ideal body shape, then you will feel more confident. This confidence also helps you feel more comfortable in the bedroom with your partner. “There are biochemical changes that occur in the brain when we practice yoga. This can help increase our confidence even though our body shape has not changed,” said Lombardo.
