Yoga and Sex

Today’s day in age, sex is the foundation of what people enjoy and seem to be interested in. No matter if it’s for someone to conceive, gossiping about who’s having sex with who or how much sex is too much and not normal or normal to societal standards. Sometimes people contemplate what their dress attire should be, if someone should shave certain areas on their anatomy or should they let the hair continue to grow or how to present it.

Sex is thrown in people’s faces everyday it can be in a subtle way or just thrown right at us. Our friends at PenilePlus state that men and women have desires and needs sexually that need fulfilling in different ways – and this doesn’t just mean sex drives which more times then not leads to issues or problematic conflicts. Yoga doesn’t thrive on conflict as sexual desires and needs does its more united and always has positive opportunities arise.

Believe it or not sex, yes, sex and yoga are very harmonic and help bring With both they are meant to balance everything and make each party feel happy, healthy and overall a sense of appreciation and nourishment. There isn’t meant to be pressures or repercussions. Sex is a very spiritual path to helping someone’s physical and mental health. Yoga also helps one feel overall just healthier, calmer and better. Your blood volume pumps more when you are doing yoga. Hormones flush and rush through your body.

Your youth will fade slowly and you’ll be glowing. Doing yoga gets temperatures rising and stimulates your body from the internal anatomy to the external anatomy leaving you with a huge boost of energy and that’s just something so attractive and sexy.

More then we think sex and yoga are more relatable then our thoughts let us believe. When we have sexual encounters with someone we love our hearts feel so much more open and in tune, leaves endless smiles on our faces and relaxes and lessens stress we may be carrying. Sex isn’t just suppose to be something unimportant. Its suppose to be about reaching a level in your relationship that depends your connection, opens up so much more intimacy, love and so much more expressions from both parties. Yoga and sex correlate with the topics of unity, honesty, and love. It takes a truthful, commitment between your yoga and sex life to make a deeper connection intimately and just improve ones overall well-being. As I’ve learned being a yoga teacher it’s my mission to encourage all of those topics and make sure I apply them correctly in my yoga practice.

My system of yoga is a group of Japanese style poses, wholefood medicine and even working with breathing. All of which can heal and stimulate in many ways both nervous systems. This cause amazing results in our daily functions related to our hormones, circulatory system, digestive and even our lymphatic system. We feel more alive when we’re connected and grounded like that. Our emotions, mentality, spirituality, physically being and sexuality is so much more clear and stable in life. Every part of our spine make up is controlled by one in particular meridian. The base chakra which is also known as our sacrum is grounded into Mother Earth and this shows us how to feel confident, trustworthy within ourself and secure with ourself. Kundalini energy also know as a base chakra is what connects us spiritually with love and our consciousness.

Our sexual hormones are controlled by energy radiating from our kidneys which also correlate with our emotional wellbeing and how easily we get through life, and how we end up telling our truth whether it comes from our souls and deepest depths of our heart and hath no fear connected. Our spines being strong is the one solid part of our Skeletal system that can channel energy from the universe to help us get through parts of our lives and life in general, make sure every part of this growth, development and challenges are used to reach our full potential.

Yoga and sex are always interlaced together

Heart chakra, solar plexus chakra and our base chakra seal our sexual and emotional confidences fate. When you do yoga you are energized in all of these areas basically from your pelvic region to our largest sexual organ which is where we hold our knowledge, our brains. During men’s trail cycles most of the females in my class noticed there senses were heightened with their vitality levels, libido and sexual arousal and their discomforts that come with menstrual cycles were lesser. Which all of this is very positive things to feel.

This order of doing things has helped many women with gynecological issues, have often helped with fertility advances, knock osteoporosis, verified veins have diminished, pelvic floors gain strength after baring a child, hormones level out and reach a balance, and confidence sexually and emotionally heightened. Many of my male students keep theirselves nourished just as well and are able to reach their male and female yin and yang energies and in the most appropriate of ways so they get the full effects of balancing their emotional state of expression, heighten their intuitions and stray from trying to repress any of that.

Most of them comment and say remarks about how they are more adept to empathy and understanding their partners and other males around them better too.

Instead of letting the societal views of stereotypes be used negatively and try to strip them of their masculinity they show grace and don’t lose a bit of their masculinity at all even if they are sensitive. Men can be sensitive too. There’s no societal rule saying different.

Most men heed warnings and issues directly related with their prostate health, virility/fertility issues or not, if they are losing hair or not, if sex drive is increased or decreased, and body confidence is used to help block the effects from them aging and all the pressure work and relationship issues place onto their lap. This energy gives off understanding vibes, compassion, tolerance for things, responsibility, and overall positivity.
