So why don’t we try some easy yoga moves that lend themselves perfectly to bedroom sex positions? We love multi-tasking—and being creative.
From dead bug to child’s pose, these moves are fun, exciting and yoga-instructor approved. And you don’t have to be a total yogi to try these out either.
Take the Chakra Kiss, for example: Have your partner positioned in an easy-seated pose. Place yourself on top with your legs wrapped around your partner’s torso and wrap your arms wrapped around your partner’s shoulders. When you start to breath together this builds up an enormous amount of intimacy and sexual energy.

This pose doesn’t sound sexy by name, but it is by practice! Lie on your back with your tailbone on the floor. Hold the outside edges of your feet with your hands and draw your knees down towards the floor. Gets everything nice and open!
Theresa Polley, host and instructor at Retreat in the Pines yoga retreat says this makes it perfect for hip opening—and other areas, as well. In fact, this pose is often also called Happy Husband!

2. Child Pose (Balasana)
This is fairly easy and can be done in bed or on the floor, you pick! “While kneeling touch your big toes and sit on your heels while separating your knees so that they are hip width apart. Exhale and lay your upper body between your thighs. Lay your hands facing up along side your torso with shoulders relaxed,” says Murdock.
Start standing on your knees with your knees hips distance apart. Bring your feet together and send your hips all the way back to your heels. Extend your arms in front of you while you send your hips back.
“Your partner can then enter you from behind and pull your hips back while you stretch your arms forward. This creates a long beautiful back for your partner to admire,” says celebrity yoga trainer, Jessica James, creator of the We Heart Yoga prenatal DVD.

“Hands should be shoulder-width apart with equal spacing between your fingers. Keeping your feet hips width apart while channeling most of your energy into your hands by pushing the floor away from you while engaging your shoulders and upper body. Avoid arching and rounding of your back to obtain perfect positioning. This can easily be achieved by most and can always be modified until you can get your heels to reach the floor,” says fitness expert and founder of Nadia Murdock Fit, Nadia Murdock.
