Camel pose all night long, girl.

Yoga is incredible for everything, from detoxing your body to increasing flexibility. But what you may not know is that there are yoga poses that can spell major success for your sex life.

The first thing to do, is remember to breathe.

“When you change your breathing by simply breathing in and out through the nose, you turn on the parasympathetic nervous system. This creates an all over feeling of ease and relaxation automatically. You’ve just shifted out of fight or flight and into a more relaxed state. Blood pressure drops as well. Breathe with intent to feel. I can’t imagine a great sex life without the ability to feel,” says Michelle Cordero, expert yoga instructor and life coach.


Once you’re breathing in a way that feels good to you, try one or more of these poses to bring your sex life up a few notches.

1. Camel Pose (Ustrasana)

This pose is performed on the knees, so opt for a carpeted surface or double up a yoga mat.

“Starting on your knees, align your hips with your knees. Pressing your hips forward, lean back reaching for your heels, let your head fall back while concentrating on creating space for the neck. Don’t tighten your glutes. Hold this position for five slow breaths. This pose helps with fatigue to keep your stamina up for all-nighters. It’s also ideal for stretching the groin, thighs and the entire front of the body,” says fitness expert Nadia Murdock.

2. Big Toe Pose (Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana)

If you aren’t the flexible type, you will need a yoga strap to help with tight hamstrings.

“Place the strap around the ball of your foot then extend the foot out, keeping your leg straight without locking your knees. Make sure you’re stable on the standing leg. Keep your elbows soft and shoulders down. Hold for 30 seconds and perform the same action on the opposite side. This hip-opener move will challenge your balance and get you in tip-top shape to tackle those more challenging sex positions on your feet,” says Murdock.

3. Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana)

“Lie on your back, grab onto the outer edge of your feet or shins, pulling your knees down toward ground and feet up toward ceiling. This helps loosen up the hips so you’re more flexible and will avoid cramping in the hip flexors,” says Stephanie Mansour, weight loss coach.

4. Forward Fold (Uttanasana)

“Standing up, feet as wide as the hips, hinge forward at the waist and hang down, reaching your finger towards the ground. You will feel a stretch in the hamstrings. This will help with flexibility with legs up or overhead!” says Mansour.
