If you’re looking for ways to enhance your sex life with your partner, then why not try yoga!
Yes, yoga improves flexibility, strengthens and tones muscles, and also can help you lose weight. Another added bonus with yoga is that teaches self-acceptance, which in turn can loosen your inhibitions about your image and body. Yoga also focuses on breathing, which can also be useful when being intimate with that special someone. Breathing helps you connect with the experience and has been shown to improve orgasms. Yoga also provides poses that can strengthen those special areas of the body that make the experience of sex more pleasurable.
The following article reveals poses that will help enhance those intimate moments with your significant other.
See the poses below and be sure to pass these along to anyone looking to spice up their love life!
