Did you know yoga can boost your libido?

According to research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, women (more so than men) who practiced yoga for 12 weeks reported an increase in their overall sexual desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm and satisfaction. In addition, nearly 75% of the yogis said their sexual life was better following the three-month training. Ready to roll out your mat yet?

The theory is that certain hip-opening poses like a “Wide-Leg Squat”, “Lizard Pose” and “Frog Pose” encourage blood flow below the waist, while loosening and opening up the hips, thighs and pelvis. They also strengthen pelvic-floor muscles (which promote deeper and better orgasms) and inner thighs and hips, making it easier to get into a variety of playful sexual positions.
