Sex is one of the ultimate mind-body experience in between two people. Yoga not only improves your flexibility and over all health but also benefits your sex life. Due to sedentary lifestyle, our stamina and flexibility is hindered. This limits us to lead a healthy sex-life. Yoga increases blood circulation to the pelvic region by activating and engaging the body’s core region, improves our focus, and increases oxygen levels in the body. Certain postures in yoga will not only boost your stamina, flexibility and confidence but also will help you enjoy your sex life like never before!
