Is there anything more necessary than sensual yoga for maintaining health and balance in our lives? In this very stressful world, this practice can help relieve stress, maintain youthfulness in the body, and give you renewed energy everyday.
The body electric is the nervous system. Overstressed, your nerves are frayed. Strong nerves give you endurance and stamina. Yoga postures, especially balancing poses, breathing exercises and focused meditation, work directly on the nervous system. Deep relaxation techniques directly release pressure on the nervous system.
Yoga literally means to unite, to be whole. Its aim is to unite the mind, body, and spirit. It is an ancient practice that helps to create a sense of union between these three aspects of ourselves.
Although Yoga is a physical act, it is essentially a spiritual practice. Practicing yoga regularly gives you a heightened awareness of the senses and the ability to fully appreciate the richness and beauty of your natural surroundings.
Stress is an energy zapper and practicing yoga rejuvenates you from a cellular level. By taking conscious breaths, you are releasing the tightness and the tension to quiet your mind. You are creating a sanctuary of peace within your body that you can rely on for strength and endurance, no matter what else is going on around you.
Yoga postures tone your muscles, adding body confidence to your mental state. When you add focus to the stretches and concentrate on your breath on moving into your body, you progress toward greater flexibility with every practice.
Thus, using breath work and feeling where your limitations are, there is little chance of injury to the muscles and greater confidence to use your body in a variety of positions, sexual and otherwise.
Yoga stretches muscles lengthwise, causing fat to be eliminated around the cells, thus reducing cellulite and helping to maintain a balanced metabolism to maintain a healthy weight.
Keeping your body at a manageable weight allows you to try a variety of positions, included inverted ones, without fear or hesitation. Just having that extra degree of strength combined with flexibility adds a whole new dimension to your sexual repertoire.
