10 Yoga Poses Double As Sex Positions

Yoga has been linked to positive sexual function for both women and men. From increased flexibility to more mindfulness to familiarity with—and confidence in—your body, the benefits of the bendy practice can really pay off in the bedroom.

Take a look at the pictures below to see 10 yoga poses that will put you in the mood.

If you’ve seen trill yoga, you know certain poses can look pretty sexy. However, yoga and sex actually have a lot more in common than you may realize.

They’re both mind-body experiences that get your heart racing, relieve stress and leave you feeling amazing.

1. Plow Pose

yoga asanas

How : Lie on back with knees bent and pulled in near chest. Straighten legs so they're perpendicular to the bed. Brace lower back with hands and bend at the hips to lower legs overhead, feet together. Partner can kneel behind or stand if you're near the edge of the bed.

Why:"It allows for deep penetration," Herbenick says. So it might not be your best choice if you find cervical contact uncomfortable or have an unusually well-endowed partner.

 

2. Standing Straddle Forward Bend

yoga exercises

How: Start on all fours with hands a few inches in front of shoulders and knees under hips. Press palms into bed, curl under toes, and press hips toward ceiling (body should form an upside-down "V") as partner stands behind.

Why: Similar to the forward bend, downward dog allows for stimulation of the sensitive front vaginal wall. The variation on the popular the doggy-style also engages your core.

 

3. Downward Dog

hatha yoga

How: Start on all fours with hands a few inches in front of shoulders and knees under hips. Press palms into bed, curl under toes, and press hips toward ceiling (body should form an upside-down "V") as partner stands behind.

Why: Similar to the forward bend, downward dog allows for stimulation of the sensitive front vaginal wall. The variation on the popular the doggy-style also engages your core.

4. Three-Legged Dog Pose

yoga for weight loss

How: From downward dog position, lift one leg straight toward the ceiling.

Why: Just like downward dog, but with more space to move and groove! Open your hips to the side that has the leg in the air for an extra hip opener—and for an easier angle for him.

 

5. Bridge Pose

yoga positions

How: Lie on back with knees bent and feet hip-width apart (or a bit wider to make room for partner to kneel between legs). Keeping head resting on floor, raise hips to form a straight line from knees to shoulders.

Why: "Some women experience enhanced arousal while doing bridge—even just as part of their regular yoga practice," Herbenick says. Consider this a bonus if you need a little help finishing "O"ff.

 

6. Balasana

restorative yoga

How: Sit on heels. Lean upper body forward, lowering chest toward knees, to place forehead on bed. Extend arms straight in front as partner kneels or stands behind.

Why: Balasana, or child's pose, opens up the almost-always tight lower back to cut your stress. If flexible ladies like dance pro Misty Copeland dig it, we can too.

 

7. Reclining Bound Angle Pose

bikram yoga

How: Lie on back with your legs bent and feet touching each other, creating a diamond shape with your legs.

Why: This position will help you feel more relaxed and closer to your partner.

 

8. Savasana

yoga steps

How: Lie on back with legs extended straight and palms facing up. Partner can straddle your hips or lie on top.

Why: Sometimes, simple is best. And more often, after a long day, you only have enough energy for the basics

 

9. Ananda Balasana

basic yoga poses

How: Lie on back, lift legs toward ceiling and bend knees out toward sides to grasp each foot's midsole with the same hand. Partner can kneel or lunge (so he can get a workout in, too!) near your hips.

 

Why: "Similar to missionary position, this pose gives you the freedom to wrap your legs around your partner instead of keeping them stretched out to the side," Herbenick says.

10. Cobra

hot yoga

How: Lie facedown on bed. Place palms on bed just outside of shoulders with elbows near torso. Press hands into bed, straighten arms, and raise upper body away from bed while keeping lower body on bed. Keep legs about a foot apart to allow room for your partner to lie on top.

Why: Cobra opens up your lower back while giving your partner unique access to your G spot. Win-win.
