24) CAMEL POSE
- Kneeling, with your body erect, check your alignment, making sure your knees are directly beneath your hips and curling your toes under (deviate from photo to begin). Stack your hips on top of your knees, your shoulders atop your hips, and your ears atop your shoulders.
- Place the palms of your hands on the small of your back, fingertips facing up. If that is uncomfortable, your fingertips can face the floor.
- As you inhale, inflate your chest and feel your breastbone ride, floating your ribcage up and off your waist.
- Then continue to lift your upper back up and over an imaginary ball behind you until you begin to reach one hand and then the other toward your heels. You should arrive in your deepest arch only in your upper back when both hands rest comfortably on your heels or props.
- Take five full, complete breaths, letting your head drop back; if that strains your neck, tuck your chin and relax your face muscles. Keep your pelvis and thighs moving forward so your legs are lengthening.
- To come back up, bring both hands to your low back, and on one inhale use your core to lift your body until it is erect. Move into child’s pose for five breaths to counteract this backbend.
25) IMPROVED FITNESS LEVEL
Yoga makes one feel more active and fit. It also makes one aware of his potential capacity. Apart from giving vigor and endurance, it helps in improving posture coordination and balance. The muscles are also greatly toned during yoga and respond more positively during intercourse leaving a better experience with sex.
26) HORNDOG POSE
This pose is a play on downward facing dog, a pose youíll meet in any class you attend.
Take a yoga strap (or belt or tie) and create a loop in the bottom and tie it to the doorknob. Stand facing away from the closed door and lay the strap across the middle of your thighs. Tie the other end to the doorknob so that you are able to fold forward at the waist feeling the pressure on your thighs pulling you towards the door as you swim forward, walking your hands along the ground if possible.
Imagine a woman in your life pulling your thighs back. This is a common assist for the muscle-bound in a hands-on yoga class. Hold for 10 breaths.
27) KNOWING AND EXPERIMENTING MORE POSITIONS
Yoga helps in knowing about several sex positions. However many of them can't be performed with a stiff and flabby body. Later toned muscles and flexible body achieved through yoga help you experiment with these positions also.
28) INCREASES YOUR OVERALL BLOOD FLOW
Yoga increases your overall blood flow, and some positions, such as the eagle pose, direct it straight toward your pelvis. When all that blood rushes to your privates, it literally makes you hot. That heat, combined with a Viagra-like stimulation (as the blood swells your button), heightens your sensitivity and increases desire.
29) MACHO LOW LUNGES
Doing yoga doesnít mean that you have to forgo the tough stuff. Donít feel comfortable while youíre at it? Then youíre not doing it right, Matkin says. Take a manly stance and own it. When you do this, pretend that you are holding urine in. That will tighten the muscle between the sit bone and pubic bone, making taunt like a trampoline.
Stand tall with your tailbone pointing down and abs pulled in. Step forward one leg's length with your right leg and lower yourself into Lunge. Your right thigh should be parallel to floor, with your back leg fully extended. Your arms can be straight up or on your hips. Hold for 10 breaths, return to start, and repeat with your left leg forward.
30) DUO DOWNWARD DOG
With your partner standing behind you, start on all fours - - your knees under your hips and your hands flat on the floor (directly underneath your shoulders). Lift your knees off the floor, place your weight on the balls of your feet and draw your butt backward so that your back, arms and head form a straight line. Slowly straighten your legs so that your hips rise up as you press your heels down into the floor - - you should look like an upside-down V. From this position, have your partner grab the sides of your hips from behind to gently pull them back for a deeper stretch - - they may need to place one leg between your legs for balance. Hold for 6 to 10 deep breaths, then switch positions with your partner.
31) DUO BUTTERFLY
Sit on the floor with your knees bent and your partner kneeling directly behind you. Press the bottoms of your feet together in front of you and cup your hands over your toes. Have your partner place their hands on the inside of your thighs, just above your knees. Keeping your back flat, slowly lean forward as far as you can as your partner gently pushes your legs down towards the floor. Hold this pose for 6 to 10 deep breaths, then switch positions with your partner.
32) STANDING FAN
Men need to release their lower-back muscles, and they donít realize their hips are insanely tight from sports, sitting at work, and commuting. The other big secret is that your hips start 3 inches above your navel, but we think they are located below our belt. This stretch will help you articulate your pelvic muscles and release joint tension so that you can find a ìsacral rhythmî that would make Marc Anthony jealous.
Stand with your legs 4 feet apart, toes slightly inward, and contract your leg muscles, keeping your legs straight. Don't lock your knees. Bend forward from your hips, keeping your back straight. Place your hands on the back of chair, on your calves, or on the floor. Relax your neck and allow it to dangle loosely without tension. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds, imagining the space between each vertebra of your spine expanding. As you become more flexible, your forearms will rest on floor.
33) DUNKING FOR APPLES
Sit on the floor directly across from your partner. Spread your legs spread as wide apart as possible - - let your partner do the same - - then touch feet with your partner. Reach forward and grab each others' wrists - - or elbows, depending on how long your arms are - - so that your arms are straight and locked together. From this position, slowly lean back so that your partner bends forward at the waist as far as is comfortable and hold for 2 to 3 deep breaths - - make sure they keep their back straight throughout the pose. Next, let your partner lean back - - this time, you'll bend at the waist towards them - - and hold for 2 to 3 deep breaths. Keep repeating back and forth 6 to10 times.
34) SEX BREATH
If you are always in flight-or fight-mode you cannot be in tune your body or hers. There is no bigger letdown than leaving the sizzling moment and feeling like you will lose your erection. To mediate this fear, start to breathe more deliberately and in sync with your partner. Focus on clenching and releasing, Matkin says.
If your partner is available, have her do this with you; if not, envision her doing this. Sit cross-legged. Have your partner mount you so she is sitting in your lap. You are face to face. Breathe slowly and deliberately, trying to make only the most minute movements. Begin to sway only and if you are moving into a deep, oily, unctuous groove. Stay for as long as possible in this frictionless stance and match your breathing to hers. Breathe in her ear or on her neck. Slowly allow this to evolve into intercourse (if you choose). When it’s time to orgasm, don’t hold back.
