Yoga allows you to hone your mental focus, rid your system of toxins, and maybe even boost your performance in the bedroom. Improved flexibility is a bonus from Yoga, and flexibility is a key ingredient when it comes to bedroom prowess.

It’s such a letdown to realize that you need to take a breather during sex because you simply don’t have the stamina to continue. Yoga techniques for building core stability and muscle control can increase stamina.

During yoga, you may practice alternate breathing, or bellow breathing. Meanwhile, you focus on clearing your mind while concentrating on nothing but your breathing. The sitting position or posture you assume during yoga allows for more oxygen-rich blood to flow from your lower torso, back, up to the heart and through to the brain. You’ll get a boost in energy and an improved state of mind that can focus better.
While we may often exercise our hearts and lungs by a variety of cardiovascular workouts, our brains remain dormant. Yoga and meditation is one way through which you can exercise your brain. Yet few people practice yoga to improve brain function. With yoga, you can effectively increase your mental fortitude, level off moods and even decrease hunger and addiction issues. Placing your hands on the ear lobes while you do your squats maybe all you need to see improvement quickly.
