Another Reason to Exercise: Better Sex Through Yoga

Steering your sex drive in the right direction can easily be derailed by stress, but getting it to a satisfying place could be as simple as incorporating yoga in your fitness regimen. According to a recent article in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, women noticed improved levels of arousal and desire — and even experienced better orgasms — through practicing Eastern techniques of mindfulness and yoga.

Living in the present moment is an important focus of yoga, so it's easy to see how training our minds and bodies to remain present and aware could benefit our time in the bedroom. Venturing to your local studio is one way to get started, but many gyms offer group yoga classes and there's no reason why you couldn't start doing yoga on your own. Check out some yoga DVDs (if you're so inclined, there's the Better Sex Through Yoga series) and maybe get your honey involved by trying partner yoga at home.

I bought this set a long while ago, but I have to be honest: I've never opened the box. I saw this and thought it would make yoga fun for me, but I haven't given it a chance....My boyfriend has a few advanced yoga dvds that are far to difficult for me, but hopefully I'll be able to catch up one day. I work out often, but I guess I really don't have my breathing or flexibility down at all.
