Sexual satisfaction requires a complex combination of mental, physical, and spiritual health. If our bodies aren't flexible or accustomed to physical activity, it can be difficult to be an active participant in our sex lives. And, if our minds are racing in a thousand directions — constantly pinging from that unsent email to that disagreement with a friend — we won't be fully present in a sexual experience. While this physical-mental balance seems elusive, the practice of yoga can help open the body and
center the mind. We asked expert yogi and founder of Strala Tara Stiles
to showcase six yoga poses that support sexual pleasure. Ahead, asanas to help folks of all fitness levels get in the mood.
