Valentine’s Day is almost here! Those of you lucky enough to have a special someone are probably planning on a steamy night between the sheets. But is your body ready for bed? We’re here to help. And thankfully, there’s more to sex-prep than bikini waxes and kegel exercises.
These four yoga poses will make you stronger, more limber, and even better in the sack. Let your guy watch you stretch it out, and we guarantee you’ll both be rushing to get it on.
1. Boat Pose: Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you. Lift the top of the sternum and lean back slightly, making sure to keep your back straight. Continue to lean until your are resting on your tail bone and two sitting bones.
As you exhale, bend your knees and lift them off of the floor. If you can, straighten your legs and bring the tips of your toes just above eye level. Stretch your arms alongside your legs, spreading the shoulder blades.
2. Cat/Cow Pose: Start on your hands and knees with your legs hip-width apart, and your arms in line with your shoulders. Inhale, and tilt your tailbone up and lift your chest. As you exhale, tuck your tailbone while rounding your back and bringing your stomach up. The spine stretching move will help you loosen your lower body and look sexy while doing it. Check out this video to see how it’s done.
3. Forward Bend Pose: Step or lightly hop your feet 3.5-4 feet apart, making sure they are parallel. Lift your inner arches and press the outer edges of your feet into the floor. On your exhale, lean your torso forward at the hip joints, and extend your arms to press your finger tips into the floor directly below your shoulders.Push your thighs back to lengthen the torso. What guy wouldn’t like this view of his girl?
4. Bow Pose: Lie on your stomach with your arms alongside your torso, palms facing up. Exhale and bend your knees, bringing your ankles as close as possible to your butt. Reach back with your hands and grab hold of your ankles, making sure that your knees are no more than hip-width apart.
If you can, lift your heels away from your bum, and your thighs away from the floor. This should cause your upper torso and head to lift away from the floor as well. Make sure to keep your back muscles soft and relax your shoulders away from your ears.
Feeling sexy yet? We bet your man is! Here’s to the best V-Day sex ever!
