Is there even a link between improving sexual fitness and an exercise like Yoga? Down the centuries, yoga practices have always laid tremendous emphasis on a healthy sexual life.
The spiritual and sexual connection between yoga and intimacy has been debated by Ellen Barrett in her book, Sexy Yoga. "Yoga means union in Sanskrit, and it focuses on bringing one's body into harmony with the mind and spirit. The awareness of sexuality through yoga is deeper and more intimate. These are exercises, which are beneficial for you and your partner, which blend meditation, breath control and asanas. Yoga is about discovering the joys of elegant sexuality," says Barrett.
The healing power of Yoga is so strong that people who are physiologically weak and to some extent or even fully impotent may regain their potency as their physical health is revived through Yoga. Many folks admit that their marital relationship is improving after taking up yoga.
