Yoni Egg Exercises
You can use your yoni egg for physical exercises in addition to crystal healing. Using your egg for kegels will help reduce menstrual cramps and can strengthen pelvic floor muscles. You can even grow new nerve endings – resulting in enhanced sexual pleasure. You don’t have to do specific exercises to receive these benefits from your yoni egg, but are more likely to have these specific effects with exercise. Do what feels good and right for you, and make sure you don’t overdo it. You can overwork the vagina muscles and have the opposite effect.
Kegels have been practiced by humans for over 6,000 years. In ancient tradition, it is believed that the strong pelvic floor intensifies prana, aka ‘life force’ energy. The first Indian yogis and ancient Romans did similar exercises. As you perform kegel exercises and build that strength from the ‘floor’ up, you are cultivating powerful inner goddess and godly energy. If you do yoga, this probably sounds familiar, as when you pull energy from the ground through your feet.
Benefits of the yoni egg include:
Heals energetic blockages and awakens sexual energy.
A tool to help recover from sexual traumas.
It is a balancer – find cohesion in mind, body, and soul.
Increases blood flow.
Enhanced sensitivity – working with the egg helps your neural system to develop more nerves. You may be able to feel and orgasm in spots you haven’t been able to before, such as your g-spot or cervix area.
Birth training- having a powerful and energetically healthy vagina helps to have a safer birth with less pain.
Besides kegels and breath work, physical exercises can be done to seek even more benefits from this tool. These exercises include plank pose, leg lifts, squat, bridge, and more. All of these may help strengthen pelvic floor and core muscles, which go hand in hand. Watch the video below to be guided through some of these exercises.
SQUATS — With your feet wider than hip-width apart, bend your knees and squat down as if you were sitting in a chair. Try to get your thighs parallel with the floor. Engage abdominal muscles and try to keep the spine and torso long and reaching. Make sure your knees don’t shoot past your toes, and that the knees are in line with the second toe. Stand up to return to starting position. Repeat. Do two to three sets of 12 repetitions.
BRIDGE — Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Have your feet hip width apart, and ankles aligned with knees in a 90 degree angle. Inhale, engage Yoni muscles and lift your hips. Hold up for 10 seconds, while keeping your breath consistent. then lower your hips, exhale and release your pelvic floor muscles.
LEG LIFT — Lie on your back with your legs straight and together, tuck your hands under your rear to engage your lower back with the floor. Raise your legs slowly off the floor until they form a right angle with your hips. Hold, and then slowly lower your legs to the floor. Repeat, keeping speed slow and consistent. Do two to three sets of 10 repetitions.
PLANK — Start in a push-up position with your shoulders directly over your wrists. Keep the arms straight, and keep your neck in line with your spine – creating a straight line from your heals to the crown of your head. Push your heels back to straighten your legs and keep the hips from sagging. Engage your abdominal muscles and hold plank pose anywhere between 30 seconds and 1 minute.
