The Yoni is the Sanskrit word that defines the female genitals. It is both a spiritual and a sexual organ. Spiritually, it is a symbol of divine procreative energy and the root chakra for the woman. It is also the source of recreation for the human race. Yoni yoga is practiced to provide both spiritual and sexual healing through the Yoni.
What is Yoni Yoga?
Strong vaginal muscles improve the health of a woman and her sexual drive. Sometimes, yoni yoga involves the use of yoni eggs to meditate as you exercise the pelvic floor muscles (what we call Kegels). In other cases, you practice how to breathe and relax your pelvic muscles naturally without any eggs.
Yoni eggs are polished semi-precious stones curved out of the earth’s minerals in the form of eggs.
More than 2,000 years ago, the yoni eggs were believed to have originated from China and spread to India and the rest of Asia. Yoni yoga was a reserve of the concubines of the emperor and members of the Chinese royal circle.
The Chinese royal family used green Jade, which was the first yoni egg. This stone combined its metaphysical healing properties with yoni yoga. They believed that the secret to the fountain of youth lied in having a healthy and robust yoni. I think they were right. This secret has been passed down to several generations, and now the whole world has a chance to enjoy the benefits of yoni yoga.

A Typical Yoni Yoga Class
There are several ways of practicing yoni yoga. But, first, you start with a warm-up, which can include taking deep breathes or a five-minute stretch. Lay your favorite yoga mat and insert the yoni egg in a comfortable position. Contract and release your pelvic muscles as you practice the yoga poses that are specifically targeting the pelvic area.
In a typical yoni yoga class, your instructor will take you through one or more of these poses:
The Bridge Pose
As you lie on your back, fold your legs and lift your hips as you inhale gradually. Now release as you exhale slowly.
Mandukasana – The Frog Pose
This pose makes you squat and move like a frog (although you don’t hop and jump). It targets the adductor (inner thigh) and inner groin, and as you stretch, you will feel a little tension. It is also the hardest pose to achieve with your yoni pearl inside, but once you master the technique, it will be your favorite pose.
Malasana – The Wide Squat Pose
With your legs apart and hands on your chest, squat as low as you can as you Contract and release the pelvic muscles as many times as possible. If you find it challenging, place a blanket or a soft block below your heels to support your hips.
The Wall Pose
While lying on your back against a wall using your hands for support, contract and release your pelvic muscles as you inhale and exhale slowly.
Other popular poses include:
- The Triangle Pose
- The Chair Pose
- The Camel Pose
- The Lizard Pose
- The Cobra Pose
Whichever the pose, you have to contract and release the pelvic muscles as much as you can to strengthen your yoni. It is essential that you take deep breaths as you do the poses. You should also hold a pose for at least four minutes before switching to another pose.
Apart from these poses, other activities that take place in a yoni yoga class include:
- Meditation: Reflecting upon self in thought to quiet the mind and induce relaxation.
- Tantric Yoni Massage: This is especially good in producing multiple orgasms.
Most women tend to neglect the pelvic floor muscles and only pay attention to it when they need healing. Don’t fall into this category. When the yoni awakes to pleasure, there is more blood flow, energy, and awareness of the tissues in the female genitals. Ensure the yoni egg you use is clean, made of materials that are safe and free from toxic substances. Yoni yoga, when practiced daily, can be life changing for most women.
