To perform this pose, first lie on your back. Then bend both your knees with your arms flat on the floor. Your knees should be in line with your ankles, and your feet should be hip-width apart. Your palms should be against the ground. Then you can lift your pelvic area upwards along with your torso, but keep your head and shoulders on the floor. This pose should be held for around 5 seconds.

Child’s Pose

This pose opens your hips without needing to be flexible. It can help you find relaxation and reduce the feeling of anxiety.

To begin this pose, start by kneeling on the floor. Your feet should be next to each other, but your knees should be around a hip-width apart. Lean forward while exhaling. You should stretch your hands in front of you and let your body relax into the stretch, between your legs. You should try to get your forehead to touch the mat, but you can also rest your head on a pillow. This pose should be held for upwards of 30 seconds.

Cat/Cow Flow

Performing this flow of yoga poses can help to loosen your back and bring relaxation. As you move from the cat pose to the cow pose, your blood flow will increase in the pelvic area. This can improve your sexual performance.

For this pose, start on all fours with your wrists underneath your shoulders and knees in line with your hips. Inhale and look up, letting your stomach curve towards the floor. Then exhale as you tuck your chin back into your chest and round your spine towards the ceiling. Slowly move between these two poses for around 1 minute.

Happy Baby Pose

Begin this pose by lying on your back. While exhaling, bend your knees and move them towards your stomach. Then inhale and reach up to grab your feet, widening your knees. Next, push the heels of your foot upwards, flexing your feet and stretching your hands down. Hold this position for upwards of 30 seconds.

This should create an inverted V shape with your body and lengthen through your spine. Make sure to stretch your shoulders away from your ears and relax your neck. Hold this pose for around 5 seconds.
