This asana unlocks the power of your whole body by opening up your hip and spine for better endurance, support and blood circulation. An easy way to de-stress, this asana leaves you feeling relaxed and full of energy for that raunchilicious romp. Here’s how you do it- stand on your knees and slowly grip your heels with your hands pushing your hips forward, arching your back and dropping your head backwards. Breathe normally in that posture for 10 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times.

2. Setu Bandhasana

This asana is a core-strengthening asana which immensely benefits your pelvic strength too. By ensuring an increased blood-flow to your genital area and stimulating the sexual chakra in your body, this asana bears a direct impact on your libido. Want the directions? Lie on your back with your knees bent, and bring your feet as close to your buttocks as possible. Squeeze your thighs and buttocks, lift your torso and press down on your feet. Try to lift your navel as high as possible. Hold the position for at least 30 seconds and work your way up to 3 minutes. When you have completed the set, slowly lower your back to the mat one vertebra at a time until you are flat on your back with knees still bent. Repeat the exercise 3 times.

3. Anjaneyasana

An asana that strengthens your lower body, this one can be done by stepping one foot forward from a standing position, and placing it right angle to the floor by bending your knee while keeping the other foot straight at the back. The position requires you to stretch with your arms joined in a namaskar above you and arch backward so you can feel the strengthening in your bent leg and the stretching in the other. The process is to be repeated for the other side and done in sets of five to ten.

4. Mandukasana

Also known as frog pose, this asana is a toughie- but it shall lend you the endurance you’d need when sexperimenting with new positions. Stay on the mat in a table pose. Keep your ankles behind your knees and turn your feet towards the sides. Keeping your palms pressed to the floor lower yourself on the elbows and arms. Exhale and press your hip backwards to feel the stretch in your hips and thighs. Breathe in and hold for 30 counts. Rock your hip forward as you relax your breath. Come back to normal position and repeat.

Akin to a Kegel exercise, this neuromuscular lock fine-tunes your sexual hormones while providing ample exercise for your inner muscles so they can yield full control over orgasms. To do this asana, all you need to do is sit with your back straight and legs folded in. You should, then, place your hands on your knees and exhale. Next, hold your breath and imagine having to stop passing urine while in the middle of doing so. This shall enable you to squeeze your genital-anal muscles and hold for 5-10 seconds. Thereafter, slowly release while inhaling at the same time. Repeat this 3 times.

Now, bring out those yoga mats and get going! What are you waiting for?
