Defined as: A connection of physical, mental and spiritual exercises while you channel the energy of your yoni through your mind body and spirit. Yoni Yoga is comprised of physical techniques (known as poses) that focus on the pelvic muscles combined with meditative breath work and womb connection. Yoni Yoga is used to strengthen, heal and promote a healthy womb space, as well as, expanding awareness and connecting with feminine energy while surrendering to the moment allowing one to be present with themselves, activating Shakti and pushing through any blocks.
Yoni yoga can be done with or with out a yoni egg. By using a yoni egg during your practice you will get a deeper physical exercise and deeper spiritual work by activating the metaphysical energies. If you choose to use your yoni egg, focus on contracting and releasing your pelvic floor muscles at the same time you breathe within your poses. During each yoga pose, concentrate on deep controlled breathing while making a conscious connection with your womb space.

Start by laying on your back with knees bent and feet on floor. Extend your arms along the floor, palms flat. Inhale as you lift your hips toward the ceiling while doing a kegel contraction. Hold for up to one minute. Relax your pelvic floor and exhale as you slowly come down. Repeat for desired reps.
Start by lying on your back with legs together pressed flat against the wall. Inhale and let your legs fall out to the sides so they make a “V” shape while doing a kegel contraction. Exhale and bring your legs back together while relaxing your pelvic floor. Repeat for desired reps.
Start on your hands and knees (table top position). Walk your knees as far apart as they will comfortably go (you should feel a deep stretch in your hips). Inhale and elongate spine and upper body while doing a kegel contraction. Exhale to relax spine and pelvic floor. Repeat for desired reps.
Start with your legs shoulder width apart. Squat down as far as you can comfortably go. The deeper the squat, the better. Hold this position while contracting and relaxing your pelvic floor muscles. This is also great for practicing vaginal weight lifting. Repeat exercise for desired reps.
