Strike a Pose, Have an Orgasm!

Losing winter weight ain’t the only reason you should hit the gym!

According to a recent study, yoga instructors are making their students aware of the “yogasm”—otherwise known as an orgasm achieved with yoga poses.

Kate Kendall, a Sydney, Australia yoga instructor told the Daily Mail her students climax in some postures, but it has nothing to do with being turned on by a teacher or those around them, it’s due to being stimulated by certain positions.

In a way, this makes sense. After all, the point of yoga is to stabilize your core.

Yogasms aren’t rare occurrences either. A study from the University of Indiana reveals 40 percent of women have experienced coregasms—also known as exercise induced orgasms (EIO).

But it doesn’t stop there.

20 percent of women achieved an orgasm doing workouts like crunches. That’s one way to get your “ommm” on.

But exactly why are women having orgasms during yoga? Raj Barker, another Sydney yoga instructor may have the answer.

“It’s a practice that requires you to be body-aware and present, not dissimilar to love making,” he tells the Daily Mail.

“And the main poses that can help ‘get you there’ are the ones that engage the core and therefore impact the sex organs, grounding postures that activate our root chakra and tap into our sexual energy.”

In case you’re wondering (and we know you are!), some of the yoga poses that help one achieve the “Big-O” include boat pose, eagle pose, bound angle pose, wide angle seated forward bend pose and of course, rhythmic breathing.

If you’re not into Yoga yet, you might want to start now!
