YOU’VE come to this article because you want to have better sex – no shame.
Yoga instructor Olga Urbanovich shared an insightful video on how to get those hips ready for a night of passion and it just takes a little practice.
The frog pose, as it is called in yoga, will allegedly improve your sex life and you only need to practice it one minute a day to really feel the full effects.
According to the yogi, not only does the pose help your sex life, but it strengths your pelvic floor, stimulates digestions, and improves blood circulation in your pelvis.
The frog pose, which is considered an intermediate pose in yoga, takes some time easing into but once achieved, it is a hip and groin opener that targets the muscles in your adductors, hips, and core.
A naked yoga teacher and devotee Doria Gani, from southwest London, has been practicing this position and more for twelve years since battling cervical cancer.
Now Doria, 44, helps others accept their bodies and deal with trauma, just like she has come to terms with a cesarean-type scar on her pubic bone left behind after her surgery for cancer treatment and the fact she will never be able to have children.
“As 16 men and women of all shapes and sizes did a downward-facing dog naked in front of me, I felt immensely proud. As a naked yoga teacher, I was living my dream, helping others to accept their bodies.
“Growing up in Tuscany, Italy, I spent a long time battling body demons. As a teenager, I weighed just over 98 pounds, but I never felt slim enough for my 5ft 2in the frame. When I was 25, I developed bulimia and went down to an unhealthy 84 pounds, and while thankfully I recovered after a year, I still had negative thoughts about my body.
“In 2005, aged 29, I came to London to improve my English, getting a job in retail in Covent Garden. I loved London and ended up staying, but four years later my world was rocked when I noticed I was bleeding after having sex with my then-boyfriend.
“A smear test and biopsy revealed the worst possible news: I had stage 3 cervical cancer. In May 2009 I had surgery, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which pushed me into early menopause. It was devastating to be told I would never be able to have children.
“I felt weak for months after my treatment, so one day I went to a yoga class held by Macmillan Cancer Support. I’d never tried it before and it felt good to connect with my body again.
“After three classes, I felt happier and stronger, and soon I was going every day.
“I loved yoga so much that in March 2014 I took six weeks off work to train as a yoga teacher in India. A year later I went to Burning Man Festival in Nevada, where nudity is embraced.
“One morning I saw a model posing naked under a huge sculpture. It was so cool, I decided to try it.
“Stripping off, I walked up to a guy with a camera and asked him to take pictures of me. I was nervous at first as I started doing yoga poses and he snapped away, but I concentrated on my breathing, lost in the moment.
“When I came back to London, I wanted to share the feeling of liberation by teaching naked yoga, and in April 2016 I started doing one-on-one classes, fitting it around my HR job.
“I taught mostly naturists and clients who were recovering from cancer. However, when one guy asked me: ‘Are you going to touch me during the practice?’ it rang alarm bells, so I decline clients like him.
“I held my first group class in a chilly hall in south London in January 2017, and all 16 places sold out. Beforehand, I was so nervous, I was almost sick.
“I arranged everyone in a semi-circle so they were all facing me, not each other, and I told them that staring and criticism were not allowed. If I needed to correct students’ postures, I would talk them through it but not touch them, to make them comfortable.
“In 2018 I left my HR job to go full-time as a teacher. I had to hold classes over Zoom in lockdown, which worked well, but I’m looking forward to face-to-face work again when possible because some people do prefer it.
“Meanwhile, I’ve come so far since my days of bulimia. Yoga has allowed me to let go of the past, and stay mentally and physically fit.
“Helping others to love their bodies has become my life’s work.”
