The key to a great sex life is yoga. Ellen Barrett, author of the book Sexy Yoga, explained to Prevention that a great sex life and yoga are both based on mind-body connections, making them similar in practice.

“Not only is yoga an amazing stress reliever, but certain postures improve flexibility, increase blood flow, and open your heart—all of which are necessary for a hot sex life,” Barrett said. 

So, whether you're OMmmming or OhMyyyyyying, mastering these five yoga poses is guaranteed to improve your performance between the sheets.

One-Legged Downward-Facing Dog

Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana, or the One-Legged Downward-Facing Dog Pose, offers all the benefits associated with the classic Downward-Facing Dog, while also adding another element—balance. 

These two positions are great full-body poses, and offer several benefits, such as strengthening the arms, while also stretching the hamstrings. 

They also stretch the hip flexors, which tend to tighten due to prolonged sitting. Stretching these muscles = revamped sex life. 

To perform the pose correctly, start in Downward-Facing Dog. Yoga Journal offers step-by-step instructions, as well as a detailed video to guide beginners through the pose.

Once confident with the classic posture, challenge yourself by attempting the one-legged phase. 

Slowly lift the right leg off the floor, raising it as high as possible without sacrificing balance. Do not tilt the pelvis or twist the spine, it's very important to maintain the square positioning of the pelvis and shoulders from the original Downward-Facing Dog posture. 

Hold for two to three breaths and slowly release.
