Now, there are plenty of drugs that claim to be able to increase your stamina. The main problem with them is that they are expensive and they come with a whole lot of side effects that we can all do without. Rather than depending on these chemicals that can cause more problems, why not opt for better and more natural methods of improving your sexual stamina? Here we have a list of yoga asanas along with breathing instructions and poses that you can try in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a yoga mat and some comfy clothes to get started. The yoga asanas will also help improve your mental health by helping you become more relaxed.
NOTE: Only try these asanas after consulting your doctor, especially if you have any back problems, joint pains, etc or if your family has a history of getting them.
Focus on your breath (Pranayama)
The way you breathe can really impact your stress levels since each breath throws out the toxins from your body by exhaling. This can also be done either while seated on a chair, cross-legged on the floor, sitting in padmasana (kneeling down and resting on your feet) or by lying down. If you choose to lie down, place a pillow under your knees before you start:
1. Place your hand on your stomach and take a deep breathe in. You should feel your belly expand as you do so.
2. Hold the breath for two seconds and then exhale.
3. Feel your navel roll back in towards your spine as you exhale. At the same time, contract your perineal muscles (between your genitalia and your anus).
4. As you inhale, feel your stomach expand again and relax your perineal muscles.
Butterfly pose (Patangasana/Titali Asana)
This asana helps to open up the thighs and hips. It is also great for relaxing and stretching the thighs. This should be done by sitting down on a mat.
1. Sit on the mat with your knees bent and your feet close to your hips.
2. Hold your feet and bring them close so that the soles of the feet are touching.
3. While holding your feet, lift your knees up and down. Continue for 15 steady breaths.
4. Slowly stretch your legs out from this pose and relax.
Child pose (Balasana)
It helps stretch out the thighs, hips and back muscles. It is known to relieve pain in the lower back and torso. It can also help calm your nervous system. Again, this asana starts by sitting on a mat. Start by sitting in padmasana (kneeling down, resting on your feet).
1. With your hips resting on your feet, slowly lean forward till your head touches the floor.
2. Stretch your arms out alongside your body, with your palms flat on the ground.
3. Gently press your chest against your thighs. Hold the position for 10 seconds.
4. Slowly return to the initial position - padmasana.
Downward dog pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
The downward dog pose, like all other asanas, helps to stimulate various organs in your body. The speciality of this pose is that it energizes the body by promoting the blood flow and also helps to relax the body and mind. This asana starts out by getting down on all fours on your yoga mat (back straight with your knees, toes and palms on the ground).
1. From the initial pose, gently curl your toes and bring the balls of your feet on the ground.
2. Raise your hips high up, away from the ground and stretch your arms out as well.
3. You should be facing your knees at this point. Hold this position for 10 seconds.
4. Slowly return to your initial position by bringing your knees and elbows back towards the ground.
