This pose will help you strengthen your pelvic muscles, which will ultimately help reduce pain during sex and enhance the sexual high feeling. To practice, this pose starts by laying relaxed on your back and bend both the knees placing your feet hip-width apart with your knees in line with your ankles. Then proceed to put your arms flat on the floor with your palms against the ground and spread your fingers. Now let’s lift your pelvic region off the ground, allowing your torso to follow, but keep your shoulders and head on the floor. You should hold the pose for 5 seconds and then release back to the relaxed initial pose. Repeat this asana 10-15 times.
