Open up your pelvic muscles by practicing the frog pose and improve your sex life along the way

 Did you know that the frog pose is inspired by the famous child pose? And that’s why it takes care of everything from your pelvic floor muscles to your mental well-being.

Having stiff pelvic muscles won’t just wreak havoc on your entire fitness routine, but it will also ruin your sex life. So, if you want to get your pelvic muscle in proper gear, you need to look for a holistic way to get better and find long-term results. One of the best ways to fix this is yoga, and especially through the frog pose.

Yoga has numerous poses that work out all the muscles in your pelvic area. Do you know loosening of pelvic muscles can also lead to urinary incontinence? Not just that, but if you don’t pay heed to that region, then you can also experience painful sex, problems in childbirth, and much more.

That’s why we want to suggest you give the frog pose a chance.

This is how the frog pose can help to strengthen your pelvic muscles

The frog pose is also known as mandukasana in Sanskrit. It is an intermediate to advanced level yoga pose that is used to open your hips and groin muscles, basically the pelvic area. This yoga pose targets the muscles in your adductors (inner thigh muscles), hips, and core to increase circulation and improve your posture.

“Stretching your adductors and strengthening your core further helps in toning legs, and even the stomach,” says yoga expert Grand Master Akshar.

This is how you do the frog pose


If you have sensitive knees, consider using a yoga mat or blanket underneath, before you get into this position. This will help to soften the pressure of your knees on the floor.

In a tabletop position, slide your knees wide until you feel a gentle stretch. Feet open up behind your knees, turn your flexed feet outward, inner arches toward the ground.

With your shoulders over your elbows, place weight throughout your forearms and hands. Your wrists may stay in front of the elbows or form a triangle for support. Relaxing and allowing your hips to be heavy helps utilize gravity to guide your pubic bone downward.

Lengthen through your spine by pressing the crown of your head forward, shoulders down the spine, and tailbone toward your heels.

Yogi tip: Micro-movements of the hips, like rocking forward and back, small circles, or cat stretch/cow tilt with your tailbone, can help stretch and release the tightness of the hip joints.

Modifications


If you are being more mindful of your knees, feel free to fold your mat from both ends to help support your body weight. Putting an additional blanket under the knees may also help you get more comfortable.

In the wide-legged variation, blocks underneath your forearms can help alleviate pain in the spine or hips.

Precautions and Contraindications


If you are suffering from a peptic or duodenal ulcer, severe back pain, ankle or knee injury, cardiac pain/problems, and/or undergone abdominal surgery, it is best to avoid this asana.

“Frog pose brings stillness to the body, as it invites deep breathing and expansion of the lungs. Breathing with awareness in this pose helps relieve headaches, stress, and mild depressive symptoms. Additionally, focus on the exhale in the frog posture, as it also helps to remove toxins in the lungs, decrease the heart rate, and relieve issues such as stress and anxiety,” concludes Grand Master Akshar.
