Keep Your Summer Steamy With These Sexy Yoga Moves

Make your summer nights even steamier with the sexy dual purpose yoga moves below!

Downward Facing Dog:This pose is one of the most commonly performed moves in yoga.  It's also known as Adho Mukha Svanasana, the pose resembles an upside down letter V.  Hands should be shoulder with apart with equal spacing between your fingers. Keeping your feet hips width apart while channelling most of your energy into your hands by pushing the floor away from you while engaging your shoulders and upper body. Avoid arching and rounding of your back to obtain perfect positioning. This can easily be achieved by most and can always be modified until you can get your heels to reach the floor.  This move is ideal for stand up "fun" vs your traditional ahem...doggy position. 

Wheel Poses: This move is a real game changer and is sure to spice up your bedroom activity. Depending on the strength of the individuals either person can be on the top or bottom, get creative!  Wheel Pose also known as Urdhva dhanurasana can be easily modified for beginners. Start by lying on the floor facing up and bend your knees with your feet flat on the floor. Keep your heels close to your sitting bone as much as possible. Next you want to bend your elbows and spread your palms on the floor beside your head. Your forearms are ideally perpendicular to the floor and fingers pointing toward your shoulders. Press your feet into the ground and take 2-3 breathes pushing upward, your tailbone up toward your pubis. Spread your shoulder blades across you back and let your head hang. 

Child Pose also known as Balasana is fairly easy and can be done in bed or on the floor, you pick!  While kneeling touch your big toes and sit on your heels while separating your knees so that they are hip width apart. Exhale and lay your upper body between your thighs.  Lay your hands facing up along side your torso with shoulders relaxed.
