Welcome to third and final part of our three part blog series on Yoni Egg Practice to enhance your sex life and improve your pelvic muscles.
In our blog series so far we have looked at how to select a yoni egg; at how a yoni egg and yoni egg practices can enhance your love life and transform your pelvic muscles. We looked in the last blog at how to insert and remove the yoni egg and at some yoni egg exercises. Today’s blog is looking to enhance your understanding of how to tighten your vagina with the yoni egg.
Understanding Vaginal Tightening with the Yoni Egg
The Yoni egg practice has been associated with both physical and spiritual benefits that include:
- Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles
- Helping strengthen the vaginal muscles after childbirth
- Helping maintain healthy reproductive organs
- Tightening and toning the vaginal wall which leads to heightened sexual pleasure for you and your partner
- Reduces cramping and abdominal pain during times of menstruation
- Increases orgasmic potential, increasing intensity and sensitivity of orgasms
- Prevents sagging of the uterus, rectum, and bladder which can help incontinence problems
- Stimulates the nerves inside the vagina giving you an increased connection with your yoni
- By increasing the strength of the vaginal muscles it gives the woman more control during sexual intercourse.
Leading a sedentary lifestyle and sitting or worse slouching on comfortable seats and sofas as oppose to squatting on your haunches as once practiced in the East, has meant that for many Western men and women their pelvic muscles have become slack and weakened. It is a myth that this is just a matter of concern for women post-birth, simply put, just like all other muscles, if you don’t use them you lose them. Through the use of a yoni egg, no matter what your age a woman’s pelvic muscles can be strengthened and tautened.
The muscle of primary importance in this process is the (PC) the pubococcygeus muscle which is an amazing muscle that spans wider than any other skeletal muscle in the human body. It is interwoven and surrounded by four sets of other pelvic muscles and is the master muscle of the pelvis and unlike any other muscle it can recover its full function after years of disuse.
In order to get the most out of your body and your yoni egg practices it is necessary for you to gain a basic understanding of the internal anatomy of your pelvis and by looking at the illustrations in this guide you will be able to visually comprehend the enormous potential this sacred area of your body has for strength, control, movement and sensation.
Through Practice with your Yoni Egg you will master control of all your pelvic floor muscles referred to as the pelvic girdle.
Three Sections of the Vaginal Chamber
In order to gain specific control through the egg exercises, we divide the vaginal chamber into three sections
1) The external vaginal Cavity and front of the vaginal canal
The first section includes the muscles of the external vaginal orifice and the front part of the vaginal canal. When the egg is inserted, when you insert your egg you will contract the uterus, closing the cavity tightly so that the egg cannot drop out. This may take practice and it is recommended that you practice retaining the egg whilst standing on a towel or soft surface, in case the egg drops out.
The anterior of the cervix
The second section to be contracted consists of the muscles of the vaginal canal immediately in front of the cervix.
The middle of the vaginal canal.
The third section encompasses the muscles of the middle of the vaginal canal. These are the muscles that will move the egg up and down, left and right, and tilt it in different directions. Gaining control over these muscles takes time and practice. You will practice moving and using these muscles until you master their movement as easily as using your hand. As you play with the direction you will learn to differentiate each movement of these muscles. It is best to practice for a few minutes at a time, regularly rather than in long bursts. As you practice with your egg you can gradually increase the length of time you retain it. Just remember that it is there, since laughing, sneezing, or coughing can sometimes cause the egg to drop out of the vagina, especially when you don’t have full control of these muscles.
The Three Sections of the Vaginal Chamber
Summary of Egg Exercises Step-By-Step
- Cleanse your egg
- Thread your egg
- Prepare your space – make sure you prepare a pleasant, comfortable and quiet space for you to work in
- Breast massage – Massage your breasts until you begin to feel arousal and lubrication in the vagina.
- Apply Lubrication if necessary
- Relax and Insert the egg – when you feel ready insert the egg into the vagina (yoni).
- Contract the First Section
- Isolate and contract the muscle groups responsible for closing the external vaginal chamber tightly. This will help to keep the egg in the vaginal canal and prevent it from dropping out.
- Begin with Exercise 1 in the second blog and once you feel comfortable with this exercise you can work through the other exercises.
- Practice contracting the vaginal sections. Firstly, consciously contract the First Section Relax Inhale and contract the vaginal canal muscles immediately in front of the cervix so that you are now contracting two sections at the same time. Keep both points closed.
- Squeeze the Third Section
- Slightly squeeze the egg from the middle of the vaginal canal until you feel that you have a good grip on it. Inhale and squeeze again, gradually increasing the squeeze, and then inhale more and squeeze with more intensity. Once you feel you have a good grip on the egg and are ready attempt to slowly move it up and down.
- Rest – Rest is very important. So make sure that you take a rest when you feel you need one
- When you finish, rest for a moment and just allow yourself to feel the energy in your ovaries and uterus. Take deep breaths and enjoy the sense of revitalisation.
It is our advice that you start the practice with Nephrite Jade, however, if your intuition tells you to work with another type of crystal then please follow the draw of your own body and intuition.
Below is a brief explanation of some of the mot common crystals that yoni eggs are made from:
Nephrite Jade – This crystal communicates with the Heart chakra. Nephrite jade is often referred to as the stone of dreams and is considered a deeply restorative crystal. Energetically it balances the water of the body and therefore is beneficial for the entire system, but especially for the kidneys and female reproductive system. A grounding, healing, calming and overall healing stone.
Rose Quartz – This crystal is often referred to as the Love Stone and this is because it corresponds strongly to the Heart chakra. It is often thought of a feminine stone because of its emotionally healing and gentle properties, it helps dissolve the barriers and blockages we have against feeling, giving and receiving the energy of love. It is an excellent stone for nourishing love and the ability to receive love.
Black Obsidian – Obsidian is a very transformative and protective stone. A powerful ally for releasing trauma and emotions stored in the body, especially in the pelvis. Obsidian helps to promote the release of negative energy and is powerfully protective.
When choosing a yoni egg it is essential that you buy from a reputable seller. Under no circumstances must you use a crystal that is not specifically sold as a Yoni Egg. This because chemicals, dyes and artificial fillers are regularly used during the manufacturing process of many decorative crystals sold on the market. A true yoni egg will be a natural stone that is purely polished and drilled.
Finally, we hope you enjoy using your yoni egg and that you have enjoyed learning and practicing these easy and life changing exercises. Remember this work is not just for women who have issues with pelvic floor strength; it is for all women regardless of current pelvic floor strength or reasons for learning.
