The yoni egg exercises help to obtain better and longer-lasting results. Even though it is supposed to work well even without additional exercises, adding some workout to target your pelvic muscles is said to yield better results. It is therefore ideal if you are looking to see results sooner and enjoy benefits longer. This article will give a short guide on the types of exercises you can carry out with a yoni egg and how to go about them safely without hurting yourself or damaging the egg. It is, however, that you get a go-ahead from your gynaecologist or doctor to prevent complications, especially if your sexual and reproductive health is fragile.
Kegels target the muscles in the pelvic floor. They often involve contracting the muscles and holding them before releasing and repeating. Yoni eggs add some weight and resistance to your training for better and long-lasting results. Here’s how to go about your Kegels with a yoni egg in place:
- Identify the correct muscles on the pelvic floor
- Practice doing your Kegels properly without the egg first. This means working with the pelvic muscles instead of the butt, thighs and abdomen.
- When you muster your Kegels, insert the yoni egg with the larger side in first.
- Start doing the Kegels with the egg in. You can start by holding it for at least five seconds before releasing it. You can then try with up to fifteen seconds between intervals for up to five minutes in one session.
Kegels with the jade egg can be performed while standing up, laying down or while sitting. If your egg doesn’t hold when standing up, try while lying down. With time, you’ll get a better grip, and you will be able to hold it when standing up.
Kegels for Advanced Training
It is recommended that you only try these if you have worked with the Kegels above for a while and can perform them with extreme ease. This means that you can hold the egg in place while lying down, standing up or sitting down and go an entire five-minute session without difficulty.
- Squat Kegels – These are done in a squatting position. You will need to spread your legs to your shoulder width then squat, just like in regular workout. With your jade egg in place, contract your pelvic muscles and hold it for five seconds then rest, going on to 20 seconds max.
- Lunge Kegels – Put one leg in front of the other then bend your knees to make a lunge. While in this position, hold the egg for five to fifteen seconds then release it.
Kegels with Resistance Training
You will need a drilled egg to carry out these particular Kegels. Some egg sets include both drilled and undrilled egg sets: if you don’t have one, you will need to buy it. This is because you will be using the string to increase resistance to strengthen your vaginal grip. It would be best if you also tried these once you muster the regular Kegels so that you don’t work out the wrong muscles.
- Make sure that the string is very clean, preferably sanitized before tying it to the egg. This will help prevent the transfer of infectious bacteria and germs to your genital area.
- Insert the egg slowly with the bigger part going in first. The string should be visible and long enough to hold comfortably, just like that of a tampon.
- Start your Kegels in your preferred position. Make sure you can get hold of the string while you are at it without too much effort. Make sure you can work your pelvic floor muscles without holding your breath or having too much difficulty.
- When holding your muscles, pull the string gently so that the egg moves slightly without coming out. This helps your pelvic muscles build more strength and grip.
While most of the physical benefits of using the jade eggs come with regular use and extra exercise, the egg is also popular for purported spiritual wellness. Yogis will often point out that the womb space is sacred and one of the focuses of feminine energy.
Yoga is a great way to rest your mind a create a deeper connection with yourself and your spirit. Yoni yoga will need you to have some prior knowledge of yoga moves that help you connect with your pelvic floor area and womb space.
To do yoni yoga, you will need to insert the egg and be able to hold it in place when moving throughout your session. If the egg is slipping out, try the regular Kegels first until you can hold it in place comfortably. This will help a lot because yoga involves a lot of movement, and the egg can easily come out and even break.
When the egg is in place, start yoga with a particular focus on your womb space. Try to make a deep connection while holding the egg and releasing it in intervals, just as in Kegels. You can break your yoga routine once in a while and do some Kegels.
Yoni yoga is supposed to help you strengthen your connection to your womb space and get in touch with your femininity. When done frequently, it should be able to help heal your traumas and help you maintain a healthy sexual balance.
In conclusion, this is not an exhaustive guide. There are many more exercises you can perform with your yoni egg for the strength and healing of your pelvic floor muscles. It is essential, however, that you seek clearance with your doctor or gynae so that you don’t jeopardize your reproductive and sexual health in the process. This is especially applicable to women who have just given birth, those who are recovering from surgery, undergoing treatment or healing from certain conditions and even those on their periods. As a final note, take care of your egg so that it doesn’t crack or get chipped when working out– it could cause some severe injuries when being used.
