Impotence is one of the major and most common causes of sexual unhappiness amongst couples. This is typically characterized by the male sexual partner’s inability to sustain an erection or achieve ejaculation. To a milder extent, this condition results in inconsistent or brief achievement of erection and ejaculation.
Thankfully, certain yoga exercises come to your rescue if you are experiencing symptoms of impotence. Alcoholism, depression, stress, diabetes, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis and prostate cancer, have been identified as some of the causes of the occurrence of this condition in men. These exercises, along with medical treatment, will surely restore your sexual happiness, if you follow them for the time periods suggested by your yoga coach and physician.
Yoga Exercises For Impotence
Pranayama (Yoga Breathing)
Pranayama or Yoga Breathing Exercises are one of the most effective breathing exercises to eliminate toxins from your body and enrich it with fresh oxygen. Pranayama consists of a set of rhythmic breathing exercises that are known to be effective in treating even lethal diseases such as cancer.
A simple pranayama exercise that you could practice, for relieving stress, is to simply breathe in and breathe out with full awareness and in a timed manner. This exercise is aimed at relieving stress, which is one of the major causes of impotence, in the present times. Take a deep breath, slowly, focusing on it. Hold it for a couple of seconds. Release it, slowly, while focusing on the process completely. This exercise should be practiced as the first yoga exercise for approximately 9 minutes.
Bhujangasana (Snake Or Cobra Pose)
Bhujangasana makes you assume a snake-like pose, while performing it. Lie down on the floor on your abdomen with your entire body in contact with the floor (you should be resting on a yoga mat) with your mid-foot in total contact with the floor, on the other side of your sole. Place your hands by your side and lift your body from the head to the abdomen regions, above the ground.
Turn your face upwards and point your gaze towards the top. Remain in this position for 30-60 seconds and return back to the resting pose. Repeat this exercise 3-5 times every day. You can do more if you want. This improves sexual health by relieving stress, by strengthening the reproductive organs and by awakening kundalini.
Pawanmuktasana (Wind Relieving Pose)
Pawanmuktasana is beneficial in treating impotence, amongst other benefits, by stimulating the reproductive organs. To perform this asana, lie down flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your knees and bring them together to your chest.
Raise your head and neck, hug your knees with your arms and try to touch your knees with your nose. Stay in that position for 30-60 seconds and return to resting position. Repeat this exercise 3-5 times.
Kandasana (The Knotted Root Pose)
Kandasana is specially dedicated to improve sexual health by addressing all kinds of sexual ailments. It stimulates the reproductive organs of males.
To perform this asana, squat on the floor, bend your legs at your knees and pull them towards your chest, with your soles touching your chest. Remain in this position for 30-60 secs, return to resting position and repeat this exercise.
