When it comes to vaginal tightening the first thing that usually comes to mind is the kegel gospel of squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. The problem is you can’t simply kegel your vaginal canal and expect to get a toned and tighter yoni with only contractions and releases (kegels). The reason being is that the muscles that are responsible for vaginal tightness are not actually located inside our vaginal canals, making the traditional kegel exercises obsolete. In fact, Dr. Arnold Kegel, the man behind the original kegel exercise originally taught women to do their kegels with added resistance and weight.
Now before we dive in, I’d like to say that a super tight vagina is not the goal here. Too much tension or tightness in the vagina is not a good thing as it can create other problems like pain, decreased blood flow, numbness and so on.
The goal is to strengthen a weak pelvic floor, which then tones, lifts and tightens the vaginal canal back to a healthy and balanced state.
It’s always a good idea to seek professional help from a pelvic floor physical therapist or an experienced GYN if you feel you need to.
Let’s take a look at the amazing anatomy of the female body, so you get a better understanding of where you need to concentrate your energy when working out your vaginal muscles with yoni eggs.
Our pelvic floor muscles are the support for the core of our bodies, the “hammock” that carries and supports the weight of our center. These muscles look like a hammock, they run from the pubic bone in the front to the end of the spinal column (tail bone) in the back, providing support to all the organs in the abdomen and pelvic floor.
You can see the pelvic floor “hammock” muscles in the picture to the left.
Just like a real hammock, it can become torn, stretched and worn. In fact, it can become so torn, stretched, or worn that the pelvic organs begin to prolapse (fall out of the vagina). In addition, other problems like urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, weak orgasms, numbness (also during sex), vaginal looseness, dryness, too much lubrication, not enough friction/feeling for your partner during sex and even trouble pushing during child birth can be a consequence of a weak pelvic floor. Check out the picture below that shows what happens when our “hammock” is loose.
The picture on the right shows a weak, thin and loose pelvic floor muscle. A consequence of that is floppy, sagging organs. Notice how loose the vaginal canal is and how firm and toned it is with a strong, healthy pelvic floor muscle? It’s all about the Hammock! This one muscle (actually there are 16 muscles that make up the pelvic floor hammock, but we will think of them as a single unit to make it easier) sure is responsible for holding a lot of precious organs in place. Check out how the other organs almost look deformed. It’s no wonder we have an epidemic of urinary incontinence, constipation, low sex drive, hormone imbalances, heavy periods and overall weak pelvic floors.
The good news is keeping your pelvic floor muscles supple, strong and responsive is relatively easy and takes just a few minutes each day. Before you know it your “pee pee” problems and other girly issues will be a thing of the past and you’ll have the vaginal vitality every woman dreams of. You’ll be able to give your man earth shaking pleasure and stimulation and your orgasms will rise to a whole new realm of power.
Yoni Eggs strengthen the pelvic floor and tone the vaginal canal by adding resistance and weight to the pelvic floor muscles, so they can grow strong. It’s just like working out at the gym. You wouldn’t simply flex your arm and expect to build a strong and ripped bicep. It’s the same concept with Yoni Eggs and kegels…you can’t simply kegel and expect to heal and strengthen your pelvic floor. You need some help by the lovely crystal queens, Yoni Eggs.
When you preform a kegel exercise with a Yoni Egg your giving your pelvic floor muscles, “the hammock” the weight it needs to strengthen and heal. By articulating your vaginal canal with a Yoni Egg by lifting and squeezing, you stimulate the correct muscles to grow strong and vibrant. Your vaginal canal is an important tool for pelvic floor training; think of her as your hand holding a weight, you need your hand to hold the weight to be able to lift which then strengthens your bicep. Get it? Same concept with yoni eggs. Throw in some additional moves from Yoni Yoga (while doing a yoni egg kegel squeeze) and it’s a pelvic floor muscle building match made in nirvana.
In addition, Yoni Eggs also work their magic by increasing healthy, fresh blood flow to the pelvic floor. Our ovaries are responsible for many of our female sex hormones. When they are weak and unsupported they may not be able to function at their full capacity. Yoni Eggs warm the yoni, circulate and awaken sexual energy and massage the reflexology zones (we call it erotic reflexology) inside the yoni. When women activate their womb space with yoni eggs they start to cultivate life-force energy and tap into their spiritual and feminine selves.
How to preform a kegel squeeze with Yoni Eggs.
Kegel squeezes are more than just flexing and releasing your vaginal canal. In order to really engage your pelvic floor muscles, “the hammock” you’ll need to squeeze a few more areas. Here’s how:
First take a deep breathe in. Upon exhale, preform your kegel squeeze in the sequence below (this step takes practice as most of us are trained to do our kegel squeezes with our inhale).
With your Yoni Egg inside, gently pull your lower abdomen in (this should be a gentle inward pull, not a hard contraction). Next, squeeze and lift the anus, then the vaginal canal (upward and in) and urethrea. Try and touch your vaginal walls together, picture “the hammock” tight and firm. Hold for 10 seconds and then fully release, completely relaxing your entire pelvic floor and lower abdomen. The release and relaxation is equally important to the kegel squeeze. Relax for 5 seconds in between sets. Do this two to three times a day if you can. Helpful tip: visualize your pelvic floor muscles, with each kegel squeeze picture them firm and strong like the picture above. Concentrate your energy to your womb, and visualize your pelvic floor toned and vibrant with each squeeze. Consider this exercise sacred as you connect with your womb space.
You can add weights to your Yoni Egg to really give your pelvic floor muscles a nice work out.
Yoni Yoga is a delightful yoga sequence geared towards pelvic floor strengthening. You preform pelvic specific yoga poses while using your yoni egg while doing your kegels. It’s a fun and effective way to really step up your pelvic floor and vaginal tightening routine. We offer a free yoni yoga eBook with every yoni egg purchase and also have a fun sequence you can do here: http://yoniyogalove.com/yoni-yoga-sequence/
