Yoga helps improve your sexual well-being by not only increasing body awareness, but by reducing anxiety and increasing blood flow to the genital area. Yoga is not only deeply relaxing but improves cardiovascular fitness too, which improves energy levels and endurance.
Define your Muscles
Yoga exercises both the slow twitch and fast twitch muscle fibres, and exercises the muscles in a holistic way which creates a deep acting, pulse effect within the muscular system. This in turn creates not only a smoother muscular definition, but greater muscular health.

This results in overall better muscle condition so you prevent your body being injured. It also helps relieve lactic acid build up through stretching making you able to bounce back from soreness faster
