Yoni Health 

What is a Yoni Egg?

Yoni Egg, Jade Egg, or Love Egg are names for a beautiful semiprecious stone carved into an egg shape and polished to be worn inside the vagina.

It is estimated that women have been practicing with stone eggs for over 5,000 years. Empresses and concubines of the Royal Palace of China used eggs carved out of jade to access sexual power, awaken sensuality and maintain amazing health into their old age. Up until recently, this ancient, secret practice was only available to members of the royal family, and to select Taoist practitioners. 

“Yoni” is a Sanskrit word for the female genitalia that means “sacred space.” Its symbol has been worshiped in Eastern cultures since ancient times for bestowing life, creativity and love. We will be using the term “yoni” to bring appreciation and acknowledgment – so often lacking in Western culture – to the creative power this magical part of the female body holds. The Yoni Egg isn’t just an exquisite accessory that will add charm to your night stand. It isn’t just a great tool for kegel exercises, or a way to maintain health, have better orgasms and more fulfilling sex. The Yoni Egg is an ancient, sacred tool for spiritual transformation.

Here are a few tips and tricks for beginners

1. Consistency is key.
If your serious about implementing changes into your life, whether it be a stronger pelvic floor, self confidence, earth shattering orgasms, postpartum recovery, manifesting, cultivating feminine energy and power, you must stay consistent with using your yoni egg. We recommend using your yoni egg at least three times a week for best results. Set aside some YOU time. It can be in the mornings while your getting ready, at night after the kids are in bed, or whenever is good for you. Aim for 30 minutes to an hour each session; 5-10 minutes for yoni exercises. Staying consistent with your yoni egg practice will give you the results you dream of. 

2. Energy concentration and sensory awareness
Starting a yoni egg practice can be a little overwhelming, I get it. But there are hundreds of different ways you can use your yoni egg. The best tip is to simply insert your yoni egg and concentrate your energy to your womb space. With each breath, breathe into your womb space and exhale out of your womb space. A good time to start is during a movie at home, or reading a book before bed. By doing this your creating sensory awareness in your yoni by the ability to receive and differentiate sensory stimuli. This natural intelligence literally awakens your womb space subconsciously through your sensory system just by having your yoni egg inside.

3. Pelvic floor fitness with legal squeezes
A fun way to work your pelvic floor is with an exercise called "the tug of love." You'll need a drilled yoni egg that is stringed for this one. Insert your yoni egg and kegel it up as high as you can (use your fingers to push her up if needed); try and get her as close to your cervix as you can. Once your yoni egg is up there, gently tug the string like your going to remove the egg, but don't pull it out. While pulling the string, use your yoni muscles to keep the yoni egg inside, like your playing tug of war. If you don't have a drilled egg you can do the same exercise, but instead of tugging the string you'll use your muscles to push the egg out; once you feel it at the opening of your yoni, suck it back in. Repeat for 5-10 sets and for no more than 5 minutes at a time. Allow your yoni to rest in between sets. The relaxation component is very important for strength building.

Practicing with a Yoni Egg not only helps tighten the vaginal walls; it also awakens the tissues, organs, and muscles, promotes new nerve growth, and increases overall sensitivity. Your yoni egg will literally massage the intimate pressure-points from the inside, from top all the way down. This will allow you to experience pleasure you didn’t even know was possible. Be prepared to experience new kinds of orgasms. If you’ve never had a vaginal orgasm before, diligent practice can change this and open up entirely new types of sensation and pleasure.


4. Connecting spiritually with your Yoni Egg
​Get to know your yoni closely. Start developing a loving relationship with your yoni, your entire body, and ultimately yourself. Allow this process to be intuitive and go with the flow. If that means sleeping near or with your egg, great! Perhaps wear it in your bra for a few days. Or simply wear your egg and do nothing. Just it it be. By doing this you are infusing your own energy into the yoni crystal. You can also sing to your egg and/or speak positive affirmations to your egg and keep it near you. 

 

5. Womb meditating for manifesting
​Almost every living being on earth has roots in the womb, making the womb the logical domain for a woman's power source. Besides creating life, our wombs also give birth to new ideas, projects, businesses, and much more! The power and magic that women hold in their womb space is unlike anything out there. 

We like to start by raising the vibration or frequency of the yoni egg by infusing your goals and desires into her. Hold your yoni egg over your thrid eye or heart chakra and release a deep and low humming sound, Huuummmmmmmmmm. Think of whatever is it you are trying to manifest while humming into your yoni egg. Let's say your trying to manifest a new home. Picture this home, visualize yourself living in this home while humming into your yoni egg. Doing this is literally storing these desired intentions directly into your yoni crystal. Do this for 1-2 minutes. 

Sit or lay in silence or with relaxing background music playing. Start to yoni breathe or simply breathe in and out of your womb space. With each breathe, concentrate your energy to your yoni egg/womb space and visualize your yoni egg releasing what your manifesting (remember you just infused her with these intentions) out into your womb and beyond like rays of light. Picture what your manifesting, feel it, believe it to be true. 

Do this for however long like you. Mini sessions are just as effective as longer sessions. The key is consistency, ladies.
