What is YoniYoga® (or Yoga for the Vagina?)
YogaBellies founder Cheryl, came across the ancient Chinese practice of using Yoni (or Jade) eggs to literally heal the body from inside out while living in Singapore. This 5,000 year old practice was once the closely guarded secret of the royal Chinese concubines, which not only tightened the pelvic floor and improved sexual health, vitality and intensity of orgasms, but provided a myriad of other benefits for the practitioners. A natural face lift, longevity, curing incontinence, improved lubrication, higher levels of fertility and decreased menstrual cramps are some of the proposed benefits of this practice.
Realizing the immense benefits through her own practice, Cheryl combined her yoga practice with the use of the Yoni Egg to further the benefits and to create a complete spiritual and physical practice, accessible to all women. Thus created YoniYoga® by YogaBellies
“We want to empower women to take back their sexual power and embrace their femininity and their sexuality,” says Cheryl MacDonald when asked about the motivation for offering YoniYoga® classes. She added that YoniYoga® is the second revolution in light of the Meetoo Movement.
“YoniYoga® is about being comfortable in your own body. We’ve been taught to be ashamed or embarrassed by our own reproductive organs and our physical and sensual needs as a woman. Not only can a YoniYoga® practice help with this, it’s a deeply healing practice. Women who have suffered traumatic childbirth or miscarriage or even sexual assault can truly heal by working through these emotions.
