Increasingly, research shows that practicing yoga regularly can help ward off and even treat a number of health conditions. From diabetes, hypertension, PCOD, cardiovascular issues, and even erectile dysfunction (ED) can be managed through yoga.

If your partner is just starting out with yoga or has never tried it, we recommend that he takes it slow. He can take his time, and ease into the poses bringing awareness to his breath. Beginners to the practice are advised to practice under the guided supervision of a trained teacher. Only a qualified expert can help your partner out in arriving at the perfect alignment and form, ensuring that he receives the maximum benefit from the practice.

Your partner can practice yoga regularly for relaxation, flexibility, and balance. These yoga asanas are suggested specifically to deal with erectile dysfunction. It includes some basic poses like vajrasana, and asanas like brahmacharya for more seasoned practitioners.

1. Pranayama

Kapalbhati (bellow breathing)
