So it’s old news that there’s some kind of connection between yoga and sex, and it’s an easy marketing target (remember that whole Better Sex Through Yoga craze a few years ago?).
But I was flipping through the latest issue of Bust and came across an article (not available online) on new pop-fitness “research” pointing to the possibility of the coregasm – an orgasm experienced during core-strengthening exercises, including ab work, pilates and, of course, yoga.
Apparently, the coregasm concept is something that Men’s Health magazine picked up on earlier this year, and the Women’s Health website responded to it (with a handy coregasm workout). And the OmGym – “suspension yoga” – creators had already tapped into this a while ago, designing a suspension yoga coregasm workout to “awaken the inner Love Goddess” and getting featured on The Doctors TV show (see vid below).
It’s possible that those feelings of bliss and oneness (not to mention shortness of breath) that we’ve experienced during our yoga practice might be more than we thought. And perhaps Om may no longer be the only “big O” in yoga…
Has anyone out there experienced a coregasm during yoga? Dare to share your thoughts in the comments section!
