If you've ever struck a pose during a yoga class and thought, "Wow, I could have sex like this," you're not alone. All those ass-in-the-air, lady-parts-on-display postures can make you feel like you’re practicing the Kama Sutra rather than yoga.

That got us thinking...could some of those classic yoga poses actually work as sex positions? It's possible! Read on to see the postures that could double as sex moves. They might put you in touch with your body in more ways than one. Namaste.

Puppy Dog Stretch

Human leg, Shoulder, Elbow, Sportswear, Wrist, Joint, Waist, Exercise, Knee, Thigh,

Beth Bischoff

Sounds adorable, right? Well, this seemingly innocent pose could make a G-spot-stimulating stretch that we would do over and over again. You game?

Happy Baby

Human leg, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Joint, Knee, Exercise, Waist, Sitting, Thigh,

Beth Bischoff

Anyone else think it's weird that the sexiest poses are named after innocent and adorable things? That being said, going spread eagle on our backs and grabbing our feet while getting down definitely makes us happy, baby.

(Tone up, beat stress, and feel great with Rodale's new With Yoga DVD.)


Arm, Finger, Elbow, Human leg, Shoulder, Wrist, Sportswear, Hand, Joint, Standing,

If you've ever conquered a tough yoga pose and immediately thought, "I did it! Nos, how can I work this impressive pose into my sex life?" you're totally normal, and we like the way you think. Also, you get bonus points if your guy’s thrusting doesn’t interfere with your balance.

Half Dog at the Wall

Shoulder, Elbow, Human leg, Wrist, Joint, Standing, Waist, Knee, Active pants, Thigh,

Beth Bischoff

Also known as the bend-over-and-take-it-at-the-wall posture. This is definitely a pose worth trying in the shower

Reclined Big Toe

Human leg, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Joint, Sportswear, Knee, Exercise, Waist, Thigh,


You might start out doing this pose to clear the clutter in your head and restore a sense of calm to achieve a mind and body balance, but when the stretch is over, your main objective to get your leg over his shoulder mid-sex. #goals

Downward Facing Dog

Human leg, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Joint, Sportswear, Waist, Exercise, Active pants, Knee,

Beth Bischoff

Can you really push back into down dog without immediately feeling like you’re about to take it from behind? Yeah, didn't think so. 

Standing Split

Human leg, Shoulder, Elbow, Joint, Wrist, Waist, Knee, Thigh, Teal, Athletic dance move,

Beth Bischoff

If you have the flexibility to bend over, put nose to knee, and lift your other leg at a 180-degree angle, we salute you. If we had that skill, we’d definitely use it to have the craziest sex ever. Until then, it's a big motivator to sign up for class.
