Dr. Ava Cadell created Sexycises as a way for couples to connect more physically, as it is the quickest way to rebuild intimacy, heal negative emotions and rekindle passion for a deeper loving relationship that she has witnessed in her private practice.
“These activities release oxytocin, the bonding hormone, which cultivates gratitude for one another, manifesting in romance and more intimacy… The success that couples achieve connecting emotionally through physical touch was my inspiration for creating Yin Yang Yoga, as a rewarding solution for those top relationship issues. I wanted to create a couples practice that blends three popular keys to wellbeing: yoga, intimacy and fitness (YIF – not to be confused with the practice of dressing up as fuzzy animals!) Many couples are seeking guidance and support on their journey to find more romance and deeper intimacy, but they don’t want it to be hard work. And couples often take sex way too seriously, which can result in a lack of interest in sexual activity altogether. What they need is to have sexy fun together!”, says Dr. Ava Cadell.
Sexycises by Sexperts: Yin Yang Yoga for Intimacy presents sexy, sensual poses designed to deepen trust, intimacy and sexual connection between lovers, with a wide variety of styles from gentle and relaxing to gravity defying acrobatic challenges.
Sex up your summer with a new sizzling practice you can enjoy with your partner and turn up the heat!
