Yoni egg, jade egg, or love egg â€?are names for a beautiful semiprecious stone carved into an egg shape and polished to be worn inside the vagina.
It is estimated that women have been practicing with stone eggs for over 5,000 years. Empresses and concubines of the Royal Palace of China used eggs carved out of jade to access sexual power, awaken the sensuality and maintain amazing health into their old age. Up until recently, this ancient, secret practice was only available to members of the royal family, and to select Taoist practitioners.
“Yoniâ€?is a Sanskrit word for the female genitalia that means “sacred space.â€?Its symbol has been worshiped in Eastern cultures since ancient times for bestowing life, creativity, and love. We will be using the term “yoniâ€?to bring appreciation and acknowledgment â€?so often lacking in Western culture â€?to the creative power this magical part of the female body holds.
How to Practice With a Yoni Egg? Simple Kegel exercises are the foundation of the Yoni Egg practice. Doing Kegels is already great. Doing them with a Yoni Egg is like doing curls with a dumbbell instead of just flexing your biceps.
As you become more advanced, you can learn to manipulate the egg by moving different muscle groups inside your yoni! This is usually referred to as Pompoir or “Vaginal Kung Fu.â€?How do you like that?
Note: As with every exercise routine, regular practice is much better than sporadic practice. Sporadic practice is better than no practice at all. Practicing with intention and enjoyment, as opposed to just going through the mechanical motions, will make a world of difference. The best thing you can do when practicing with your Yoni Egg makes it into a ritual of self-love and self-care. Set aside some time that’s just for you and start with a gentle breast massage. The more love you give to yourself and your body, the more love you will have to share with others.
Included with your Yoni Egg order are a printed practice guide and a complimentary link to a web page with in-depth instructions for Yoni Egg practices and exercises.
Sleeping with the egg is another way you can ease into your routine and start benefiting from its properties. Your yoni will play with the egg and the crystal will do its healing work while you rest.
Note: While practicing yoni egg exercises it is important to remember to focus on relaxation after contraction, melting, and relaxing your pelvic floor. The goal is to increase suppleness while developing muscle strength. Think about it is similar to yoga, which involves a combination of straining and stretching, tension, and relaxation.
