Kegels

KEGEL exercises are prescribed by doctors and therapists to help with Urinary and Bowel Incontinence, Weak/Loose Vaginal Muscles, Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, and Recovery from Child Birth and Hysterectomy.

Normally, doctors teach a person how to identify pelvic muscles (pubococcygeus or PC muscles) by stopping the flow of urine because these are the muscles that are activated to stop the flow of urine.

If you do KEGEL exercises without weight or resistance it will take several months to years to see results but by adding weight-based resistance you can see results within 1-3 months.

By using UPTD and FPTD women can have full control on their vaginal muscles and men can have full control on their erection and ejaculation.

Pelvic floor muscles (PC muscles) are located in your genital region. They stretch from the sacrum to the pubic bone covering your anus, perineum and genitals forming a hammock. These muscles provide support for the uterus, bladder, bowel (assist in stopping the flow of urine and bowel movements) and genitals (vagina in a woman and penis in a man). KEGEL exercises are also very helpful in increasing physical stimulation during intercourse.

In yoga, the most important bandha (co-activation of muscles) is the MULA BANDHA (root lock) and by doing KEGEL exercises you can intensify the MULA BANDHA.
