Yoni Eggs

What is the history of the Yoni Egg?

 

Over 5000 years ago, the Ancient Chinese civilization regarded the sexual organs as the centre of one’s health. If this area of your body was active and healthy, your entire body was active and healthy.

The Chinese considered the Yoni to be the place from which one can channel their ‘chi’ (life force energy) to their higher Chakras (energy centers in the body) in the aim of enlightenment. The process was thought to transmute their sexual energy into higher spiritual energy thus allowing them to get closer to God and feel happier, healthier and full of vitality.

The Jade Egg practice is an ancient Taoist practice and dates back to Imperial China when it was kept a secret by the Empress in the Royal Palace. The Queen and her concubines practiced using the Jade Egg to strengthen the power of their vaginas not only to impress the King sexually but also to heighten their spirituality and transform & transmute their Chi. This brought them more peace, health, youth and essentially helped them live for longer.

The Jade Egg practice was only taught to the most privileged women of the royal courts. So how lucky are we to have access to such ancient techniques and be able to do anytime, anywhere!?

Do I Chose Medium or Large? Drilled or Undrilled?

 

If you’re a beginner we suggest you start with a medium, drilled yoni egg as this will typically fit most women. A drilled yoni egg is easy to remove as you can tie through dental floss (un-waxed/un-minted).

If you have experienced childbirth, we suggest you starting with the large sized egg and then gradually making your way down to a medium. If this is the case, we also sell a set of three different sizes.

A drilled egg is ideal for easy removal (using floss to pull the egg out, as if you would a tampon). It’s easy to clean – simply blow through the drilled hole or flush through warm water with apple cider vinegar or organic soap.

A non-drilled egg, however, is cleaner as you don’t have to clean through the drilled hole. A non-drilled egg simply means you have to ‘birth’ the egg naturally, which is simple.

What are Yoni Eggs?

 

Yoni, in the Indian Sanskrit language, means “Sacred Temple” and refers to a woman’s vagina. In my humble opinion, this is a far more beautiful word to use compared to vagina, which literally means “sheath for a mans sword”.

A yoni egg is an egg-shaped stone or crystal used to insert inside the yoni to strengthen and tone the entire pelvic region – the pelvic floor muscles, the lower abdomen, the urogenital diaphragms and even the lower back.

It works as a weight resistance tool to use whilst doing your “Kegel exercises”, which are pelvic floor pulses or contractions all women should do, especially after childbirth. There is plenty of research now to suggest that it’s best to use a weight for doing your Kegels, rather than squeezing the walls of the vagina together with no weight resistance at all.

Many women are cut off from their pleasure and sexuality and therefore their power. Yoni eggs reconnect you to your womb, your creation center, create sexual and sacral healing and awaken your lifeforce.

BENEFITS OF USING A YONI EGG:

 

  • Increases connection with the Yoni (so many women are “cut off” from the waist down)
  • Increases sensation during sex / self pleasure
  • Revitalises nerve-endings in the vagina
  • Improves overall life-force energy or “chi” in the body
  • Boosts sexual energy levels and awakens the libido
  • Helps train the vagina for childbirth and recover the muscles post-childbirth
  • Increases wetness and lubrication (yes, yes, YES!)
  • Helps to prevent prolapse whereby the pelvic organs collapse into the vagina due to atrophy and non-use.
  • Relieves incontinence (weak bladder/accidentally peeing)
  • Balances hormones by increasing blood flow to the area, which contribute to youthfulness
  • Heightens orgasmic potential and able to access a variety of orgasms
  • Helps to stay grounded in body and brings awareness to the yoni, womb and entire pelvic band
  • Improves overall health, happiness and wellness – physically and spiritually – as the yoni egg focuses on the place in the body with the most Chi (life force energy).

 

 

WAYS TO USE YOUR EGG

 

1. The first is the easiest, simply insert your yoni egg and wear it around the house. This allows you to bring awareness to your yoni space and to train and strengthen the pelvic floor. Start with 5 minutes, eventually working your way up to 20 minutes at a time. Be careful not to overdo your practice. When inserting lie on your back or come into a squat. Take a moment to breathe deep and center yourself before insertion. Be gentle and go slow, do not force it.

 

2. Practice gentle yoga moves in combinations with wearing your yoni egg. Moving your body while wearing the egg helps you to ground and facilitates a deeper connection with your sacral space. Recommended Poses: Cat and Cow, Downward Facing Dog, Butterfly Pose, and Bridge Lifts. Move in sensual, fluid ways to rise your sexual energy.  Roll your hips, thrust in rhythm with your breath and in unison with squeezing the egg.

 

3. Utilizing your breath and visualization create a transformational kegel practice. You can begin by simply holding your egg in meditation, I owned my first egg for up to a year before I got the courage to insert it. Before insertion bring your egg to your heart and set an intention. Center your self and tune-in. Next sit in silent meditation, inhale deeply and squeeze the egg, on your exhale full release your contraction. It is important to fully release, so as not to create more tension. I was once taught by Jade Egg Teacher Tara O*, to imagine your pelvic floor is a flower fully unfurling as it softens. Visualize your body igniting with fire as you inhale and your muscles relaxing into the warm as you exhale. Life the pelvic floor Feel these movements radiate all the way up into your lower belly. ( *I highly recommend the Jade Egg Academy by Tara O)
