Yoni Eggs & Jade Eggs
How to insert:
Inserting your yoni egg is simple and fun. We recommend inserting with the tip pointing down, however, either way is perfectly fine. Inserting a yoni egg is just like inserting a tampon with no applicator. Some yoni eggs have a drilled hole so you can add string for easy retrieval, or to add a weight for vaginal weightlifting (pictured below). Don't worry, your yoni egg can't get stuck! It can only go as far as your cervix, which acts as a wall, keeping her with in the vaginal canal only. Check out our illustration below which show just how it's done.We do not sell weights. Get creative, find something around the house!
How to use:
Once your yoni egg is in, there are a few different way to use her.
The perfect Kegel: Doing your kegels correctly is vital when working with your yoni/jade egg. You first want to make sure you are contracting the correct muscles, to do so, contract your pelvic muscles without flexing your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Your pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock that hold all your womb parts up and in place. If you are having a hard time trying to finding your kegel muscles, try laying on your back or try using the restroom and stopping your urine midstream. Make sure not to hold your breath, you should be able to breathe through your contractions. Once you have identified the pelvic floor muscles your ready to start kegeling!
- The basic: Start by contracting and hold for 5 seconds then relax. Once you are able to hold for 5 seconds try longer intervals of 10-15 seconds. Repeat contractions for 5 minutes a session.
- The quickie: Contract and hold for 1 second then relax. Continue the 1 second intervals for 5 minute sessions.
- Combine the the basic and quickie for an advanced 5-10 minute workout.
*Make sure to have your yoni egg or jade egg in for the optimal workout!
Yoni Yoga: A connection of the physical, mental and spiritual exercises with an emphases on the pelvic floor. Use your yoni egg while contracting and releasing your pelvic floor muscles at the same time you practice pelvis focused yoga moves. During each yoga pose, concentrate on deep controlled breathing while making a conscious connection with your womb space. Yoni Yoga is used to strengthen, heal and promote a healthy womb space for every stage of womanhood.
Yoni Tucks: Practicing yoni egg kegels while in the pelvic tuck position. The pelvic tuck position is commonly used durning the Barre routine. Tucking during each movement will allow more focus on the pelvic floor and giving you a more advanced work out. A proper Tuck is done by standing shoulder width apart, slightly bending your knees, drop your tail bone and tuck your behind in. Make sure your upper body stays straight. Once you have the tuck position engaged, do tiny pulses engaging your tuck while contracting your kegels. This is an advanced exercise, make sure you have mastered the perfect kegel before trying the Yoni Tuck.
Vaginal weight lifting: The process of vaginal weight lifting is the exact same concept of doing your kegel exercises, except you have added weight/resistance. Attach the weight to your yoni egg with a heavy-duty string like hemp, or dental floss. Stand with feet shoulder width apart, insert your yoni egg and hold on to the weight with your hand until the yoni egg is tucked away inside of you. Next, gently release the weight so it's hanging in between your legs. Start your kegel contractions by lifting and squeezing your pelvic floor, use your vagina, perineum and anus at the same time.
- Do not use heavy weights as it could strain your pelvic floor muscles. We recommend using another yoni egg as a weight or something no more than 5oz.
How to Remove:
Removing your yoni/jade egg is simple; get into a deep squat position and push out with your vaginal muscles. If needed, you may use your fingers to scoop the yoni egg out or try a little jump up and down. For string users, give it a gentle tug (think removing a tampon and allow her to glide out slowly and easily).
