Embodying Your Sacred Portal: Yoni Eggs

In a world where we live disconnected from our wombs, the sacred space that holds the capacity for life and creation, we often forget the power contained in our bodies. As women, or people with wombs, we have been conditioned from every angle to forget this. Our bodies have been objectified, taken advantage of, victimized, minimized, and torn apart. 


We’ve been taught to disregard the abilities that lie within us. To wander through life living in floating heads, forgetting that they are attached to bodies. To limbs that move and weave for us. To feet that carry us through life. To a core that supports and holds us. To organs that vitalize and propel us, pumping life through our beings. In a culture of disconnection, the secret lies inside us. Our ability to reach in and find the depths of our soul that moves through every one of our pores. 


An integral part of tapping into this space, the space within us, is rediscovering, reaffirming, and deepening the connection to our yonis. Whether or not you choose to birth children, this space represents a sacred portal. Our ability to breathe life into existence. This could be a creative endeavor, a relationship, a community, or a new human. When diving into self care, we consider our diets, facials, massage, acupuncture- all incredible tools- but we often forget that there’s more to us. Part of living a healthy, integrated life, is connecting to this sacred portal. 


As more and more people are awakening to this, we’re now seeing a rise in popularity in self care tools focusing on the vagina. Vaginal steaming, crystal wands, and of course- yoni eggs.


Yoni eggs developed in ancient China as a Taoist tool for strengthening the vagina. Taoism emphasizes living in accordance with nature, and the natural flow of life. It is believed that this practice was held secret by the Queen and her concubines in The Royal Palace of China. The revelation of this sacred practice has given countless womb-holders a key to their ability to unlocking their Chi, and their capacity for creation and abundance.


The yoni has the ability to transmute Chi, or life force energy. The more we understand the potential for connection and vitality within this space, the deeper our connection with source becomes.


While yoni eggs come in a variety of stones, in the beginning of your journey with them, it is recommended to go with Jade. Our Yoni Eggs (shop here) are made from 100% Nephrite Canadian Jade that will hold you in your practice in a gentle and nourishing way.

You then may move onto Obsidian. This volcanic glass holds the power of the Earth’s core within a small sphere. It allows you to root back into your own root, the chakra center that holds stability, safety, and security. It’s detoxifying nature will clear away blocks that are you keeping you from remembering the security within your being.

The next step is to call on the abilities of rose quartz. This ethereal stone contains the power of unconditional love. Love that fills up the places that you have made space for as you’ve cleared yourself of past pains. 


Yoni eggs give us a tool to tap into the esoteric, on a very real level. Much like using crystals for meditation, yoni eggs give us a tangible way to feel things that often go unfelt. We use the power of the Earth’s creations to get back in touch with our own power of creation. This potent practice brings us back into our bodies, and back into the physical realm that so many of us have checked out of. 


You may be asking yourself if Yoni Eggs are right for you. These powerful stones have the ability to heal us from many of the pains we store in our wombs. They can help to break up scar tissue, and strengthen the pelvic floor. If you are preparing to conceive, or may want to conceive at some point, they can aid you in touching back into your ability to produce life.

The incredible act of breaking through past and stored traumas is often enough to clear the path of fertility. Maybe you have experienced some sort of birth trauma, physically and/or emotionally. Using Yoni Eggs in the postpartum period can help to heal the pelvic floor, and make you feel like your body is yours again. Many people “numb out” as a result of sexual trauma. Your practice can help to thaw any areas that have become frozen. They help to clear your portal of past lovers, and other people’s energy that you no longer want stored in you. They allow you to deepen your connection with your sexuality, to find a more orgasmic, more ecstatic way of living.


While you can find many techniques and meditations using your Yoni egg (in fact we include a complimentary mediation when you purchase one through Mahina), it is an intuitive journey. We encourage you to explore, to try different approaches. While we must heal as a collective, it starts with the individual.

Your healing journey is yours to explore.

Your womb is yours to awaken.

Your Yoni is yours to embody.

The Magic of The Steam: The Sacred Practice of Yoni Steaming

Yoni Steaming. If you’re hip in the world of self care and womb wellness- you’ve probably heard of it. Maybe you haven’t. Either way, we’re here to get down and steamy. To answer some common questions, and see just what the deal is with this incredible practice. If you aren’t a devotee yet, you’ll surely be converted after just one session of what some call “A hug for your vagina.”


While it may seem like a new trend in the world of wellness, yoni steaming is a practice that goes back from ancient Mayan healers and midwives performing bajos to Korean healers with the practice of Chai-Yok.


Yoni or vaginal steaming gives us the chance to dive into the portal of the divine. To spend time with an area so many of us neglect outside of sex and birth. To purify and clear away the generations of heaviness we feel in our wombs. To deepen the intimacy and connection we have with ourselves, so that we can extend it out to the world around us.


Heat and warmth are a necessary part of our healing in many ways. In many traditional systems of medicine such as Ayurveda and Chinese medicine, cold equals stagnation. Heat allows things to move through. This is especially true in regards to our reproductive cycle and postpartum. Steam allows the sensitive tissues of the yoni to gently open up, while the medicinal benefits of the herbs slowly wrap around your womb, working their magic. 


The benefits of yoni steaming are endless. It helps support people through the postpartum time, fertility issues, those with fibroids, or menstrual, bacterial and hormonal imbalances. Yoni steaming helps to regulate periods, as well as ease bloating and cramping. This practice increases sensitivity, improves your sex life, and helps to heal trauma we carry in our second chakra- which is the seat of our fertitlity, abundance and creation. 


To set up your yoni steaming area, you will first need a seat. Mahina sells beautiful, wooden seats- lovingly handmade on the island of Hawai’i. Get one for yourself hereSimply place your seat over a 5 gallon painters bucket, with a heat resistant safe bowl to hold your steamy mixture. Many people simply put a pot (reserved for steaming) into their toilet- a built in v-steam seat! For a serious tush workout you can just hover over your pot sans seat. Whatever your option, you may choose to line your seat with a towel to keep from burning your sensitive tissues.


Now for the steam itself. You can use our blessed, all organic, wildcrafted, yoni steam herbal blend by ordering online. We always encourage fresh herbs if you have them available. By creating an experience around cultivating and tenderly picking your herbs, you create a ritual around your connection with the land, and the land within you. 


If you choose to create your own mixture, here are some common herbs to pick from:


Calendula: Has anti inflammatory properties, helps to aid in the healing of scar tissue, vaginal tears, and hemorrhoids, making it great for postpartum. 


Lavender: Known for its incredible calming properties, this peaceful plant helps to regulate the menstrual cycle.


Rosemary: Another powerful plant packed with antimicrobial abilities. Rosemary helps to inhibit yeast growth and stimulate menstruation.


Mugwort: With its wonderful antifungal abilities, mugwort is a great all around addition to your herbal blend. It also helps to balance female hormones.


Basil: This beautiful botanical has been shown to help ease painful periods. It aims to minimize cramps, PMS, and other issues.


Please do not use essential oils in your steam, as they are too concentrated for the delicate tissues of the vagina.


Make sure to allow your to herbs steep long enough to fully reap the benefits. About 5 minutes in boiling water, and an additional 10 with the lid covered and the heat off. Wave your hand over the mixture to make sure it isn’t too hot before taking your seat.


Like many self care practices, we urge you to create a ritual around your yoni steam. Start by setting the space- clearing the area, lighting candles, incense or using aromatherapy, dim the lights, and breathe deeply to ground down into your body. Cover you feet and body to keep the warmth inside- especially in the postpartum time.


Soak in the magical medicine you have created for yourself for 20-35 minutes, you may need to swap out the water mid-steam if it loses too much of its heat. You can put on calming music, a guided meditation, or simply sit in quiet- taking it all in. 


During this deep practice, you may have hidden things coming up. Allow it to move through you, tears, moans- whatever it maybe. Remember that the only way out is through. Feel it, digest it, and let it pass.


Yoni steaming is not recommended for those are currently pregnant, have an iud, have open wounds, or are currently menstruating- although it is great in the week leading up to your period. If you are steaming postpartum, wait about 5 days or if you had a c-section 6 weeks.

How to have a Healthy, Luscious and Pleasured Yoni

Yoni is a sacred, sanskrit word that translates to “source of all life” or “sacred space” referring to a woman’s holy grail, aka vagina, between her legs. It is of utmost importance that we properly take care of our yoni.


Our sexual energy is power source and our pleasure is our gateway into the universe.


Pleasure has many forms. Pleasure is being in the company of a loved one, pleasure is dark chocolate melting on your tongue, pleasure is cuddles with your pup, pleasure is soaking in the sun’s rays and pleasure is getting lost and wild in nature.


Pleasure is a way that we move through life.


When we bring our yoni into balance, her potential for pleasure amplifies. Imagine cleaning out a dirty hose, or removing the kinks, this would lead to more water pressure. More water pressure is your juices flowing freely and ecstatically!


Below are my cherished tricks to amp up your pleasure portal with holistic self-care practices. Because let’s face it – you, yes YOU, deserve it!


Repeat after me, “Pleasure is my birthright.”

Again, “Pleasure is my birthright.”

And one more time, “Pleasure is my birthright!”


Ok, now you’re ready :).



This is one of my absolute favorite practices, especially living in the hot, humid tropics. Cucumbers are hydrating, ph balancing, alkalizing and anti-microbial. They are easy to find and extremely effective.


Pick a local, organic cucumber of medium size and width (play how you wish – the mini cucs are fun and easy too). Whatever size you chose, peel the skin. Take some time and space to yourself where you can really offer this practice as a self-devotion ritual.


Light a candle, put on some soft music, lock your door and prepare your temple.


I always begin with bringing one hand to my heart and one to my yoni/womb and connecting the two with my breath and intention.


Once you are ready, slowly bring the cucumber to your yoni lips and gently guide it in.


One of the great benefits of this practice is it naturally massages the vaginal canal while gently exfoliating off dead skin.


Slowly and with presence, bring the cucumber in and out of yoni while slightly rotating, it should feel cool and refreshing.


If at any point there is pain or discomfort, stop, check in and breathe.


I recommend this practice once or twice a week especially if there is any heat, yeast, bacterial imbalance or irritation from friction. It’s also a fantastic way to instantly bring down the body temperature!



2. Yoni Blossom Wand

This magical wand is not a luxury, rather a healing medicine! She is an herbal clay wand, antimicrobial and antifungal, that instantly exfoliates, detoxifies and tightens the vaginal canal.


As we cleanse out the yoni, things will come up – old lovers, traumas, trapped memories and emotions, ect. Our womb is our chalice, everything in our life creates a snapshot that is instantly stored in our sacred center. For this reason, it is important to leave time for emotional release and integration when using these tools and practices.


If you’ve ever been on hormonal birth control or anti-biotics, suffered from candida, bacterial infection, yeast infection or recurrent UTI, Yoni Blossom Wand will be your best friend! As your vaginal canal begins to rebalance herself, your yoni will transform into a sweet succulent nectar blossom! Say goodbye to itching, burning, yeasty, uncomfortable, inflamed, and insecure yoni blues!


Take her slowly and consciously, light candles, play soft music and ask consent with your yoni beforehand.

3. Let her Breathe!

Organic cotton undies is the way to go! It is a breathable material that also absorbs moisture. Wearing organic cotton undies is an easy way to keep your yoni breathing, dry and held in softness. Best to avoid tight, latex, and non-breathable materials for your sweet sister down below. This causes blood flow restriction, excess heat, moisture, and can trap bacteria that leads to infection.


There are some epicly awesome sustainable brands available that you can sport in style.


I prefer and recommend natural-made loose, flowing clothing with no panties as much as possible. Your yoni needs to breath and it’s amazingly sensational to feel the fresh wind blowing on her. Especially if you are following the above protocols for alkalizing and detoxifying your yoni, you will notice no more heavy discharge which allows for a confident panty-free experience!


It is especially important that you allow your yoni space to breath freely overnight. If you live in a cold climate, experiment with organic cotton loose fitting pj’s or a sexy nighty.



Yoni Steaming is an ancient ritual, for healing and awakening of the entire pelvic bowl. Regular yoni steam treatments stimulate and clean out the lymph system, expel toxins and aid in cleansing the uterine lining of membrane buildup. It will also assist in thinning excess mucus leaving behind only vital, fertile sweet tasting and smelling fluids.


Steaming your yoni also increases circulation which in turn amplifies your sex life by increasing sensitivity and receptivity to touch and stimulation.


Creating a home yoni steam ritual is an easy way to honor your holy temple each and every week! You will feel more grounded, empowered, balanced and an overall sense of vitality from this deep self-care practice. Yoni steaming is not only a physical practice, it works on an energetic and psychic level as well.


It is truly inside out healing.


For a detailed guide, benefits and to purchase your very own home yoni steam spa set: Journey Here.




Open your legs and let the Light in, literally! This is one of the most ancient and potent tools for awakening energies in the yoni while giving her a sweet, warm sun soak. Your yoni lips (labia) will absolutely adore the vitamin D and it has been shown to actually boost the immune system and help alleviate yeast.


In the 1930s, before antibiotics, sunlight therapy (heliotherapy) was favored by the medical community and was proven to be the most successful treatment for infectious diseases.  The sun’s rays are deeply healing and also extremely activating. This practice invites and calls in the golden glow of life-force vitality into your whole being.


For a detailed guide on Yoni Sunning: Journey Here



Just like a full body massage, a yoni and pelvic floor massage has many amazing benefits. The yoni is no different from the rest of the body in the way that she stores tension, memories and trauma. Due to her extremely sensitive nature, she is more susceptible to store unhealed emotions of the past and present. Most diseases, imbalances, sexual shame and inability to experience joy and pleasure steams from build up and/or blockages in the yoni and pelvic bowl.


A compassionate and intentional massage will assist in unlocking these holdings, freeing you to experience more of who you Truly are.


Your yoni has a “voice” of her own. She has secrets to share, ancient remembrance, soul-filled guidance, deep feminine wisdom and emotions and pain to release. By giving her this Gift of presence and loving touch, you will begin to tune into and hear what she is yearning to tell you. You will become your own guide and Guru.


Always start with consent and intention.


Remember- the slower you enter, the deeper you go.

Start with light touch, moving and stimulating the lymph system.


You can do this solo or with a partner you trust, safety is Key!  


A dear sister of mine always says “the yoni is shy, you have to open all other channels first before she is ready” – this is especially true if there is any sexual trauma. The most important thing here is to relax and follow your breath, only go as far and deep as you feel safe to do so and know you can always come back.


Leave lots of space for emotional release and integration. This is a primary part of this practice that often gets left behind. It’s nice to work the entire pelvic girdle, thighs (inner and outer), buttock, and womb area before going inside.


I also recommend some focus on jaw, neck and craniosacral release to assist in total surrender. Approach your body holistically, every part of it has a unique role and essence to discover. Grab your favorite essential oil, dilute into coco oil, flip on some juicy tunes and enjoy your sacred self!

Feel welcomed to reach out with further questions, to share discoveries or to book a private session and go deeper into any of the feminine landscapes.


Blessings Beautiful Angel.

Cheers to your yum yum yoni!! xx


In gratitude,

A Holistic Guide To Heal Yoni Yeast

Yoni (Sanskrit — योनि ): womb; sacred space; vagina.

Your yoni is an intricate, dynamic system – a galactic universe. She has her own pH, microbiome, ecosystem, delicate hormonal dance and built-in security to assist in maintaining a healthy equilibrium. Your yoni naturally wants to be in balance, and will clearly let you know when something/someone is throwing her out of whack.  She has a voice and speaks to us in symptoms. The more out of balance one becomes, the ‘louder’ the symptoms will get until they are unavoidable. If we learn to listen to her gentle guidance, we become a magnet for living a joyful, sensual, creative and abundant life! Signs she’s not happy – UTI, yeast infection, rash, smell, PMS, cysts, and the list goes on.

One of the most important holistic self-care tools is deep listening. Allowing space, stillness and introspection: journaling, meditating, massaging, and seeking guidance from your yoni. It may seem woo-woo, or so easy it couldn’t possibly work. My promise is the more you love and devote to your yoni, the more your yoni will be the juicy, self-cleansing, orgasmic powerhouse that you desire!

Make sex sacred! Every person that has entered your yoni will energetically leave an imprint for up to 7 years! Not only that, if your partner is carrying any yeast or imbalances of their own, it can throw off the pH of your yoni. Yes, that means the diet and lifestyle of your loved ones also greatly affects you. Sex can be conscious, loving, with full consent, holy and divinely delicious. It should never be forced, out of guilt, a drunken blur, disrespectful, pushy or with any thoughts of ‘I know I shouldn’t.’  

Your yoni is your temple, treat her as such!

Emphasize whole foods and hydration. There is an amazing link between our mouth and our yoni, both physically and vibrationally. If your gut flora is overly acidic, this will greatly affect your yoni flora. If you’re healing from a more stubborn yeast/candida infection it’s best to avoid all sugar, alcohol and inflammatory foods. Incorporate nutrient rich greens, spirulina/chlorella and turmeric. Remember, holistic means the whole body working together, not just treating one symptom in one area of the body.



  1. Peel a garlic clove and insert directly into the yoni 3 nights in a row (you will most likely have garlic breath – remember the yoni and mouth connection!). Garlic is nature’s antibiotic and will work with you to fight off the yeast overgrowth.


  1. Place a few drops of oregano oil (make sure you use a high quality oil) into purified or fresh spring water and drink every couple hours. Oregano oil is astringent and drying with anti-microbial properties; it will soak up an internal damp condition and help clear yeast in your gut.


  1. Peel an organic cucumber and insert vaginally for relief. Cucumbers are cooling, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and will pull out heat.  You can use the cucumber as much as desired, however at least 2-3 times a week is most beneficial.


  1. Insert organic coconut oil directly into the yoni after solidifying in the fridge. Be sure to put a towel under you to keep your sheets from getting oily. This is great to nourish and help re-lubricate the yoni after the 3 nights of garlic. The cooling benefit of the coconut oil will also offer soothing relief. Coconut oil is also an antimicrobial and anti-fungal powerhouse. You can add a little turmeric powder to help draw the yeast out. A light yoni massage will help the oil absorb plus offer some healing touch. You can also use sesame oil or olive oil.


  1. Take a good oral probiotic. See what’s at your local natural food store. It’s best to take one with different strains. I love Garden of Life, and they have a few different options. You can also insert the probiotic vaginally overnight after the garlic treatment. If you chose this method, be sure to get one that is not encapsulated.


As with anything, ask your body, and never do anything that doesn’t feel right or forceful. If your condition worsens or doesn’t get better please reach out to us for a private specialized consultation or visit your holistic health care provider.

Yoni Steaming – How it will Change Your Life


Sage. Aum. Intentions. Steam. Meditation. Serenity. Awaken.

Warm steam arises from a sweet crevasse beneath me.  It gently warms my yoni and invites her so sweetly to open. Like a rose petal, blossoming, she awakens and becomes receptive to the medicine that is entering. Sacred flowers and herbs, are meticulously picked and boiled for this ancient ritual. Time is taken from my modern-day business to drop in, to be and to breathe;pace allowed to focus all my attention on my beautiful Yoni (ancient sanskrit word for ‘sacred gateway’ or ‘vagina’).

Some go to church, yoga, or dance, while I go to my Yoni Temple every Sunday morning and pray. I have made this ceremony a part of my weekly holistic vaginal upkeep (excluding moontime). Through experience I recognize the valuable gifts it offers back to me and because it feels so good, I continue showing up for myself again and again in this way.  

“Every woman’s uterus needs attention, love & gratitude. When we are One with the womb, we are One with the Goddess.

– Dr. Rosita Arvigo, Womb Shaman


Boost Fertility – Yoni Steaming is widely used for increasing fertility due to its powerful ability to cleanse the uterus of any old, stuck residue. This makes for a beautiful clean ‘home’ ready for a sacred occupant.  If you are trying to conceive, it’s a powerful tool for bringing forth all dreams and creations into physical manifestation;t increases magnetism, abundance, creativity and feminine radiance.


Balance and Regulate Hormones – Yoni steaming is a direct path for herb and plant allies to penetrate the uterus. When boiled, the herbs release volatile oils, their unique medicine. As the warm steam opens and relaxes the outer labia, the inner labia swells and exposes herself.  The steam softens the cervix while the blood streams then carries the herbal medicine to the entire reproductive bowl.


Detox – Regular yoni steams stimulate and clean the lymph system, expelling toxins from the pelvic bowl. It also exfoliates the uterine lining of any residue membranes and buildup. This is really important to do especially after birth, miscarriage, abortion and hormonal birth control. Yoni steams are like a magical reset button.

Sweet Nectar – Due to the natural detoxifying effects of yoni steaming, your vaginal nectar will naturally begin to taste and smell sweeter as your body moves towards a more alkaline state. You may first experience an increase in discharge, as your uterus self-cleanses. Then the steam spa will thin excess mucus, leaving behind only vital fertile fluids.

Connect to the Cosmic Womb – Yoni Steaming, aka Bajos, v-steam and chai-yok, is an ancient practice, through many cultures, made modern. By connecting deeply into your feminine essence, your personal power source, as well as the Source of Creation, you will align to the will of the collective womb. All wombs are linked through an energetic current, or web, that is untethered by time and space. This means that as you are doing amazing healing for yourself, you are also liberating your ancestral and future generations.

Moontime Grace – After initiating a regular yoni steaming practice, your moontime will naturally become lighter and easier.. By cleansing the uterus of old blood and stagnant energy, while increasing circulation, yoni steaming aids in soothing all premenstrual symptoms, emotionally and physically. Check out Pain-free Period with the Ancient Art of Yoni Steaming for a detailed guide on how to ease symptoms.

Increases Sensitivity and Pleasure – Yoni steaming increases circulation, bringing more sensitivity and sensation to the vaginal canal. As it also tones and detoxifies, it resets the yoni to its natural state. This increases sensitivity and receptivity to touch and stimulation. Also, with regular steaming and loving attention, any pain or numbness will begin to fade, making space for more pleasure.

Self Love – Turning your attention towards yourself in a loving way is an act of self love.  You are focusing your vital mana (life-force energy) back onto yourself, for your own evolution and awakening. You are stating that you are worthy, you are deserving, and you are receptive to love and devotion. Yoni steaming is taking the time for you.

Yoni Guru – Your yoni knows best; always. This ancient practice gives you the key to tap into your innate wisdom and Divine Feminine intelligence. It invites you inside; to your intimate, sacred and powerful center. It is trusting the generations of wisdom that has been passed down from womb to womb to be here with us today.

Activates Kundalini Shakti – Yoni steaming is a deep spiritual experience. It awakens and fires up Kundalini Shakti, potent life-force energy that resides at the base of your spine. The steam sends the energy upwards and through the chakras (spirals of vital energy that contains codes for enlightenment).

It’s Changed Mine – Regular Yoni steaming rituals have changed the way I interact with my own body and the body of the world. It changed the way I eat, make love, speak to my yoni, take time for myself, and feel beautiful and worthy. It’s lightened and shortened my moontime, rid any symptoms of PMS, increased pleasure and sensuality in my yoni, and awakened me from the inside.

This is why, sister, I am passionate about sharing this potent information with you.

My vision is that it inspires you to try something new, and Remember Who You Are.

Let’s get started!


What you’ll need to create a Yoni Steam Spa in your own sacred space:

➵ Mahina Deep Steam Yoni Seat – Lovingly hand-made and blessed on the sacred island of Hawai’i from all natural wood and an organic beeswax stain. It increases your ability to relax into the ceremony and sensations and directs the channel of steam directly at your vaginal canal and anus opening. Why worry about squatting over a boiling pot when you can press the easy button?!  Our steam seats are easy to store and easier to use. I also take mine on traveling adventures and love to drop into the land by using fresh herbs and flowers I pick there. More details and purchase information here. 

➵ Yoni Steam Herbs – All organic herbs picked, blessed and dried for your yoni sauna. We offer different combinations for various intentions and needs. More details and to purchase here.

➵ BPA-free 5-gallon Bucket – Your Mahina Deep Steam Yoni Seat was created to easily sit on top of the bucket. This is the best way to enjoy yoni steaming with limited storage space or on the go. You can always find a bucket to fit and create a quick throne for yourself to steam. I also love to wrap a sarong or fabric around my bucket to offer a more sacred feel.

➵ A metal, ceramic or glass bowl to hold your steamy herbs.


You got this sister.

It’s time to Rise!

I love you,

Alila Rose Grace, Founder of Mahina Menstrual Cup 


Yoni Sunning – Harmony and Activation of Your Life Force Energy

Yoni is a sacred sanskrit word that translates to “source of all life” or “sacred space” referring to a woman’s holy grail, or vagina, between her legs. Our yoni is our opening into the infinite intelligence and center of creation. Our yoni is a place to be honored and cherished, a place of clarity and wisdom. When we get out of balance with life, our yoni is the first to let us know with symptoms of imbalance and disease.

Your Yoni Never Lies.

Taking time daily to connect with your yoni, to check in with her and to devote to her, will increase your connection and ability to hear her needs. At first it may feel funny, speaking to your yoni. Please trust that after some practice it will be your secret weapon to success! The more you allow her to be your guide, the more you will live in alignment with your deepest pleasures and desires. Following the wisdom of your yoni will allow you to step into the magnetism of creative mastery.

One of my favorite ways to connect with my yoni is yoni sun bathing. This is one of the most ancient and potent tools for awakening dormant energies.  Be prepared to shine light into the darkness, and love any hidden shadows.

Ancient Taoists called this “sunning” where you simply open your legs and have your yoni drink in the sunshine. When we honor the goddess temple within us, we increase our health, abundance, sensuality and fertility. The natural sunlight helps to kill bacteria and tones the muscles. By exposing the darkest or most yin part of our bodies to yang sunlight, we bring harmony and balance to our energy system. It is also very invigorating and stimulating for our sexual energy.

This practice has also been shown to boost the immune system and help alleviate yeast. Plus, your yoni lips (labia) will absolutely adore the warmth and vitamin D. In the 1930s, before antibiotics, sunlight therapy (heliotherapy) was favored by the medical community, proven to be the most successful treatment for infectious diseases.  The sun’s rays are deeply healing and also extremely activating, if you allow the light to penetrate. Infuse the golden glow of life-force vitality into your whole being.

I love to go nude in my backyard and bare my bottom to the sun for 10-15 minutes (gauge your time depending on how much sun exposure you are used to). I always feel a burst of mana (energy), inspiration and a flow of any stuck or stagnant energies. If you are in a cold winter zone, turn up the heat and catch the rays through a clear glass window.

Yoni Sunning Guide

  • Lay on your back with your knees bent, soles of feet kissing the earth and knees open wide.
  • Place your hands comfortably on your belly outlining your pelvic bowl.
  • On your inhale, imagine through your yoni lips (labia) sipping in the energy of love, light and gratitude from the sun’s rays.
  • On your exhale, release to the earth any tension, cords, patterns or imbalances.
  • Stay here for a few minutes deeping your rhythmic breath.
  • When ready to spice it up – contract your PC muscles (kegel or mula bandha) at the top of your inhale while massaging the sun’s healing rays into your belly.
  • Big open mouth exhale to release and soften.
  • Repeat and stay with it for 5 minutes.
  • Remember to have fun and be easy on yourself.
  • Leave time for self-reflection and integration.


Happy awakening beautiful!
