After any disaster usually the children are traumatised the most and the fact that they cannot always express themselves worsens it. Comprehending the magnitude of psychological and emotional disturbances is sometimes difficult when it comes to children. Usually there are evidences of acute stress disorder or secondary enuresis (bed-wetting – loss of bladder control). Then there are some kids who are scared and not ready to leave the house alone.

The healing process of the kids can begin if the parents know how to handle it well. Parents need to show the kids that they are in control of the situation and are not scared. If the children see their parents are scared then they will be affected more and much easily. 

Here are a few tips to help your child cope with the trauma better:

  • It is important for parents to gently explain what actually happened. They need to realise that there are different kinds of people in the world and some people who are not good harm others.
  • They should be encouraged to talk about the incident so that they can dispel doubts. However do not force your child to talk about it.
  • Catharsis is important. Encourage your child to vent out his/her feelings in various creative ways like drawing, painting or writing about it.
  •  Try and keep the child away form television channels that are very graphic and show gruesome details.
  •  Do not ignore symptoms like excessive irritability and unusual bed-wetting. Psychiatric help if needed should not be shied away from.

The New ‘Om’ of good sex life!

In yoga studios of suburban Delhi, there’s a new asana for sexuality, which is bringing a revolution in the lives of men and women. Delhi-based yoga expert Mini Shastri advises Surya Namaskar every morning for a scared sexual connection.

” Surya Namaskar is a combination of 12 different poses, back bends, forward bends. While doing the namaskar you contract and expand your nerves to the pelvic girdle, which is your sexual core. This stimulates your sexual hormones and helps you achieve a new sexual equilibrium. While kundalini yoga is also beneficial for a better sex life. For instance, vrkasana or the scorpio pose helps your reproductive organs.”

Awake your sensual being

Ellen Barrett’s book Sexy Yoga, is designed to open up seven chakras (energy centers) that involve sexuality: root, sacral and heart. “Yoga means union or yoke in Sanskrit, and it focuses on bringing the body into harmony with the mind and spirit. The awareness of sexuality through yoga is deeper and more intimate. Yoga is about discovering the joys of elegant sexuality,” says Barrett.

Why are more people rediscovering the yogic position on sexuality? “Yoga helps you in creating a balance. Kundalini yoga helps you create bio-energy, It activates your sex hormones. There’s a spiritual connection between yoga, sex and celibacy on the other. Yoga helps you achieve your needs, you can be celibate or satisfied sexually through yoga, it helps you supress or express sexual desire. Kundalini yoga is a bio-science of sexuality and psychology. It can rejuvenate through breathing exercises, which enhance consciousness, with bio-magnetic awareness, you can use your charms sexually. We have higher forms of prayananam ,” says Kundalini yoga expert, Meena Nanda, who teaches dynamic life management for well-being.

Do we really need Nude Yoga?

Perhaps, some people are taking yoga for sensuality a bit too far. Like New York-based ashtanga yoga teacher Aaron Star is the founder of Hot Nude Yoga, which combines ashtanga and vinyasa yoga session. “The students discover breathing techniques that will help you to relax and bliss out. The practice involves the classic stretching postures and breathing exercises, coordinated with chanting and meditation to stimulate the release of so-called kundalini energy. It uses the energy of sex to raise the kundalini energy to the higher chakras. It is a good idea to be a regular practitioner of ordinary yoga before you embark on yoga for sex,” says Star.

Mudras for Sexual Healing

Sexologist Dr Prakash Kothari believes, yoga is the perfect for emotional, sexual and spiritual well-being. “There are certain asanas that enhance physical intimacy — bhramari prayanam , chanting of Om with eyes and ears closed reduces anxiety, helps in contracting and expanding sexual nerves. While vajrasana helps in erectile dysfunctions, vajroli and ashwini mudra can help pregnant women pursue a healthy sex life after delivery. These mudras help the pelvic muscles. I also advise surya namaskar to those who have endrocrine imbalance. If you follow these excercises, yoga can really improve your sex life.”
