Our editorial content is not influenced by any commissions we receive. I recently realized that the benefits I get from practicing yoga—peace, energy, strength—I also get from another activity: BDSM. With yoga, when I hit the mat, nothing else matters. I just go through the motions, shift poses as I breathe in and out, move my body, push it further. BDSM is a vital force in my life, part of my sexual identity, though not always sexual. According to a research team studying the science of BDSM at Northern Illinois University, it makes sense that yoga and bottoming have similar benefits, especially when it comes to altered states of consciousness.

Brad Sagarinhad participants put into pairs for a scene with one person topping and the other bottoming. While people in subspace report feeling sort of dreamy and out of it, people in topspace are very focused and driven. He suggested it was possibly analogous to meditation, and other mind states, such dreaming, hypnosis, and various drug highs. This state was also reflected when researchers found that bottoms' cortisol yoga bdsm went up during the scene as their bodies responded to stressbut their self-reported levels yoga bdsm stress went down. Yoga is energizing. My breathing carries my body from one asana, or pose, to the next as I go through one sequence into another and on and on.

Breathe in: arms up. Breathe out: arms down. When I practice, I become meditative and my body trusts me. My body is both calm and exhausted in a good way. During a scene, I go through a similar process, though not with an instructor, but a partner who administers pain and sensation.

My favorite method of delivery is impact play—spanking, flogging, etc. I trust my partner to see me approaching my limits and start out slowly with light sensation. I focus on nothing except the scene.

Every few minutes, he checks in, asks if I want to escalate. This process repeats itself until the flogging gets more intense. I push my body harder and harder; I enjoy this sensation. I am in awe of how much my body can handle, how strong I am. My skin burns and the pain becomes almost too much.

I take a deep breath in and as I exhale, I relax every muscle in my body, knowing that if my body is tense, the pain is worse. He knows this and on my exhale, he flogs me. Breathe in: prepare. Breathe out: accept. When I accept, I become aware of how much I am yoga bdsm go and slip into subspace—where my awareness then wanes.

This is when these activities, yoga and bottoming, are most similar. I spoke to people on FetLife, a social networking site for kinksters. BDSM is my new yoga.

Yoga bdsm

Yoga is a solitary practice in which one attempts to move gracefully from asana to asana, to clear the mind with focused breath, and push the body. BDSM looks violent from the outside, but it offers me the same benefits of escape, empowerment, and serenity. Both of these activities are about giving up control over your body and letting someone else guide it into an altered state of consciousness. Everything else disappears. One of those I can show off, the other, not so much. All Rights Reserved.
