In this episode of the Simply Living Wellness Podcast, Donna Abreu interviews guest, Anna-thea, about how to develop a deeper, more spiritual, more nurturing relationship with our bodies through the practice of self-nurturing our sexuality by use of a yoni egg practice. She teaches us about heart-based expressions of sexuality, about how to love ourselves, how to set boundaries for ourselves, and how to communicate our authentic self.
Anna-thea talks about how, as women, we can connect to our divine feminine essence, how to access those softer, subtler energies inside of us, and how we can notice subtle responses in our bodies that we aren’t normally aware of. The world today contains so much unhealthy projection around our sexuality that is not supportive to human growth and expansion.
This episode is for you if you want to heal yourself from shame around sexuality from previous trauma, or conditioning from how sexuality is portrayed in the media? Maybe your Father was a sex addict or derogatory towards women. Maybe your partner is a porn addict. Maybe you want to experience more love and pleasure around your sexuality.
This episode is also for you if you want to learn how to balance and strengthen your pelvic floor, and if you wish to gain the many physical and spiritual benefits of a healthy pelvic floor.
This topic is so much more than sexual education. It’s about including our sexuality into our entire being.
In a previous episode with Anna-thea, we learned about heart-based communication in order to improve your relationships. Do you find yourself in frequent arguments with your spouse or partner? Do you argue with co-workers or your children? If you want to learn about heart-based communication, we encourage you to go back and listen to that episode. Learn how not to be the nagging wife, NOR the wife who puts on a pretty face and pretends everything is alright.
I also interviewed Anna-thea about Managing Your Emotions. If you are interested in learning the secrets of how to transform your life by learning how to reclaim your body as a woman, and how to empower yourself to awaken your divine feminine power, then I highly recommend that you go back and listen this episode.
What is a Yoni?
Yoni is an ancient tantric term, the Sanskrit word for vagina that means sacred space. Yoni has no negative or sexual connotation making it a perfect word to describe this part of the female anatomy. The Sanskrit term for the male anatomy is lingam which means wand of light. Using these ancient expressions for the human sexual anatomy shifts our relationship with this part of our bodies.
Anna-thea studied and received her certification at the Tantric Institute Integrated Sexuality. She is the author of the book, Empowering Yourself by Loving Your Body: The woman’s guide to reclaiming yourself as sacred .

What is the yoni egg practice?
The yoni egg practice, used mostly by the concubines in ancient China, is an ancient Chinese practice used to strengthen and tone the female anatomy. A yoni egg is crystal egg that is placed in the vagina. Traditionally, crystal eggs made of jade were used but Anna-thea likes to use and suggest rose quartz crystal eggs also. Each has different properties which we learn about in this episode.
Both spiritual and physical benefits.
A yoni egg practice can provide these beautiful spiritual benefits:
- Deeper, more spiritual and nurturing relationship one’s your body
- More connected to one’s divine feminine essence
- Ability to access those softer, subtler energies within us
- Increased confidence as a woman
Crystals also hold intentions, so it’s a good idea to treat it as a friend, perhaps naming it and blessing it upon insertion. “Let this yoni egg keep me safe.”
Everyone has both masculine and feminine energies. It doesn’t matter if you are female or male.
Different crystals hold different properties and energies. The jade egg carries masculine energies that when inserted into the female anatomy can create a nice balance in women. Some of the masculine qualities include:
- Grounding oneself
- Setting boundaries
- Increased focus and achievement of one’s goals
Rose quartz crystal holds more subtle, feminine energies and helps with qualities such as increasing emotional warmth, nurturing and balancing. To learn more about the differences between these energies, you can read Anna-thea’s blog post: How To Tell If You Show More Masculine Or Feminine Energy
Amazing Physical Health Benefits from a Yoni Egg Practice
Our female anatomy is not just about sexual pleasure or birthing babies. Our female anatomy is also about our own feminine health and being healthy in our bodies. When we remove the arousal part of sexual attention, we can then work with deeper energies by nurturing the muscles, increasing pelvic floor balance and also give “her” some relaxation and downtime.
The physical benefits of a yoni egg practice includes:
- Increased skin complexion for a youthful-looking face
- Overall increased health in the pelvic floor
- Vaginal and pelvic floor dexterity
- Increased intensity of orgasmic response
- Increases sexual reflexology
