Congratulations on gifting yourself your very own Jade Egg! You will be delighted at how much self-love you feel once you start using your Jade Egg. And if you don’t yet have one of these gorgeous stones, you can purchase an authentic Nephrite Jade Egg here.
Below you will find a list of Beginner’s Eggsercises to help you begin your Jade Egg practice. That said, there really is soooo much to learn about using your Jade Egg, hence why I have put together a brand new website, Yoga for the Vagina, as a free Jade Egg resource for you.
On this website I answer 42 of the most Frequently Asked Questions about the Jade Egg, there is a complete page sharing the history, use and recommendations for using the Jade Egg, and you can even download my FREE Yoga for the Vagina Starter’s Sequence (a much more in depth version of the Beginner’s Eggsercises below).
So please check that page out for all your Jade Egg love!
It is STRONGLY advised you read the information on the Yoga for the Vagina website, before you start using your Jade Egg.
Now it’s time to get to learn how to incorporate the Jade Egg into your life so you can continue to develop your relationship with YOU! The Jade Egg practice really is one of the most beautiful self-love rituals you can do. While I encourage you to sleep with the egg inside and leave it in for a few hours during the day, a regular practice with specific eggsercises will open you up to even deeper delight and pleasure.
It’s important to understand that when using the Jade Egg the main purpose is to help you build a positive relationship with your vagina, and thus yourself. For that reason, practising with the Jade Egg should be entered into from a place of love and calm relaxation, therefore the focus is as much on the being, as it is the doing. It is vital you take your time with each eggsercise, relaxing into it in a way that allows you to intimately connect with your body.
Your Yoga for the Vagina condensed Starter’s Sequence
Including your Jade Egg Beginner’s Eggsercises….
Preparing your Jade Egg for use:
Take one metre of unwaxed dental floss (you’ll need to order this online as supermarkets/chemists don’t stock it – you can purchase it from the online shop), thread through the hole and tie in a knot so that the knot is at the narrow end of the egg.
The Warm Up:
Take a minute or two to simply breathe into your body, allowing yourself to connect in with your vagina. When you feel ready, begin to massage your beautiful breasts. This will help you connect with your sensual self and open and lubricate the vagina. The kidney meridian – responsible for a woman’s sexual arousal – is in her breasts, which helps your vagina naturally lubricate in preparation for sipping the egg inside.
Move your hands down to your vulva (external genital region) and begin massaging your groin, vulva, inner thighs and perenium lovingly. Just like any exercise routine you need to warm up first!
Once you’re feeling ready, bring the egg to the vaginal opening. And with the big end start to form tiny circles with the egg, massaging it around the inner angle, until you find the right angle.
Allow the vagina to yawn open, and gently sip the egg inside.
Please note: Most women have lost the ability to sip things inside of them, hence in the full Yoga for the Vagina only program I teach you specific techniques to develop the muscles so you can sip the egg in.
In the meantime, try sipping and if you can’t sip the Jade Egg in (don’t get down on yourself as this is normal when you start out), simply apply gentle pressure on the Jade Egg as you exhale your vagina open, and allow the Jade Egg to softly move inside.
Take a moment to smile into your heart and vagina, then simply move into these Jade eggsercises with love and heart-felt presence, remembering that with all eggsercises you want your squeezing to be gentle and your relaxing to be full.
Eggsercise 1: Lying in the Base Position (as per the image), bring your awareness to your PC (pubococcygeus) muscle – the muscle you squeeze to stop yourself from urinating. As you inhale for four slow counts, gently squeeze your PC (you would be squeezing your Jade Egg if it were inside of you), and as you exhale for four slow counts relax your PC. Continue to squeeze and release, inviting your vagina to really melt open on the exhalation. We hold a lot of unconscious tension in our vagina, and Vaginal Squeezes help us release everything that we are holding onto that is not serving us. What’s SUPER important to understand, is that the ‘release’ is even more important than the squeeze. So make sure as you exhale, you give yourself permission to release your vagina fully, otherwise you risk building tension in the vagina which leads to an array of health problems, not to mention, an inability to orgasm.
Eggsercise 2: From the Base Position, as you inhale and squeeze your vagina, leading from your tailbone, roll your hips up off the floor, one vertebra at a time, until your hips can’t go any further. As you exhale, release your vaginal squeeze and gently roll down through your spine with your sacrum and hips the last to touch down. Repeat 5 more times with conscious awareness.
Eggsercise 3: Kneeling on the floor, hands on thighs, spine tall and shoulders relaxed, inhale and squeeze your vagina as you flex forward, and exhale and release the squeeze as you flex back. Allow the movement to come from your pelvis, so you feel like you’re riding a camel! Repeat 60 times, flexing at your own womanly pace. Be careful with your neck, and simply look forward throughout the pose if you feel any discomfort at all. The flexibility of our spine is directly related to how youthful we feel and look, hence this is a powerful pose in helping us maintain a healthy radiance.

WARNING: If wearing the egg around during the day, don’t forget it’s in when you visit the toilet! Hold onto the string and urinate as usual. If the egg comes out that’s ok. It’s your body saying: ‘I’ve had enough for today.’
‘I am your Jade Egg and I am here to help awaken your sensual self from its deep slumber! With regular, loving practice, I will bring youthfulness, health, longevity, and hours of bliss in the bedchamber!’
Commonly asked questions when starting out…
What happens if the egg gets stuck inside?
Firstly, that’s why we attach a piece of unwaxed dental floss. And secondly, if for some reason the string did come off, or you inserted it without the floss – which is a common practise – it can’t get lost. It’s impossible for it to go past the cervix. Even for women who have had a hysterectomy and had the cervix removed, the doctors sew up the vagina so that it’s closed at the top – there is absolutely no way anything can get lost inside. For women who have had this kind of operation, you want to be using the egg because you need to prevent prolapse from having ‘extra space’ in your pelvis.
So now that we know it can’t get lost under any circumstances, if you do find you can’t get it out, my first bit of advice is: Don’t stress. Simply approach it in a calm manner, get yourself into a squat position, like you’re about to lay an egg, and bear down as if you were going to have a bowel movement, and it will fall right on out. Just make sure you’re ready to catch it, or you have something soft for it to land on. A good belly laugh or coughing will also help the egg move out. Many people do use the egg without the string, which by all means give it go once you develop more vaginal control.
I cannot feel my egg. Is there something wrong with me?
No. This is completely normal. In fact, the Jade Egg is not meant to be ‘felt’. Imagine feeling a tampon all the time – it’d be quite annoying! The purpose of the egg is to help you develop your awareness, sensitivity and dexterity. We have an infinite resource of bliss within us, and the Jade Egg is there to help awaken us to that immense pleasure.
It’s much like wine. To an untrained nose, a wine will smell like any other. Yet to a trained nose, each wine will have a distinct bouquet of scents. This is true for any of our senses. It’s simply a case of waking them up so they can feel more. This is why I suggest staying away from vibrators, which actually dull the senses.
Should I use the Jade Egg when I’m menstruating?
My answer is always: I don’t know, should you? Me personally, I prefer not too as the body is wanting to clear itself out and leaving this area free allows for this. Of course, you may feel differently. If you’re drawn to use the egg when you’re bleeding, by all means do. It really is a personal choice. To my knowledge there is no risks of using the Jade Egg during your period. My only suggestion would be, don’t leave it in for more than a few hours, so the blood can easily exit your body. It’s really important in not just the Jade Egg practise, but in life in general, that you really do start to trust your intuition – your inner knowing – as you always know what’s best for you.
I’m pregnant. Is it safe to use the Jade Egg.
For anyone who is pregnant – although the Jade Egg practices are generally very safe, it is best to consult your doctor before starting a Jade Egg practice. If you have been using a Jade Egg for at least six months prior to getting pregnant, then in most cases it will be fine, and will actually help your pregnancy and train your vagina to give birth. However, it is not advised to start a Jade Egg practice while pregnant, as you don’t want to be changing the shape and structure of your pelvic floor during this beautiful baby-growing time. I share how to modify your practice for pregnancy, inside the Yoga for the Vagina online course.
