In this fast-paced digital world, it’s easy for many of us to feel anxiety and even chronic physical pain from a lack of time to stretch, meditate, and exercise. Yoga and CBD are excellent tools for healing, cultivating presence, and ease.
Cannabis and yoga can both be viewed as aids to meditation, balance, and enhanced comfort in the physical body, as well as gateways to subtle understanding of the self and connection to universal energy/spirit.
This is an all-levels class with feel good movements, breath work, and meditation to increase the conductivity of energy and decrease stress and tension.

All humans have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The goal of the endocannabinoid system is maintain homeostasis in the physical body. Cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the entire body (in the brain, organs, glands, muscles, connective tissues, and immune cells). Disregulation in the body leads to disease and imbalance. The ECS is involved in regulating a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, regulation of sleep cycles, mood, memory, stress response, immune function and more.
The ECS works to restore imbalance within these processes. Over 100 compounds can be isolated from cannabis, called cannabinoids. Various external cannabinoids, including CBD, can support the ECS. CBD is one of these and is a completely non-intoxicating compound (won’t get you high), that can help relieves chronic pain and inflammation, reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate nausea, help treat seizures, glaucoma, fight cancer cells, promote heart health, and relive some PTSD symptoms.
