You’re going to love this one. Get your yoga high…with marijuana! And, meditation too, of course. Some folks, we know, already get recreational with ‘enhanced inhales’ to deepen their yogic experience, but how about a class that actually requires that you light up? It’s true! On the long list of yoga mashups comes the most obvious, if not most illegal, combo – yoga and weed! The Globe and Mail reports on the new trend.
Teacher Dee Dussault who runs the pot yoga out of her home studio in Toronto (no, not CA – those yogsters smoke at home) says, “When you’re high, you can focus better on your breath.”
And there’s more…tokers rejoice!
She says smoking marijuana in small doses before a yoga class also makes students more receptive to the poses and philosophies behind the activities. “For some people, it makes them uninhibited and open to the idea of the heart chakra, for example.”
But comments from the happy students may be the best:
” Yoga and marijuana, together… It’s like putting salt on your food. It’s just a little enhancement.”— Tanya Pillay
“ Marijuana quells those voices in your mind. ”— Melinda Reidl, yoga practitioner
Namaste, Mary J. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em!
Would you try a weed-flavored yoga class? What are the benefits and/or disadvantages? Enlighten us. We won’t tell the cops.
