You made it!
I am so, so happy you are here. Happy and grateful, because it wasn't so long ago that I had a hard time getting people to show up for Ganja Yoga. No one - not a single person - showed up for my first class in my living room in Toronto. Through my tears I might have paused to note that while no one was showing up for my class, I might have guessed at that, because no one was talking about cannabis-enhanced yoga online either. Seriously. There was no where else in the English-speaking world advertising cannabis-enhanced yoga classes.
Was I the only one who found that cannabis calmed my mind, softened my muscle tension, and made the flow of sensation as I stretched far more delicious? Was there no one else furtively toking before yoga?
That day in Toronto I decided I was still going to practice. Why spoil a good high with a little thing like a career disaster? And so it went. I kept at it. I had to. Cannabis-enhanced yoga was too powerful, too healing, not to. And at my next class, I actually had a few students show up. And they kept coming back, and telling friends, and word spread, and now somehow you heard about it. Tiny sparks, big fire.
Today, none years later, cannabis-enhanced yoga classes are sprouting up everywhere. and I can tell you that ganja yogis come in every shape, gender, sex orientation, ethnicity, and age, but there are some universals. they are fun loving. They are free thinkers, though not, like, beat-you-over-the-head-with-it free thinkers. They are kind. They are badasses for trying something different.
Just like you.
So. You are here. Cannabis-enhanced yoga is everywhere. And I got out of that living room. Welcome to the tribe. Let's dance.
