As we enter into the year of 2020, you can find that there are lots of laws and legislation’s that are being passed to decriminalize and legalize the use of marijuana. This means we can finally get high and do yoga!
(We’re glad that Eyetoke.com is from Canada, where our weed is legal federally.)
But, for those that are living south of us, don’t worry there are plenty of states that are also opening up their doors to the use of marijuana. So, don’t worry you can find ways to get high before doing yoga.
It’s actually becoming more mainstream and marijuana use is now being incorporated to many daily-practices, such as yoga.
However, this phenomenon is not new, according to historical texts it states that Yogis have been smoking marijuana and practicing their spiritual belief for millennia. Dee Dussal, a certified Yoga instructor and author of “Ganja Yoga: A Practical Guide to Conscious Relaxation, Soothing Pain Relief, and Enlightened Self-Discovery” states that:
“By incorporating weed and yoga it brings a shift in consciousness that allows one to become more open to psychological, emotional, and energy states that aren’t usually operational in the grind of daily life”Dee Dussal, certified High-Yoga Instructor
So, next time you’re doing the downward-dog make sure to light some candles in your studio, relax and remember that this session will bring you the most calmest type of serenity. Also, try to create a peaceful ambiance by playing deep-entrancing melody in the background and focus your energy on positivity and let all your worries wash away by lighting a spliff. You live once, get high and do some yoga!
Here are the top 5 reasons why you should get high before your next yoga session!
1. You’ll feel Stress-Free:
It has been proven that it takes on average 20-60min for a person to acclimate to their environment and feel at peace. During the day, you are used to interacting with high-vibrations and engaging your body to slow down takes a lot of time. However, by getting high right before doing yoga all these physical-stress levels should wash away within 10 minutes of your yoga session. Let the day’s stress melt away and just focus on your inhales and exhales. Also, we recommend trying a hybrid strain of Sativa and indica, this will create the perfect mellow vibe without putting you to sleep.
2. Your Senses Will be Heightened:
When you combine smoking weed with yoga you’ll notice that all your senses will be 10x more alert. You’ll slowly drift into the room and feel the sound-vibrations around you, the scent of the candles will warm up your joints, everything will start to feel entwined and at peace. Due to Yoga being already a peaceful exercise, this will give a complete new body-high to your new session.
3. Music Will Become Your Portal:
Getting high before yoga will not only relax all your muscles and make you feel in tune. But it will also connect you with the vibrations of music. That’s why it’s important to choose the perfect hertz and portal yourself into the abyss of intergalactic sounds. I recommend the 528 Hz – this will help you repair and heal the heart chakra. Check this vibrational melody! Create the perfect playlist on what you’re feeling that day and start cleansing yourself by getting high and doing yoga.
4. In-tune with Your Movements:
By getting high and then practicing yoga you will become in sync with your body and all the internal parts of you. It will help you develop an inner-connection to your body and mind. Especially when you do Yoga, there are many different variations of body movements and this will challenge you to truly connect with the art of yoga.
5. Restore Your Energy:
At the end of your yoga session when you start coming off the high make sure to sit in a meditative pose and truly submerge yourself in the experience you just had. It helps to sit in the hero’s pose (virasana) by placing your hands on the heels of your feet, you’ll feel the energy being emitted from your body. Take this energy and heal your inner and outer balance.
It’s the perfect way to unwind from a hectic lifestyle that we’re used to. Getting high before yoga will bring you inner peace, determination and even a spark for new things to flow your way! So next time you’re about to smoke some weed, maybe roll out the mat and create a cozy ambience and truly enjoy the power of weed and yoga. Namaste.
