When my friend first told me about the Twisted Sister Ganja Yoga event and that our instructor from YTT would be hosting it, I was beyond excited! Combining two of my absolute favorite things into a sweet community event that builds bonds off the mat too, is such a dream come true for me. Honestly, I would love to be able to host my own Ganja Yoga events in the future, but more on that later!

The Ganja Yoga class was held at this hip little community space called Urban Sanctuary, cool name huh?! We were greeted by the wonderful Jen Hicks grinning from ear to ear, and so were we! She showed us around and to the back patio space where the OMies were already tokin’ down a doob. As everyone trickled in, the joints were lit and the smoke clouds were almost as abundant as our excitement for our new found Cannabis Community and of course the Ganja Yoga. At last though, it was finally time to begin our stoney yoga practice on the mat. We settled within those 4 familiar corners and began to flow. I felt as if I were being transported into a different dimension, the connection I felt within my mind, body, spirit and soul was transcendental. Moving my body in synchronicity with my fellow yoga stoners was incredible, the sea of bodies ebbing and flowing to the song of our instructor’s voice zoomed me right into zen mode. After class we finished up with lots of hugs, and photos and maybe one more puff or two from the joint.

If you’re looking to attend this event you’ll be happy to know, parking is great in this location, but taking a Lyft would definitely be your best option, y’know since you’ll be stoned to the bone, and safety is paramount! The price is phenomenal for an event of this caliber and the people you’ll meet are super cool. I think getting to know everyone and sharing our love of cannabis was one of the best parts of this event. This yoga class is absolutely an all levels class and perfect if you’re just getting into yoga and cannabis. Overall this class was definitely the cherry on top of the cake of the week, my dear readers, and this won’t be our last event with Twisted Sister and Ganja Yoga!

Note: Pace yourself with your cannabis consumption if you are new to this sort of thing. You won’t offend anyone if you simply pass the dutchie to the left hand side.
