We’re seeing a lot popping up about the latest craze that blends smoking flowers and heightening your awareness while making a few downward dog moves. In an article found on yogiapproved.com, the writer describes this practice as a controversial one. “Yogis are on both sides of the fence when it comes to the introduction of cannabis into their yoga practice.” Whether someone chooses to indulge before grabbing their yoga matt is entirely personal and why wouldn’t the yogi be on the fence.

We would have to agree with the yogis “Many yogis contend that cannabis helps them develop a better connection with their bodies” While it’s not for everyone, it does seem that when you get a buzz, which yoga is the perfect thing to do.

We disagree with the yoga instructor, Nancy Romano or Dr. Sands saying it doesn’t belong. While they make a good point, we think if you’re enjoying yoga and the discomfort of holding un-comfy poses, then it’s doing you some good. With the very least that can happen is you can hold your poses longer.
