WEEKLY GANJA YOGA
Enhanced practice for relaxation, well-being, and the cultivation of inner peace.
Ganja Yoga isn't just yoga-plus-cannabis. Ganja Yoga with me is about Mindfulness, or the inner mental work of yoga; Freedom, or your ability to move your body in the unique way it needs; and Alignment, so you can enjoy a safe practice for years to come. I've been teaching these sessions for eight years.

“Do I have to use cannabis at Ganja Yoga?”
Yoga is great, altered or not. Sometimes students feel like using ganja to enhance their practice, and other times, having a yoga practice without ganja feels better. It’s always up to you.
“How much ganja should I consume for this practice?"
First-timers to Ganja Yoga or yoga in general should consume less cannabis than they usually do, so the experience of yoga is enhanced. Everyone’s relationship to cannabis is different.
"Is it co-ed?"
“Is it safe? What if I haven’t done yoga before”
Yes. We’re not going to get into an altered state of consciousness then show off our arm balances. Ganja Yoga is about experiencing something beautiful and trippy and cool inside yourself. Most of the time our eyes are all closed, so it’s about relaxing in an introverted way, without caring what others are doing.
I am a 500-hour certified hatha yoga teacher with twenty years of practice. Since 2009, I've taught Ganja Yoga to thousands of students in San Francisco, LA, San Diego, New York City, Vancouver, Denver, Boulder, Portland, Costa Rica, - and my home-town of Toronto.
Yoga injuries are sadly far too common, and having suffered one myself, I strive to ensure my students' bodies are kept safe in all of my classes. More than that, I empower my students to take responsibility for themselves, - and to chill the F out. :)
"Extremely relaxing practice and incorporates a sense of community and body consciousness that I've never experienced in all my years as a yogi. Plus, I've never slept so well!" ~ Michael
