The number 8 is itself balanced, which means that it's the number of balancing both the material and spiritual aspects of our experience. Yoga can inherently invoke this balance when practiced regularly. With the busyness of our culture, the distractions, device addictions, and increasing numbers of people living with chronic pain, when you get to your yoga mat, there's still a lot of shedding to do before you can actually start to experience mindfulness; the root of all benefits derived from the practice.

So how does cannabis fit in? When people practice yoga, they do it for a multitude of reasons, which includes stretching, to get centered, to let go and find mindfulness, among others. Cannabis is an effective treatment when it comes to dealing with stress reduction and pain management, or awakening to your connection with creative flow . It possesses an amazing ability to interact with cell receptors, including dopamine and serotonin. The reaction between these receptors allows more neurotransmitters to flow throughout the body, and this can improve your wellbeing. Cannabis helps you let go of surface tensions and reduces pain so that you're starting your yoga immediately from a higher base line of relaxation. When you combine cannabis with yoga, it helps you move away from the "flight, fight or freeze" stress reaction, and into a state of relaxation. How you look in the postures becomes less important than focusing on what's going on inside and moving from the heart while focusing the mind on present moment awareness. The thinking mind is quieted and you're able to rely on your body to move you, and your lungs to breathe for you, all without strenuous effort. Making space for the diaphragm and heart to expand gives a sense of joy that feels like the ultimate surrender to what is. And being OK with what is is the spiritual practice. You develop an ability to focus less on form-dominant thoughts, predetermined goals about what your body should do, or what looks right. Instead, Elev8 creates space for you to notice what feels right, and move with present moment awareness of your whole self - mindbody, breath and spirit.

All students will receive a personal Mindful Cannabis journal for in-class use.
