Take your Yoga Practice to the Next Level.
The ultimate purpose of yoga is different among every yogi. Some practice to achieve a mind-body connection, some are looking to become more flexible, and others practice just to relax and unwind. Whatever your goal is in yoga, consider pairing your routine with CBD to help elevate your overall experience.
Yoga + CBD = Long Time Friends
CBD actually tracks all the way back to yoga’s Indian heritage as The Vedas (ancient Hindu scriptures) consider Cannabis as one of the 5 sacred plants.
Quick breakdown: Cannabis is a genus of plants that both marijuana and hemp fall under, however they are two completely separate plants. All Resilience CBD is hemp-derived. Check out this blog to learn more.
Yoga has been paired with Cannabis for centuries — and for a good reason. Here are a few of the benefits you may experience the next time you take Resilience CBD oils before you hit the mat.
1. Prolonged Savasana
You know that amazing feeling at the end of class when all the work is behind you, and your mat calls you into a peaceful nirvana? That’s called Savasana: A meditation to completely calm and relax the body at the end of a yoga sequence. Because CBD relieves mental and physical tension, inflammation, and anxiety, many yogis have found it has prolonged the sought after feel-good state of Savasana.
2. More Focused
What is going through your mind in 1.5 hour yoga class? A huge component of yoga is balance and that requires a lot of focus. In order to truly tap into that mind-body connection, it is essential to keep your headspace clear. CBD will help promote mental clarity and calmness. This allows you to stay focused on your sequences and get even deeper into your practice, rather than thinking about what you’re grabbing to eat after class.
3. Improved Flexibility
Yep, you heard it correctly. Pairing CBD with yoga can actually promote flexibility. Flexibility plays a large role in your body’s overall health and longevity. CBD helps to support blood flow to your muscles, which increases flexibility when used before and after stretching or yoga. CBD also eliminates any inflammation causing muscle strain, allowing your body to move more freely.
4. Ultimate Relaxation
Both CBD and yoga have been found to work against anxiety, mental strain, and stress. Yoga actually increases levels of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which regulates nerve activity. CBD works with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (found within the nervous system) to promote homeostasis, or balance throughout the body. The Endocannabinoid System helps to regulate mood, behavior, pain, sleep, and stress. Basically, pairing CBD and yoga is your remedy for ultimate R & R.
