Yoga and cannabis have a lot in common. Both originated in India thousands of years ago, and both help us focus on our spiritual, philosophical, and physical selves. Whether you're a newbie or a longtime yogi, mixing meditation, stretching and marijuana is not for the faint of heart. Especially since both the cannabis plant and popular yoga practices have developed in intensity over the past few thousand years.So how can we safely take part in the historic spiritual practice of stoned yoga without passing out or getting too high? And how can cannabis and yoga enhance our connection with ourselves and the world around us?This episode, host Brit Smith chats with Lynsey Tamposi, founder of Maine Ganja Yoga and owner of the Nomad Retreat Center in South Paris, Maine. Lynsey and Brit discuss their histories with cannabis as a tool against substance use disorder, and how yoga alongside cannabis helps with their continued mental and physical health in recovery. Then Lynsey tells us about the history of ganja and yoga, the best postures for beginner yoga-stoners, and the kinds of events she holds at the Nomad Retreat Center.Get your Travel & Cannabis issue of Different Leaf magazine at DifferentLeaf.comFollow us on social media @DifferentLeaf and @BritTheBritishCheck out our merch line at
