Yoga’s mind-body-spirit connection makes it popular for men and women of all ages. It teaches us to become more present with our bodies and breathing while enhancing our physical health.
By its very nature, yoga is holistic, and many people who practice yoga do so in order to bring a greater sense of harmony into their lives.
According to the Chopra Center, “Through conscious breathing, movement, and attention to the physical postures, you cultivate a state of body-centered restful awareness.”
Balance is a key yogic principle—not only the literal balancing of the physical body but also the figurative balancing of our external lives. In a word, yoga can help us achieve homeostasis.
Yoga and CBD go hand-in-hand
Like yoga, hemp CBD extract promotes homeostasis in the body. The entourage of cannabinoids, terpenes, phytonutrients, and antioxidants contained in full-spectrum CBD work together to bring a sense of balance to the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
There are a variety of ways to incorporate your daily serving of CBD into the yoga routine that fits best into your life.
1. Hatha Yoga
Hatha yoga is a general term that often describes a basic, breathing- and stretching-centric yoga practice. Hatha classes are often foundational in nature, and easily accessible to yogis at every level.
Incorporate Hemp CBD extract Tinctures into your Hatha yoga routine by taking a few drops under your tongue before class. Our Natural flavor is earthy and reminiscent of our bodies’ connection to nature. Or, have a few drops of Cinnamint for an enhanced flavor experience before you hit the mat.
2. Kundalini Yoga
If you want to enhance your yoga practice with focused, intense breathwork, Kundalini yoga may be a great complement to your fitness routine. Kundalini yoga sequences, or kriyas, center your focus on how specific breathing patterns affect your body as you move through the poses.
CBD capsules could be the perfect complement to your Kundalini yoga routine. Discreet and free of flavor, capsules provide a serving of CBD that won’t move your focus away from Kundalini’s demanding breath work.
3. Ashtanga Yoga
Ashtanga yoga is a powerful, advanced yoga practice for those who want a challenging workout. Athletes and advanced yogis will appreciate the structured sequences and sustained length of Ashtanga sessions.
After Ashtanga, massage CBD Hemp Balm into your muscles to reinvigorate yourself post-workout. Hemp CBD extract is a great addition to your recovery routine, whether topical, sublingual, or ingested.
4. Hot Yoga
Hot yoga is a heated workout—literally—that involves a yoga flow in a humid, heated room (95-100 degrees). Hot yoga promotes profuse sweating, fat burning, and heightened flexibility.
Just like any high-intensity exercise, hot yoga requires you to drink plenty of water to replace fluids lost through sweating. Add a few pumps of Hemp CBD Extract Liposomes to your water, stir to dissolve (our Liposomes are completely water-soluble and have a tasty citrus zing), and drink up to avoid dehydration—and get a nice serving of CBD in the process.
