People have been getting high and practicing yoga for a long time. But only with the rise of legal marijuana and Initiative 300, a social consumption ordinance passed in Denver in November of 2016, has yoga and cannabis become a new official trend.

For those that have been practicing “ganja yoga” unofficially for years, it’s a welcome change and a new kind of yoga to be experienced. The concept is also drawing a crowd of people willing to try yoga for the first time, including a lot of men, in particular. Shelly Jenkins, Founder of Twisted Sister Yoga, said she sees a higher percent of men in her classes at DANK Dispensary than she typically sees at classes at yoga studios around town. She attributes this trend to ganja yoga’s ability to appeal to men (and women, too) who have been interested in trying yoga, but have felt intimidated by traditional yoga studios due to a number of factors.

“It’s so approachable. People who have never practiced yoga before enjoy the experience because incorporating cannabis breaks down barriers and initiates a common bond. Students connect through marijuana culture and then benefit from a mind/body experience that feels good” said Cecile Weigle, Event Director of Cultivated Synergy, a RiNo based shared workspace that serves as an incubator and resource for the cannabis industry.
