There’s Now a Toronto Yoga Class that Starts with Smoking Weed

There’s a yoga class in Toronto that comes with an added perk: smoking weed.

No, it’s not a late April Fool’s Day joke.

At Ganja Yoga – located in High Times Cafe in Kensington Market – each class begins with a few tokes of marijuana via a vaporizer, which is passed around a circle.

The desired result is heightened relaxation, spiritual growth, and focus.

Often, a musician will play a guitar, adding to the chilled out vibe.

Health-conscious stoners will appreciate the use of the vaporizer as opposed to a pipe or rolled joints, which heats the hemp to create THC rather than burning it. It’s basically the “healthy” way to get high.

The only downfall is you have to bring your own pot (there shall be no mooches in this yoga class). Each person brings a tiny amount and it’s shared among fellow weed-loving yogis.

Each 90-minute class can accommodate up to 20 people and costs $20, or you can purchase four for $40.

Whether “ganja yoga” becomes a thing across the country remains to be seen. One thing is for sure: if you’re among the paranoid set of pot smokers, this may not be for you.
