The Friday Special – CBD + Yoga for a Harmonious Practice with Emily Berg, Herbalist and CBD ambassador for the Alchemist’s Kitchen
Friday, July 13, 2018
Join us for a lively and experiential discussion with herbalist Emily Berg on the wide-ranging benefits of CBD oil, and how to use it in combination with your yoga practice.
CBD is the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis widely known for its ability to quickly reduce stress and as a long-term anxiety-reducer; it is a helpful sleep aid for many, as it helps soothe the nervous system.
For yoga, it can work as an incredible aid to drop into your body and your practice at a much deeper level. Instructors use CBD as both a pre-practice aid for this purpose, and as post-practice muscle salve because of its fast-acting anti-inflammatory properties.
