This is a bring-your-own-cannabis class, and people always have plenty to share. You must be age 21+ to attend. Bring ID. FAQs Do we need a MMJ card? Is cannabis provided? Medical cards are not required since Prop 64, however, since it passed, we've had to become a "BYO" event." Adults are legally allowed to share, and there's always plenty to go around. We love our Papa & Barkley and Flow Kana for yoga!! :) How much is mat rental? Mats are free in Oakland. Do you have any "karma yoga" programs to make Ganja Yoga more accessible? Pay-what-you-can slots are set aside at every class for low income folk. Email [masked] to register. Do I have to use cannabis at Ganja Yoga? Yoga is great, altered or not. Sometimes students feel like enhance their practice with cannabis, cacao, essential oils, certain music (etc.), and other times, having a yoga practice without cannabis feels better. Its always up to you. How much ganja should I consume for this practice? First-timers to Ganja Yoga or yoga in general should consume less cannabis than they usually do, so the experience of yoga is enhanced. Everyone's relationship to cannabis is different. Is it safe? What if I haven't done yoga before? Ganja Yoga is about experiencing something beautiful and trippy and cool inside yourself. Most of the time our eyes are all closed, so its about relaxing in an introverted way, without caring what others are doing. Our flow is slow, mindful, and relaxation-based. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is paid street parking, or its just a few minutes walk from BART. We recommend Lyft or BART. “Ganja Yoga clears the mind and relaxes the body with the perfect blend of socialising, medicating and stretching. It is a must try for anyone in search of unique experiences but be aware that once you have been to the studio, you might get hooked.” - Robert

We are an awesome group of students from all walks of life. People with all levels to yoga or experience with cannabis are welcome at our classes, and we have a variety of complimentary cannabis options to choose from. Along with providing organic, sun-grown, lab-tested cannabis, we create the space for relaxation and community at our numerous yoga classes and healing-arts events.
