It's clear that both Yoga and Cannabis offer a ridiculous number of health benefits, even for people who aren't drawn to the spiritual aspects. For those that do wish to go beyond the pragmatic applications, Yoga and Cannabis are both very effective tools for spiritual growth, or the journey toward enlightenment.
According to both science and yoga, relaxation is the key to well-being. Cannabis enhanced yoga brings greater introspection, daydreaming, self-examination, creativity, and play -- the qualities of consciousness we enjoy when we're relaxed.
Because of it's focus on sensation and embodiment over visual form, Ganja Yoga tends to be a more internalized experience than what many are used to from yoga. Cannabis draws the practitioner more deeply into feeling, so there's less mental activity related to what is going on around the yogi.
Cannabis has positive mental effects, particularly with regard to creativity. Studies have shown that when people are high, they make creative associations that can lead to radically new ideas. Cannabis doesn't hinder linear thinking; it encourages nonlinear thinking.
For thousands of years, yogis, mystics, and shamans have been using cannabis and other plant medicines to leave behind ordinary states of consciousness and explore portals to other dimensions of experience like relaxation, embodiment, pleasure, and creativity.

Ten years ago, Dee became the first person to offer public cannabis enhanced yoga classes, and she authored the best-selling Harper Collins book by the same name in 2017.
Over the past decade, Dee has taught Ganja Yoga to thousands of students in nearly twenty US cities and internationally. She’s had over one hundred people attend the “Ganja Yoga Teacher Training” from as far as Hong Kong and Australia, and she has nearly three-dozen certified Ganja Yoga teachers across the continent. Publications such as The New York Times and Business Insider have featured her work.
Dee has brought Ganja Yoga to MAPS’ Psychedelic Science Conference, San Francisco State University, Emerald Exchange, Cultivation Classic, The Plant Spirit Medicine Conference, and Burning Man. A seasoned yoga practitioner of twenty-five years, Dee’s main passion is making yoga safe and accessible for all bodies and levels, because of the yoga injury she has, and the negative relationship she once had to cannabis.

"I do not consider myself a religious person in the usual senses, but there is a religious aspect to some [cannabis] highs. The heightened sensitivity in all areas gives me a feeling of communion with my surroundings, both animate and inanimate. Sometimes a kind of existential perception of the absurd comes over me and I see with awful certainty the hypocrisies and posturing of myself and my fellow men. And at other times, there is a different sense of the absurd, a playful and whimsical awareness that we spend a lifetime being trained to overlook and forget and put out of our minds. "
