One of the most essential pieces to the cannabis movement is normalizing the conversation, and in this allowing people to have the opportunity discuss the use of cannabis for wellness experiences. We have only scratched the surface of wellness options that the cannabis plant has to offer, from everything from juicing to lotions to oils and other extracts.
Grown Rogue and Jayne are helping to lift the stigma and educate others about wellness and cannabis by offering the community the Rogue Yoga with Jayne series. This series will include 5 classes, each based off a different theme and desired wellness effect.
ROGUE Yoga classes:
9/12/18 Relax (Restorative yoga)
9/26/18 Optimize (Vinyasa yoga)
10/10/18 Groove (Dance cardio yoga)
10/24/18 Uplift (Yin/Yang yoga for depression and anxiety)
11/7/18 Energize (Hatha power basics yoga)
Doors open at 6:30. Yoga from 7-8pm.
Classes will take place at 19 NW 5th Ave., 3rd Floor, Portland, OR 97209.
Throughout the series, Jayne will be discussing the benefits of cannabis and yoga, what strains to help enhance certain workouts, and the best ways to consume cannabis for optimal body engagement. PAX will serve as a sponsor at the events.
“Rogue Yoga with Jayne is about creating an experience where adults can obtain a higher education on cannabis coupled with an elevated yoga flow,” said Briana Burke, Inventory Manager at Jayne.
“Grown Rogue couldn’t think of a better way of highlighting our focus on using cannabis to create the Right Experience Every Time” said Sarah Strickler, Co-Founder and Community Relations Director for Grown Rogue. “When Briana came to us with the idea of doing a yoga series based on our Relax, Optimize, Groove, Uplift, and Energize categories in partnership with Adam Johnson (who will be teaching the series) we jumped on the idea. These are exactly the types of relationships and partnerships we want to be a part of. They build community and allow for people to connect through movement. We look forward to meeting a bunch of new people and having a great time.”
One of the best things that has come out of legalization is the opportunity for research, even if only in the private sector or in specialized partnerships. Thanks to research, we are able to help cannabis consumers choose their desired effect, or in the case of this series, give people the wellness experience they are looking for.
Yogi Adam Johnson will serve as the class instructor for the series. Adam has been teaching yoga for more than 11 years and has shared his practice in over 5000 classes. His training was in free-flowing ashtanga inspired vinyasa, with a heavy influence on yin. He also had extensive training in anusara and alignment based practices, and is particularly focused on the transitioning between poses. He teaches regularly at Burning Spirits Yoga in Portland.
