The OMazing Effect: What Happens When You Add CBD to Your Yoga Practice 

Expert Advice
Fitness

CBD is continuing to make waves in the wellness conversation. With potential benefits ranging from pain relief to better sleep to peacefulness and calm, CBD is a powerful plantbut does it have a place on your yoga mat?

“At Jasper Organics, we view CBD not just as a product, but as a catalyst that can be used to transform different areas of one’s life, from physical ailments to mental clarity. And because of the unique way it brings balance to the body, CBD provides the perfect inner environment for outward change.” 

So, what would be the perfect lifestyle practice to complement the benefits of CBD? Yoga.  
Whatever your level or wherever you find your flow, the connection between CBD and yoga—and what happens when you add it to your wellness routine—might surprise you. 

CBD Hemp Leaves

It’s an ancient pairing.
Did you know that the same ancient holy books and Vedas that first mention yoga are also the first to mention hemp? Our “universal regulator,” the endocannabinoid system, has a crucial component called anandamide—the “bliss molecule”—which is named after the Sanskrit word ananda, or bliss. Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Āsana, hatha, and prāna probably sound familiar, whether you practice regularly or you're a yoga newbie. CBD and yoga have a shared origin... interesting, right?

Yoga-Meditation-Pose

Adding it to your yoga flow.
If you’re ready to amplify your yoga practice naturally, here are a few products you can try the next time you step onto your mat and into your zen zone. You can expect pain relief, energy, and an overall calming sense of self.

Daybreak Roll On

Daybreak Roll On  

This CBD product fits right in your pocket. Containing hundreds of unique plant compounds called terpenes (think instant aromatherapy), the Daybreak Roll On delivers a soothing scent with vitalizing effects that are best suited for use before your yoga practice.  

Use: Gently roll the glass roller along your temples, neck, jaw and/or any sore spots on your body. This topical CBD product is extremely stimulating once it kicks in (about 30 minutes), immediately relieving pain, tension, and stress.  

Active Ingredients: CBD, Jojoba Oil, Vetiver, Lavender, Frankincense, White Fir.

CBD Body Lotion

CBD Body Lotion  

Luxury meets relaxation on the molecular level with this high-quality (and naturally fragrant) body lotion. Infused with 250 milligrams of active CBD, this product is designed to soothe and relieve soreness + stiffness in your muscles & joints while leaving your skin smooth. The lotion can be applied immediately before and after your yoga flow.  

Use: Apply generously to the areas that cause you pain or those that are ‘tested’ most by your yoga practice—knees, low back, etc. Massage thoroughly into skin and prepare to feel seriously supple and relaxed. 

Active Ingredients: Full Spectrum Hemp Distillate, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax.

Relax CBD Oil

Full Spectrum CBD Oil (Relax) 

CBD is powerful, especially when it comes to promoting mental and emotional wellbeing. Our 500mg CBD oil is likely strong enough to provide all the upliftment needed when ingested prior to your practice, helping to make a difference with your yoga flow by encouraging equilibrium. And just like with yoga, CBD’s benefits tend to emerge slowly but strongly over time.   

Use: Under your tongue, take roughly half a dropper (~8 milligrams) of our oil half an hour before your next yoga session begins. You’ll likely feel calmer and more at home in your body. Namaste! 

Active ingredients: Full Spectrum, Full Active Hemp-Derived CBD.   
 
If you’re ready to raise your baseline, adding CBD to your yoga and wellness routine might be your next move. Want to get started? Use code MINDBODY for 20% off all Jasper products!

What is Wellness?

Expert Advice
Wellness

To say the last year and a half was tough would be an understatement. In fact, it will probably go down as one of the most difficult times for our modern generation. In one of the many social polls we conducted during the pandemic, some of you described this time as a sheer “dumpster fire” or “like stepping on a Lego.” And to be honest, I couldn’t agree more.

Luckily, we’ve been able to get back to some form of normalcy in our lives and wellness routines over the last several months. As vaccines became available to the public, wellness businesses welcomed fitness fanatics, haircut seekers, and massage lovers back to in-person wellness experiences. And thank goodness for that—my roots and horrible posture from working from my bed were both getting wildly out of control. This girl needed a good massage and cupping session stat.

If there’s one thing we learned from the pandemic, it’s that our wellness routines are as personal as they are important. During shelter-at-home, those routines looked a bit different. For many, it meant taking a new approach to the “typical” wellness services we count on—I’m looking at you DIY haircuts, at-home waxing sessions (ouch!), and virtual swerking classes.

Now that we can leave our humble abodes to take advantage of in-person experiences again, the word “wellness” has seemingly taken on a new meaning.

Recently, we conducted another one of our famous social polls to see what wellness means to you, our Mindbody community, now that we're slowly but surely getting back to our regularly scheduled programming. We also tapped some of our most influential Mindbody business owners about the ever-evolving wellness landscape.

Here’s what you all had to say.

Wellness is more important to you than ever

According to our annual Mindbody Wellness Index, 60% of Americans say they’re more focused on their health and wellness since COVID. Consumers are now realizing they need to take greater care of themselves to optimize and preserve their health. When we asked you on Instagram how important wellness is, a whopping 98% said it was more important than ever. When it comes to how you’re practicing wellness, though, the answers were all over the board. Many of you pointed to journaling, practicing breathwork, and daily workout routines (cycling and yoga topped the list) as being the activities that help you keep your chill throughout the week.

I’m also happy to report that over 50% said you tend to feel more blessed than stressed on a daily basis—which is more than likely a big improvement. Let’s be honest, a year ago I would’ve bet a billion dollars that 99.9% of us knew no other feeling than anxiety—am I right? But even with the stress in our lives dwindling, many of you are still experiencing burnout at the end of a long work week (guilty!). But instead of succumbing to a bottle of wine for relief (please, that was so 2020), you’re unwinding by going to your favorite workout classes—with hot yoga, barre, and Pilates as your faves.

What wellness means to the pros

Let’s be honest, we should credit the business owners in this space for helping us reignite our spark when it comes to our wellness routines, right? Thanks to them, we’ve been inspired to prioritize the activities that help us feel our best. In turn, we thought it’d be interesting to learn what wellness means to them—and how that definition has changed over the past eighteen months.

Here’s what they had to say.

“Wellness is living in balance—mind, body, spirit. Highs and lows. It all ebbs and flows and we can navigate it a bit better when we take time to move, breath and remember who we are, and how we are connected to this big, beautiful world.” - Jess Pierno, Founder, Owner, and Chief Inspiration Officer of Yoga Heights

“Wellness is a true balancing of the mental, physical, and spiritual. It has definitely evolved over the years for me—from something that I just thought was about exercising and eating a healthy diet—to also incorporating balancing and healing internally and spiritually.” - Stefanie Patterson, Owner, Indianapolis Salt Cave and Halotherapy Center

“My sense of wellness has evolved from staying healthy and motivated, mind/body/spirit... to being more gentle with myself, less demanding. Accepting my limitations, taking time for resting, and gaining real clarity about what's important. I care less about what people think of me—difficult as a performer and as a business owner with so many demands on me—and more about getting quiet and tapping into the divine source inside of me that helps me discern my next move. In this way, I know my motives are as pure as possible and I'm not getting distracted—not that I don't make mistakes! Those are necessary, that's how we learn!” - Johanna Krynytzky, Owner, Hip Expressions Belly Dance Studio

“My studio name reminds us that we are constantly evolving. The past 18 months have certainly shown us that! Wellness to me means doing your best on any given day to make sure that you are taking care of yourself as best you can. It leads to resilience. Diet, exercise, sleep, a sense of community, and some form of faith. It all matters. Setbacks happen all the time, and every day is a chance to start again. We strive to be 'cheerleaders' for our clients when we sense that things are coming out of balance in their lives. So many have been with us for 18 years and are friends—they are our community and we all watch out for each other.” - Mo Wolfe, Owner and Founder, Evolution Pilates

Putting wellness into action

I think we can all agree that there isn’t one true definition of wellness anymore. To some of us, it means getting that hot yoga sesh in daily, and to others, it means carving out time to treat ourselves to a massage or manicure. As long as you’re actively pursuing wellness—whatever that means to you—you're on the right track.

Our MO has always been about connecting the world to wellness—a term that's seen a lot of change lately. Whether you’re fully embracing the in-person experience or still delighted by the convenience of practicing at-home wellness, the Mindbody app makes it easy for you to book experiences that help you feel like YOU again.
