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!

Unexpected Looks and Learnings from 2020

To put it bluntly—2020 was a real bummer. When we entered the year, we all had that “20/20 vision” mindset of making the year one of travel, joy, discovering new hobbies, and conquering our fitness goals. But come March, that vision became a blurry mess of sheltering-in-place and being forced to throw our normal routines and our aspirations out the window.  

Who would have thought that something like getting a haircut would be off-limits? Or that those monthly massages wouldn’t be around to help us unwind? 2020 forced us to get creative, and you blew us away with your stick-to-itiveness. 

We recently polled you on Instagram to see which beauty and wellness services you missed the most and how you’ve re-vamped your self-care routines to stay sane during this train wreck of a year. And I must say, as I read your responses in my sweats, rocking the messiest top knot of all time, I definitely felt like I need to take it up a notch when it comes to getting ready for the workday.  

Seriously—an alarming number of you have been on point when it comes to sticking to your daily morning routines and actually wearing work clothes while on Zoom calls. Kudos to you!  

Curious to see what the takeaways were from our Instagram poll? Keep reading.

Takeaway #1: All beauty services are missed equally 
beauty services missed 2020

According to your responses, you're all sick of your exposed roots and split ends equally, with 51% of you preferring to get a haircut and 49% opting for hair color. The numbers were also pretty close when it came to your nails—with 52% of you opting for a manicure over a pedicure. Due to the pandemic, the state of the beauty industry has been on a rollercoaster of openings and closings—and they need our help and support now more than ever. If you happen to live in an area where you’re able to enjoy beauty services, make sure you show your stylist or nail artist a little bit of extra love when tipping them.  

 

Takeaway #2: You miss massages, but are ready for touchless spa treatments 
touchless spa treatments

Anybody who knows me will tell you the thing I miss the most is getting a monthly massage—and 71% of you seem to agree. With most of us working from our beds or hunched over our laptops on our couches, our posture (if not our comfort) has taken a serious hit. While most of us either live in an area where massages are off-limits or we just don’t feel safe going in for one quite yet, there are some touchless spa treatments you're ready to try.  

  • 69% of you are interested in trying an infrared sauna treatment—no surprise during the cold winter months. This type of treatment uses light to directly warm your body to increase heart rate, help you sweat out the bad stuff (like all that wine we’ve been drinking), and treat chronic health problems.  
  • 31% of you are willing to brave the cold of cryotherapy. These sessions aim to decrease inflammation and speed up recovery time after an intense workout by standing in an extremely cold chamber of liquid nitrogen or dry, fresh, oxygenated air. 
  • 52% of you are down to try out salt caves. Turns out, Himalayan pink salt isn’t just for you fancy home chefs out there. By sitting in an entire room made of this salt, you can relax and potentially treat respiratory and skin issues.   
  • 48% of you are ready to suit up for a float tank sesh. If you love meditating, this is the perfect touchless spa treatment to try. Float tanks are filled with body-temperature saltwater—and they’re lightless and soundproof. You guys—I’ve tried this and it’s definitely the kind of R&R we all need right now.  
Takeaway #3: Your self-care routines are admirable 

Call it wishful thinking, but I was fully expecting most of you to say, “Zoom camera off” as your go-to beauty tip—but I guess that’s just me. Instead, you've all been pretty consistent with your morning routines—working out, showering, and dressing like you're actually going into an office. Some of you are even going the extra mile and putting on a red lip and some earrings. I’m taking notes.  

And even though this year’s challenges put a damper on our normal routines, it's inspired us to get creative with our skincare regimen. Some of you have added new serums and masks to your skincare arsenal, while others have tried out at-home facials for that quarantine glow. By far, one of the most popular answers was the incorporation of Gua Sha to help detoxify, brighten, and tighten your skin.  

This year was one for the books. But I think it made us realize there is always wellness—and that taking care of ourselves is crucial. If you're in an area where in-house beauty services are an option, book that appointment (if you feel safe to do so). If your only option right now is to stay at home, keep carrying on with your feel-good, at-home routines.
