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!

breast cancer awareness month
Fitness
Published Tuesday Sep 27, 2022 by Bree Lewis

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
