]At Toastyy, yoga is one of our favorite ways to relieve stress while helping us discover our best, shining, radiant selves. Many turn to wellness practices such as mindful meditation/yoga to calm themselves, while reconnecting with their bodies and the universe. To us Toastyy Babes, it puts an emphasis on the “Out with the Old, in with the New” lifestyle!
In one of our previous blogs, we talked about the power of hemp for women. In this blog we’ll touch on how implementing CBD products into your yoga routine can boost your self-care experience.
CBD and Yoga: A Perfect Pairing
It’s safe to say: everyone experiences stress in some form throughout the day, and it has been shown that more and more people use CBD to treat it. But when you combine CBD with yoga, it could help reduce stress, improve your emotional well-being, while also creating a better mind-body connection.
Yoga requires the body to respond with increased flexibility and fluidity, with a well-balanced equilibrium. No matter how intense or how simple it seems, getting in a peaceful, relaxed state is important when adapting to new body movements.
Let’s take a look at some of the science behind the benefits of CBD that could get us in a better state of mind-body consciousness before, during, and after exercise such as yoga.
Improving the Mind & Body Connection with Cannabidiol(CBD)
The Endocannabinoid System is a bridge between the body and mind. Understanding this system is vital in seeing the “mechanism” that connects brain activity and bodily function. Many use cannabis extracts to create a better balance in their ECS which can in turn help with focus, strength, and recovery aspects.
It has been hypothesized that the ECS affects not only our recovery and healing processes, but also plays a substantial role in the potential treatment of stress. This is why having a balanced ECS is important when doing physical activities such as yoga.
Enhancing Focus & Concentration with CBD
Yoga calls upon us to reclaim control of our minds; to become free from the day’s pressures and stresses, while paying attention to the present moment. This requires focus.
Initial research has shown that CBD is involved in the functions of key neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine—both of which play huge roles in our ability to remain focused.
CBD for Reducing Inflammation, Easier Movement, & Healing
Many studies have shown that yoga can slow cellular aging, inflammation, and improve overall brain functioning. If you’re experiencing inflammation or pain that dissuades you from practicing yoga in the first place, CBD could be that extra push to prepare for such an activity.
CBD has been studied as a potential anti-inflammatory agent as well as being effective for pain and recovery, shown again and again to reduce inflammation in areas where relief is needed most.
CBD could also help to alleviate muscle tension/pain, and improve sleep duration. All of these factors will keep you fresh, rested, and ready for your yoga sessions!
