In this book, yoga teacher Dee Dussault brings the ancient tradition of using cannabis to enhance spiritual practice to a western audience. She describes the act of Ganja Yoga as a ceremony that makes conscious relaxation an intentional ritual that can be improved upon with practice. 

Dee Dussault is a certified yoga instructor and the first person to bring cannabis-enhanced yoga classes to North America. In Ganja Yoga, Dee walks readers through the considerations and best practices for introducing cannabis into your yoga practice, or infusing yoga into your smoking routine. It's equally useful for those who want to attend classes or use the book in the comfort of their own homes. 

Ganja Yoga will assist readers in how to:

• Reap the benefits of profound relaxation

• Assume an altered state in a safe, energizing way

• Deepen the spiritual practice of yoga

• Reconnect with the body using ancient techniques

• Select the best setting, time, method of consumption, strains, poses and breathing techniques to ensure an excellent experience.

Ganja Yoga isn't just a guide to mixing cannabis and exercise, it's a lifestyle practice for a more stress-free, harmonious world.
