WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Melanie Adams is a student at Clark University who works at a pot dispensary and teaches yoga as side gigs. Now, she's merging the fields.
"Wouldn't it be fun if we could all smoke a joint together before we started our yoga class?"
After rolling up a joint, Melanie and her students roll out their mats and let the good times roll with 'Ganja Yoga.'
Melanie says the cannabis is helpful for her and her students when it comes to loosening up, feeling comfortable and focusing on mindfulness.
"All of the feelings that you carry with you in your daily life, it's a way to put them on pause and focus on the sensation of just living within your own body—if only for a time," she said.
