Ganja Yoga, Tarot Workshops, and More This Weekend In The Bay Area

Virtual is the new reality and taking the dog out for a walk has become a moment of joy.

We by nature are social creatures and not even a pandemic can stop us from connecting and sharing the human experience. As our new normal sets in, online experiences and events are becoming more important, allowing us to tap into our community collectives, support our neighbors, and keep ourselves entertained. I can’t wait until I can start writing about in-person events, but until then let’s log on and tune in. See you online Bay Area!


When: FRIDAY April 17th  11:30am – 12:30pm

Where: Instagram Live / @ganjayoga

411: Get ready for 4/20 with some stoney yoga. Bay area author and instructor Dee Dussault will lead an online session based on her best-selling book “Ganja Yoga”. These sessions are designed for all levels, body types, and abilities. If you get too baked and miss this class, don’t worry – you can catch the next one on Instagram Live every Tuesday at 6:30pm and Friday at 11:30am. We could all use some deep relaxation right about now, so get out your matt and roll up a joint (optional) – Namaste! // Free to attend, donations appreciated
