Yoga + MMJ for Veterans

Two-part series of FREE online classes blending Yoga practice and medicinal marijuana on November 9 and 12 at 7:30pm – 8:15pm

Join us for two FREE online YOGA classes, blending medical marijuana and the therapeutic practice of YOGA, geared specifically toward veterans and those suffering from chronic pain and/or PTSD. These sessions will additionally feature Ron Millward of Balanced Veterans, a non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans’ health and mental wellness.
SESSION 1

Yoga + MMJ for PTSD

November 9 – 7:30pm – 8:15pm

The effects of stress and trauma can continue to affect us long after the stressor is removed. PTSD is the result of stress, trauma, and their accompanying emotions being stored in the body and not fully processed. This session invites you to reconnect with your body and tend to the nervous system. Learn a simple sequence of poses and proper breathing techniques that, if performed regularly, can help manage common PTSD symptoms like anxiety and depression.
SESSION 2
Yoga + MMJ for Chronic Pain

November 12 – 7:30pm – 8:15pm

Chronic pain can be debilitating for most. Studies suggest that yoga and meditation can help relieve symptoms of chronic pain through the use of simple, gentle stretches and breath awareness techniques that can help to restore lost mobility and ease pain-related tension.

About OHM

Much of what we experience is the result of electrical impulses interpreted by the brain. OHM is the measure and symbol of electrical resistance, as well as the sound of an ancient meditative chant.

OHM is now our newest vaporizable medical marijuana blend, specially designed to warm the body while focusing the mind.

This enhancement to slowing down and finding one’s center can help provide resistance to overactive thoughts and physical feedback often experienced by patients.

Event Description

Join us for two FREE online YOGA classes, blending medical marijuana and the therapeutic practice of YOGA, geared specifically toward veterans and those suffering from chronic pain and/or PTSD. These sessions will additionally feature Ron Millward of Balanced Veterans, a non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans’ health and mental wellness.

Our certified Yoga instructor and PA MMJ patient, Nicole McLane, will take participants through sessions tailored to the medical marijuana patient, with tips and tricks for safely and effectively mixing two of the most popular ways of obtaining relief.

This series will also feature the NEW medical marijuana blend, Ohm by Ilera Healthcare. This product was developed with Yoga practice in mind, featuring a unique blend of cannabinoids and terpenes that warm the body while focusing the mind.

Nicole McLane began exploring meditation in 1999, tentatively at first, looking for relief from the anxiety brought on by her hectic urban life.

She began reading books on Buddhism, some poetry by Thich Nat Hanh. It took some time, but she finally became able to sit down, grow quiet, and begin to study herself.
