Franny’s Farm launches “Toke with a Goat” yoga/CBD activity

Press release from Franny’s Farm:

Anyone who spends time with animals knows that it just plain feels good! But scientists have proven that this isn’t just in our heads. Animals have a measurable effect on our physiology. Interacting with animals can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels; it can reduce anxiety and depression; improve sleeping habits, memory and mobility; and it may also increase survival rates after life-threatening diseases.

And anyone who has taken a yoga class knows that yoga can make us feel good, too. The benefits of yoga (supported by science) include increased flexibility and strength; decreased stress hormone levels; improved respiratory, cardio and circulatory health; and more.

So, If the words “calming and gently relaxing” are sounding a lot like your favorite yoga practice, that’s no coincidence. As many yogis are discovering, CBD products and yoga go together like baby goats and backflips: Two great ideas that are wonderful alone, but totally dynamite together. Because using CBD won’t get you high, it’s entirely safe and acceptable to use during a yoga practice or any other regular activities. Benefits of using CBD include:

Pain relief
Relief from anxiety and depression
Relief from overthinking
Decreased inflammation
Increased mood

CBD is a natural fit for a gentle yoga class, but it can also enhance your experience in a more upbeat, quicker-paced flow-style or vinyasa class, especially if you’re prone to a wandering mind. How often have you been in a yoga class and thought, “I am supposed to be Zen! I just wish I could silence these thoughts!” It’s hard to automatically turn off your overthinking brain simply because you’ve hit the mat. CBD helps.

Please join Franny and her loving herd of goats Saturday, February 23rd from 3:30 – 4:30pm on Franny’s Farm to do just that. “Get Zen with Goats!” Yogi guests will have the opportunity to sample several of Franny’s Farmacy CBD products before, during and after the beginners style goat yoga class.

Tickets: $20 (Kids under 8 are free!)
