A GUEST'S REVIEW OF
CANNABIS AND YOGA RETREAT
By: Alexandra Fox | Oct, 5th 2015
Twisted Sister’s Alight with Your Heart Retreat starts in the heart of Denver with a tour of one of it’s finest dispensaries: Dank. Your friendly host guides you through a state of the art marijuana cultivation facility where you get to see every facet of the legal cannabis industry. At the end of the tour you get a lovely gift bag and serious discounts on some serious dank!
Then you are on out to the wilderness! This year, the retreat was at a gorgeous and spacious mountain home in Evergreen. All of the ladies showed up and unloaded their cars and all of the weeks groceries and then congregated on a porch overlooking the rockies for a much deserved smoke session.
During this 5 day all inclusive retreat you learn how to incorporate cannabis with your yoga and meditation practices, you explore your life’s purpose, you learn how to breath and heal, and you get to be surrounded by incredible people on the same path of self exploration.
Twisted Sister provides all the meals you could possibly need during the retreat, and accommodates all diet types. Vegetarian, vegan, meat eaters, and gluten free needers! Chef prepared deliciousness awaits you at every meal and it made me want to live my life like I was on vacation all the time!
In addition to yoga and meditation practices, Shelly guided us through exploring our life’s purpose, establishing a personal mission statement, nature hikes, vedic astrology readings and mala making. Oh, and don’t you worry, every day there is plenty of time to smoke the most delicious dank, relax, reflect, and spend time around empowering women who are also on a journey to self healing and exploration.
The mountain hikes were some of my favorite moments. The weather was perfect, the aspens were changing, the company was superb and the destinations were astounding. Shelly packed the most delightful lunches for everyone and took us to some of the most breathtaking locations to practice yoga on the rocks in the sun and guided us through chakra meditations near calming waters.
Even as an absolute beginner of yoga, Shelly made me feel comfortable and right at home. I couldn’t stand the thought of this retreat coming to an end. Everything I learned was exactly what I was looking for in my time of need. I couldn’t have hoped for a more nurturing environment to grow and heal. Please, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of Twisted Sister’s retreats. I will go back every year without hesitation to be surrounded by wild women on a mission to tame their minds, bodies and souls with the use of cannabis and yoga.
Thank you Twisted Sister for one of the most transformational experiences of my life!
