Pain Management with Restorative Yoga & Cannabis Education

Presented by Niki of The Java Yoga Solution and Liv of CannaCentric BC

Our fascia in an extremely strong, connected web of tissue which threads through our entire bodies, surrounding muscle, organs, nerves, bones and even cells. When one spot gets traumatized , the effects of this ripple throughout our whole bodies!   

The fascial web’s natural fluid state is disrupted, causing tightness, hardening and PAIN.  With just a few simple myofascial self-release (MFSR) techniques, we can smooth out traumatized areas, returning this crucial tissue to its normal supple, balanced state.   

This three hour workshop will begin with an introduction to Cannabis and pain management that will give individuals the tools to begin or continue their cannabis journey with more knowledge and specificity on  dosing, effects and interactions for relief of chronic pain conditions. You will then learn ways to manipulate your own fascia using three simple, easily-accessible, everyday tools - a tennis ball, a wooden dowel, and a squash ball.   

Once the fascia is warmed up,  we will  practice a few simple, fully-supported Restorative Yoga poses to quiet the nervous system and prepare us for deep rest to incorporate the changes into the body. A delicious half hour Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep, the deepest, most healing rest you will ever experience!) will follow.   

Each participant will emerge blissful, with a handout so that you can repeat the exercises and Yoga practice at home, as well as essential oil samples. There will be an option to purchase the simple tools, or you can make your own!

Does the event start right at 7:00 pm?
The doors open for the event at 7:00 pm. We anticipate starting the presentation between 7:15 and 7:30 pm.

Who is this event suited for?
This event is designed for individuals with little or no experience with CBD. If you are a experienced cannabis or CBD consumer you are encouraged to attend and bring with you someone brand new to CBD or cannabis. Even if you don't believe you will ever consume cannabis this event is useful to help you understand and guide the choices of your loved ones considering cannabis.

No, there is no cannabis consumption facilitated or supplied at this educational event.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is a parking lot across from Blyssful Alchemy and street parking. The studio is also walking distance from the skytrain station at Main and Terminal.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please email with any questions.

What's the refund policy?
Refunds available up to 1 day before the event, April 15th. After this time no refunds are offered.

Why should I attend this event?
Almost 100 years of cannabis prohibition has meant that the knowledge about the therapeutic properties of cannabis has been kept back from the general public. In order to see cannabis healthily integrated into our society, we each have a role to play in understanding what cannabis is and what are its various uses rather than allowing misinformation and misconceptions to thrive.

Thank you for considering this Flower & Freedom event.

Conscious Sensual Awareness- Exploring the 5 Senses

Lori McCracken

In this Conscious Sensual Awareness Workshop we will be Exploring the 5 Elements (Fire, Earth, Space, Air and Water) and the 5 Senses (Sight, Taste, Sound, Smell and Touch).

Laurie McCracken, Authentic Tantra®* Practitioner will offer ways to awaken your senses and heal your blocks to bliss!

We'll use simple exercises and engaging conversation to have a non-sexual yet fun experience of all 5 senses. Open to men and women, all genders, singles and/or partners.  

*The Authentic Tantra® modality is unique in the world of Western Tantra because these methods are rooted in the Tibetan Five Element Tantric Teachings.

Lori Mccracken

As a former nun, oncology nurse, holistic health coach and energy medicine practitioner, I never imagined I would become a Certified Authentic Tantra® Practitioner and Sexologist! However, it’s a perfect fit!!  I am passionate about raising pleasure consciousness in the world; about supporting the healing and transformation needed to re-unite our sexuality with our spirituality. I know personally the emotional, physical and mental trauma this “disconnect” can create in one’s life. I have also experienced firsthand the profound healing and transformation Authentic Tantra® offers. Working with individuals, couples and groups, I weave the Emotion Code and Body Code (an energy medicine modality) into my Authentic Tantra® coaching sessions, enhancing and personalizing this already profound work even more.  Website:   Email:
