Eliza Maroney is not your average yogi. It doesn’t take more than attending one of her Bend + Blaze yoga classes to see, or smell, why her classes are different from the rest. Incorporating cannabis into her flow has set this San Francisco-based yogi apart from her peers and the industry is beginning to take notice.
A passionate activist in the cannabis community, Eliza has spent the better part of a decade honing her craft as a certified yoga instructor and dance teacher throughout the Bay Area. Her passion for holistic plant medicine and yoga was ignited when she personally experienced its benefits after years of suffering from anxiety and depression.
In 2016, Eliza created Bend + Blaze, a class where yogis could openly ingest cannabis before beginning their vinyasa flow. Since then, Bend + Blaze has become a favorite monthly gathering of open-minded individuals seeking relief from mental and physical stress in a warm and welcoming environment.
