Yoga teacher, Ganja Yoga™
Jess Dugan was the first teacher to expand Ganja Yoga™ into a new city. Her classes have been featured internationally and are praised by a returning student base. Jess’s work in cannabis began as employee number one at The Arcview Group – the first cannabis investment firm, where she helped facilitate the funding of more than 60 companies with a capital raise of $50+ million and an additional $750k for drug policy reform initiatives.
While stewarding Arcview’s investor community, she launched a business-mindfulness initiative to help combat the heavy demands felt across the emerging sector. Jess’s commitment to wellness in the workplace inspired the Reflections Retreat, a four-day event for cannabis executives focused on personal growth for professional development. Most recently, Jess completed a month-long intensive with ayahuasca in Peru. She is currently studying the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition and Massage Therapy in Denver, CO. Prior to her work in venture capital, she ran a conscious-living blog dedicated to the appreciation of live music and covered events internationally.
