Who is Dee Dussault? “I am the creator of Ganja Yoga, a yoga practitioner of twenty-two years, and an international speaker. My classes have been profiled in the New York Times and many other publications.
I was the first yoga teacher outside of ancient India to offer public cannabis-enhanced yoga, and one of the first naked yoga instructors in North America. My clients know me for being playful and accepting, deeply spiritual while solidly down to earth.
I’ve taught thousands of couples and singles in the Bay Area, Portland, Toronto, Vancouver, Black Rock City (Burning Man), Copenhagen, and Costa Rica, – helping them to connect to their radiant embodied selves.
I carry an honors degree in Sexuality Studie and an additional Sexuality Certificate. I’ve attended relationship counseling trainings with both Harville Hendrix’ Imago System and Interchange Counseling. My yoga training was with Ananda Shakti, of Sananda Yoga in Toronto, in the tantric tradition of Swami Satyananda of Bihar, India. It is a 500-hour Yoga-Alliance certified certificate. I am also trained in workplace wellness, stress-reduction and relaxation for the office place.
I have several hundreds of hours of attendance at trainings and personal development workshops, with thousands more on personal exploration and journeying. As a result of this experience, I now love to take care of people and help them to feel comfortable as they explore and expand, – in relaxation, sex energy, cannabis consciousness, touch, or some combination.
I love teaching tantra as a body, mind, and spirit practice, with equal emphasis on all three. I think yoga has been overly desexualized, and tantra overly sexualized, both as marketing tactics that do not serve us.
I teach a sensual, mindful, relaxation-based yoga, and offer coaching and bodywork experience and instruction from this realm.
Whether cannabis-enhanced or sober, talk therapy or somatic, pragmatic aims or spiritual, I love creating customized private experiences and classes for bliss. When not writing and teaching, I spend a lot of time enjoying nature, my husband, and practicing what I preach!”
