Yoga Retreat

Jen Kagan and Virginia Shou are excited to join forces to create a supportive, transformative weekend of yoga for deaf students.

Jen Kagan is an Iyengar yoga Instructor Level 3, a Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, and a certified Ayurveda Health Coach. She is also a RID-certified interpreter for more than 25 years. She initiated the first Iyengar yoga class in ASL at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York and has led three Deaf Yoga Retreats at Heathen Hill upstate New York and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Virginia Shou has been practicing yoga under Lippy Orem at YogaWorks starting 2005 until she met Jen Kagan through a retreat for the Deaf at Heathen Hills in 2010. Even though Virginia practiced yoga for 5 years, she had to start from the beginning and learn the foundation of Iyengar Yoga. That's when she started to enjoy practicing the Iyengar method ever since. She is excited to co-host the 2nd retreat for the Deaf with a certified Iyengar teacher, also a certified ASL interpreter, Jen Kagan.
