Jennifer Kagan is a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor at the Jr. 2 level. She is currently one of only 4 teachers in Mexico who hold this level of certification. Iyengar yoga is well known for its therapeutic applications. Geeta Iyengar, the daughter of BKS Iyengar, opened up the world of yoga to women in her seminal book, Yoga: A Gem for Women. It is from her lifetime of work, study and scholarship that asana and pranayama are applied to help a woman in all stages of her life. Guided by this knowledge, Jennifer will impart the multitude of benefits yoga can offer women who are entering peri-menopause or moving through the menopausal years.
Liza Keogh is a Registered Yoga Elder. She holds certifications in Holistic Pelvic Care© and Fascial Fitness; Hatha, Ashtanga, and Prenatal Yoga; and Ayurvedic Massage. For the past 5 years, Liza has been focusing on yoga and women’s health, developing material for classes and workshops related specifically to pelvic health and awareness. It is her belief that when women can navigate their own bodies with greater ease, they often see improvement in pelvic floor-related issues, can more easily access their creative potential, and have a sense of being more intimately rooted in their own being.
