Join Lila Lolling, founder of Deaf Yoga Foundation, for a 4-day yoga retreat presented in American Sign Language. The Sivananda Yoga Ranch has been offering classical yoga teacher training incorporating ASL as well as workshops and retreats for the deaf community and ASL interpreters since 2007. We believe Yoga and sign language pair well together. A quite popular course, it’s an excellent opportunity each year for both student and teachers to deepen their practice and to share in the joy of good community.
Join Lila Lolling and Jessica “Kalyani” Frank, both DeafYoga Foundation co-stewards, for a 4-day yoga retreat presented in American Sign Language (ASL). This retreat is a unique experience for you to dive deeper into your Self, your connection with others, and your understanding of Yoga. The daily schedule will include yoga classes, philosophy workshops, and group sharing. Open to all who are fluent in ASL.
Join like-minded people, who share a common language, as we join hearts and hands in an exploration of life, joy and yoga. This beautiful offering is tailored for Deaf & ASL-fluent yoga practitioners and teachers, however previous yoga experience is not required.
