Women of the Resistance

img_1197Jehan is a scary feminist. If you don’t believe me, ask her. She’ll be happy to explain why.

An athlete, artist and producer, Jehan Izhar, 32, owns a studio called Jypsy’s Performing Arts, where she teaches exotic forms of yoga, dance and healing arts. Her stage name is Modern Jypsy, but most of her friends and clients call her J.

J was raised Muslim with her older sister in a nuclear family of mixed heritage: her late mother was from England and her father is from Pakistan. She identifies as a business owner, performer, feminist and Muslim-American. Jypsy’s caters to women of all ages and backgrounds and is a safe space where you can “better your body and express yourself creatively.”
