Review from E Ness: 'This DVD is not only a great introduction to the practice of yoga, but will provide the time and space for experienced practitioners to go deeper into the poses. Zyrka has obviously been well trained and the whole practice comes from a very solid place. She even includes inverted poses which are absent in many yoga DVDs. This is also an excellent DVD for those who are interested in learning vinyasa yoga, but need a bridge to a more active practice. If you want to deepen your yoga practice, this is the DVD for you.'
Instructor Zyrka Landwijts introduction to yoga began in 1999. After exposure to a variety of methods and styles of yoga, Zyrka began an intensive year-long teacher-apprenticeship program at the Saraswati River Yoga School and began her teaching career in 2002. She is trained in yoga philosophy, mantra, meditation, pranayama and asana by renowned yogini of the Bhairavi Maha Yoga Tradition, Parvathi Nanda Nath Saraswati (Kirin Mishra). Zyrka frequently travels back to the east coast to continue studying with Parvathi as well as other teachers at the Saraswati River Yoga School.
Zyrka's classes are taught in the Saraswati River Yoga style: a flowing class linking asanas (postures) with the breath, incorporating elements of chanting, pranayama, meditation and deep relaxation. A hallmark of this method is the attention to detail and deepening of awareness through hands-on assists.
