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.
