Zyrka Landwijt

Zyrka's 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. She is registered with the Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour level.

As yoga is meant to be a direct experience, Zyrka strives to provide a sense of accessibility to all students. As a teacher, her intention is to give students the opportunity to explore these practices and integrate these truths into their own lives.
