Miriam Zernis (Sita) is an internationally certified Classical Yoga Master of the Sivananda lineage, who has been practicing for over 20 years. Her open level class style is simple and informative for students to enjoy not only the physical benefits yoga has to offer, but to also explore evolving on the spiritual and emotional levels. She has logged over 1000 hours of yoga training to date in the US, Canada and India and has taught yoga, breath work, meditation, yogic philosophy and mantra chanting at yoga studios and yoga teacher training programs in Westchester and Fairfield Counties since 2001.
Miriam is also a kirtan presenter and has been introducing and sharing the practice of devotional chanting and sacred music in a joyful, welcoming way since 2008 in CT, NY, CA, AZ and Canada. Rather than offer a performance, her group, Sita’s Light facilitates a deep, heart opening, blissful experience for all. She often plays live music for classes of all traditions as a way of sharing the peaceful, healing power of sound and vibration.
Miriam is also a Reiki Master Teacher, graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Interfaith Minister.
