About Sita



Miriam Zernis (vocals ~ harmonium) has been leading heart-opening kirtan and sacred music events with great joy since 2007 in NY, CT, Costa Rica, Canada, and Europe.  

Her inspiration in opening to the Divinity of chanting comes from satsangs at the Sivananda ashrams and years of traveling with devotional music masters Deva Premal, Miten, and Manose, as well as time spent with Krishna Das, the late Shyamdas, Wah!, Snatam, and GuruGanesha Singh.  

Miriam has been practicing classical yoga since 1994 and teaching since 2001. She is an internationally certified Sivananda Yoga Acharya, Reiki Master, and a certified Holistic Health Coach.  She stepped onto the Bhakti Yoga path in 2006, retiring from a 21-year career as an ABC News editor/writer.
