Gita (Lynn Kennedy)                                                                                 


AYT-L2 E-RYT 500

Gita means "song."                                                                                                                                      

Gita (Lynn Kennedy) has been a student of Satyananda Yoga since 1998. She credits the Satyananda discipline with helping her overcome a nagging back injury. Lynn’s yoga teacher, Swami Atmarupa, encouraged her to become a yoga teacher. In 2001 Lynn travelled to India with Atmarupa and received Mantra Diksha and her spiritual name, Gita, from Swami Niranjanananda in Munger, India. Gita continued her studies of Satyananda Yoga. She is a level 2 accredited Satyananda Yoga® Teacher and holds a Diploma of Satyananda Yoga Teaching.

Gita joined The Peace Corps in 2008 and taught Satyananda Yoga in the Philippines to Filipino locals and fellow Peace Corps volunteers alike. She was able to combine service and yoga and witnessed the powerful impact.

In addition, Gita has taught Satyananda Yoga in schools, centers, the workplace, in social service programs and in therapy. Most recently she has seen the positive results of Satyananda Yoga while working with incarcerated youth in correctional facilities.

Gita serves as the Manager for the Atma Center. She is committed to the awareness and growth of Satyananda Yoga throughout North America in order to enhance the well being of individuals and society.
