Gita Zember, RYT 500

About The Teacher

When Gita Zember chants you can feel the devotion through her voice and heart. She chants as much as she can in and around DC, MD, and VA, and occasionally tours abroad. She started chanting when it became an integral part of her work with children with special needs and hasn’t been able to stop. She never had a harmonium lesson or a workshop on how to lead kirtan but was led by her heart to just do it and see if anyone showed up. Over 8 years of leading kirtan, creating the DC Kirtan Festival, touring with Swami Gurusharanananda from India, and chanting more than ever, Gita wants to share her love of chanting with you! She has been teaching Yoga for over 15 years and working with a wide variety of populations, including many with special needs and chronic illness, athletes, stressed teens, musicians, and those who never thought they could do Yoga. She currently lives at Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville and is so very excited to be developing a Bhakti Yoga teacher training.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To give my ego a break from all these construction projects. Layth

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
