At SyteraYoga, our mission is for you to have the most inspiring and rewarding yoga experience you’ve ever had. To make that a reality, we’ve built a team of talented and experienced yoga teachers who have more than 100 years of combined experience teaching yoga.
SyteraYoga is yoga as a lifestyle, not just “taking a class at the gym.” We emphasize hands-on guidance instead of “mirror my poses.” We meet every yoga student where you’re at — without pressure or judgement — with diverse yoga classes for all skill levels.
Ultimately, SyteraYoga is about helping each student realize their greater potential. We call it “Find Your Shine.”
I enjoying helping people experience the confidence, well-being, and joy that comes from a sustained yoga practice. When a student contacts me with feedback about how great they're feeling or how much I have helped with some issue they're having, it's a wonderful feeling of purpose in my work.

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Sytera began practicing Iyengar yoga when she was eighteen. A year later, she broke her leg in a rock-climbing accident. The injury left her in a thigh-high cast for months but strengthened her resolve to recover, and catalyzed her interest in yoga and holistic health.
While earning a degree in art history and studio art at the University of Maryland, Sytera found expression through Kuchipudi (coo-ja-poo-dee) -- a form of classical Indian dance. As a member of the Devi Dance Theatre, she performed Indian dance at the Kennedy Center, Dance Place, the GWU Lisner Auditorium, the Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and elsewhere.
Through her experience with yoga, Sytera has received wonderful blessings of health, peace, and joy. Part of this joy is helping people, through yoga, cultivate such benefits in their own lives -- developing awareness of and compassion towards oneself, and releasing tension in the body. She works with various groups and individuals, from teaching a troop of 8-year old Brownies to teaching inmates at a correctional facility in Arlington, Virginia.
Now, Sytera owns and operates SyteraYoga in downtown McLean, VA, which offers group yoga classes to students of all skill levels. In addition, SyteraYoga specializes in private, personalized yoga classes for individuals, couples, and groups.
