"Anamaya is perfection in paradise"

I came here to heal and I saw a profound impact. Janet Dailey was the instructor for the week, and she was amazing. The staff treats you like family guests. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I love Anamaya and hope to return someday.

Amazing Food! Everything was very nice and clean, very beautiful structures and accommodations, breathtaking view. Great YTT, I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with Banyan Gallagher. He is an awesome and wildly funny teacher.

"Great first time experience"

The atmosphere at Anamaya was all aroun spectacular would do this again though pricey it's worth every last penny! The service was impeccable I work in fine dining and everyone was on point remembering specifics and making us feel at home. It was amazing to be a part of a family and stay at someone's home :)

After this training with Banyan I feel the desire to project not only my voice but also my character.

Banyan has wonderful and precious knowledge to share; he swings seamlessly from the detailed, anatomic, and structural asana breakdown to a full submersion in yoga’s spiritual roots. From years of yoga practice and deep studies, and a humble, eloquent, and playful personality, he can distill workshops full of ease, thought provoking debates, and lots of smiles.

I learned to respect my body for what it is and where it’s at, and learned to believe in myself enough to show others the way.

Banyan sees the beauty in your tight hips and shoulders, and he will not allow you to be inhibited by these special features of yours. My poses look quite different from the magazines and now I feel lovely in them. Banyan taught us so much about yoga, but most importantly, he taught us how to play.

Wow, where to start? J Banyan is an old soul that resides in the fountain of youth. His class is a perfect balance of playfulness and tradition, innovative modern practice and ancient knowledge. Somehow he manages to balance on a revolving atlas, whilst juggling fire sticks and reciting potent mantras. His energy and enthusiasm constantly brings you higher, and makes you realize everything is possible with consistency, dedication and focus, and everything is worthwhile when it is punctuated with laughter, humility, kindness, and an open heart. Banyan is a wonderful teacher - a deep source of knowledge, life experience and a truly open loving spirit. Thank you for this gift!
