Best yoga class!
Every year I look forward to Jim’s classes under the palapa. He is the best. He accommodates all levels and focuses on alignment. He is serious about yoga but had a sense of humor toward life.

Great Private Class!
I absolutely recommend a class with Jim. He was very accommodating and booked a beautiful studio right next to our rental house for our private class of 6. He was also very responsive and easy to coordinate with.

Man is he flexible! He's a very experienced yogi who was able to adapt the class to match our intermediate skill level.

Thanks Jim!

Bless you Jim
We only discovered Jim on our second last day, and it was my biggest regret.

His yoga class in Don Pedros palapa was the highlight of my vacation. Sublime pratice, divine location❤️

An awesome experience!!!
I've been living in Sayulita , in the winter months, for five years and I am probably one of Jim's most dedicated students.
I attend almost every class that he instructs in the palapa and throughly enjoy every minute of it.
The view is so amazing with the breeze usually picking up just as we begin.To do yoga in this space with an instructor like Jim is so awesome and I feel privileged and so lucky to have this experience. His vast knowledge and individual attention is unbelievable and there is nothing that comprares to it. What more.can I say, a very special instructor in a very special place.

The Master
Yoga with Jim is truly a positive and an enjoyable learning experience. Throughout his classes, Jim demonstrates his love and passion for yoga not only through his wit and humor, but also his knowledge of anatomy and body types. As with any effective instructor, Jim attends to the needs of his students through his interactions and connections with each individual. His classes do not encompass a “one size fits all” approach, but rather a tailored individualistic style. He makes options available for each yoga pose that will benefit any beginning yogi while challenging the most advanced of practitioners.

The Best of the Best
I have been visiting Sayulita for many years and enjoying Jim Gallas's yoga,
in fact, it is one of the reasons I like to visit Sayulita. His approach to yoga is most informed, safe, fun and warm- hearted. He teaches to the least and most experienced of participants.
My only complaint is that he doesn't live near Vancouver so I can attend his classes regularly.

Best yoga in town!
If you want yoga with alignment that helps you find the right place for your body in this moment, there is no better place than Jim's yoga classes. I have studied with him for 10 years, and have attended all 9 intensive workshops. He teaches in a manner that is serious about yoga but with a style of humor and grace. And the palapa is THE most perfect setting for ease of mind and body!

Expert Introduction to YOGA
My husband and I were in Sayulita for an extended period this winter (Jan - Mar 2016) and we wanted to try out yoga. We met Jim by chance at the palapa one day and asked him about private classes. He conducted a thorough interview, and decided to work with us. The next 10 weeks were wonderful. Jim dealt expertly with my husband's health conditions and worked around my recent knee operation, all the while introducing us to the joys and benefits of yoga. My curiosity about yoga quickly became a deep appreciation for the discipline and its welcome results. Jim fed my appetite to learn more in two important ways: (a) he pushed me at my pace to get stronger faster; and (b) he fed my curiosity (and constant questions) with technical information, books, and other references. Instead of just learning poses, I learned what each pose was doing for me. My appreciation grew even more when I returned to the States and went to my first, group yoga class ever. I was extremely pleased to find that I fit right in !!!

Alignment, alignment, alignment and love of yoga!
I've been taking yoga classes with Jim for 10+ years now. I've learned so much from him about the correct way to do poses so you don't hurt yourself. He's extremely knowledgeable and caring. After doing yoga with him during the winter months, my body feels different - healthy and nimble. All my small aches and pains (lower back, tight hips, hamstrings, etc) simply disappear. He's also a great massage person. Because he know so much about anatomy, his body work is healing and energizing. Best of all, you will not find a better yoga location in Sayulita- overlooking the ocean! Yoga with Jim is one of the reasons I love Sayulita so much.
