Banyan is clearly an old soul, sent to earth to teach and bring joy to all who know him. Since a very young age he as traveled East and West, studied, and taught. Banyan was at one time a semi-professional athlete, a circus clown, a fire dancer, and a motorcycle racer. He now excels at instructing others in the art of teaching yoga skillfully. His classes have a deep presence and a playful touch, with lots of smiles and laughter, and his forte as a yoga teacher is instructing others how to step into their roles as entertainers in their own classes. Great teachers know how to command attention and make their presence felt; Banyan can give you this gift.
