Located on a 3-acre hilltop in the outskirts of Santa Rosa, California, Ananda Kamalalaya offers beautiful views over the Santa Rosa Valley. Nestled among California oaks are several small cabins, a small cottage and large French garden. Our 500 square foot deck is perfect for outdoor yoga or meditation, and also boasts a small hot tub overlooking the Mayacamas Mountains in the distance. Our gardens provide fresh fruit and vegetables which we use in cooking wholesome vegetarian meals throughout the spring, summer and fall.
The main house is home to our meditation hall, where we host most of our programs. Meals are served in the kitchen, and students can choose to eat in the dining room, living room or outside on the deck.

Gayatri Dawson, RYT
In January of 2006, Gayatri completed the Ananda Seva 200 hour teacher training program. Her style of teaching is eclectic, melding Hatha and Somatic yoga with dance movement principles and Buddhist mindfulness. That may sound like a lot of ingredients in the stew, but it is all beautifully simple on the yoga mat. Most classes begin with centering and breathwork, followed by yoga poses emphasizing body-mind awareness, then end with a short meditation. She is the Yoga Trainings Manager for Ananda Seva Mission.
