Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Ananda was founded in 1968 by Yogananda’s direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda.
Yogananda’s teachings embrace the truths that underlie all the great religions. People from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed at Ananda.
Expand your sense of harmony in your life through ancient and effective techniques including meditation, Kriya Yoga, spiritually oriented Hatha Yoga, community, and divine friendship.
We invite you to join us at our temple, yoga classes, meditation, and community to experience the joy of your own being.
All Are Welcome
Ananda’s primary goal is to help people achieve Self-realization, a state of consciousness that comes through shedding all outward self-definitions. Ananda has, therefore, created communities and centers that welcome all sincere seekers, regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability. We are committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone to pursue the search for God.
