Ananda is a global movement based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Ananda was founded in 1968 by Yogananda’s direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda.
Paramhansa Yogananda, 1893 – 1952, was the first yoga master of India to take up permanent residence in the West. Yogananda’s teachings embrace the truths that underlie all the great religions. People from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed at Ananda.
Swami Kriyananda, (J. Donald Walters) 1926 – 2013, the founder of Ananda, was a direct disciple of the great Indian master, Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. Swami Kriyananda has founded intentional, spiritual communities in America, Europe and India, which have grown and flourished, offering hope for a better world.
Ananda members and students tend to be compassionate, and ardent supporters of conscious, healthy, sustainable, spiritual living. Differing points of view, backgrounds, and nationalities can be found here and are typically expressed articulately, respectfully, thoughtfully, and, perhaps most importantly, with a desire to both share and learn. Expand the 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, for community, yoga and meditation classes, to experience the joy of your own being.
