Welcome to Ananda
Located in the beautiful Umbrian hills near Assisi, Italy, the Ananda Center offers many programs based on the principles of Kriya Yoga and Self-realization, which were brought to the Western world by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi. His direct disciple Swami Kriyananda, the founder of Ananda communities in the United States, Europe and India, has continued to develop and spread these universal and practical teachings around the world.
“Meditation is the highest form of activity a man can perform.”
Meditation brings many benefits: on a spiritual level it helps you to experience God, at the psychological and physical level it has positive effects on the brain and nervous system. With regular practice you can experience deeper peace and more joy in your heart and your life.
Ananda offers many courses on meditation, from the basics to higher techniques of Kriya Yoga. Click here
