Meditation and Yoga

At the heart of Ananda lies the daily practice of Yogananda’s teachings on meditation and yoga.

Yoga is not a belief system, but an art and science that offers practical methods for harmonizing body and mind, and taking us deeper into Spirit.

The integration of yogic principles with daily life forms the foundation of our lives. It is our joy to share these teachings with you.

Ananda Course in Self-Realization

A Comprehensive Home Study Course in Yoga and Meditation, Based on the Teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.

This is by far the most comprehensive manual on yoga and meditation available today.

You will learn how to apply the ancient principles of yoga to every aspect of your life: diet, health, philosophy, lifestyle, and meditation. In addition, you will learn a system of yoga postures appropriate for any age or physical condition.

This course also serves as a preparation to learning Kriya Yoga, the technique which Yogananda called the “most effective, and most scientific avenue of approach to the Infinite.”
