Spiritual Community

Experience the loving and supportive vibrations of Ananda Village –  a cooperative spiritual community of more than 50 years. 

Ananda Village is situated on 900 acres amidst the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in northern California. Today, over 200 yoga and meditation practitioners reside here, including adults and children of all ages.

Paramhansa Yogananda often predicted that world brotherhood colonies, based on the twin principles of “simple living and high thinking,” would be the social pattern for the future.

Uma & Janaka

Hello friends! We are excited to be a part of this wonderful program. 

As your hosts, we will be living on site, leading classes and helping to prepare meals and directing activities as well as being supportive friends! We were both fortunate to have been introduced to Yoga and Meditation in our early teens and have now been on the path for more than a decade. We are now looking forward to helping other individuals take the next step on their chosen path.

We have been living in Ananda Village for 5 years and are newly married! We have experienced firsthand the blessings of being surrounded by other like minded individuals who are striving to live their highest ideals. As a new couple we have also seen the great benefits of being with a partner who is serious about their own search for Truth and Inner Freedom

The love and support we have felt from each other and our community has  deepened our meditations and expanded our hearts to experience greater levels of Peace and Joy. We both feel very blessed by what we have received and have the desire to share with others who might also benefit! We would love to connect if you have any questions!
