Inner Renewal Week is an annual event held each winter at Ananda Village. Each morning is filled with classes by some of our most knowledgeable and experienced teachers.

If you would like to join us for the next Inner Renewal Week, you can sign up at The Expanding Light Retreat. If you are not able to come in person, we also broadcast many of the classes live, which you can watch through Online with Ananda. Below are some of the classes from our 2021 Inner Renewal Week, “Living the Yogic Lifestyle,” as well as previous years.
