Meditation, Yoga, Bringing Spirit to Life
The Ananda Meditation Temple is a sanctuary of inner peace, where “yoga” comes “to life!” Here you will find
- Meditation: Learn it, teach it.
- Yoga: Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga and Kriya Yoga. Find the inner dimension of yoga.
- Spiritual Living Classes, Retreats and Seminars, including Sunday Service
If you are one who steps apart from the crowd, who cherishes truth and high ideals and quiet time for the more important things of life, we think you’ll feel right at home here, at Ananda. Families, couples, singles–all are welcome! Come and find like-minded people. Most of all come and find inner joy!
At the Raja Yoga Intensive, you’ll learn how to meditate, and how to practice the yoga postures in the way they were originally intended: as a priceless aid to inner unfoldment. You’ll thrill to discover how the inspired wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita integrates with the a deeper understanding of the Judao-Christian heritage, and how the science of yoga comes to us through the timeless psycho-spiritual insights of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (wherein is found the Eight-Fold Path known as Ashtanga Yoga).
Let the sound of silence in the trees and the calm waters, as well as the voice of silence in your own soul bring peace, wisdom, and refreshment to body, mind and spirit! Space is limited on this popular annual retreat, so register soon and take advantage of the early registration special through November 8, 2015!

The Yogasana Intensives are a series of 9 workshops designed to explore the physical, astral, and causal aspects of yoga postures. Designed for all levels and for students considering Yoga Teacher Training, each workshop picks up the thread of Hatha Yoga from a specific topic and typically consists of:
- A brief discussion of the topic
- An asana and pranayama routine, designed specifically to explore the topic with our bodies
- A meditation session
At the end of each workshop, we will provide a suggested Yoga routine which you can practice at home to continue your exploration.
