Satsang with Swami Kriyananda Series
Next satsang: Visits to Saints of India

Wednesday, April 14
7 – 8p, online on Zoom

Swami Kriyananda wrote 150 books and it would take a person a very long time to read all of these treasures against time. So our members are participating in these one-hour Zoom classes, “Satsang with Swami Kriyananda” during which each class presents a summary of the highlights of one of Swamiji’s books.

Presented by various Ananda members these presentations are inspired yet informal and a great way to meet others of like-mind. more

Ananda Yoga for Beginners
MOVED TO APRIL, exact date TBD
10:30a – 12:00p, online on Zoom

Class size is limited, so please register early!

It can be intimidating to attend a regular yoga class for the first time.  We may think, “but I can’t touch my toes!”  Yoga is not about touching your toes!  Nor is yoga about bending your body into a pretzel shape.  Yoga truly is for everybody and the only yoga posture you “fail” at is the one you don’t do. How your poses look outwardly is not the measure of your success.  You can receive great benefit even if your poses don’t look like anyone else’s.  Progress in yoga is directional!  It’s all a matter of taking your own next steps.  This class will help you get started. more
