Welcome to Ananda Rhode Island

Meditation — Yoga Classes — Chanting and Kirtan

“Above all, cultivate the habit of meditation.  This is the inner switch you turn on to connect yourself with the Infinite.”~ Paramhansa Yogananda

Meditation is the heart of our practice at Ananda.  We offer meditation daily. Some meditations are at the end of a Yoga Class, and others are separate programs.  Meditations are guided. No previous experience with meditation is necessary.   See full Meditation Schedule here

Ananda RI is Expanding! 

Ananda Rhode Island’s offer to purchase this magical 1/2 acre behind our church has been accepted! We are now in ownership of this sanctuary. Amidst a sea of green, a small stream flows serenely along side this field. In the future this land will serve a community garden, outdoor yoga/meditation, fire ceremonies, event parking, and more.
