“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

“I Am a Warrior of Light”

We encourage and invite you to practice this affirmation with us during these challenging times, with its focus on radiating light to the world.

“God’s light is within me and around me. With the sword of faith in my hand, with the love of God in my heart, I am a warrior of light. I join my brothers and sisters everywhere to overcome fear with faith, hatred with love, and disease with health. We all are warriors of light. We fill the world with God’s light.”

It is especially for these times when we are not getting together in person. Join Nayaswami Devi in practicing it. Click HERE to practice with a video presentation.

“Group meditation is a castle that protects the new spiritual aspirants as well as the veteran meditators. Meditating together increases the degree of Self-Realization of each member of the group by the law of invisible vibratory exchange of group magnetism.” –Paramhansa Yogananda

There will be optional breaks with music and readings.
