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

“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
