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

Important Update for Ananda Rhode Island

The CDC has recently issued new guidance stating that in order to halt the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, masks should be worn indoors in public spaces in areas of substantial community spread.  Washington County is now classified as one of these areas.

Because of this, Ananda RI will be requiring masks indoors for all patrons, regardless of vaccination status beginning on Sunday September 19.

Thank You for helping us to keep our Sangha Safe in God’s Light!

New Offering: Long Meditation with Kyle

1st Sunday of the Month following our weekly service

Following our weekly Sunday service Ananda RI Minister Kyle Mcdonald will lead us in an inspired 1.5 hour meditation practice. Paramhansa Yogananda counseled us to include one longer meditation per week to revitalize our daily practice. Information on how to join can be found in the schedule below.

“The soul loves to meditate, for in contact with the Spirit lies its greatest joy. If, then, you experience mental resistance during meditation, remember that reluctance to meditate comes from the ego; it doesn’t belong to the soul.” -Paramhansa Yogananda
