Stay Overnight/Take a Retreat

Treat yourself to an uplifting and relaxing vacation by booking a stay at the Expanding Light, the Ananda Meditation Retreat, Crystal Hermitage Guest House, Gaia House (for group rental), and Banyan House (available for families during the summer, when school is out). Whichever you choose, we look forward to welcoming you.

The Expanding Light Retreat
Sign up for a class, or give yourself the gift of time to relax and recharge during a less structured Personal Retreat. Experience ashram life through the Karma Yoga program. Become a certified Ananda Yoga or meditation teacher. Choose from a variety of programs focusing on yoga, meditation, radiant health and well-being, and spiritual growth.   More

The Ananda Meditation Retreat
Nestled in the forest on the original land on which Ananda Village was founded (5 miles up the road from Ananda Village’s main campus), the Ananda Meditation Retreat provides the perfect environment for guests who wish to tap into deep inner stillness. Come for a personal seclusion, or be part of a silent group retreat. Take a program on holistic recovery, meditation, or spiritual growth.   More

Crystal Hermitage Guest House
The two-story Guest House at Crystal Hermitage, with its scenic views overlooking the Yuba River canyon, offers an intimate setting for a quiet retreat, seclusion, vacation, or honeymoon. The Guest House sleeps up to four people.   More

Gaia House (for groups)
Gaia House, Ananda Village’s venue for hosting small group retreats, provides the perfect setting for your wedding, party, family reunion, meditation/spiritual group, business and staff retreat, or workshop. In addition to overnight booking, day rental is available for your event or reception. Gaia House sleeps up to 13, with nearby overflow housing at The Expanding Light.   More

Banyan House (for families with children)
During the summer, Banyan House’s 5 bedrooms are available for families with children. Conveniently located at the Village Center, Banyan is just behind Master’s Market, and only a 5-minute walk from The Expanding Light Retreat. Adults can arrange (or bring) childcare, and participate in Expanding Light programs as a “Day Guest.”  Or, plan a family vacation and enjoy the beauty and uplifting environment of Ananda Village and the surrounding area.   More
