Welcome to Ananda Village

A Spiritual Cooperative Community in the Tradition of Paramhansa Yogananda

For nearly 50 years Ananda Village has exemplified the spiritual ideals of Paramhansa Yogananda’s “World Brotherhood Colonies”. Under the guidance and blessing of Swami Kriyananda (1926-2013) and our great guru Yogananda, we have developed communities, schools, businesses, music and the arts, and retreat centers throughout the world where spiritual friendships, meditation, yoga, and selfless service thrive. It all started at Ananda Village where you can join us to for an inspiring visit, retreat, for internships, family programs, or online. Please explore our site and contact us with your inquiries or to say hello. Many blessings on your journey.
