Ananda teaching centres offer classes, workshops, services, and retreats led by certified Ananda teachers and regularly visited by Ananda acharyas. At present we have centres in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, and Pune.

Ananda meditation groups are places of spiritual suppport for like-minded souls. Regular meetings are held, often in homes of members, to practise the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. Although these groups are usually comprised of 3 to 12 participants, some are larger and meet at public facilities.
We are well along in building India's first residential community between Pune and Lavasa. Like other Ananda communities in the USA and Europe, it's comprised of flats for members; a temple; and Ananda-affiliated businesses such as organic gardening, solar heating and a medical clinic.
Also at the Ananda Kriya Yogashram are a guest retreat facility, dorms, and tents for weekend programme participants or individual seclusion.
Leading the community are acharyas who live at the complex and give regular classes and spiritual services. When Swami Kriyananda is in India (which he considers home), he and his staff stay here as well. A small group of men and women monastics also live on the land, along with several volunteers from several countries.
Do you live far from any of our locations? Or have a schedule that would make it difficult for you to come to one even in your area? Then perhaps the worldwide Virtual Community is for you. Sponsored by Ananda Online Classes, the Virtual Community uses cutting-edge Web technology to bring guided yoga and meditation sessions, private classes, discussions, webinars, and much more to your home, wherever you are, for spiritual support, inspiration, and fellowship. Many across India have joined fellow seekers from other countries in this innovative endeavour.
Recently Swamiji has brought out a new course, Lessons in Self-Realization, available on a donation basis. Please visit www.lessons-in-self-realization.org for information and other sources of inspiration.
