Paramhansa Yogananda – sharing his teachings through community and groups

There is no part of life that meditation cannot improve.  Meditation brings us in deeper contact with ourselves and with the Divine.

Temple of Light, Assisi

Nestled in the hills of Umbria, Italy, is the European Ananda Yoga Centre, a peaceful guest retreat centre and community that lives and shares the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.  I lived here for many years and continue to be an active member of the Ananda community here in England, teaching yoga and meditation, holding regular meditation meetups and a yearly weekend retreat (with Leon Deith, Yogaananda, Reigate).

A community is forming in the UK with a vision for living the ideals of yoga – ‘simple living, high thinking’.  If you would like to know more, or would like to  investigate the possibility of joining us as we grow and develop, please contact me, I would love to hear from you.

Regular Ananda Meditation Groups – satsang and community.  Held at Nalini’s home, online, or at Yoga Ananda, Reigate.  

Upcoming Dates:

Online Meditation Lessons via Zoom – get in touch with me to find out more.


Sunday 27th September 10am – 1pm (Yoga Ananda Centre, Reigate)

Sunday 13th December – 10am – 2pm special Christmas meditation (Yoga Ananda, Reigate)

Above all, Yogananda is probably best known as the author of the spiritual classic ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’, a fascinating and deeply inspiring account of his life and the deeper aspects of yoga.  A worthy read for anyone, and a delve into the true meaning of yoga for any student of yoga or meditation.  Written with great wit and humour, it is a treasure that grows richer with each reading.

Yogananda’s teachings reach deep into the heart of yoga, providing a rich tapestry of wisdom and techniques to win the battle of everyday life. Yoga, meditation, energisation techniques, chanting, prayer, affirmation, introspection, satsang and how to develop a personal relationship with the Divine, all form part of the path of Kriya Yoga.

If you are interested in the path of Kriya Yoga or would like to learn to meditate, please get in touch for more details.
