What Others Are Saying

I highly recommend Ananda Meditation Retreat to anyone that is looking to gain a deeper understanding and working knowledge of yoga and meditation. The staff are all extremely well versed in these areas and share all of what they know with students. Every meal served during the retreat was delicious, and if you are camping there are plenty of secluded and beautiful spots to pitch your tent. Enjoy the peace and tranquility that Ananda so willingly gives to all.

It completely met my expectations. I hoped to be inspired by the vision board activity, and I was. I hoped to be relaxed and renewed by the retreat atmosphere, and I was. This is a lovely and inspiring place that has re-motivated me in my life.
