Experience the benefits of meditation in your life—increasing inner peace, superior health, and spiritual awakening. Ananda is one of America’s oldest and largest centers for meditation classes and training.

This particular Learn to Meditate workshop is a short but intensive 3-hour immersion into some easy-to-learn techniques. It will help you establish a daily practice, providing you with increased calmness, greater focus and energy, and a solution-conscious approach to life.

Our instructors are certified and experienced in the techniques of kriya yoga as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda. Each instructor has a personal practice of meditation and many years of experience in sharing these teachings with others.
