Offering Spiritual Yoga and Meditation Retreats in Italy
Situated in the splendid Umbrian hills close to Assisi, the city of Saint Francis, the Ananda Centre offers a wide range of courses and residential retreats based on the principles of the ancient science of Kriya Yoga and Self-realisation, brought to the attention of the western world by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi.
Yoga, meditation, spirituality, personal growth, self-healing and much more. Our courses and seminars are based on the practical and scientific techniques of Paramhansa Yogananda. You will be supported by an international team of teachers who have dedicated their lives to living and spreading these teachings.

Pilgrimage is an important part of all religious traditions.
The blessings received through the act of pilgrimage are profound. It is both an act of dedication, one which expresses our desire to be transformed in the purifying vibrations of the places blessed by saints and devotees.
‘My words are registered in the ether…and shall move the West…Thousands of youths must go north, south, east and west, covering the earth with small colonies, demonstrating that a simple life, accompanied by high ideals, brings the most happiness!’ – Paramhansa Yogananda, Beverly Hills, 1949.
