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 western world by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi.
Yoga, meditation, spirituality, personal growth, self-healing and much more. The Ananda Centre offers a wide range of courses and residential retreats based on the principles of the ancient science of Kriya Yoga and the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
Immediately upon arriving at Ananda you will have the sensation of being 'at home’. It’s easy to relax and be yourself in this inspiring place, immersed in the splendid surrounding views and the quiet stillness of the Umbrian hills.
However long your stay with us may be – a day, a week or more – your experience at Ananda will always include lessons, workshops and guided practices informed by the basic techniques of Self-realisation.

Swami Kriyananda said: “In each one of us there is a special song which needs to be sung.”
