Welcome to Ananda Kolkata

Regular classes / events :

Paramhansa Yogananda said that the first step to deep meditation is single-pointed concentration and relaxation, and that is exactly what we’ll learn in this class. This is also the first step towards learning Kriya Yoga.
This 4-Part Class Series is based on the book of the same title by Swami Kriyananda. This class series is an in-depth study of the Yogic Path and lifestyle.
At this point the spiritual aspirant shifts from being a student to becoming a disciple. Discipleship doesn’t mean a change in our outward life, or the renunciation of a worldly life. It only means a deeper inner relationship with the Divine through the channel of the Guru.

During this final level we study many of the deeper teachings of the Yogic path, all the while continuing to practice all the meditation techniques that we have learnt in the previous levels.


Special classes / events :

Paramhansa Yogananda taught specific techniques for awakening the divine healing energy that flows within each individual. These techniques have been found to help overcome physical, mental and spiritual diseases including serious illnesses.

We offer healing classes & workshops held by certified healing teachers trained on the teachings on healing of Paramhansa Yogananda.

The Chakras hold the key for increased mental and emotional health and well-being. Each of the Chakras have specific qualities which we can experience through meditation and introspection practices.

We provide classes to help understand the qualities and functions of each of the chakras based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
