Ananda means joy. Ananda is a worldwide organization dedicated to helping you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the revolutionary approach to yoga science brought by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the best-selling spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi.

Yogananda brought a practical yet devotional path for those of all faiths and backgrounds. His teachings emphasize direct inner experience of the Divine, which he called “Self-realization.”
