Hatha Yoga
Sep 21 @ 6:20 pm – 7:20 pm
Hatha Yoga @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Ananda Yoga is a gentle and meditative approach to Hatha Yoga with emphasis on the physical, mental and spiritual benefits.  Learn more about Ananda Yoga here.

Our approach emphasizes dynamic relaxation through the various postures, combined with breathing techniques, affirmations and mental focus. Postures are adapted for individual needs and abilities and we encourage awareness and relaxation rather than physical strain. The result is physical rejuvenation, mental clarity and a deeper sense of inner peace.

Classes are suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing. Please come a bit early for your first class, to meet the instructor and answer questions. Mats and blankets are provided, but you may bring your own gear. 

*Preregistration is encouraged, but not required. Drop-ins are welcome.

*No class on October 19

Kriya Meditation
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Kriya Meditation @ Ananda Dallas Meditation Center | Addison | Texas | United States

Open to all kriyabans – those who have been initiated into the kriya technique as taught by by Paramhansa Yogananda.

Group meditations for kriyabans are held monthly at the Ananda Center. Some are guided meditations, others are silent. Please contact the center for more information.

“The Kriya Yoga which I am giving to the world through you in this nineteenth century,” Babaji told Lahiri Mahasaya, “is a revival of the same science which Krishna gave, millenniums ago, to Arjuna, and which was later known to Patanjali, and to Christ, St. John, St. Paul, and other disciples.”  – Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda

Sunday Service
Sep 24 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Sunday Service @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center | Addison | Texas | United States

The Sunday worship service at Ananda is inspired by the meditation tradition of the East and the ancient teachings of mystical Christianity, with inspirational readings from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. Service includes music, group chanting and meditation, an inspirational talk drawn from the writings of Paramhansa Yogananda, and a unique blessing ceremony called the Festival of Light.

Before service begins at 10 am, you are welcome to a period of silent meditation from 9 to 9:45 am. Those who wish can also participate in a ceremony of individual prayer for freedom or clarity about a personal challenge, called the Purification Ceremony. You may offer that prayer at the altar.

Our hearts and our sanctuary are open to people of all faiths, races, orientations, truth-seekers, people exploring meditation for the first time, and anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the meaning and purpose of life.

After Service, you are invited to meet the ministers and others in the congregation over snacks in the foyer.
