The facilities at the centre are good and Shivgiri's family made really tasty traditional Nepali food for...

Great weekend getaway with spa quality food and yoga without the upscale feel of a retreat focusing on amenities. The focus is on basic need for serenity and loving people who teach yoga and...

Ananda is somewhere truly special! In one week I learnt so much, a perfect introduction to a living yoga tradition from amazing teachers. Yet even this experience was exceeded by the warmth and joyful smiles of the Ananda family. From the delicious home cooked meals to the unforgettable children, I really felt I belonged here - welcomed and supported in...

Ananda Yoga Center is a beautiful place to experience all aspects of the yogic lifestyle beginning with chanting at sunrise, followed by cleansing practices, asana, pranayama, karma yoga, and so forth… Shivagiri Guru teaches his guests how to apply yoga principles to better their life. I can't imagine a more perfect setting than this ashram looking out over Kathmandu Valley...
