The founding guru, Swami Alasakti, has returned after spending several decades studying in India to resume her position as head of this ashram.

I went for the teacher training course in 2014, it, turned out to be really great. It's extremely affordable and taught me everything I need to know to become a teacher. The food was fantastic! After thirty days I was astounded by my progression.

This is not a hotel, it's an ashram located outside of Kathmandu but it's easy to get to from the city by public bus or cab.

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...
