Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the great spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, Ananda is a global spiritual movement dedicated to the belief, born of experience, that everyone can rediscover their joy within and realize God in their daily lives as a tangible, loving reality.

Ananda in Houston is in the fledgling stages of development. We hope to create a community of spiritual growth and support in learning and applying the yoga teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda to our lives. We anticipate offering group Sadhana and classes to learn and practice meditation, yoga, chanting and principles of healthy, simple living, based on balancing spiritual and worldly activities.

For a preview of what might evolve here in Houston, please visit the Ananda Texas website. Based in Dallas, Ananda Texas offers a full menu of opportunities to expand the presence joy and peace in your life. We look forward to meeting you and providing the services that appeal most to our Houston wisdom seekers. If you see something offered in Dallas that you would like to experience here in Houston, or to find out about current meeting times and locations, please contact:

Upcoming Events

All are welcome! Ananda’s primary goal is to help people achieve Self-realization, a state of consciousness that comes through shedding all outward self-definitions. On that premise, we welcome all sincere seekers, regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability. We are committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone to pursue the search for God.
