Welcome to
in Texas

As part of a larger global spiritual movement, Ananda in Texas is a meditation and yoga community  dedicated to practicing and sharing the precepts of Self-realization as taught by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the great spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi.  We offer effective techniques such as meditation, raja yoga, the Path of Kriya, as well as spiritual community. Ananda is 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 Texas has taken on a virtual reality during the pandemic. Both our Dallas Center and Austin Meditation group are currently meeting primarily online. We invite you to check out our many ONLINE offerings while we gradually transition back into IN-PERSON gatherings.
