Meditation at the bank of South Yuba River near Ananda Dhiira

Ananda Dhiira a non-profit Spiritual Ecological Center aiming to be of service to the surrounding community with Yoga and Meditation retreats, Detox and Wellness retreat as well as social service projects, located in Penn Valley, near the South Yuba River State Park and occupies 20 acres of land, mostly covered with oak forest. We have a small creek passing through our property and a developing garden. From our Ashram, in 10 minutes walk, we can reach the longest covered wooden bridge of the USA and a lovely recreation area to chill out in the hot summer days: all around you can find also many different trails with different kind of difficulty levels as well as duration, so giving such a big choice for every training and expectations. There is monthly bird watching organized by the nearby State Park and a huge variety of wildlife around such as wild turkeys, deers, bald eagle, robins, hares, skunks, California quails, coyotes, mountain lions, bears, etc.  The nearest city (Grass Valley) is 12 miles away: the closest supermarket is 6,5 miles away as well as public transportation.  We maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a healthy vegetarian diet. Only vegetarian food is served on our premises, and it is a requirement that the volunteers while they are in our compound, working with us, refrain from smoking and using any alcohol or drugs. Food and accommodation are provided, as well as meditation and yoga classes if interested.  For more info on volunteering, please contact Didi Ananda Acira at +1 347 530 4424 / +1 530 432 3618 or email at: anandaacira@gmail.com

Volunteers in Ananda Dhiira

ANANDA DHIIRA is also welcoming people or family who are interested in spending a few days enjoying a calm and peaceful moment while learning about spirituality through yoga, meditation, and healthy yogic lifestyle.  As everyday life in the city with a hectic schedule and stressful moment, it is essential to spend some time and give “Me Time” to yourself. Living in nature with daily spiritual practice, and sentient food, promotes healing, recharging and gaining back the spiritual energy.  If you would like to stay a few days in the Ashram / Master Unit, an appointment with Didi is required for the availability of accommodation.
