Women’s Retreat, Sadhana Shivir, and Karma Yoga at Ananda Dhiira


Avtk. Ananda Acira Ac. organized a three-day women’s retreat from Nov. 3 – 5, 2023, at Ananda Dhiira MU, Los Angeles Region, California. During the retreat, we had our regular yoga and meditation, a cooking class, and sister Marisella taught classes on ChiGong. We also did face detox and yoga nidra. The sisters were very inspired, and sister Maricella got an initiation. Nine sisters participated in this retreat.  

We also had a Sadhana Shivir and Karma Yoga weekend. The participants completed the railing of the deck at Ananda Dhiira.
