“You need to go no further than the short film Ananda created, Sights and Sounds of Ananda, to evoke the peacefulness and beauty of the surroundings, as well as tremendous yoga-centric spirituality,” shares Yoga Shanti owner Colleen Saidman Yee who will be cohosting an upcoming fall yoga retreat, YOGA IN INDIA, with her husband Rodney Yee from November 1st – 7th.

Colleen adds, “A place like Ananda in the Himalayas will transport our group in exactly the way we desire—bringing together the ancient remedies, practices, and the deep-rooted wisdom of Indian culture, and offer a cohesive experience for everyone who joins us on the retreat. Ananda is more than just the best destination spa in the world, It is a philosophy, a lifestyle, and a tradition.”
