Personalized Learning, Inner Discovery, Transforming Community

College Beyond Borders

A yoga-based education on three continents.

Higher education is at a crossroads. If you are among the growing number of students whose needs are not met within the typical academic setting, we invite you to join us in exploring new vistas of what a college experience can be.

Ananda College of Living Wisdom goes beyond the idea of a single campus. Instead, our academic year takes place on three continents: North America, Asia, and Europe.

Academically, we expand our scope of inquiry beyond the usual routines of lectures, note-taking, and tests to explore the realms of personalized learning, inner discovery, and community transformation.

Our purpose is to help each student expand their horizons; to discover and progress along their unique path that will bring them the optimum experience of personal fulfillment and happiness. Our programs draw especially on the wisdom of yoga to provide balanced development of the whole person: body, mind, heart, and spirit.
