This website was initially a part of another website that I started in 2012. I decided to give its own site to make each website easier to navigate. My goal is to share Paramhansa Yogananda’s teachings on health for devotees and others interested in the teachings of yoga.

I am a devotee of Paramhansa Yogananda and a member of the Ananda Church of Self-Realization in Nevada City, California. Paramhansa Yogananda (1893-1952), came to America in 1925 to teach self-realization, or inner-communion with the divine, through meditation and Kriya Yoga. Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda’s, founded Ananda Village, where I live with my husband, Panduranga.  My husband and I have written two books on pilgrimage, The Pilgrim’s Italy and The Pilgrim’s France.

Through the years,  I have learned that keeping the body temple healthy is imperative on the spiritual path.  I not only lead a healthier and more robust life, but I have more focus and motivation to meditate.

My hope is that together, with Paramhansa Yogananda’s guidance, we will learn to recharge our bodies with vitality and cosmic energy, and achieve more conscious health for our bodies, minds and souls.  

In divine inspiration,

My husband and I went on pilgrimage to Italy for our honeymoon in 1998, which resulted in our first book, The Pilgrim’s Italy: A Travel Guide to the Saints.  It was followed by The Pilgrim’s France in 2003.
