who-we-are

Welcome

Welcome to Ananda, downtown Waterloo’s new holistic movement and healing arts studio. We specialize in offering somatic practices for experiencing embodied presence, authentic self-discovery, heart-felt connection, and pure bliss.

Offerings

We are passionate about finding connection – with ourselves and one another – through AYA dancing, yoga, meditation, drumming, chanting, poetry, art, and more. Let’s move, breathe, feel, express ourselves, and simply be. Together.

Vibe

Ananda is Sanskrit for “Pure joy. Bliss. One of the highest states of being.” Bliss is what we are devoted to helping you find every time you visit. Everyone is welcome here. Let Ananda be a sanctuary for the bliss-seeker within you.

I have arrived, I am home. In the here, in the now.

I am solid. I am free. In the ultimate I dwell.
