Arrival by airplane

The best airport to fly into is Sacramento. Reno Airport is also an option but is less preferable due to inclement weather in the winter and higher transportation costs to Ananda. From the Sacramento airport, there are a few options.

For a good value, we recommend The Expanding Lights regularly scheduled Sacramento Airport Pick-up and Drop-off.

For more flexibility around days and times for pickup and drop off, a good option is Foothill Shuttle and Charter Service.

Yet another option is the Super Shuttle. Or, rent a car and follow the directions, or take the bus or train or public transportation.

    "The people were nice enough. The retreat though had very little yoga. Rather it focused on body energizer activities, and meditation. I wanted to focus on yoga and improving my abilities, and came away deeply disappointed for the lack of yoga on this retreat. Also, the website should state that a big focus of the retreat is teaching about the Ananda communities beliefs, which includes gurus they've chosen to follow, reincarnation, and sources of energy.

    "Badri is a magnetic leader with a profound knowledge and understanding of not only yoga asanas, but the deeper aspects of yoga philosophy. Foremost, he is an incredible model of how to apply the principles of yoga in one's own life; making yoga not just something you practice on your mat, but every day, in every situation. He is funny, insightful, focused, and a talented yogi that inspired me to reach for my own potential; to go forth and share the knowledge, insights, and inspiration I've received during my time in the Ananda Yoga teacher training."

    "Don’t let Badri’s youthful look and spirit fool you! His depth of knowledge about the Asanas (and all of Ananda’s yoga techniques) is vast. His expertise and heart come through in all his teachings giving him the unique ability to provide specific technical and safety instruction along with the many physical and spiritual benefits of the practices. Badri is a great role model as a teacher and I learned so much through his thoughtful, detailed feedback—it allowed me to build my skills quickly and and feel confident enough to teach right after graduating from my Teacher Training."

    "I think the highlights are that the people who run the retreat center are really nice, and welcoming. They go out of their way to make sure that new people feel welcome. The food is excellent (you have to watch out not to eat too much because that made me sluggish throughout the day). The grounds are beautiful. The yoga and meditation practice is good. The rooms are comfortable, and warm. It's well worth the cost. The only thing to warn people about is that the place is run by folks devoted to a spiritual path set forth by a Swami from India. It resembles a cult, although once you get to know people there its pretty relaxed. They encourage participation in the lectures and Sunday service, however they don't pressure or ever try to "convert" anyone. They are pretty hands off, and welcoming of the different paths that bring people there."

I have never felt so embraced and held in that way before, and it gave me a perfect opportunity for discovery in a safe environment. I never would have believed it possible that people could live so harmoniouslyrespecting each other and providing support so that everyone can reach their highest potential. I met people there that I have no doubt will be part of my life forever.As a result of my visit, there have been some dramatic shifts in my perceptions. Challenges that I have had my entire life just dissolved. I have never felt so free and full of joy. While I know that this life will never be without adversity, I have a calm confidence that I have the strength to meet anything that comes. I can't remember my heart ever being so open before, and I just want to share that love!"

    "My time at Expanding Light was extraordinarily rewarding and peaceful. I wanted a lot of time alone to deepen my meditation practice, and to read, write, and walk, and Expanding Light met all of my expectations and more. It took me a little while to adjust to the quiet, but I quickly got over that and worked myself into a pleasant daily routine, albeit only for three days. When I returned home, I still had four days off before I returned to work , and a couple of my co-workers told me how relaxed I seemed. I will always carry my experience with me. A little lady named Adrienne who was in the Karma Yoga program at The Expanding Light came across my path and told me that I'd probably leave there with the Ananda Glow, and I do believe that happened. Thank you so much for everything."

    "Thanks to everyone at Ananda for creating a beautiful oasis where joy naturally bubbles up. I felt effervescent surrounded by such blissful, loving people. The Expanding Light gave me the rejuvenation and growth in spiritual skills that I needed to help my dad with a full loving heart. When people ask me about the retreat, I say 'They are living it.' Meaning you all are truly living a spiritual life and creating spiritual community in every way."

    "Thank you Ananda, and all the other extraordinary teachers and beams of God's light. Our hearts are touched and we will never be quite the same. My friend said that her time at Expanding Light was the best present she has ever had in her life! We love you all and truly miss you! At 10 a.m. I wanted to head over to our classroom for another fascinating, laughter-filled, and inspiring class."

    "My experience at Ananda has given me back my life. I remember now the dynamic person I was born to be. I leave here full of faith in myself and God; with God in myself, and with the tools to create a life of harmony and joy. Yoga is a way of life, not just an exercise class. If done the Ananda way, everyday, it will change who you thought you were."

    "I knew that my time in the Ananda Yoga Teacher Training (AYTT) course would be life-changing, I just had no idea how it would all manifest. I could not be happier with how it unfolded. The people in the course were amazing, and all of The Expanding Light facilitators were incredible. I truly experienced the Expanding Light, and my testimonial to this is that I am going to pass it on. I am so inspired to give back, because what I have received here is too much for me to keep locked inside of me. I leave here with open eyes and an open heart, and with overflowing joy."

    "AYTT was a course in how to live. It not only taught us how to teach but how to deepen our own practice so that we become what we are teaching."

    "The AYTT was life transforming. I had no idea how detailed, organized, and professional this program would be. Every teacher was enlightening. I have so much to take home with me. Im going home ready to teach and confident that I will be a very fine teacher. I will keep people safe thanks to all my teachers here. I will share my love of going inward, and being the best that I can be. Thank you from the deepest center of my heart."

    "In the four short weeks that I have experienced Ananda Yoga, I have felt a shift in my inner being. I feel that I have moved my spiritual practice to a deeper level, and Im finding the words trust and receiving are starting to integrate into my way of thinking. Peacefulness has overcome anxiety, and I feel in a much better place to give more of myself, and also to allow myself to receive."

    "YTT is more than learning to teach yoga, it is about learning to live your yoga. The breadth and depth of the program astounded me. I cant imagine a more complete program. Your program is really the holistic approach for those who want to spend 28 days to transform their lives."

    "I feel like Ive learned much more than I ever thought I would. The teachers were great, the lessons wonderful, the work not too demanding, the free time fun filled, and the food fantastic , what more can you ask for? It definitely deepened my understanding of the asanas, both practically and theoretically. Because of AYTT I feel much more confident in going out to teach."
