The meaning of Ananda translates to extreme happiness, one of the highest states of being. During our one week yoga retreat we will be staying in the beautiful Ananda Cottages right in the heart of Ubud, Bali. Ananda is located in the cool tranquil hills just 20 minutes walk from the village centre of Ubud, and offers lovely rural views surrounded by lush, green, fertile rice paddies. Bali’s natural beauty remains a part of Ananda’s grounds.
