Take charge of your health

Staying healthy is essential to having a happy, productive and fulfilling life. Under the guidance of the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, and with the support of the Ananda Life Therapy School, you will discover the tools and techniques to gain mastery over your health. You will learn how to use Cosmic Life Force to flood your body with healing prana; how to use the untapped powers of your mind to overcome sickness; and how to elevate your consciousness and reclaim the potentials with which you were born.

It is with immense joy that we invite you to experience the path of self-healing and Life Therapy!


Life Therapy originates from the ancient yogic traditions of Vedic India. They are presented by Paramhansa Yogananda for the purposes of what he called “physical, mental, and spiritual healing…demonstrating the superiority of mind over body, and of soul over mind”.


Health is not the absence of sickness, but rather a dynamic state of radiant wellbeing, of mental acuity and creativity, and of being able to use your abundance and wisdom to help others.


During the months of this program you will experience changes in your physical vitality, your mental outlook, and your capacity to participate more dynamically in your work, your relationships and your spiritual development.


Joining the Life Therapy School makes you part of a family of students, teachers and health practitioners around the world, a network of support and friendships that will last a lifetime.


“The method which can directly and quickly rouse the Life Energy to effect healing I term “Life Therapy”, or direct healing by the rays of inner Life Force.”

– Paramhansa Yogananda

“The Ananda Life Therapy School is a program that enriches life.

Through a variety of topics – from food to right thinking, we were constantly immersed in Paramhansa Yogananda’s advanced teachings on healing. As living examples, the teachers of the Life Therapy School guided us in a true journey to help us understand that the ability to have a positive impact on our health and well-being always exists within ourselves.

The Life Therapy teachings, for me, have become a profound and increasing resource, both to transcend my personal challenges, and to reinforce my ability to help others”. – Hansa

Ananda Life Therapy Training  

The Ananda Life Therapy schoolschool is dedicated to improving one’s health through the practice of self-healing techniques, and to training people who can use these techniques to help others.

The concept of “self-healing” as applied through Ananda Life Therapy means:

The practices we learn and use for ourselves for our own improvement.
While these practices require knowledge and application, they do not require the intervention of a third party.
“Self-healing” does not exclude or substitute the necessity to seek professional intervention. When such assistance is required, the self-healing practices are supportive.

The courses are offered ONLINE: you can follow the lessons and practice LIVE early in the morning and in the evening, and you can watch recorded video lessons and read the course manual during the day at any time that best suits you.

The training includes three levels of study:

✓ Level 1: Foundation Courses (250 hours)
The first level is dedicated to understanding the basic principles of self-healing and to improve your health through the practices of the self-healing techniques.

✓ Level 2: Advanced courses (250 hours)
Il second level gives an in depth study of some of the theoretical aspects and practices of self-healing, and of personal practices.

✓ Level 3: Courses to become Instructors (450 hours)
The third level allows you to become an Ananda Life Therapy Instructor which will enable you to share these teachings with others.

Level 1: Foundation course

Level 2: Advanced courses

LEVEL 3: Courses to become Instructors
