A’·nan·da  = Pure Bliss. Absolute Joy. 

The essence of Ananda is a greater understanding and knowledge of ones self which is gained through both intention and physical experience.

Yoga, Meditation, CranioSacral Therapy and Energy Work are some of the modalities that help us to know our physical bodies. Through knowledge of the body, we come to know the mind and spirit within. Once this is known, we experience the absolute joy and pure bliss of Ananda. You are invited to enter this website and begin your journey in body-mind balance, personal growth and self-realization. Fort McMurray owned and operated the Ananda Center for Balance is the name of Heather Thomas’ CranioSacral & Yoga Business in Fort McMurray. All other workshops and trainings are offered by Heather can be accessed through her sister site: www.heatherthomas.ca.
