Paya Bay Resort: Ananda Yoga Pavilion


Why Ananda?

A·nan·da: noun: (in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism) Extreme happiness, one of the highest states of being.

A Spectacular Space

Respectfully nestled into nature on a privileged, breezy location at one of the highest points on the property (some seven stories above sea level), and with views that take your breath away, the Ananda Movement Center at Paya Bay Resort is undoubtedly one of the top yoga and movement facilities in all Central America!

Large Groups Easily Accoommodated

The center features 1,200 square feet of unobstructed floor space. Even allowing each individual 30 square feet of floor area, the pavilion can easily accommodate up to 40 movement practitioners (note, however, that at the present time the resort is limited to hosting a maximum of 30 teachers/leaders and students with shared accommodations).
