Didi Ananda Devapriya
Didi Ananda Devapriya began practicing Ananda Marga Yoga and meditation in 1995 and became an acharya (yogic nun and spiritual teacher) in 2001. Since then, she has been sharing individualized meditation and yoga practices with hundreds of sisters around the world.
She worked for four years in Italy, where she gave seminars and spiritual counseling to communities of meditators in 14 cities. In 2005, she moved to Romania, where she has been running the non-profit organization AMURTEL. She serves disadvantaged children in rural areas, and in particular, those that have been abandoned, neglected or abused.
She is inspired by the combination of serving those in need, working towards a profound social change, and the deeply nourishing spiritual practices.
