In 1969, when she was 22, Asha met Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda. Recognition was instantaneous. From that day to the present Asha has dedicated herself to learning and practicing the teachings of Yogananda as Swami Kriyananda taught them. She is a founding member of two Ananda spiritual communities, the first, Ananda Village, located in a rural area. The second, Ananda Palo Alto in Silicon Valley in California, where she has resided for the last 36 years. Asha is Ananda’s “Global Ambassador,” sharing the Guru’s teachings all over the world. She is the author of four books and has an extensive presence on YouTube and Instagram.
