About Château Anand
After some years of important renovation projects, Château Anand is now available for groups running from 5 to 500 people.
We host events of all backgrounds and believes, asking guests to respect our aim to create a high vibrating place. To achieve this goal, we do not serve or allow meat, tobacco, alcohol or other drugs on our site.

As the European Center of Kundalini Yoga, we host Level 1, 2 and 3 Teacher Trainings programs.
An active Sangat of people staying at Château Anand, practising the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan and living in agreement with Sikh Dharma values, contribute to the very healing and uplifting energy of the place. At the Sangat page you will find more information about our community and possiblities to join us.
About Kundalini Yoga
What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, consists of simple yogic techniques that can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter his or her age or physical ability. It is a complete science that includes breath (pranayam), yoga postures (asanas), sound, chanting (mantra) and meditation. It is designed to provide you with the experience of your highest consciousness through the raising of your Kundalini.
The Kundalini Energy
The word “kundalini” literally means “the curled lock of hair of the beloved.” It is a metaphor, a poetic way of describing the flow of energy and consciousness that already exists within each one of us. These practices enable you to merge with, or “yoke” with, the universal Self. This merging of individual consciousness with universal consciousness creates a “divine union” called Yoga.
About Yogi Bhajan
Who is Yogi Bhajan?
Harbhajan Singh Khalsa, known as Yogi Bhajan, honoured in 1974 with the title of Siri Singh Sahib by the Sikh authorities in Amritsar, India, founded the 3HO Foundation in 1969.
As master of kundalini yoga, Yogi Bhajan came to Canada in 1968 and began sharing what he had learned from his spiritual teachers in India. With the motto, “Keep up and you‘ll be kept up”, and the ever-repeated goal to inspire teachers and leaders rather than gather students, Yogi Bhajan has travelled tirelessly throughout the world teaching and counselling. He gave us the inspiration for the first European Yoga Festival in 1978.
Yogi Bhajan left his body in 2004.

About our Sangat
Château Anand is runned by a team of people staying on site and living by the values of 3HO and Sikh Dharma, the Château Anand Sangat.
Our practice of Sadhana, Seva and Simran allows us to keep up, and keep the spirit high. It helps us to handle the challenges of daily life and enjoy the blessing of each breath.
Our community varies with the seasons: winter time is very cosy and we are few, summer time is rather busy, with lots of events going on. In between we do different projects to maintain and improve the site and the communication and visibility of our project.
