The Academy has centers in Italy (In Umbria near Assisi) and Oregon USA (near Portland)

ITALY The heart of the Academy is ideally situated in the rolling Umbrian hills outside the medieval town of Assisi, a center of spiritual pilgrimage, the International City of Peace, and birthplace of St. Francis.  Integrating East and West, the Academy’s sister organization, Ananda, is an international yoga retreat center located next to the Academy which draws thousands of guests from around the world.  MAP
