Ananda Spa Foundation
The Ananda Spa Foundation (ASF) is committed to providing a better future for the underprivileged girls of India. ASF is a charitable organization that has been established with the objective of empowering women from lower socio-economic societies. In Uttarakhand, women are the working members of the family and thus the financial backbone of their communities. By empowering them with careers we are supporting the communities in which they live.
In support of this cause ASF has established India’s first Private Not-for-Profit academy providing skill based training and education for women in the field of Spa Therapy- Ananda Spa Institute. This education facilitates their employment in reputed spas and retreats around the world, thereby allowing them to work to support their families and enabling their future careers.

All courses are geared towards providing critical practical and theoretical knowledge of spa therapies and also knowledge of the human Anatomy & Physiology.

Since inception, Ananda Spa Institute has trained over 1000 students, and secured 100% placement success rate for its graduates, who are now employed and holding senior positions in top spas and hotels around the world.
