Swami Janakananda's classical book on yoga and meditation

Swami Janakananda: Yoga, Tantra and Meditation in Daily Life

"Greetings Janakananda

I just read your wonderful book on Yoga and Tantra.

The presentation of the information is so clear, straight forward and unpretentious.

I am amazed at how effective some of these methods of meditation are.

The simple act of sitting motionless and experiencing the body, breath and mind is very powerful.

I have worked out my little morning routine of yoga, some breathing and some quiet meditation. It is so refreshing and makes my entire day wonderful.

I have reccomended this book to many friends beginers as well as more experienced practitioners because it serves as a good introduction and a refresher for those who have practiced for quite awhile.

I wish this would have been the first exposure I had to this tradition.I would have wasted a lot less time.

All the best – Malcolm, California, USA" August 2008

Professional yoga and meditation teachers

Our yoga teacher training is a well-established four year full-time training, received in an ashram environment. Another two years are required to become a meditation teacher. We base the schooling of our teachers on human contact, tradition, ones own experience and modern science.

To be able to work well with others, a profound self-knowledge is necessary – that is why our education is more than a few courses, consisting of only occasional meetings. This is consistent with the authentic tradition, a full-time training which takes its starting-point in the daily life of the ashram - a way of living that you devote yourself to, for a period of your life.

The yoga teacher training starts with participation in the annual 3-Month Sadhana Retreat at Haa Course Center. Following the course, those interested in receiving this thorough training usually start at Haa, and may move to one of the other schools at a later date.

Read more about the yoga and meditation training, or contact us.

The teachers who have done the yoga teacher training receive a certificate.

Only schools which you find in these pages, are approved by us – in accordance with our guidelines for presentation, education and teaching.
