Welcome to Haa Course Center
Do you want to learn more ...
Do you want to go deeper ...
with yoga, tantra and meditation?
Haa Course Center, founded in 1972, has become internationally recognised for the in-depth and comprehensive teaching conducted here.
Students mostly come from Europe and Scandinavia, although some travel from Asia, Australia and America, to participate in the unique training programmes.
It is the desire to explore oneself and our way of teaching that motivates our students.
Our courses are designed for both beginners to yoga and meditation as well as advanced students who have practised for many years.
You may be surprised at the extent of the course description on these web pages. Not only are you given the structure and content, but as one student commented, more information is provided about yoga and meditation than you will find in many books.
The detailed course descriptions are provided specifically to ensure that you are clear about the programmes and the requirements. So we ask you: Please read the whole description carefully before you enrol on a course.
“I have chosen to use the rich tantric tradition, both for myself as an individual and in my teaching. It contains strong and effective methods. They sustain my energy to act and my ability to experience.
Instead of confining my mind to an unfruitful, critical attitude, I have learned to raise it to a receptive and creative level. This is a basic attitude in Tantra, which is expressed in some of the meditations. You can accept life and live it fully your way. At the same time you can intervene and act, and change things where it is possible and necessary.”
(Swami Janakananda, Founder of the School.)
Our teaching is first of all set up in a practical way. You come because you want to gain experience and results. Your full participation in the course process ensures this. Relevant theory is included in lectures and individual advice is also given when necessary, so that you can enjoy the benefits fully.
However you don’t spend all your time in the meditation hall. The surrounding countryside contributes to making your stay at Haa rich and varied. You can stroll in the forest, observe the wildlife, canoe or swim in the lake and ride our horses.
Our wood-fuelled Finnish sauna is prepared for you once a week and you have the opportunity to float in the pyramid to enhance your learning.
“It is now two days since we left the course and
I still have an elated and self-contradictory feeling
of supercharged energy and deep inner calm.”
(Student from Israel)
