Weekend- and 5-day Retreats with Yoga and Meditation

A weekend retreat at Haa Retreat Center allows you to open up for a new experience of yourself and gives you inspiration for your everyday life.

Now we even offer 5-day weekend courses!
These courses start Wednesday at 5.30pm and end Sunday at 4.30pm. During the 5-day course there is a 1½ day silent period. If you like, you can do the Intestinal Cleansing Wednesday morning. Karma Yoga hours are like on the longer courses, that is approx. 1½ hours before noon and an occasional afternoon or evening. Please see other details below, in the information on the 3-day courses.

The 3-day course has 15 hours of teaching divided into 8 classes. The teaching contains classical yoga, breathing exercises, concentration techniques, deep relaxation and meditation. Amongst others: the Source of Energy®, a version of Inner Silence called Returning® and a lecture on Saturday evening.

Skala-morotterDuring Saturday and Sunday, before noon, we have approx. hours of Karma yoga, and a little Sunday afternoon also. Karma yoga means that you take part in the practical work around the course center. For instance: in the garden, in the kitchen or by the horses.

In your free time you can savor the beautiful nature of Småland: go for walks in the forest, canoeing in the lake, riding our horses – or rest in the pyramid.

It does not require any prior understanding to participate in our weekend retreats. Both beginners and experienced are welcome.

However, to participate in the Chakra Weekend, you must have taken part in one of our other courses prior to coming.

See Chakra weekend – for experienced >>

The course starts on Friday 5:30pm and ends on Sunday 4:30 pm. A weekend course is a process of development and it is therefore important that you are able to participate from beginning to end.

The lessons will be taught in English.

Comments from Participants

Many thanks for a nice weekend retreat that, beyond good instructions and a peaceful atmosphere, gave me more energy and a boost in my mental state

Lars Bille

I want to thank you for a nice weekend course. I came back with a lot of new energy and alertness to everyday life, awesome what only two days can do … Regards

Ida

Thank you so much for the quiet I got from you now on the weekend course !!! The best thing I have done … and I have not been so relaxed since the kids came in 2000.
I will definitely be back … and then with my husband. THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Victoria

I want to thank you for an amazing and wonderful weekend. It was the first time I tried it: this type of recreation and I also got the opportunity to learn something new. It was a great experience, even though on Saturday afternoon I doubted my ability to ever be able to meditate. I realized during Saturday evening when Turiya talked a bit more about meditation, that I had a slightly wrong approach. I had far too high expectations of myself. On Sunday, I had several insights during the meditations and was able to, in a completely different way, assimilate my training and thus get something very valuable for my everyday life.

Greetings!

I want, after this weekend course, to thank you for being there. I feel an incredible difference in my family right now. I feel awake and present and filled with a great inner joy and energy, yet also quiet. The most pleasant and most liberating experience for me is to experience that I am not my thoughts or feelings but the one experiencing them. It saves a lot of energy to, at any time, just be able to put ideas to the side.

Hello!
First I want to thank you for a, in all ways, very rewarding course the last weekend! A lot has happened in a short time. I am now back in everyday life, and it works well. The diet after stomach cleansing suits me fine. I feel calm and more present than before and this past weekend is alive in me. It was quite obvious to me during the weekend in Haa that I want to come back. With thanks and warm greetings!

Inez

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this course so rich and full of joie de vivre
