The one-month Intensive Yoga Teacher Training on Ibiza will run from Sunday the 19th January till Sunday 16th February 2025. It will be held at Quiet, Auroville’s yoga, wellness and Ayurvedic treatment center overlooking the impressive beauty of the Indian Ocean. A place to relax, recharge and rejuvenate. Lara Baumann, founder of Quantum Yoga, will be running the course. Dr Matthew Clark will be lecturing on various specialised subjects from Samkya philosophy and sadhu culture to Tantra and basic Sanskrit. This marks the 20th Quantum Yoga Teacher Training and the first time since 2012 that Lara will teach the entire course, enabling you to benefit from her many years of experience.

The course will be held in English, but Lara also speaks fluent German, French and Spanish, so if you are not a native English-speaker, translation can be offered where questions arise.

Suitability for the teacher training:

The Teacher Training is suitable for those who have completed a 200-hour training and would now like to develop their teaching skills further, deepen and intensify their understanding of the knowledge gained previously, and gain additional insight into the spiritual science of yoga.

The 500-hour program will run alongside the 200-hour Intensive Teacher Training, and as such you will act in the role of mature student, able to support and advise the less experienced trainees. You will therefore be working very closely with Lara and Nadine, thus acquiring the practical, pedagogic and psychological skills to guide students through stressful and pressurised situations.

The content of the course will be a further development and deepening of your understanding of the history, philosophy and application of yoga. In order to substantiate your knowledge of Quantum Yoga, you will be expected to further explore the teachings of Ayurveda and the significance of quantum physics in the framework of asana-vinyasa, pranayama and meditation practice. There will be a chance to recap the subjects covered in the previous courses (see 200-hour TT content), and thus expand your knowledge on these from a solid foundation.  You will be expected to develop from simply taking in information to now displaying the skill of clearly and succinctly imparting it to others, as well as relating it back to and integrating it into the realm of asana teaching. Thus part of the 500-hour course work will include a lecture prepared by you on a chosen subject. 

The assessment on the 500-hour course will consist of a written preparatory outline with handouts, to be approved by Lara, followed by the actual teaching of the class. The structure will need to follow the Quantum Yoga Grouping and Sequencing laws. There will have to be an explanation of the Assessment methodology, as informed by Ayurvedic principles. The sequence will have to have a clear theme, a peak pose (if appropriate), as well as the application of linking mechanisms beyond half-vinyasas. 

Over and above the 200-hour classes, all of which the 500-hour trainees will attend, there will be an additional Practicum before the main morning asana-vinyasa class, as well our own Q&A session before the lectures in the afternoon. There will be regular meetings with Lara to review the study, practice and events of the course, in order to clarify their relevance and significance, preparing the 500-hour students’ ability to construct and execute their own elaborate yoga programs in the future.

The course will take place at Quiet near Auroville, see www.quiethealingcenter.info. At her last visit, Lara was particularly impressed by the variety and quality of treatments available at Quiet. Naturally, it is very useful to be able to compliment the training by treating yourself to quality massage, watsu and healing treatments. 

The yummy and wholesome food on the course will be largely vegetarian, while individual dietary requirements will be taken into account. The kitchen at Quiet offers an Indian, as well as a Western option at every meal. 

Although not in Auroville, Quiet is associated with Auroville, which means that we can have access to the breathtakingly amazing Matrimandir, as well as the many interesting and fun events and activities in Auroville.
