MA, E-RYT 500
Lara Baumann teaches the Quantum Method® of Yoga to all levels of students both publicly and privately worldwide.
Her powerful relationship with yoga and a strong interest in Eastern philosophy is the result of her upbringing in India and Japan, which subsequently led her to complete an MA in Religious Studies at SOAS, University of London.
As an apprentice, she has studied with Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, as well as BKS Iyengar in Pune. In May ’05 Lara took the Jivamukti 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training, and in July ’09 she completed the 500-hour certificate with Tripsichore. Her main teachers are Edward Clark, Danny Paradise and Clive Sheridan.
In January ‘09 Mandala Publishing released Lara’s book & DVD “Quantum Yoga, Creating Your Ideal Practice from an Ocean of Possibilities”. In 2012 Mandala published the second expanded edition of this successful book with the new subtitle “Quantum Yoga, The Holistic Approach to Creating Your Ideal Practice”. The author has also presented several yoga documentaries and written regular features for yoga magazines. Lara runs Yoga Alliance certified 200- and 500-hour Teacher Training courses in Sri Lanka, India and the UK. From October ’08 till March’12, Lara was intermittently on world tour, teaching the Quantum Yoga workshop series in yoga hubs of the USA, Asia and Europe. She then settled in Galle, Sri Lanka, where she and her husband built Tri, a design hotel on Koggala Lake, comprising yogashala and spa, see www.trilanka.com. Recently Lara has settled in Ibiza, Spain, where she presently offers private yoga sessions, and plans to expand this to regular classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings.
Lara has published all ten Quantum Yoga sequences as CD, DVD and/or video downloads, catering to all levels of practitioners, and regulating each Ayurvedic dosha (body-mind constitution) in turn. There is also instruction on pranayama, meditation, kriyas and satsang. Lara’s objective is to guide people in developing an optimal, powerful, healing and sacred practice that leads to health, happiness and enlightenment.
