Quantum Yoga

Lara Baumann

Sri Lanka

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”. Mandala has now published the new 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 writes features for yoga magazines, as well as making a regular appearance on Body In Balance TV. Lara runs Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training courses in the UK, India and Sri Lanka. From October ’08 till March’12, Lara has been intermittently on world tour, teaching the Quantum Yoga workshop series in yoga hubs of the USA, Asia and Europe. She has now settled in Galle, Sri Lanka, where she and her husband are building an upmarket eco-retreat. Lara has published three Quantum Yoga double audio-CD’s of the Basic sequences that regulate each Ayurvedic dosha (body-mind constitution) in turn. The Quantum Master Sequence DVD came out in June ’09. In October ’11 she launched a trilogy of Advanced dosha-regulating Quantum Yoga sequence DVD’s. This year’s releases are the final three Beginner’s sequence video downloads. In November ’12, Lara shot the Quantum Yoga pregnancy DVD, which is still in post-production. Lara’s objective is to guide people in developing an optimal, powerful, healing and sacred practice that leads to health, happiness and enlightenment.

Workshops

Twisted Dog

Yotopia, Covent Garden, London
30th Aug - 30th Aug 2015
Optimising personal practice with Ayurveda

Quantum Yoga is a method of personal practice optimisation using Ayurvedic assessment tools. The focus is on dynamic asana (posture) – vinyasa (breath-synchronised movement) and pranayama (breathing exercises).

           

SUNDAY, 30th August 2015, 2 till 5pm Beginner to Intermediate Level

The workshop will begin with an introduction to Quantum Yoga, i.e. how to gain the ability to ultimately spontaneously create your ideal flowing, dynamic yoga sequences. Each participant will be given a Prakriti (Ayurvedic “nature”) assessment test, with which they will discover how the three doshas (body-mind constitutions) are distributed in their own body-mind complex. Next we will investigate how outer circumstances affect what tendencies manifest, and thereby how our requirements can vary from day to day. Finally, using the quantum method, yogis will learn how to adjust their yoga practice in accordance with changing needs to achieve optimal results. The group will then decide/vote which of the 3 dosha-regulating intermediate sequences to choose to practice: Birds (vata-regulating), Heroes (pitta-regulating), or Lotus Mandala (kapha-regulating). All three are flowing vinyasa sequences, with the emphasis in turn being on grounding, strengthening, stabilizing (vata-regulation), cooling, soothing, balancing (pitta-regulation), or energising, invigorating, and stimulating (kapha-regulation). Each sequence can be accompanied by music composed specifically to support the desired energetic effect. Time permitting, we will end with a Q & A session. 

Please visit www.quantumyoga.com to find out more information, and to do the Prakriti (Ayurvedic “nature”) assessment test if you prefer to have completed it before coming to the workshop.

COST: £40 

Note: Massive discounts will be given on the day to workshop participants, who would like to purchase the Quantum Yoga CD’s or DVD’s of the Series. Bring cash or cheque please!

SUNDAY, 20th September, 2 till 5pm Intermediate – Advanced Level

Each participant will be given a Prakriti (Ayurvedic “nature”) assessment test, with which they will discover how the three doshas (body-mind constitutions) are distributed in their own body-mind complex (for those who have already completed the test, Lara will be available to answer any general or personal enquiries). Next we will investigate how outer circumstances affect what tendencies manifest, and thereby how our requirements can vary from day to day. Finally, using the quantum method, yogis will learn how to adjust their yoga practice in accordance with changing needs to achieve optimal results. The group will then decide/vote which of the 3 dosha-regulating advanced sequences to choose to practice: Infinity Trees (vata-regulating), Beauty (pitta-regulating), or Leaping Salmon (kapha-regulating). All three are dynamic vinyasa sequences, with the emphasis in turn being on grounding, strengthening, stabilizing (vata-regulation), cooling, soothing, balancing (pitta-regulation), or energising, invigorating, and stimulating (kapha-regulation).
