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.

5th May - 6th May 2018
Quantum Yoga is a method of personal practice optimisation, using Ayurveda in its assessment tools. It advocates vinyasa, breath-synchronised movement, as the primary mode of practice. It invites the person to cultivate conscious practice, realising that greater awareness results in an increase in the transformational potential of yoga.
To this end, in this Series, we will explore how a more grounding, strengthening and stabilising (vata-regulating) practice differs from a more cooling, soothing and balancing (pitta-regulating) flow, as well as an invigorating, stimulating and energising (kapha-regulating) dynamic. Each two-hour session will be preceded by a brief introduction, and accompanied by music that supports the energetic effect we are aiming to achieve. All Quantum Yoga sequences exist as audio double-CD, DVD or video download, and QY products will be offered at a discounted price to workshop participants, facilitating continued self practice, hopefully inspired by this event.
Yogis are encouraged to participate in the full workshop trilogy, but if you can only make 1 or 2 sessions, ideally you join those that regulate the dominant doshas (body-mind constitutions) in your personal prakriti (Ayurvedic nature). To find out what your Prakriti is, please go to the Ayurveda section on this website.
