This 500-hour 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.
You will be accommodated in one of the unique back-to-nature cabanas. All cabanas are individually decorated, and always comprise some form of charming study / chill-out option, such as a veranda with deck chairs, a balcony with planter chairs, hammocks etc. Fashioned from local materials like rice straw, and bamboo, the cabanas are built to include trees, leaves, and to let you see the moon and star-filled skies. The living areas combine a rural feel with a surprising degree of comfort. The majority of the cabanas have attached bathrooms. Those not having directly attached facilities have a reserved private bathroom a few paces away.
Lara Baumann, founder of Quantum Yoga, and experienced 500-hour Quantum Yoga teacher Sally-Anne Sweeney will be running the course. Dr. Matthew Clark will be lecturing on various specialized subjects, such as Samkhya philosophy, sadhu culture, Tantra, and basic Sanskrit. 500-hour Quantum Yoga teacher, Nadine Bader will teach a thorough and fun anatomy and physiology program, as well as offering general assistance throughout the training.
This 500-hour program will run alongside the 200-hour intensive teacher training, and as such you will act in the role of the mature student, able to support and advise the less experienced trainees. You will, therefore, be working very closely with Lara, Sally-Anne, and Nadine, thus acquiring the practical, pedagogic, and psychological skills to guide students through stressful and pressurized 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, 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. This may then also form your subject for a written thesis of 5,000 words. You will be expected to have prepared an outline proposal for your final paper, which will be written after completion of the course (final submission date is April 14, 2020).
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 session before the main morning asana-Vinyasa class, as well your own Q&A session before the lectures in the afternoon.
There will be regular meetings with Lara and / or Sally 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.
If you are interested, please send an inquiry to Quantum Yoga as soon as possible. They will send you an interview form, which will give you both the opportunity to confirm your suitability for and interest in the program.
Your training includes Sunday study trips.
