Location & Accommodation

Located in the magical nature resort, Bhakti Kutir in Palolem South Goa, this Teacher Training aims to provide a holistic experience for you to be completely immersed in your yoga journey and lifestyle. Enjoy the smells, tastes and sounds as you leave all worries behind to embark on this experience of a lifetime. 
 
Accommodation will be situated under the canopy of a 2-acre coconut grove in Bhakti Kutir Resort’s, back-to-nature cabanas. No two cabanas are alike. Each of the double occupancy cabanas are built to include trees, leaves, and to let you see the moon and star-filled skies. The living areas combine an authentic Indian rural feel with a surprising degree of Western comfort. To make the training most affordable for you, we have made each cabana-hut shared accommodation. You will be paired with another member of the teacher training and we can arrange rooms by preference. If attending with friends, we will be sure to pair those who wish to room together. If you wish to have your own accommodation, please contact us to verify extra cost and availability. 

Vegetarian Meals will serve through Monday to Saturday afternoon. Fresh, local, seasonal food is always chosen and carefully cleaned and prepared to produce the menu at Bhakti Kutir. Because of the heat and intensive-training environment, small-light meals spread throughout the day to keep energy high. We will have lots of breaks that will offer healthy snacks. Anything additional that is not provided through the meal plan can be purchased through the Bhakti Kutir Restaurant. Saturday evening and Sunday we will not be offering food at the resort. This will give you the opportunity to explore Palolem Beach and to try food outside of the facility. There is a multitude of restaurants on the beach, some which offer live music. Due to our sensitive western stomachs, the possibility of food illness is something to be mindful of. Before the training begins we will give food recommendations of safe restaurants to eat at. Fortunately South Goa is well know for its clean, organic and healthy food and there are many options.

An Ayurveda and naturopathic clinic is located in Bhakti Kutir. The Kailas Center can provide Ayurvedic medical consultations by the doctor on hand, as well as Reiki, and different available massage treatments. This will all be at additional cost and will be booked through the Kailas Centre directly not through the Teacher Training.

QUANTUM YOGA TEACHER TRAINING - 200 & 500 HOUR

Quantum Yogis love Bhakti Kutir!  This will be the 6th Quantum Yoga Teacher Training to take place on one of our wonderful yoga shala and QY Founder Lara Baumann and Senior Teacher Judith Daniel have been regular teachers here for many years. Whether your destiny is to teach Yoga or you are just interested in your deepening your practise, this one month Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.com) certified course could be calling your name.

Bhakti Kutir provides the perfect backdrop for the magic to take place:  the peace and tranquility, the immersion in nature, the healing and nourishing food and the combination of Ayurveda and Yoga - which is key to the foundation of Quantum Yoga.  It is the perfect environment for students to devote themselves to study and nourish mind, body and soul.  

Senior Quantum Yoga Teacher, Judith Daniel will be taking the course, assisted by other Quantum Teachers and visiting experts, who will be giving lectures or practical sessions on various specialist subjects including Anatomy & Physiology, Ayurveda and Yoga Philosophy.  Quantum Yoga founder Lara Baumann, will actively oversee and consult the programme, as well as holding thrice weekly Skype sessions with the group.  

Throughout the month,  students will live and breathe all aspects of Yoga, exploring both on and off the mat and following their passion from its historical and philosophical roots through to current day practise.  They will also learn firsthand the Quantum Method, its creative and dynamic sequences and how to teach them.  And all of this at the source, the heart and home of Yoga…INDIA.

The average day will start with early morning Meditation & Pranayama, followed by an extensive Asana practise.  After lunch the day continues with Lectures and finishes with daily Adjustment & Teaching Practicum, which often takes place on nearby Patnem Beach.  The month culminates with the students teaching an Assessment Class - ensuring that on completion of the course, they have gained the practical tools and are sufficiently prepared and confident to take their own class.  The 500 Hour course runs concurrently with extra study hours built into the schedule for 500H students only.

It is important that students are already familiar with basic yoga texts (Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Bhagavad Gita, Light on Yoga by B.K.S Iyengar) and have prepared an outline proposal for a 2,500 word essay, which must be completed by the end of March 2016.

Quantum Yoga Teacher Training, Bhakti Kutir 2015, what the students said:
    
"Throughout my yoga journey, I have found myself feeling continuously grateful and in gratitude for the Quantum Yoga Teacher Training and both of your time, wisdom, teachings and guidance.  I am extremely lucky to have found full time work here in Sheffield as a yoga teacher and teach the Quantum flows and my own creations daily.  I think of you both often and smile in my heart about the choices leading me to you lovely Yogis."  Rachel, 200H student, Goa 15 - now teaching in the UK.  
“Thank you very much for some wonderful, challenging, beautiful, learning, transformative, amazing weeks!” - Krios, 200H student, Goa 2015 - Denmark

Healing sounds & Hatha Yoga

  • Ourem Rd Canacona, GA, 403702 India (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Practice Asanas (yoga postures) with awareness and integration with the natural elements, and use shamanic healing elements such as sounds, smells. Guided Relaxation  with connection and healing energies of light.   Music and Ancestral Healing Sounds. The practitioner of Hatha Yoga uses mainly the physical and pranic bodies as an instrument for spiritual fulfillment. This method increases strength and flexibility. It brings balance, concentration and relaxation arising a sense of harmony and peace. With the use of the breath, we become aware of the prana and reestablish its harmonious flow within the body.
