Check-in Time:

During your training, you will stay at The Lotus Pad that's set in the campo (countryside) of Ibiza in a simple farmhouse with cool and comfortable rooms in the north and center of the island. Since it is a small place, all rooms are shared with no more than three people in each room.


This course is suitable for

  • Teachers who have already completed a 200-hour teacher training course with any other registered teacher
  • The applicant must have been practicing yoga for at least three years and teaching at least one year to attend
  • Yoga practitioners of five years or more and wish to attend purely as a period of intensive study. In this case, you would only receive a certificate of attendance.

The Lotus Pad is renowned for running retreats and bed and breakfast yoga holidays over the summer months in Ibiza. Wendy Buttery, teacher and Lotus Pad owner, has been teaching for over 12 years and has now at last devised a program of further education for teachers who are already qualified with a minimum of 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification or for practitioners of yoga who have been practising and studying yoga consistently for at least 5 years.

Observing for some years the plethora of teachers embarking on teaching teachers, Wendy realized that there is also a need for training to fill the gap between 200 hours (foundation) and 500 hours (advanced). So with that in mind, an intermediate training was devised by Wendy using her many years of practice, training, certification, and personal sadhana to introduce two modules of further education to add professional development hours to already qualified teachers or for an intense period of study for others.

Purusha module

This module will take an emphasis in aspects of philosophy and meditation but will cover several different elements to yoga practice and teaching over a period of a seven-night stay. The group will work towards 50 hours of practice with the syllabus including eight hours of teaching a day:

  • Asana: Working towards intermediate poses such as headstand sequences, Urdhva Dhanurasana, and arm balances
  • Pranayama: Sequences including the use of Antara Kumbhaka
  • Meditation: Vipassana meditation practice and teaching
  • Bandhas and Kriyas: Accessing the power of your internal locks and cleansing with use of kriyas
  • Philosophy: Drawing upon the wisdom of yoga and spiritual teachers. Discussion and introspection from "light on life", "the power of now" and "becoming a teacher of presence"
  • Mantra chanting: Learn three mantras to aid in your teaching. Work with Jody Swingler on use of mantras, chanting, and work with malas
  • Yoga methodology: Teaching of alignment, use of Sanskrit, and principles of teaching
  • Teaching practice: Pose teaching and adjustment clinic

Sample schedule

  • 08:00 - 10:30 Meditation, asana, and pranayama practice
  • 10:30 - 11:30 Breakfast
  • 12:00 - 13:00 Philosophy or anatomy and physiology lectures and group work
  • 13:00 - 15:00 Break (snacks, go out for walks, and others)
  • 15:00 - 16:00 Pranayama practice or chanting
  • 16:00 - 18:00 Asana practice and theory
  • 18:00 - 19:00 Adjustment clinic and pose teaching
  • 19:30 - 20:30 Dinner
  • 20:30 - 21:30 Pre-bed meditation

During the course of training, students are expected to attend all classes in order to complete the course. An essay will be given to be completed within two months of finishing the course. Should a student not able to attend a class due to unforeseen circumstances then they will be expected to re-sit that class at an alternative time for an extra cost.
