This is no ordinary 200-hour yoga teacher training program. In Tantra Flow Yoga’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, we focus on the outer layer of a being, the Annamaya Kosha; the physical body.
Tantra Flow Yoga School holds the Tantric belief that the body is a temple. We honor and tend to the whole body because, in the Tantric perspective, the Divine dwells within it. Thus, our body is a tool for spiritual practice. Asana is the first step on this path.
In addition to learning anatomy and clean alignment, we follow the ascent of the Chakras through their elements and their influence on the poses and sequencing. For example, where and how the feet (aspects of the First Chakra,) are placed can have a tremendous impact on alignment for the entire body and the fullest expression of a pose.
You will learn how to safely sequence a class, give intelligent adjustments, and develop the ability to communicate the instruction clearly for meaningful yoga classes. The Philosophy of Yoga covers the ancient history and lineage of this sacred practice in a fun and captivating manner. You will be introduced to the ancient practice of Ayurveda and how to care for yourself on and off the mat. In essence, I bring the feeling of India, the birthplace of Yoga, to you through the course.
If you want to become yoga teacher, this training is for you. If you love yoga and want to learn more about this powerful practice, this training is for you. You will leave with deeper knowledge of the history and lineage of this ancient practice and disciplined techniques to practice and teach wisely. Most importantly, you will leave with a life-long personal practice to carry you through the rest of your life. This is priceless.
Tantra Flow Yoga is a Yoga Alliance registered school. Upon completing the requirements of the training, you will be eligible to register through Yoga Alliance as a 200-hour level teacher.
