According to the yogic perspective, a human body is broken into five layers, known in Sanskrit as Koshas. The body that we see and use in most yoga practices is called the Annamaya Kosha, the physical body, consisting of bones, muscles, nerves, organs, fluids, etc. etc. Basically anything that is tangible, which can be seen and touched, operates on this level. A good 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training teaches the yoga poses using this focus to keep the students safe as the new teacher develops his/her skill in seeing their students.
In the Tantra Flow Yoga 500 Hour Teacher Training, the new and/or experienced teacher will now learn about the layers underneath the physical layer. When one practices and teaches using knowledge and tools addressing these deeper layers, then the yoga practice becomes a richer, more fulfilling experience for the teacher and the student. It is now when the practice becomes transformational. This teacher training is broken into three parts, which can be offered in various ways to suit the needs of a community. Ample time in each of the three modules is directed towards practice teaching, creating wise sequencing, and learning effective hands on adjustments, with valuable feedback from the instructor.
