About this trip

Come join Jeanne Heileman in the glorious Alpine region of Arosa, Switzerland to dive deep into the first of three modules in the Tantra Flow Yoga™ 300 Hour Teacher Training.  We will be staying at the luxurious Valsana Apartements, which will be closed to all other guests.  Come grow your yoga knowledge in one of the most beautiful regions of the world staying in your own private room in a first-class apartment with stunning views of the Swiss Alps.  We will be practicing in their spectacular Yoga Room with floor-to-ceiling windows that bring in the mountaneous beauty.


Tantra Flow Yoga™ is an accredited school with Yoga Alliance.  You are welcome to participate in the course as a step towards completing all three modules of the Teacher Training, or join us for this one amazing experience. Part Two and Part Three modules are scheduled and listed on Jeanne's website, www.jeanneheileman.com.  Registration is not open until the beginning of the previous module.

Tantra Flow Yoga™ 300 Hour Program

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, which consists 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.  Yet, there is so much more to yoga than excercise, and that information is rarely available for students and teachers.


In the Tantra Flow Yoga300 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. The practice can now become transformational.


This Teacher Training is broken into three parts, focusing on the three innermost layers/Koshas, known as the Pranamaya Kosha (Energy Layer), the Manomaya Kosha (Mental Layer), and the Vijanamaya Kosha (Wisdom Layer.).  Each module takes the student deeper towards more subtle practices while also exploring the energetics of specific asana categories.  When one can weave the inner practices with outer action, this leads to the full embodiment of yoga in practice.   


There will be time in each module for the student to apply new material through practice teaching, creating wise sequencing, and learning effective hands on adjustments, with valuable feedback from the instructor.  

Part One; Pranamaya Kosha

This 100-hour module introduces the student to the Pranic Body, sometimes referred to as the Energy Body. The anatomy of respiration is studied, which leads to a variety of Pranayama techniques and the application of Bandhas. Students also learn about the Nadis, the Chakras and how the energy of each Chakra affects different poses. This module focuses extensively on the sequencing, instructing and giving adjustments for Laterals, Backbends and Forward Fold asanas.


The main goal of this module for the student is to leave with the tools to instill a Personal Pranayama Practice, with wisdom on how to teach Pranayama to students.

Students will learn:

  • Smart sequencing and intelligent instruction in the categories of Laterals, Backbends and Forward Folds, that leads to positive energetic effects for the student. Sequencing asana now becomes an alchemy to help the student.
  • The anatomy of respiration and how to improve our breathing for physical and mental health;
  • A variety of Pranayama Techniques and how to teach them to a class;
  • The Pranavayus and how they work in our body to help or hinder a pose;
  • The definition of the Bandhas, how to apply them and how to teach these subtle actions;
  • The Nadis, currents of energy that run throughout the body and affect our left and right brain and equilibrium;
  • The Chakras, wheels of energy that dwell along our spine, which lead to ease or limitations in our daily life; 
  • How the energy of each Chakra affects different poses and information on helping students who are experiencing limitations;
  • Practice teaching to improve a teacher’s skill in communication;
  • Creating wise sequencing that keeps the student safe while also interested;
  • Effective hands on adjustments in the categories of Laterals, Backbends and Forward Folds;
  • Constant valuable feedback from the instructor.

Please Note:  The Training begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday, 11 October with a Welcome Dinner and ends at 9:00 pm Thursday, 22 October, 2020.  It is highly recommended that you plan your travel to check in to the apartment and get settled before the Welcome Dinner at 6:00 pm.  Plan on checking out the morning of Friday, 23 October.  

Who is Eligible for the Training

  • Yoga teachers who have completed a 200 Hour Teacher Training and want to advance their studies to a 300-Hour Registration, which enables them to receive Yoga Alliance 500-Hour Status. 
  • Yoga teachers who have completed a 300, or 500 Hour Training that has not focused significantly on the subtle layers of yoga, or who just want to learn more;
  • Devoted yoga students who are not teachers but are hungry to deepen their own practice.

Why This Location

I was introduced to the Valsana Apartements in the Swiss Alps by a yoga student and fell in love with the concept of being in a glorious environment, surrounded by pure air and lots of privacy. Could there be a better place to work with one's own Prana and enrich the inner life?  We will be in Arosa, Switzerland at an exclusive resort during the off-season. This means that the apartment building and adjacent hotel will be closed to all other visitors except for us.  It is an exclusive cocoon just for those who are coming to dive into deep practice.  You will be offered space for reflection and time for walks in the gorgeous region.  


Each two-bedroom apartment has a working kitchen with full amenities and there is an open grocery store on the first floor of our building.  While some local restaurants will be closed, we will be able to practice living as yogis balancing the study with cooking food to suit your needs and nutrition.  In this way, you will return home with more than yoga skills in your pocket, you will also have many new positive habits in your routine.

Who is Jeanne

Jeanne Heileman was introduced to yoga in 1985 while studying to be an actress.  From thereon, she kept practicing no matter where her acting career took her around the globe.  In 1996 she put a pause on her life and took her first 200 hour yoga teacher training, In only a matter of months, she began teaching full time in Los Angeles.  Los Angeles provided access to some of the greatest yoga teachers and Jeanne spent almost every free moment in workshops learning from the best.  She is grateful to the the following teachers for their knowledge and inspiration:  John Friend, Desiree Rumbaugh, Tias Little, Kofi Busia, Elise Browning Miller, Shiva Rea, Annie Carpenter, Lisa Walford and more. 


In 2001 she began studying deeply with Rod Stryker and became a Certified Level II ParaYoga teacher.  In 2004 YogaWorks purchased the studio where she taught.  Jeanne took their 200 hour training and quickly joined the YogaWorks Teacher Training faculty and taught 200 and 300 hour trainings for them for over 10 years. In 2013 she created the Tantra Flow Yoga™ program to fill an empty spot of Pranayama (breathing techniques,) Dharana (concentration techniques and awareness of the mind,) and Dhyana (meditation techniques and awareness of one's Wisdom,) that other yoga trainings do not address so deeply.  Since 2014 Tantra Flow Yoga™ has been offering 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings around the globe . When not traveling, Jeanne is based in Los Angeles where she teaches at YogaWorks.
