"If in one's body one contemplates over space in all directions simultaneously without any thought-construct then all creation becomes space"
Vijnana Bhaivara Tantra  
"This body itself is the Kurukshetra, the place of divine sacrifice"
Transmission of Yoga comes from feeling during practice.
The teaching is to impart according to the situation the depth of one's practice.
"Taking his seat in the middle breath between the path of inhalation and exhalation, abiding in his own nature, the unmovable asana that he acquires is the real one "
Shiva Sutra  
Christian Pisano offers a 3 year cycle of apprenticeship (Introductory Teacher's certificate).
