What is Rasa Yoga?
In the spring of 2000, Sianna was introduced to the Rasa theory of yoga for the first time, and she instantly felt a flash of recognition in her heart. Sianna remembers thinking that Rasa Yoga would be a great name for a yoga school. It is with great joy that she now offer Rasa Yoga into the world!
Today, after nearly 3 decades of practicing yoga, and 24 years teaching tens of thousands of students (including thousands of yoga teachers) around the world, that vision is coming to fruition.
Rasa is the “taste, juice, and nectar”... it’s the willingness to say ‘yes’ to whatever experience we might encounter in our lives and in our psyche. Only in fully turning toward these experiences, whether joyful or painful, can we extract the essence of that experience and alchemize it into its highest frequency, which is love itself.
The practice of Rasa Yoga is a Bhakti fusion of asana, mantra, mudra, pranayama, meditation, chanting, ritual and earth prayer. Rasa is the celebration of love as the source of ALL and yoga is coming home to the whole of YOU!
