Whether you’re a dedicated yoga student desiring to deepen your practice, or an experienced teacher who is ready serve your community and the world in a bigger way… I welcome you.  

Rasa Yoga is my most heartfelt synthesis of yoga from 30 years of dedication as a yogini and Tantric practitioner, and more than 25 years of teaching. Our approach is anchored in a deep understanding of the body and movement therapy – yet it goes far beyond teaching skills and poses alone.  


Rasa Yoga is dedicated to the Alchemy of Yoga and the Artistry of Life.


Rasa Yoga is a soulful fusion of asana, mantra, mudra, myth, pranayama, meditation, Tantric yoga philosophy, yoga ritual, functional anatomy, shadow-tracking, emotional intelligence,  and soul alchemy. Rasa means: “ juicy, nectar, taste, feeling, and emotive essence”. 


Rasa is the juice that is distilled and squeezed out of the practices, and the essence of that juice is LOVE itself. 


This is a 3-module program, each consisting of 90 hours of study with an additional 30 non-contact hours. Students are automatically accepted if they have completed the 200-hour Teacher Training with Sianna or Rasa Yoga Teacher Trainer Faculty. Students with a 200-hour Yoga Alliance completion of teacher training from another school or method may apply for the 300-hour teacher training with Rasa Yoga.   


This 300-hour program gives you the necessary skills for a lifetime of inspired teaching.

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!
