Do you remember what first drew you to practice yoga?
Maybe you were curious about the physical benefits, or looking for a way to quiet the mental chatter, and come back to a place of stillness. Perhaps you were craving a spiritual practice, and felt called to explore the yogic path.
All of these reasons stem from the same root: a desire for transformation.
Now, let me ask you this…
At this time in your life, as a dedicated student or teacher of yoga, where is your place of transformation?
How will you continue to grow and evolve, and share your evolution with others in the spirit of service?
I INVITE YOU TO COME ALONG FOR AN ALCHEMICAL JOURNEY OF THE SOUL...
Rasa Yoga is a global platform dedicated to yoga, with a triadic vision of Creativity, Community & Soul Alchemy.
It will challenge you to transform, as well as provide sublime nourishment for your growth. You will be tested and stretched in the best of ways, so that your emergence as a teacher of yoga truly serves the greater whole of humanity.
This is so much more than a yoga teacher training.
It’s the cultivation of your Whole Self, with yoga as the embodied path of integrated consciousness.
We welcome all styles of yoga, and all levels of practitioners.
If you have a desire to raise the collective vibration, and a willingness to go through the fires of transformation in order to unlock your creativity and become a leader of true change, you are in the right place.
Together, as a Heart Tribe, let’s go the distance, discover ourselves in the journey, know ourselves, grow ourselves, and share in the way of love.
Blessings and Namaste,
WHAT IS RASA YOGA?
In the spring of 2000, I was introduced to the Rasa theory of yoga for the first time, and I instantly felt a flash of recognition in my heart. I remember thinking that Rasa Yoga would be a great name for a yoga school. It is with great joy that I 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!

- Tanja Mickwitz, Rasa Yoga 300-Hour Graduate & Yoga Teacher
"When I first met Sianna I didn’t yet know where I was headed. I thought I did at the time, but I was to prove myself wrong. I had no idea the potential that was residing within me, and at first, when Sianna helped me encounter that, I was scared. I took baby steps, which felt like giant Hanuman leaps, and by the end of that year, I was an established yoga teacher. Sianna truly helped me aim my arrow and target it with love and compassion. She is truly a teacher of the heart, and I hold her dear. Namaste"
- Erdinc Raim, long time student to Sianna & Yoga Teacher
