RASA YOGA 
Teacher Trainings

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 weaves together asana, mantra, mudra, pranayama, meditation and chanting… along with tantra, shadow work, ritual, and a deep reverence for nature.

It honors the many traditions and lineages of yoga, while awakening your authentic creativity as an individual in the modern world.

LIVE Teacher Trainings

Rasa Yoga LIVE Teacher Trainings are immersive and deeply transformational experiences. This Mandala serves as the basis for the curriculum – and we dive deep into each of the gateways during the the 3 modules of each live program.



 

200-Hour LIVE Teacher Trainings

The 200-hour LIVE Rasa Yoga Teacher Training is comprised of 3 comprehensive modules – each consisting of 60 hours of study – plus an additional 20 non-contact hours. Upon successful completion of the 200-hour training, teachers receive a 200-hour certification with Yoga Alliance.

MODULE 1: Ganesha ~ Ground to Grow

The Ganesha module sets up the foundation for an integrated yoga practice. Learn the names and forms of essential yoga poses along with basic pranayama, alignment principles and healthy biomechanics of asana practice. This module initiates the study of yoga philosophy and how the ancient practices apply to modern-day life.

MODULE 2: Lakshmi ~ Reveal Your Radiance

The Lakshmi module dives into the heart of the practices with increasing commitment and invites the practitioner to willingly enter the churning phase of practice and learning how to teach the practices. Learn how to structure a class and how to articulate the shapes and forms of the poses with biomechanical awareness. Functional anatomy will be introduced for the upper and lower body as well as beginning adjustments with therapeutic understanding. Learn set sequences for both solar and lunar asana offerings to begin practice teaching with friends. Beginning sequencing will be taught in conjunction with basic voicing skills. The group energy co-creates safe space and refuge to begin teaching in small groups.

MODULE 3: Hanuman ~ Serve with Love

The Hanuman module builds an effective bridge for the bold leap into the world as a yoga teacher. The teacher is prepared with a solid foundation of understanding asana biomechanics, adjustments, class themes, basic anatomy, philosophical understanding of the yoga tradition, and steady practice that informs the teacher with living wisdom as an embodied vessel. Every trainee will be initiated to teach for the entire group with direct and loving feedback from Sianna. Emerge with your unique voice and share the practice of yoga with Love.


300-Hour LIVE Teacher Trainings

The 300-hour Rasa Yoga Teacher Training is comprised of 3 comprehensive modules – each consisting of 90 hours of study – plus an additional 30 non-contact hours. Students are automatically accepted if they have completed the 200-hour Rasa Yoga Teacher Training. Students with a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification from another school or method may apply for the 300-hour teacher training with Sianna. Upon successful completion of the 300-hour training, teachers receive a 500-hour certification with Yoga Alliance.

MODULE 1: Durga ~ Unleash Your Courage

The Durga module dives into the heart of teaching with stabilizing commitment, turns to the study of Tantra and asks the teacher to step bravely into their heart to ride the tiger to their transformative growth edge. This comprehensive module includes refinement of biomechanics, deep understanding of the key patterns of movement, the art of sequencing, the art of adjustments, Body Temple therapeutics, Tantric integration of mantra, mudra and meditation, stepping into the power of authentic voice, creating meaningful class themes and effective teaching for different levels of students.

MODULE 2: Krishna ~ Play Your Edge

The Krishna module opens the spirit of play and creativity for teaching once the fundamental skills are stabilized and anchored. Creativity is the juice of life and yoga frees up the restrictions that block the creative flow. As the teacher gains confidence in their own unique gifts, they learn to give voice to the sacred play of life unfolding within the practices of yoga. This comprehensive module reviews all the fundamental teaching methodology and opens up the creative gateways of teaching through storytelling, sequencing and theming. As Krishna shines like the sun and glows as the moon, there will be an emphasis on the balance of Solar and Lunar teachings, on Fire and Nectar mandala integration in the overall structure of personal practice and teachings.

MODULE 3: Shiva-Shakti ~ Ignite Your Magic

The Shiva-Shakti module magnetizes all the practices together to quantum spring the teacher into the teaching of yoga. The intensity of this module requires the teacher to rise to the occasion, meet challenges, face fears, and ultimately learn how to surrender and offer in the heart fire of Love and Service. This module is a powerful catalyst for the alchemy of teaching and the ultimate refinement of the teacher as a clear vessel of embodied transmission. This comprehensive module includes
