I invite you to consider that you are on this page – at this moment in time – for a reason.
Something has called you here to take the next steps in your evolution… as a student and teacher of yoga, and as a spiritual seeker with a deep desire to grow.
I want you to know what's possible when you embrace your power, practice deeply, think out of the box and say yes to your transformative growth edge.
The full spectrum and juiciness of life.
This is Rasa Yoga.
Your journey will be unique to you...but it begins, right now, with a choice.
To honor your soul’s calling.
Rasa Yoga is dedicated to the Alchemy of Yoga and the Artistry of Life.
Rasa is a Sanskrit word that means essence, juice, taste, nectar and feeling. Rasa Yoga is a soulful fusion of asana, mantra, mudra, myth, pranayama, meditation, functional anatomy, Tantric yoga philosophy, shadow work, and soul alchemy. It honors tradition, lineage, and the roots of yoga, while awakening your authentic creativity as a yoga teacher in the modern world.
Rasa Yoga is a fusion of both form and flow. We use leading-edge biomechanics, functional anatomy, and creative patterns of movement to support optimal strength, flexibility, and vitality in the body temple.
Rasa Yoga weaves together the intelligence of Mantra and Mudra, the science of sound vibration and healing power of the subtle body. Rasa Yoga honors the spirit of the breath and practices of meditation to cultivate a clear mind, expansive heart, and alignment with Source Connection.
The philosophical view of Rasa Yoga is anchored in Tantra, which has numerous lineages. The central view of this school is that embodiment is a gift to be celebrated, and yoga is a means of transformation so that each one of us can bring our creative energy into the world for the benefit of all beings.
In Rasa Yoga we track our shadow, the parts of ourselves that we reject, deny, or refuse to see. This brings awareness to liberate stuck energy and live in the world with true integrity. We embrace the full spectrum of human experience, cultivate emotional intelligence and wield the energy to weave the tapestry of our lives.
Rasa Yoga is dedicated to awakening each person’s authentic voice, creativity, and confidence. A rich fabric of empowerment underlies our curriculum and community, supporting each practitioner in coming home to their deepest truth.
We are committed to protecting our planet by initiating seva projects in our local and global communities that protect, honor, and serve the Earth. We plant trees for all students in our live and online trainings as a symbol of our commitment to sustainable leadership.
The Rasa Yoga Collective is a global family that embraces heart-centered yogins from around the world. We seek to create inclusive spaces where practitioners from diverse backgrounds and cultures feel welcomed and ready to activate their unique gifts in service to their communities and the world.

"Rasa Yoga is the first yoga style I have encountered in two decades of yoga, which merges so many different (and often neglected) aspects of yoga in one embodied, intelligent and heartfelt practice. I am still blown away by both the online and live Rasa Yoga teacher training programs, as well as by Mythic Yoga Flow. All of Sianna Sherman's offerings radiate a wealth of knowledge, a depth of wisdom, and an authentic soulful expression of yoga (on and off the mat) that is hard to find. In Rasa Yoga I have finally found a home."
“Because it is online, I was initially concerned that I wouldn’t feel the connection and depth that I was seeking. I shouldn’t have worried… as with everything that Sianna does, from the quality of the ever evolving information to the ease of layout and the extraordinary guests that she attracts, you can feel her authenticity and deep study into the mysteries of life, as the tie that binds her projects to her life. I’m so glad that I made this investment and I use it daily.”
“Sianna Sherman has a golden heart and the way she presents Rasa Yoga is a great gift for the soul. Rasa Yoga honours the tradition & lineage of Yoga and also embraces Shadow work, Ritual, individual creativity and accountability, community collaboration and a deep reverence for the Earth. You are living and learning through your Yoga daily. Inside the group you are showing up and allowing the yoga stories, the life stories, asanas, mudras, mantras, mythology, pranayama and shadow work, to flow in and through you and your practice.”
“There is so much that I could say about the online teacher training. It is a treasure. However, I will point to one video in particular. In Hanuman Darshana, Sianna covers the definition of Bhakti, the Hanuman stories, Lila, the three malas, the concept of Ishta Devata, the 5 vayus, the 5 faces of Hanuman, and the 5 koshas. That’s just one lesson! Any one of those concepts is unknown to many yoga teachers. Her dedication to us, her students, shines through her every word. Sianna shows up so fully in this course. She is creating amazing teachers with all that she conveys. She is a true master at making the teachings accessible and useful. She offers a way to understand esoteric concepts such as energetic anatomy and unity consciousness in playful, approachable ways. This body of offerings demonstrates Sianna’s dedication, generosity, and pure heart. It is time and money well spent. Give yourself the gist of these teachings. They will stay with you.”
“Rasa yoga teacher training was a truly transformative experience for me. Not only did I greatly deepen both my skills as a yoga practitioner and my understanding of the history and spirituality of yoga, I also learned to feel more confident, articulate, and expressive. Greta and Sianna have built a fantastic community in Rasa that is inclusive to all, playful, and perfectly balances a retrospective look at the best learnings from yoga teachings of the past with forward-looking intuition into the yoga world that lies before us. The mix of physical yoga, spiritual yoga, song and art is truly what I needed to begin my journey as an embodied Rasa yogi. Thank you!!”
"I knew I wanted to take this training the moment I saw Sianna was offering it. And it exceeded my expectations: it's an outstanding and potent training, taught with total passion & dedication by Sianna and her amazing team. It will refine your teaching skills in everything from sequencing, theming, alignment, voicing, holding space and much more. It weaves the ancient wisdom of Tantra into the teachings in a way that feels relevant and accessible. And it's also a deep dive into yourself (in the safety of the supportive and loving space Sianna skilfully created for the group) offering much wisdom and healing that will nourish you in your life as much as in your teaching. You'll learn to attune to your heart & to trust and express yourself, to unblock the parts of you that feel stuck & limited, to alchemize your challenges into opportunities to grow and strengthen. All of these will help you find your fullest & unique expression as a teacher & in all aspects of your life."

The Rasa Yoga Online Teacher Training is appropriate for students at most levels, however, it is not for complete beginners. If you have a regular yoga practice, you should have no problem keeping up.
Absolutely not! This program is intended for any dedicated yoga student who is ready to deepen their asana practice as well as exploring elements of mantra, mudra, tantra, pranayama, functional anatomy and biomechanics, and more. If you are curious about teaching, this is a great place to start. However, a desire to teach is not a requirement for participation in the program.
Not at all. Many of our past students have been teaching for years or even decades, and absolutely love the program. It’s an incredibly rich curriculum and a deeply transformative experience for students and teachers at every level of experience.
It really depends on you as well as your personal and professional goals. This training is an invitation, and not an obligation. That being said, most students report spending around 5-6 hours on study and practice per week.
The live and online teacher trainings are very synergistic – and many students choose to complete both. While the themes are similar, the delivery and overall experience is very different. The online course is incredibly content-rich, with lessons you can return to again and again. Once you register, you’ll have lifetime access to the curriculum, as well as all future updates to the course for the lifetime of the course.
There are many benefits to taking the Rasa Yoga Teacher Training online, including:
Study and integrate at your own pace, from the comfort of home
Economically and environmentally friendly (no travel costs)
Video content – asana, mantra, mudra, biomechanics, and more
Live Virtual Transmission and Q&A Calls with Sianna
Access to all online content and call recordings for the lifetime of this course
Future versions of the program (you’ll receive curriculum updates for free)

No, at this time these videos are not downloadable although we hope to have this available to students in the future.

The training is held on Kajabi, an interactive online platform. The training spans 6-months: there are 6 modules, each 1 month long. The lessons are released every week.
This is not a 200 or 300-hour training. The content is a comprehensive journey for a lifetime of practice and study. It is highly synergistic with the live 200 & 300-hour trainings. Upon completion you receive 70 CEC with Yoga Alliance.
Thank you Mother India for the transmission of yoga and the lineages of grace that flow forth from your sacred land. I bow to the sages, seers, rishis, yogis, yoginis and teachers who have carried the sacred flame of yoga through the ancient ages into modernity.
May we practice with pure motive for the Benefit of All Beings.
