Rasa Vinyasa - The Art of Movement Alchemy

Experience a full-spectrum yoga practice intensive into the art of Rasa Vinyasa™- an approach to sequencing vinyasa yoga drawing from yogic arts, tantra, and Ayurveda. In this teacher training, Shiva offers the theory and practice of Rasa Vinyasa by exploring three consummate rasas: Vira (strength, potency), Sringara (divine love and sensuality) and Shanti (living peace). You will explore the power of alchemical yoga that is sequenced in harmony with the energetic state of the day for activation, healing, and rejuvenation to bring balance and “juice” to your practice, teaching, and life. You will learn 5 advanced Rasa Prana Vinyasa Namaskars and solar and lunar Rasa sequences. This advanced module is only offered by Shiva worldwide in a week long immersive format.
