“Rasa is the self tasting the Self” – Sri Abhinavagupta
Rasa has many beautiful meanings. In the arts, rasa is the transforming “taste” that brings inner satisfaction to the beauty of dance, music or painting. Within yoga and Ayurveda, rasa is our “inner juice” associated with longevity, joy, devotion, and flexibility. Without rasa, it is said, our experience of yoga and life, becomes “dry, rigid, routine.”
Experience a full-spectrum yoga practice intensive into the art of Rasa – realisation and sequencing to your life – integrating the essential understanding of embodying rasa from tantra, the arts and Ayurveda.
In this five-day teacher training, Shiva will offer the theory and practice of Rasa Vinyasa by exploring three consummate rasas:
- Vira (strength, potency)
- Sringara (divine love and sensuality)
- Shanti (living peace)
We will experience the “fourth level” of prana flow (after foundation, elemental and chakra) that cultivates the power of alchemical yoga. It 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.
