40 hr Rasa Yoga Teacher Training with Carrie Tyler, Director of Dover Yoga/ Creator of Rasa Yoga
Rasa Yoga is a style of yoga which focuses on working with one of the nine major rasas, or sacred juices that sustain our life, through an entire flowing yoga class. The nine rasas we will explore are: shringara: love, vibhatsa: dissatisfaction, shanta: peace, vira: strength, bhayanaka: fear, hasya: joy, raudra: anger, karuna: sadness, & adbhuta: wonder. Rasa classes incorporate yogic philosophy & discussion, chanting, pranayama, meditation, cleansing kriyas and asana flows from beginner to advanced. Students often remark that these classes are complete in nature and leave the body expanded and the mind grounded.
In this teacher training we will devote our mornings to an in depth exploration of the chakra system which is the backbone of rasa yoga. Each of the seven major energy centers will be explored as well as asana flows based around each chakra. Our afternoons will be devoted to Rasa Theory, its roots in Bharata’s Natyashastra (an ancient doctrine on the arts in India) and its implication in Indian art and culture. Time will also be devoted to deeply explore the meaning of the nine rasas the structuring of rasa yoga casses and how to apply rasa theory to your teaching. The training counts for CEU credits with the Yoga Alliance. This teacher training is offered only to those who are already teaching yoga or have instructor permission.
