Rasa Yoga Teacher Training
Heart. Breath. Alignment.
on an alchemical journey of the soul.
My name is Sianna Sherman, founder of Rasa Yoga.
When I began practicing yoga nearly 30 years ago, I could never have imagined the journey that lie ahead.
Teaching in dozens of countries around the world…
Discovering my unique voice and my gift for transmission…
Expanding my capacity for self-expression and service…
Again and again, I’ve been called to stretch and grow, to discover what’s possible beyond my comfort zone.
Creativity. Community. Soul Alchemy.
The full nectar 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.
Your destiny awaits.
What Is Rasa Yoga?
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 tradition and lineage of yoga, while awakening your authentic creativity as a yoga teacher in the modern world.
A Tantric Approach to Integration & Embodiment
Tantra is about integration and embodiment. Our curriculum integrates the Fire & Nectar practices of yoga, radical affirmation and weaving the most beautiful tapestry for your life.
ASANA, MANTRA, MUDRA, PRANAYMANA & MEDITATION
In Rasa Yoga, each Fire & Nectar Sadhana is a garland of Asana, Mantra, Mudra, Pranayama, Meditation & more. Asana is the sacred movement of yoga that celebrates our body temple. Mantra clears the way and heals the heart. Mudra recalibrates the subtle body. Pranayama is the Spirit of the Breath & Meditation is the way in which we cultivate our intimacy with Source Energy, to discover the abiding presence of Spirit within.
Shadow Work & Soul Alchemy
If you want an expansion of your life force energy, you must begin by turning to the places where your energy is being knotted up or depleted. As you consciously and lovingly turn toward the “caves you fear to enter”, these knots will unravel and your energy will be liberated… emerging as the full creative expression of yourself.
Functional Anatomy & Therapeutic Yoga
Rasa Yoga is at the leading edge of using functional anatomy to remap habitual patterns present in the body, in order to prevent or even reverse injury. Many yogis get stuck in movement patterns that cause discomfort or harm to the body over time. Our approach is anchored in a deep understanding of the body and movement therapy.
Awakening Your Authentic Voice
The world needs your unique gifts. As you move through each stage of this program, you will become more grounded in yourself, and learn to trust in and share your authentic voice with confidence. A rich fabric of empowerment underlies our curriculum and community, supporting you as you come home to your deepest truth.
Global Heart Tribe
The Rasa Yoga community embraces heart-centered yogis from around the world. Our tribe is growing year after year, welcoming those who are ready to activate their unique gifts, in service to their communities and to the earth.
“Sianna has taken all of her skills and combined them to create a unique style of teaching yoga that is deeply satisfying to the body, mind and heart of all levels of students.”
Desiree Rumbaugh, International Master Yoga Teacher
“Sianna has a gift for seeing the best in people and still finds new ways to make them shine. Anyone that has the chance to study with her is blessed and will come out with real teaching skills and a new sense of how to create magic.”
Jason Nemer, Founder of Acro Yoga

Rasa Yoga Teacher Training
“My teaching skills have improved, I relate to the contents of the program all the time and I use them as tools in my teaching to help my fellow yogis and my students. The program content is great and it is available all the time as a reference that you can go back to as needed. Great value for your money & highly recommended.”
Jean Claude, Rasa Yoga 300-Hour Graduate & Yoga Teacher
“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.”
Erika Laurenson, Psychotherapist, Rasa Yoga 300-Hour Graduate & Yoga Teacher
“Sianna’s teachings are rich in knowledge from mantra to mudra. Her ability to connect is so personal that I would forget that I was online. Sianna is the embodiment of Rasa Yoga filled with subtlety, fierceness and love. She shares her proficiency, insight and intelligence with kindness, commitment and playfulness. I have been a yoga practitioner for over three decades. Rasa Yoga provided me with tons of new and insightful information. Sianna and her teammates, as well as, all the beautiful yogis I shared the course with widened my perspective as a student and a teacher.”
Rasa Yoga had me falling in love with this path of yoga over and over again. It will with you, too!
Nancy Dales, E-RYT 500
“When I first met Sianna I didn’t yet know where I was headed. I thought I did at the time, but I was to prove myself wrong. I had no idea the potential that was residing within me, and at first, when Sianna helped me encounter that, I was scared. I took baby steps, which feltlike giant Hanuman leaps, and by the end of that year, I was an established yoga teacher. Sianna truly helped me aim my arrow and target it with love and compassion. She is truly a teacher of the heart, and I hold her dear. Namaste.”
Isa Raim, long time student to Sianna & Yoga Teacher
“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.”
Sarah Chouinard, Family Medical Doctor, Rasa Yoga 300-Hour Graduate & Yoga Teacher
“Rasa offers precise technical instruction, sweet heart teaching of myth, mudra and mantra, and deep, soulful connection to philosophy that will not only open, but EXPAND your heart offering to the world. The beauty of being a Rasika means to be connected to the very essence of Self and so then, to the deeper Divine Universe holding us all.”
Donna Seed, long time student to Sianna & Yoga Teacher
Frequently Asked Questions
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 your dedication, 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 online course.
There are many benefits to taking the Rasa Yoga Teacher Training online, including:
- The ability to study and integrate at your own pace, from the comfort of home
- Economically and environmentally-friendly (no travel costs)

Also, there will be a private Facebook group exclusively for those who are enrolled on the online teacher training. The Rasa Yoga Heart Tribe will be monitoring the page and Sianna will also contribute. Similar questions come up for everyone so I encourage you to use the public forums to create a strong community of support for each other. For any logistical questions you can email Alli Shafer at email@example.com.
Yes, you may choose to pay in full or select our 12-month payment plan option.
