30hr RASAMAYA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
LIVE YOUR PRACTICE.
4 life-changing elemental modules + 9 core emotions (rasas)
+ yoga sequencing, anatomy & philosophy
This course was created for 200hr, 500hr, and 1000hr yoga teachers as well as dedicated students looking to deepen their practice. Each elemental module in this course contains education on asana, anatomy, philosophy, mudras, and pranayama and is structured to be a sensory experience that has the feeling of a retreat instead of a workshop. Morning sessions will start with soulful meditation and vinyasa yoga flow before diving into the external practices of asana, sequencing and somatic explorations. Our afternoons will be devoted to developing the internal practices of soul-digging philosophy, pranayama, meditation, and mudras. Carrie is known for her creative sequencing, and a key focus of the course is learning Rasamaya elementally based sun salutes and gaining skills to create your own innovative, authentic yoga sequences that are guaranteed to enrich your practice and your life. You will leave these days exhausted, but deeply satisfied.
Rasamaya translates from Sanskrit as “fluid.” At its simplest, Rasamaya is a lifestyle that empowers you to seek out the beauty in your life every single day. It's about finding a fluid life both on and off the mat. As a methodology, Rasamaya intelligently merges integrative medicine, neuroscience, and exercise science with the wisdom of yoga philosophy as it applies to modern life. It utilizes the ancient theory of the nine major rasas (or core emotions) as a base to create inspiration in yoga classes. These nine core emotions are wonder (adbhuta rasa), fear (bhayanaka rasa), joy (hasya rasa), disgust (vibhatsa rasa), anger (raudra rasa), courage (veera rasa), compassion (karuna rasa), love (sringara rasa) and peace (shanta rasa).
These nine are everything. To intimately know them is to deeply know yourself and your life.
