What is Rasa Yoga?
Rasa Yoga is a revolutionary style of yoga that is a bhakti fusion of creative vinyasa flow, sacred alignment, myth, mantra, mudra, meditation, and ritual. Inspired by a deep desire to grow, Rasa Yoga is modern day flow style of yoga infused with technique, spirit and sacred intention.

“I started mentoring with Greta over a year ago. As we dove deeply into several areas of teaching, such as sequencing, theming, philosophy, and planning workshops, Greta provided an open and safe space for me to grow. She challenged me to turn within for answers, to cultivate my meditation, contemplation and self-study. This allowed me to learn, explore and expand mentally, physically, and creatively. I can honestly say that this mentorship has profoundly transformed my teaching. I now have confidence as a teacher, and I finally feel as though I am speaking and teaching from my own experience, in my own voice, from my heart.” – Marjan Harbison
