Join Greta and a heart collective of special guests for the ultimate opportunity to refine your practice and become an extraordinary teacher of yoga. This 300-hour training is founded in the style of Rasa Yoga and, when combined with a 200-hr certificate from any school, will qualify you for a 500-Hour RYT Certification with Yoga Alliance. The course will also count towards your Rasa Yoga 1008-Hour Certification.

The Rasa Yoga 300 Hour Teacher Training is an advanced training of progressive, transformational study that will help you to increase your efficacy and potency, build confidence, distinguish yourself, and dramatically improve your clarity, focus, and skillset as a teacher of yoga. Rasa Yoga aims to guide you on the path of your own Dharma (Divine Life Purpose) with essential teaching skills, sacred wisdom and practical tools to support you on and off the mat.

The program is broken into 6-modules, each consisting of 45 hours of study and 5 non-contact hours. Each module will immerse you in a focused topic, while also taking you deeper into the practices and teaching of pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra, myth, and teaching skills. You are encouraged to take the modules in order, but it is not mandatory and will depend upon your prior experience. As a whole, the six modules provide a comprehensive in-depth exploration into a broad spectrum of yoga wisdom, from ancient to the most cutting-edge.

WHAT IS RASA YOGA?

Rasa Yoga is a revolutionary style of yoga that dives deeply into powerful studies that combine both the logical mind with intuitive flow, the scientific with the mystical traditions, and the conscious with the subconscious to unlock the creative energy of you. The style is a 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 yoga infused with technique, spirit and sacred intention.

Rasa Yoga was founded by internationally celebrated teacher Sianna Sherman as a platform for transformation dedicated to the love of yoga, community, creativity, and soul alchemy. The teachings can be applied to both vinyasa and hatha yoga classes.

TESTIMONIALS

“Greta Hill is a most Radiant Yogini, Master teacher, and Priestess. Her knowledge is both vast and deep with profound understanding how to live yoga in the whole of life. She is a true leader of community and transmits the Spirit of Yoga through her words, heart, and actions. Greta is a leading teacher of Rasa Yoga and the first initiated teacher to offer the 300-hour Teacher Training for the Rasa Yoga “Soul Alchemy” School. She is an expert guide for yoga teachers to refine their skills and step into full power with joyful authenticity. Greta has my full trust and her dedication to transformation with the “wish to grow” is a tremendous inspiration for me.” – Sianna Sherman, international yogini: visionary of Rasa Yoga & Mythic Yoga Flow; co-founder of Urban Priestess

Greta is the biggest yogi master I have ever been in the presence of in my entire yoga career or had access to for so many repeated times to learn. She is brave, knowledgeable, confident and just an ocean of unending understanding and compassion of yoga. She does all this with incredible humbleness. She certainly had far more experience or knowledge than I ever hope to have but never makes you feel like she is superior to you or better as a yogi. Instead you always get the vibe she sees herself as an eternal student of yoga and life just like you as a trainee in the program and it just makes you feel so hopeful that you are a beginner and do not need to know it all after the training. Just like Greta you are an eternal student too! There is no end point just the ever present journey. Go Greta! I just love her! – Chelsey Ocean

If something about a yoga teacher training intrigues you I encourage you to get to know Bala and Greta. These two together are an absolute perfect union. What I enjoyed was the time spent on deepening asana, prana, and yogic philosophy and how it will stretch your mind, body, and soul in ways that will soften yet build a deep resilience within you. In addition, it’s clear Greta is a soul that has dedicated her life to yoga and her love for this practice is poured out in every hour, question, and shared experience. If you are ready for an adventure, open to the unknown, and appreciate a bit of magic in your life, check out the yoga teacher training with Bala led by Greta Hill. – Susan Choi

I was already certified & teaching yoga when I took Greta’s 200-Hour Rasa Yoga Teacher Training. Even though I had already done a 200-hour, I learned and grew immensely through this process. I have a greater sense of how to hold space, and how to offer the whole of yoga in a way that feels integrated and true to myself. Greta has helped me refine my observation skills, my voice, and my understanding of students both biomechanically and energetically. I consistently feel challenged to grow under her guidance and now have many tools to offer in the classroom as well as for my own practice. The journey of yoga & teaching is never ending, and I feel very grateful to have the support of a strong, knowledgeable, and inspiring mentor like Greta. – Naomi Huober

“If you are looking for a yoga training that will fully empower you, or if you just want to refine your practice and deeply understand the teachings of yoga, I recommend you consider training with Greta Hill. Studying with Greta was a true journey of empowerment and personal growth. I have deep gratitude for Greta and for her teachings, she knows how to touch our hearts and transform our lives. Through this amazing training, Greta expresses all the love she has for yoga and teaches with her graceful personality, full of sweetness, clarity, depth and truth.” – Eduardo Monteiro, yoga teacher; Sao Paulo

“Having the opportunity to do my yoga training course with Greta Hill was simply wonderful. Greta is a very honest teacher and for this reason she passes along knowledge with very high quality, both the physical as well as spiritual components of the practice. My personal practice and teaching have become much richer by studying and practicing with her. Since 2009 I recognize her as my primary teacher and my source of inspiration. I can say that her classes are a true blend of: sweetness, precision, strength, quality, heart, integrity. I recommend her training 100%!” – Ana Paula Surita, owner of Bem Estar Wellness spa, nutritionist and yoga teacher; Brasilia

“I received my 200 hour certification with Greta in 2012 and have continued to study closely with her ever since. In addition to radically transforming my physical yoga practice and understanding the poses in greater detail, we also dove deeply into several areas of teaching, such as sequencing, theming, philosophy, and planning workshops. Greta always provided an open and safe space for us to grow. She often challenged us to turn within for answers, to cultivate not only the physical practice, but also meditation, contemplation and self-study. This allowed me to learn, explore and expand mentally, physically and creatively. I can honestly say that this training has profoundly transformed me as a student and teacher of yoga. I now have more 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, yoga teacher & health coach, Panama City
