Rasa is a Sanskrit word that describes a state of complete absorption. It originally referred to the transformational state that performing artists created internally and for their audiences. In this state, the mind is quieted and feeling takes over the body. In the context of yoga, rasa is the energy of human emotion.
The modern Rasa Yoga is designed to awaken the yogi's creativity while still honoring the traditions of yoga.
