Magnolia Rasak

Magnolia Rasak is a gifted yoga teacher, and dedicated practitioner, who began teaching yoga in 2002. Magnolia is drawn towards the innate wisdom held in the body, and her classes utilize the physical to cultivate a deep and playful exploration between mind, body, breath and spirit. Magnolia has traveled the world studying various forms of yoga and movement, and as a yoga instructor, she interweaves her background in Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Tantra yoga into her teachings. She aims to guide her students towards a state of physical strength, inner harmony, and self transformation through conscious movement and breath.

Magnolia has been deeply influenced by the teachings of the ancient sages including Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Paramahansa Yogananda, Sri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaji, and more currently the teachings of Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī (Amma), Sri Prem Baba, Adyashanti, and Mooji.

Magnolia’s classes offer a balance of effort and ease, action and surrender. Her teachings are a practice of breath, asana, and moving meditation, that start and return to the space of the heart. “There is enough rush in the world, come to the mat to move and breathe with mindful awareness, and be moved into the space of the heart.” Magnolia
Magnolia offers regular weekly studio classes in her hometown of Santa Cruz as well as yoga teacher trainings, workshops, retreats, and festival classes around the world.
