Welcome to Yoga with Romi

Heal & Transform

Welcome to the Yoga page of Romi Cumes Somatic Therapy, PC. It is my privilege to guide you through transformative Yoga and Somatic Healing experiences. My compassionate approach encourages an intuitive connection with the body’s profound wisdom and lived experiences, fostering pathways for inner growth, strength, and healing. Drawing from my extensive background in massage therapy, bodywork, somatic psychotherapy, intuitive healing, and dance, my teaching creates a unique and organic yoga experience. Discover more about my approach and background below. I invite you to explore our site further to gain a comprehensive understanding of our body-mind-centered services.

Yoga is a powerful tool that develops somatic (body) intelligence, builds resilience, and improves mindful presence. Think of a large tree as a metaphor for your practice and how it evolves. The tree’s branches are constantly growing, changing and expanding. When we create space for the tree to reach towards the light, and dedicate time to nourish its soil, we improve the cultivation of strength, beauty, and vibrant health.

My Yoga Philosophy

For the past 25 years, the practice and study of yoga has offered me deeply transformative and healing experiences. The insights I have developed along my yoga path have been fundamental in my work with others, facilitating growth of the body, mind, and spirit. In my practice and instruction, I integrate my knowledge of psychology, anatomy, fitness, intuitive healing and bodywork to deepen somatic awareness and develop technique. My intuition and skill also nourish the deeper layers of heart and spirit.

Somatic Yoga Approach

Just as no two people are the same, my unique yoga approach symbolizes the ever-shifting, always-expanding nature of the human experience. I cater my yoga instruction to the needs of each student, supporting the emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual processes that may arise during our practice. We flow more freely through life when we create space  for self-care and offer the body loving presence. With that intention, I integrate compassionate, healing energy into my sequences, empowering all bodies to uncover innate body wisdom. My yoga teaching style is eclectic and has been influenced by various yoga approaches, as well as dance and acrobatics. 

Private & Group Yoga in Santa Barbara, CA

I love sharing the insight I’ve gained over my years of experience and in-depth study and enjoy infusing humor into rigid thought processes. Students often  share with me that they appreciate my light-hearted, yet technically detailed approach. Classes are aimed to help almost every kind of body develop their understanding of anatomy and yoga philosophy in a practical and compassionate way. Almost every class focuses on strength-development and fascia (connective tissue) exploration, in order to support injury-prevention, rejuvenation and healing.

Within both my private sessions and group classes, I lay the foundation for strength, awareness, and flexibility. These sessions are a fusion of diverse yoga styles, movement techniques, and strength training methodologies. My focal points include pranayama (breath exercises), precise postural alignment, strength cultivation, and mindfulness. The intensity of the practice remains adaptable to individual’s experience and mobility level, which creates a safe, enjoyable and comprehensive yoga class suitable for all body types.
