Kusama Rao of Ruchikala will be teaching Yin Yoga classes at the farm this summer! Join us for the first one on July 23rd. Mats will be provided if you dont have one. See you there!

Kusama Rao began her yoga journey at seven years old. An early riser, she would wake up with her father and do his morning Surya Namaskar sun salutation ritual. While she didn't quite understand the importance this ritual held by her father at the time, she did find a sense early morning calm and connection to place. In Kumi's late teens, in search of help with issues of depression and anxiety, she returned to yoga and deepened her practice.

After becoming a member at Unfold studios in Portland as a dedicated student she began to turn more exploring philosophical parts of the practice. Having practiced yoga all her life, she felt like she needed to devote herself to further deepening her practice on a philosophical level. In the fall of 2017 she started her 200-hour teacher training through The Samaraya Center with Molly Lannon Kenny and completed in spring 2018.

Kumi truly believes in the benefits of this practice, that by learning more about our ourselves we can begin to heal and hold space for others. Everyone deserves to feel joy and safety in their bodies; She aims to create a nurturing and respectful space where you can come exactly how you are and reconnect with yourself

About the style of yoga:
While aiming to teach all styles of yoga, a particular highlight for Kumi has been Yin Yoga.

Yin yoga is a slow moving quiet practice. Poses are low to the ground and held for 4-5 minutes at a time. The poses are held with the muscles more relaxed in hopes to increase blood flow to the joints and the connective tissue. This practice is great for releasing tight fascia and often times can help with chronic pain. This practice is all about connecting deeper to yourself and listening to messages within the body. It's a wonderful primer to setting up a home meditation practice.
