However over 95% of people relish the freedom of not having to decide or choose what to do each day, and go with the full programme which is a well tried recipe which we have been running and improving on since 1999.

Uma met yoga in 1969, at the age of four, and fell in love. She’s been practising ever since, and teaching yoga since 1994.

A yoga therapist with special expertise in yoga therapy for women’s health, Uma is a mother of three, and has written four books on yoga for women, including the massive Yoni Shakti, and two books on Yoga Nidra, including Yoga Nidra Made Easy (Hay House 2022) and Nidra Shakti, An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Yoga Nidra.

Uma works internationally, sharing yoga retreats, trainings and empowerments that support the natural arising of prana shakti: the power of life.

She trains specialist teachers in Total Yoga Nidra and Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy for menstrual and menopausal health, pregnancy, birth, and postnatal recovery.

Uma is certified as a Yoga Therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapy.
