More About our Yoga Teacher

Uma is a Yoga Therapist, a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist and an Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapist.  Her journey into Yoga and Tantra was set in motion in her late teens while experiencing persistent bouts of anxiety and depression along with gastric distress, addiction, and a constant feeling of being stuck in an existential crisis. Yoga was her way of feeling better and she would regularly attend a variety of yoga classes, as well as practicing at home from books.

Uma then spent the best of five years in India and with the help of her teachers and much dedication to learning and practice, she recovered her mental and physical health and began to experience ever evolving levels of vitality and clarity through the practice of Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda. She found her true passion and purpose - to share in Yoga as a way of life that allows for meaningful transformation.  She believes that through yogic practices one can bridge deeper levels of consciousness, empowering one’s own healing and clarity of perception.  Uma believes that we all have a deep capacity to heal and transform not only ourselves, but the entire collective.
