More About our Yoga Teacher, Uma Vijaya

Uma believes in Yoga as a way of life that allows for meaningful transformation. She sees that through Yogic practices one can bridge deeper levels of consciousness, empowering one’s own healing and clarity of perception. She has experienced this through her own practice and while working with other people. With her teaching method, you can start practicing Yoga wherever you are, whoever you are! Uma hs an accredited Yoga Therapy Diploma (C-IAYT), over 800 Hours of Yoga Therapy training, over 600 Hours of Yoga Teacher training, and ten years of daily practice, six years spent studying in India. I believe that we all have a deep capacity to heal and transform not only ourselves, but the collective. No matter where, who, how you are or how far away ‘Yoga’ as a concept may feel, the potential is immense and with the right guidance and sustained effort, anyone can deepen their capacity for joy, presence and wellness in body, mind and spirit. On the retreats Uma will also be offering traditional Ayurvedic Massage (Abhyanga), Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Thai Yoga Massage and an intuitive blend of them all.
