Uma met Yoga and Yoga Nidrā in 1969, at the age of four, and fell in love. She’s been practicing ever since, teaching since 1994, and training yoga therapists since 1999. Total Yoga Nidrā has always been at the deep heart’s core of her personal practice and trainings. Uma spent many years practising within traditional yoga teaching guru-hierarchies, and in 2011 co-founded (with her husband Nirlipta Tuli MA, C-IAYT), the post-lineage, non-hierarchical Yoga Nidrā Network. She is the author of the forthcoming Nidrā Shakti: An Encyclopaedia of Yoga Nidrā. An eco-yoga therapist with special expertise in yoga therapy for empowering women’s health, Uma is a mother of three, and has written four books on yoga, including the massive Yoni Shakti: A Woman’s Guide to Power and Freedom through Yoga and Tantra, and the co-authored The Celtic School of Yoga. She has trained over one thousand specialist teachers in Total Yoga Nidrā and Yoga for Women, and has shared more than a million Total Yoga Nidrā practices in eighteen different countries internationally, each one unique and responsive to the moment.
Uma's passion is to communicate a directly empowered connection to the living creative source of Prānā Shakti in her many forms, including Nidrā Shakti, the active ingredient of all Yoga Nidrā. She seeks to offer this connection by humble service to the spirit of Nidrā Shakti through creatively interwoven, uniquely responsive use of sound, voice, poetry, song, mantra, music and silence.
