1. Poem: Waking Dream at Lughnasa Purnima
Awakening here
There is no sense of where this body is.
No shell; nor edge, no borders
Hold this spirit
In one place.There is no cage
To hold this heart
Within the bounds of bones.She’s free to soar. She is blue sky:
Wide, and high, and deep.
Singing as she flies; She soars:
She kisses earth. She kisses you.She whispers ‘May this full moon be so bright
that tides of Lughnasa light overflow
and fill you up
from the inside out.
May you be soaked all through,
full, bright and bathed in moonwhite light.
Fullness inside, Fullness outside,
Fullness in the sky, and fullness at your source.
These verses are selections from the library of poems on Uma’s Patreon page.

2. Greeting from Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD, co-founder of the Yoga Nidra Network
Full Moon Blessings of Joy and Gladness dear Yoni Shakti Yogini,
Keeper of the wisdoms and respecter of the cycles of LifeI give thanks to you for your presence here on this good earth at this time of great change and upheaval. I welcome every small effort each one of us makes to honour the rhythms of life in our land, our bodies and our hearts. Every tiny act of human rest and respect for Mother Earth is part of the web that holds us together, even when it feels like everything is falling apart. Our bodies are our Motherland, and the land of our mother’s lineage is a powerful place for us to rest – so I am delighted to be setting out on a Lughnasa full moon tide to sail to Ireland, where warm circles of belonging are ready to welcome you in Dublin and Co Clare, as well as a week-long retreat in the magical Burren.


Nestled at the heart of Yoni Shakti is a fierce commitment to the potent energies of pregnancy, birth and postnatal recovery. We can support these rites of passage with simple and effective yoga therapeutic techniques – and you can learn to share these yoga therapy techniques in our wonderful training course.  I am so proud that the very first yoga therapy course I ever created was for yoga therapy for pregnancy and birth, and I am overjoyed to have TOTALLY REVISED and RE-PRESENTED this course in an online weekly format with a great team of inspirational and experienced midwives, Tara Devi Windmill-Robson and Oli Silverwood Cope, together with my dear colleagues Lisa White and Ling Mann.  We start on 18 September – save your place here.


An invitation for all our European friends to gather in beautiful Stockholm for a full Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Teacher Training with our friends at YogaFolks. (This course will be delivered 100% in English.)  Bring a friend, share the journey and maybe treat yourself to the restful Total Yoga Nidra Immersion course too!

And for those who prefer to take this training from the comfort of your own home, we have a specially witchy online offering starting on Hallowe’en and running through the winter solstice, twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. So this means you can complete the entire training in eight weeks of an intensive deep dive during the darkening part of the year  – save your spot here.

Please remember that the prerequisite for this course is the Yoni Shakti Immersion course which you can complete live in Cheltenham with Sivani Mata and Cecilia Allon in September or online at your own pace.


Please lovely ones, if you would like a copy of the recently re-printed second edition of Yoni Shakti, do be sure to purchase from our website and claim your free Yoni Shakti Practice video! 


Looking ahead to February 2024, I’m overjoyed to be returning to Kerala, the home of Ayurveda, at the invitation of the lovely peeps at Yoga United, my favourite Anglo-Indian fair trade yoga folk!
You can join me in Cherai Beach for nine nights of restful being, yoga nidra and yoga therapy, with the option to complete certification in the Total Yoga Nidra Immersion course with a Creativity focus – its all about rest, dreams and your creative cycles, so bring your notebooks and come ready to rest by the Arabian Sea and the gorgeous backwaters. Limited spots are available, so be sure to save yours now.


As with all my offerings, I dedicate this work to the mother of the universe, and seek to honour the divine energy of shakti in all of life!  Each time we consciously honour the cycles of life within us, we contribute another thread in the re-weaving of a web that holds us all in right relationship to the earth

In the service of Yoni Shakti 

and with great respect and love and warm wishes for your well being
