In this courageous and radical book, renowned yoga therapist and mother-of-three Uma Dinsmore-Tuli explores the sexual politics of yoga from the perspective that women’s spiritual transformation is the most potent revolutionary force. It includes:
Intimate and scholarly, irreverent and inspiring, Yoni Shakti brings womb yoga, tantra and feminism together in an astonishingly powerful combination. It is an invaluable guide for all women / womb owners and anyone who shares yoga practices with them.
The 2020 revised and updated edition of Yoni Shakti includes a lengthy new preface and previously censored material. It includes recently uncovered information about abusive yoga teachers and organisations, and an updated decolonising bibliography. The chapter on Yoga Nidrā and the ‘Note to Men, Transgender and Non-binary readers’ have been substantially edited to reflect developments since first publication.

‘Yoni Shakti and indeed all of what feels trite to describe as Uma’s ‘work,’ is a deep contribution to womanhood. Fundamental, liberating and returning, it’s the wisdom and embodiment we wish we’d been given as little girls.’
Jessica Huie, MBE, Author of ‘PURPOSE, Find your truth and embrace your calling.’
