Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Teacher Training

Hi, I’m Ella! I’m a Yoga teacher living in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.

I started practicing yoga when I was fourteen, under the promise that Yoga would give me abs, a great bum and maybe some inner peace. What I didn’t know is it would begin a love affair that would take over my life. After practicing for several years I began studying Buddhism and Hinduism at University, learning about the roots of Yoga philosophy and eventually writing my dissertation on the transition of yoga into the West. I also began my teacher training, learning to communicate my love of the practice to more and more people as I went.

I am still a student learning so much more about Yoga over the years, specialising in women’s health and Womb Yoga. I believe the second we believe we know everything yoga has to offer, that is the moment that we need to learn something new and I am always searching for new and better ways to teach and evolve.‹

Mostly though, I love sharing my knowledge with my students. I truly believe that everyone can benefit from the practise, but so many of us don’t know where to begin. We complicate what should be simple (believe me I know!) and forget that yoga is simply being present in the body.‹

It’s my hope that this website can be used as a resource for the yogi who wants to know more as well as the beginner who wants to learn, whether that be with me in a class, online or on my blogs.

Though I still believe that yoga can give you abs and a great bum, I now know that it offers so much more and I cannot wait to share it all with you!

Contribute to the Yoga Nidra Network

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this services freely.

Thank You, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli, Co-Founders, Yoga Nidra Network
