United States

I am a humanitarian yogini serving those impacted by war and violence as well as those serving them. I had been traveling around the world for seven years when the violence of the Middle East landed on my doorstep, ultimately taking the life of one of my closest friends. That experience of pain, loss, and trauma brought a deeply rooted passion for sharing yoga practices with other women who experience sexual violence, war and genocide.
After serving between Greece and the Middle East for five years, I am now based in the US but continue to serve refugees through the Yoga Mandala Project. We are a grassroots project bringing he healing tools of yoga to refugees around the world. We also offer trauma-informed facilitation training for yoga teachers, care providers, social workers, etc. who are interested in providing a trauma-informed framework for refugees or other demographics impacted by trauma.
Moving back to the US during this social justice movement after more than a decade abroad has fueled me to create inclusive, accessible, and healing-centered spaces. I am a forever student and have learned so much about taking my practice off the mat from different courses over the past year. Whether in a training on The Myth of the Yoga Body, Accessible Yoga, Yoga for Eating Disorders, Supporting Survivors of Sexual Trauma through Yoga or trauma-informed facilitation, I continue open my heart to the experiences of others. I vow to honor both interconnectedness of us all as well as the unique lived experiences we each carry based on our social positionality and access to resources.
I believe in an engaged spirituality, in yoga as a way of living and being in relationship with ourselves and others, and my practice and my offerings inspire others to do the same.
If you are interested in bringing healing-centered modalities to refugees from your own home, please get in touch.

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
