“Leap, and the net will appear” – Zen proverb

It was these words, leap, and the net will appear, amongst years of practice, which led to me becoming a yoga teacher, a writer, and a restorative yoga and yoga nidra advocate. I became a qualified yoga teacher in 2014, and since then have spent time undertaking intensive study with a number of skilled and inspirational teachers, either face to face or through literature. In that time I discovered more about myself than I would have ever thought possible and I now am very grateful to be able to teach classes, workshops and retreats to groups and work one-to-one with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, low self esteem, menstrual difficulties and more.

I have specialised my training in restorative yoga, yoga nidra and yoga for women’s wellbeing (although I love to practice all forms of yoga) and I am fascinated by the body’s capacity to heal itself, and the mind’s potential for expansion. I contribute to the online resource Yoga Nidra Network, write my own blogs ( and have contributed the Yoga London blog, writing on practical philosophy. In 2020 my first book, Rest Is Radical, will be published by Aeon.Books

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
