Uma is delighted to welcome you to this exciting opportunity to complete her Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Training course ONLINE! Over twelve years of running this course live, all over the world, have led to the opportunity to share online these authentic and effective teachings of Yoga Therapy to support and nurture women’s vitality at all stages of life.
Welcome to the circle of belonging that nurtures women’s health!
Here is a Special Message to You from Uma about the Live Online Yoni Shakti Well Woman Training.
JAI MÂ Dearest Yogini, Dear Soul!
Thank you so very much for your interest in this training! I am humbled to be of service to yoginis and to offer these tools for life long health and vitality for all women.
I am so glad to be able to offer this course online and have assembled a superb group of supporting tutors that I have been working with for many years. Together we will be at your service on this Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Teacher Training. Thank you for being with us! The world needs us all to awaken to the wisdom of cyclical rhythms and the power of Yoni Shakti!
With great respect and love, I send warm wishes for your well being,
Please READ ON for more details of the ONLINE TRAINING.
Over the twelve years that I have been sharing this course it has become very clear that a living experience of cyclical wisdom is vital if we are to be able to share this with others.
This is why it is essential, before you show up to attend the full online training, that you dive deep into your own personal experience of cyclical wisdom., And so, together with my dear sister Sivani Mata Francis, I have created a very special ONLINE Yoni Shakti Immersion Course which is a PRE-REQUISITE for attending the full training. This means you will need to do this immersion course FIRST before the main training.
This course is scheduled so that friends all over the world can join us from different times zones via Zoom, in one circle, but also with many opportunities to connect in smaller circles in Break Out Groups.
Please organise a place where you can lie down to practice yoga nidra and still be visible to Uma. This means set up your phone, tablet or computer so that the camera can see you even when you lie down to practice yoga nidra, side on, from the head to the pelvis.
Our connection will also take place via WhatsApp or other online chats – whichever platform suits you better. Details of these will be circulated after the first gathering.
This course is primarily for yoga teachers, but we extend a warm welcome to non-yoga teachers with a specialist interest in women’s health at all stages of life.
The Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy training (also known as Womb Yoga) is for yoga teachers and experienced yoga practitioners who sense that yoga could be of more practical use to all women in managing health, vital energy and well-being. It is also suitable for holistic health-care practitioners with a sound yoga background who are working in the field of women’s’ health and would like to integrate the healing benefits of yoga with their own therapeutic practice.
The 9 nights of this Live Online Course will include weeky meetings on Zoom in a variety of different learning environments:
Over the next 9 months we will meet on Zoom monthly:
This course is all about yoga for women’s’ health and vital energy throughout our lives. It shares techniques to feel, nurture and build the feminine energy of Shakti for the practical healing and benefit of women in all stages of life. This approach to yoga therapy for women’s’ well-being is founded upon the understanding that conscious respectful awareness of the menstrual cycle, and of cycles in women’s’ lives are crucial to female vitality, self-respect and spiritual empowerment.
The course presents therapeutic and enlivening yoga practices to support all experiences of femininity throughout a woman’s life. Topics covered included menstruation, pre-menstrual tension, fertility, subfertility, optimal fertility, assisted conception, feminine sexuality, perimenopausal mood swings, headaches, hot flushes and post-menopausal health concerns including osteoporosis. It addresses health issues related to the female pelvic organs, including postnatal recovery and prolapse, and other issues of concern to women in particular, such as menstrual pain, low self-esteem, depression, anaemia and eating disorders.
All these issues are addressed within the context of a yoga therapeutic understanding of feminine emotional life, lunar cycles and the play of the elements in the female body. The course encourages you to think and feel for yourself, and aims to provide you with practical tools from yoga therapy and tantric philosophy to help you to build programmes especially suited to the needs of women seeking full vitality and well-being. Conscious respectful awareness of menstrual and other life cycles form the foundation of this approach to yoga therapy for women’s’ health.
The course combines theory and practice from yoga and tantra to offer you fresh perspectives, new understandings and a deep appreciation of the healing power of yoga as therapy to optimise health and delight in feminine energy. Practices taught include: asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, deep relaxation and profound meditations including yoga nidra, sound meditations, moving meditations, visualisations and chants to the deep feminine.
The course content and philosophical background is set out in Uma Dinsmore-Tuli’s book Yoni Shakti: A woman’s guide to power and freedom through yoga and tantra. See www.yonishakti.co. As preparation for this training you are asked to read the introduction to Yoni Shakti – freely downloadable from HERE.

All the main teaching sessions on this course (not the sharing circles) will be recorded and you have access to re-view them for 28 days after the course completes. You will also receive some pre-recorded content over the nine months.
The recording is not an alternative to attending. This is because some of the training involves sensitive group sharing and the decision was made therefore to keep the training as a live experience, with recordings offered to those who are present for reflection purposes.
Your attendance at all live sessions is complusory to obtain certification.
Certification: On successfully completing all course requirements, you will receive a Yoga Nidra Network certificate of completion.
