Home » Our Faculty » Uma

demoUma’s early experiences with yoga strictly adhered to Yogic principles that included practicing before sunrise on an empty stomach. She could not escape these classes; her father was the instructor, and she needed Yoga to battle certain health issues. She soon took a liking to Karate and eventually ended up learning and teaching Karate for 6 years in Chennai. An Arts graduate with a specialization in English Literature, she later went on to pursue an associate degree in International Business in the US where she made a home away from home. She worked there as an Internal Auditor for one of the top banks in the US for about 5 years.
When she moved back to India after 15 years, she turned to Yoga to help resolve certain health issues after her second pregnancy. Thanks to her Yoga practice, her migraines are now non-existent, cholesterol levels are in check and the unhealthy weight gain has been reduced gradually and naturally.
Uma’s yoga qualifications are extensive. She is an M.Sc in Yogic Sciences, E-RYT200, RYT500, RCYT (Children’s Yoga) and RPYT(Prenatal Yoga). “I design my classes to work slowly into classical practices with spine orientation, awareness, correction and strengthening. I like to end my classes bringing the awareness of practitioners to one simple question “how did you feel before practice and how do you feel after practice”.

Along with her teaching/TTC faculty responsibilities, Uma is a counsellor for the Teacher Training Courses at a1000yoga. She takes passionate interest in the wholesome education of her children. For Uma, Yoga means “Transformation. Looking back I can say it is transformation for the better.  At the moment, it is still a transformation into the next moment.”

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
