I always feel so much better after the womb yoga class: centered, strong, rested and vital. I am so pleased I have given myself permission to be here! This class is a min-retreat, a haven in my busy week to nurture myself and honor my womb. Bristol student
Teacher mentoring and support with Uma
My experience is at your servce! With over forty years of yoga practice, twenty years experience of yoga teaching, and fifteen years work devoted to the training of yoga teachers and yoga therapists, I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to have supported the professional and personal development of many, many yoga teachers and also teacher-trainers and yoga therapists. I have professionally and personally benefitted from the support and guidance of superb senior teachers, who have helped me find my way, and I feel privileged now, to be able to give back some of the help and support I have received myself. So I am happy to draw from my wide experience to offer mentoring and guidance to teachers I have trained, and to those teachers in the wider community who feel they need a mentor or supervisor to whom they can bring questions and queries that are perhaps a little out of the ordinary.
Issues that often need addressing are to do with holding a safe space for vulnerable students or clients, extending generosity and kindness towards challenging students, specific health questions relating to many different dimensions of women's health including the psychic, and emotional as well as the physical. Often I find teachers and therapists have questions about the relationship between personal practice and teaching commitments.
My intention is to empower teachers to develop a nourishing balance in their lives and work so that we may together be of service to the students we teach. Often this support is provided over the phone, or by email, and also face to face. It depends where you are with your work and what your needs are right now.
I look forward to being of service to you on your yoga teaching journey.

London, Bristol and Stroud one to ones and yoga therapy
After twenty years of offering weekly classes for my local communities in London, and Stroud and Bristol, I now spend most of my time running retreats and training courses around the world. When I am in Stroud, London or Bristol, I offer one to one sessions of yoga for individuals seeking to develop a yoga practice to support them therapeutically, spiritually, or however best resonates with them. The issues that people bring to these sessions include menstrual challenges, infertility, fibroids, peri-menopausal disturbances of physical and emotional bodies, and issues arising after coming off the Pill. The sessions are also helpful for people dealing with stress or anxiety, especially when associated with the complex responses that accompany the use of assisted reproductive technologies.
Costs are: £90 per hour for London one-to-one sessions, £70 per hour for Stroud or Bristol sessions, €60 per hour for Ennistymon sessions . To organise a one to one with me please text me a good time to call you and we can have an initial talk about what would suit you best: (00) +44 (0)7595 322779.
I look forward to being of service to you on your yoga journey.
