Womb Yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli


Womb Yoga is all about reconnecting with the deep blood wisdom of cycles throughout the whole of a woman’s life, from pre-menarche to post-menopause. It is for all women, with or without wombs, menstruating or not menstruating. This way of yoga is a truly multidimensional approach which enables women to access the inner guidance of their source wisdom so that they may more readily reside in well-being and peace with their experiences as women. It utilizes every dimension of yoga practice to promote optimal health – from Total Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) and meditation, to dance-like flows of deliciously feminine asana (posture) flows, and supportive structural attention to the intimate relationship between posture and pelvic health. This is the first opportunity in the Americas for women of all ages and all levels of yoga experience to enjoy the teachings presented in Uma’s radical book, Yoni Shakti. These workshops are for women only of all ages and levels of yoga experience. Pregnant women and babes in arms are warmly welcome. Health care practitioners with an interest in women’s health are also welcome provided they have a living interest in and practice of yoga.
