Umā is the founding director of Satyaveda Academy — advanced, experiential education for facilitators in the Synergistic Alignment of Tantra Yoga & Ayurveda.
Born in Kenya of Indian descent, Umā has practiced Yoga and Ayurveda since childhood. At age 20, she was initiated into the secrets of Tantra and entered into seclusion to begin a 14 year apprenticeship with her Aghori Guru in his Bali jungle hermitage. Ceremony and Kundalini exaltation has been her life ever since.
Umā has been researching and educating in the field of traditional Laya Yoga and Kundalini Tantra Yoga for more than 30 years.
Umā is both smeared and sought out for her unconventional temperament. She appeals to dauntless aspirants and diligent practitioners worldwide for her capacity to accelerate, stabilise and contextualise the Kundalini awakening and reintegration.
In her Ayurvedic health practice, “Know Thyself, Heal Thyself”, she has guided rediscovery of true nature and wellbeing for thousands of people.
