Uma gained her Yoga Biomedical Trust Diploma in Yoga Therapy in 1999, and subsequently trained in Structural Yoga Therapy and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy, and worked as a yoga therapist with special expertise in women's health. She is a recognised teacher of the British Wheel of Yoga, and is an International Association of Yoga Therapists' Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT). Read Uma’s full biography here
