Uma Dinsmore Tuli was first introduced to yoga at the age of four by her mother and began meditating at nine on a pilgrimage with her maternal grandmother. Yoga and meditation have been part of her daily life ever since. After completing the Yoga Biomedical Trust Diploma in Yoga Therapy in 1999, Uma has continued to find the fully integrated approach of yoga therapy to be the most practical route to the healing power of yoga. She further trained in Structural Yoga Therapy and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy with Mukunda Stiles, and works as a yoga therapist with special expertise in women’s health. Uma has a PhD in Communications and is a recognised teacher of the British Wheel of Yoga.

He studied yoga with Mary Stewart and Sophy Hoare and after a brief meeting with Vanda Scaravelli, he now studies with Diane Long in Florence and Rome whilst continuously developing his own practice and teachings.
With a keen feeling and study for the nature of Fascia he met and studied with Thomas Myers in Structural Integration and the ‘Anatomy Trains’ theory in 1998 and has co taught with him in the USA and UK which has led Gary to deepen his explorations in taking the understandings of complete functional integration into many practices. Gary has been teaching Anatomy and Movement for over 14 years to Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, and Massage schools in the UK and Europe along with Athletes and Personal Trainers. He has studied dissection at the Institute of Anatomy in Vienna and now runs The Yoga & Anatomy training course all over the UK ,Ireland and Scotland. He is also principal lecturer in the “Science of Movement and Anatomy” on the Dance Sciences Degree course at Middlesex University.
Christopher Gladwell has been practising and teaching yoga for over thirty years and is passionate about the practice and where it takes us to within ourselves. His own journey has been extensive practice and study including Yoga Nidra study with the Satyananda School of Yoga (12 years) and the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of Krishnamacharya and Sri K Pattabhi Jois (12 years) as well as other systems such as Iyengar yoga, Oki yoga, Vini yoga and Chi Kung.
Christopher has also explored traditional and new Tantra, and for the last nine years I has been involved in explorations of the Vajrayana teachings of Tibet as well as Shamanic traditions mostly rooted in Native American teachings. He has studied physical therapies, primarily Shiatsu, Thai Massage, Intuitive Massage and Structural Integration, all of which informs the hands-on facilitation work in his yoga teaching.
