Teacher & Founder
Hi! I’m Uma,
I've been practicing Pranayama for almost twenty years - these powerful breath techniques come from the Yoga tradition of India, and are the foundation of my health & wellness. Regular breath practice has a multitude of physical benefits, as well as immediately decreasing anxiety and boosting energy levels. I created three progressive 7 and 5 day courses - From Level 1 Breathe: Discover to Level 2 Breathe: Deeper onto Level 3 Breathe: Dynamic from our kitchen table during lockdown, in response to the global pandemic. Over 5000 people around the world have completed these courses, and have reported reduced anxiety, increased immunity, deeper sleep and better digestion...all through simply breathing.Learn more about Uma

“I highly recommend this course and the wonderful Uma Spender if you’re looking to explore the power of Pranayama and all that it stirs up / brings to life / and how you can incorporate this practice into your day! I’m joining again this Wednesday to refine my practice before the advanced follow on course next week. Best way to start each day and what an beautiful offering during this time.”
“Thank you so much Uma Spender- and actually everyone who was there this week. I experienced tears of joy at the end of our practice yesterday.”I cherished the classes I made - I’m breathing better, grateful to be a part of this introduction of pranayama, it really helped deepen my focus in the daytime, and when I slept in and missed a class, I still felt held. Lets continue!”
“Highly recommend this course. I did this last week and found it incredibly grounding, empowering, and expanding. Uma is a phenomenal teacher with such a wealth of wisdom and a beautiful nurturing energy.The breath. Your vital resource. Your life force that will be with you always. Now more than ever, we are called to cultivate it.”
“The week together was so wonderful thank you. I adored yesterdays practice. The Pranayama practice for day 7 seemed like a big leap and felt incredible to release the mind chatter, release any fear and be in the moment and breathe! I too was reflecting on how far we have come in only a week and what fuel for the fire to continue - love it! What a gift to have.
“Thank you so much Uma for a wonderful week. Not only has it brought me back to my breath but it has also brought me back to my journal…to follow the breath through the open doors of my mind and spirit and soul and the curiosity to allow the breath to gently push open the doors…”.
“What a wonderful week of breathing!! Thank you Uma for your incredible knowledge and generous sharing. I am feeling so supported and held in these intimate teachings, more so than I have in some face-to-face learning that I have done in the past.”
