There is a harvest to be made
When the moon is bright; 
Shining on the end of summer…

There are dreams to be sung tonight,

Now still… Even every raspberry that I pick
from the bushes behind the back door,
Ripening beneath this full moon, 
Wakes my taste buds to recall
The gathering in, the gathering round.

… For there is still a harvest to be made
When the moon is bright; 
Shining on the end of summer.

New Moon Blessings to all Nidristas!


Our Cotswold hedgerows are abundant with berries: elder trees bent over with the fattest elderberries I have ever seen, and the sloes and blackberries are ripening well.  We are celebrating a bumper harvest here in the Stroud, and finding comfort and joy in the simple tasks of preserving the berries as syrup and cooking up blackberry and apple crumbles. As so much about the world news reveals chaos, violence and disconnection, it is nourishing to be connected into the cycles of our land, and to feel the generosity with which the earth gives to us!

Just as in the hedgerows, so in our work together… the combined fruits of over fifty years of sharing yoga nidra is currently being harvested and prepared in our writings! Currently Nirlipta and I are in the copy editing and design stage of work on Yoga Nidra Made Easy with the lovely team at Hay House, and I am patiently engaged in the long process of final edits on the 770 page Nidra Shakti illustrated Encyclopaedia of Yoga Nidra, whose extraordinary growth process is inching ever closer to completion.   

We are also proud to be able to share TOTAL YOGA NIDRA FOR THE PEOPLES!  We have harvested all the best fruits from our years of sharing yoga nidra to create a remarkable and effective resource to support you through everyday! There are nidras to support digestion and sleep, yoga nidras to nourish you during dips in energy and even a special yoga nidra to do when you feel too stressed to do anything! This is a wonderful audio and video resource for all people, and we are proud to be able to share this online audio and video course with you now - it's available here 


Another harvest!  We have been celebrating the completion of our first entirely online 'year and a day' training for Total Yoga Nidra teachers and facilitators (that began in August 2020). We honour the marvellous cohort of graduates from around the world who are all now sharing yoga nidra from the heart, with confidence and creativity to their communities. It has been a joyful time of listening and experiencing all the wonderful yoga nidras created during the course - each one totally unique. 

If you have been thinking about training in yoga nidra, please know that this special course provides the highest level of student support and empowerment for you to find your own nidra voice, and the next one starts at the end of November. You are so welcome to join us, and become empowered to share yoga nidra in the most responsive, co-creative and community-centred way. This training is also available live in person in France (en français!) with Philippe Beer-Gabel in the Dordogne, with live online afternoon sessions from Uma.

Please remember that a prerequisite for the course is our online Total Yoga Nidra Immersion course - and we recommend taking the time to connect with that in advance of beginning the full teacher and facilitator training. 


So much now depends upon our capacity to connect to our dreams and visions for the future - and so much of our dream life depends upon good sleep and clear recall! We are delighted to offer again the chance to reconnect to your sleep and dreams through practices of yoga nidra.

This special weekend sleep retreat shares yoga nidra designed to support your deep rest and rich dreams. The Total Yoga Nidra Dream and Creativity Sleep Retreat is a restful way to dream into the autumn, listening in your bed to yoga nidra from Nirlipta Tuli and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. It's a gentle way to reconnect, and you can listen in your pyjamas, tucked up in your bed - to the morning and evening sessions. Keep your dream notebook handy! Registration is now open for this very nurturing online retreat.

Sleep well supported by yoga nidra is good sleep! Nirlipta Tuli's online sleep course offers an extraordinary wealth of practices, wisdom and insight to support everyone's sleep cycles and rest processes. If you or anyone in your family needs a little help to settle into (and remain nourished by) good sleep, then we invite you to connect with this magnificent online resource.


Total Yoga Nidra is at the heart of our new online menopause retreat weekend. With twice-daily yoga nidra practices specially co-created to nurture menopause, this weekend shares practices from yoga and ayurveda to encourage deep regeneration, natural rhythmicity and a time for profound rest. The ONLINE retreat weekend includes ayurvedic recipes, deep self nurture, self massage, gentle movement, and nourishing resources to support the powerful life transition that is menopause. 

Everyone in perimenopause and menopause is welcome to join Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Ayurvedic therapist and yoga nidra teacher Virginia Compton, to receive the balm of yoga nidra, ayurveda and community circle connection on this online retreat.  

OPEN CIRCLES - a thriving monthly community gathering for nidristas! 

Month after month, our open circles provide a unique gathering space for the discussion of the ethical implications of sharing yoga nidra. Each circle begins with a live yoga nidra practice shared by Nirlipta Tuli and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, and opens into a lively question and answer session with our Uma and Nirlipta joined online by our resident Ethicist and Yoga Nidra teacher training tutor, Yoli Maya Yeh.

These circles are open to all yoga nidra teachers - so bring a friend! Attendance is free of charge to all students currently enrolled in our training programme. Graduates of our courses pay a small fee to secure their place, and there is a booking link here for teachers from all other traditions who will also receive a warm welcome. Next open circle is coming up soon on 11th September, so book your spot now. We offer the open circles at different times an on a variety of different days to enable us to welcome people from different time zones - so if the upcoming circle doesn't suit you perhaps check out the one in October.


Yoga Nidra is the precious treasure at the sacred centre of all Uma's work for women's health. Often community co-created, and always deeply nurturing and nourishing, Total Yoga Nidra is the key active ingredient of Yoni Shakti Yoga for women's well being. You're invited to join us for our regular monthly evening sessions at the Full Moon and the New Moon, where we welcome women into a deeply restful space to reconnect to rhythmicity and vitality. These sessions always begin with a juicy yoga nidra to restore and revive! 

You are also invited to explore the rich treasures of the interconnected energies of creativity and sexuality on the online retreat with luscious yoga nidra practices to nourish your vitality. Sign up HERE for the one day retreat with Uma Dinsmore Tuli and Sivani Mata.

If you'd like to learn how to support pregnancy and birth through therapeutic yoga and yoga nidra, then please sign up soon to our upcoming Pregnancy Yoga teacher training with Uma and LIsa White, and midwives Tara and Oli. Both courses feature twice daily yoga nidra practices to enhance well-being and reconnection. 

WELCOMING 2022 with Yoga Nidra! 

We have always enjoyed sharing yoga nidra to support the winter journey into the New Year - in previous years we've offered New Year retreats at our home in Stroud - but this year we've decided to open the retreat up to make it available live online. It may seem a little early to be thinking about the new year - but these places book up fast, so we encourage you to save the date and register your interest now by email for this retreat to support your transition into 2022. There will be multiple yoga nidra practices with Nirlipta Tuli and Uma Dinsmore Tuli and time for reflection, writing, intention setting and more. 

In the service of Nidra Shakti 
and with great respect and love and warm wishes for your well being
