Uma Subramaniam, veteran yogi and teacher of yoga in its many modern forms but with deep roots in traditional and authentic yoga education, yogic practices and philosophies. “True knowledge from sincere teachers sets you free from tensions, poor health and helplessness” she says, having done the corporate beat as audit officer in erstwhile Wachovia Bank, USA, turning to yoga full time since 2008. Uma's early experiences with yoga started at the age of 10 and strictly adhered to Yogic principles that included practicing before sunrise on an empty stomach. She could not escape these classes; her father was the instructor, and she needed Yoga to battle certain health issues. An Arts graduate with a specialization in English Literature, she later went on to pursue an associate degree in International Business. She worked as an Internal Auditor for one of the top banks in the US and lived in the US for over a decade. When she moved back to India in 2008, she turned back to Yoga for personal practice and soon settled to teach. “I design my classes to work slowly into classical practices beginning with awareness of the spine, breath and the mind space. I like my students to experience transformation with even a simple 30 minute practice". She considers herself still a student, a teacher and therapist, a believer in yoga, ayurveda, natural, holistic and wholesome treatment of the human body & mind. With experiential knowledge of different schools of yoga, and having watched the yoga industry bloom around the world and particularly in Bangalore, Uma helps lead your way to the many options and offerings yoga has for the discerning seeker. At a1000yoga Academy since 2011, she has coordinated all major program activities within the organization under the direct guidance of Founder and Principal Teacher – has taught, evaluated over 50 Yoga Teacher Certification Courses in a period of 8 years with over 1000 graduates at the academy. Uma has represented the Yoga Academy to propagate yoga and ayurveda in Austria, Germany and Spain through several training programs over the past 5 years. She continues on this path of teaching yoga, the science and its principles, doing further research and directing her energies to bring oneness among all through yoga. She has recently completed a Master’s Degree in Sanskrit, to bring the disciplines of Yoga and Ayurveda (for mental and physical well-being) together through the original and authentic medium of Sanskrit.
