UMA IS A MIND-BODY COACH BASED IN AUSTIN, TEXAS.

Fascinated by the mysteries of human consciousness early on, Uma was a biology major and neuroscience researcher at Stanford University.

As a junior, she discovered a passion for photography.  After graduation, Uma became an award-winning photojournalist whose work was published in The New York Times and whose assignments took her to remote villages in Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka and Haiti.

In 2010 she launched a wedding photography business and became known for capturing wedding celebrations in her unique photojournalistic style.

With the onset of chronic symptoms like fatigue, Uma turned towards the healing path. She worked with nearly every kind of healing modality: yoga, acupuncture, reiki, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, nutrition, endocrinology, immunology, hypnotherapy and more.

However, it wasn’t until Uma began studying the work of Peter Levine and worked with mind-body coach Abigail Steidley that she understood the underlying cause of her symptoms – nervous system disregulation caused by trauma. In 2016 she trained to become a mind-body coach with Abigail Steidley. Uma has also studied with nervous system specialist Irene Lyon and the visionary Sue Morter.

Uma has traveled to six continents, but her favorite journey is the journey within. At age 16 she became a meditator and a student of Buddhism. This is when she found her true calling: as a traveler on the spiritual path. These days Uma serves as a prayer chaplain at Unity church.
