Umā

S.A.T.Y.A. Synergistic Alignment of Tantra, Yoga & Ayurveda
Founder
Bali
360 degrees of African horizon, the Masai, the wild beasts, the Great Rift Valley, a forest-edged home, all fostered in Umā Inder, a spirited quest for ultimate purpose.

Mentored by a grandfather honored as a "Freedom Fighter Extraordinary" and cherished by a Hindu family of Indian descent who embraced life worth living, Umā acknowledges her early years in Kenya as a golden age of education in human-being.

In the aftermath of extreme personal loss and adversity, Umā began a search for "the meaning of it all" far from social networks, schools and rules. At age 20, this led her to an off-the-grid initiation and higher education in Kundalini-fueled mysticism in secluded river ravines in Bali, her home base for almost 30 years.

14 years of daily service to her master earned her "Gurottam", Guru's (Jupiter's) grace. She travelled further abroad to train under Indian Siddha and Ayurvedic physicians. On these travels, Umā attained context for her metaphysical experiences, primarily with teachers in Shaivite lineages. She became certified as an Ayurvedic Practitioner in America and as a Panchakarma Specialist in India.

In 2007, Umā co-founded KUSH, the Ayurvedic Center for Rejuvenation at Yoga Barn Bali where she directed Ayurvedic health programs and Laya Yoga Intensives for 8 years. Laya Intensives unify Kundalini Tantra kriyas with the medicinal principles of Ayurveda through dynamic physical and vocal sequences to breakdown blockages and liberate trapped energy.

Umā consolidated S.A.T.Y.A. (Synergistic Alignment of Tantra, Yoga & Ayurveda) that draws from her renowned Ayurvedic health practice, training with teachers in the Satyananda Saraswati lineage, early years of Hatha Yoga with her family and Kundalini Tantra with her former master.

Umā offers domestic & international S.A.T.Y.A. and Laya Yoga intensives and in-depth trainings. Umā also spearheads the wellness movement Going With Nature, and guides Ayurvedic health programs and consummate Panchakarma retreats.
