All styles and levels of experience are welcome to join us for this excellent 200hr advanced-teaching immersion, delivered by highly respected local and global yoga teachers. Created by Sevanti, the Founder and Director of Unity, Brighton, 28 excellent tutors have been invited to teach on this unique course to share their specific passion and insights through practice and philosophy.

Aiming to remain open to all disciplines, a spectrum of yogic approaches are welcomed. The focus is on the community aspect of yoga, how yoga can be accessible to all. Practical teaching methods are given in various physiological/emotional/psychological/spiritual viewpoints. Ultimately, the aim of the course is to enable each student to connect with their own relationship to yoga and to themselves as teachers. The core enquiry is therefore based on the nature and heart of yoga, what it means to each of us in this present time and how we are able to support ourselves and each of our own students as specifically and successfully as possible.

The structure
9.30am-12.30pm: Each morning gives an opportunity for the small group (maximum of 12 students) to connect through meditation and sharing. These sessions are led by Sevanti of Unity and Kathryn Varley of Horsham Yoga, both IYN Yoga Elders, who will also lead a practical class and various other seated/movement meditations. The mornings allow students to voice any experiences or challenges that they would like to share. The sense of group support and tutor mentoring can be minimal or absent for many teachers, therefore this aspect of the course is designed to meet the needs of the individual, on both a personal and a professional level. It is a wonderful opportunity to reflect, be heard, offer insights and receive response to challenges. The mornings will also serve as an extra theory/practical session on occasion, delivered by an experienced visiting tutor.

1.30pm-6.30pm: The afternoons offer a diverse selection of highly reputable teachers, who will share work in various disciplines and applications of Yoga.
The sessions will be predominantly practical, with some supportive philosophy. There is no coursework/ homework, the aim of the course is to provide an ongoing closed group with an essence of connection, friendship and support, whilst also experiencing a vast array of specialist areas in the world of yoga. It is also designed to be fun!
The course is designed to challenge and inspire. All lessons carry the ability to inspire each students’ own personal teaching journey. Rather than offering a doctrine of certain ways of teaching, this spectrum of approaches to the many facets of yoga is intended to equip students to dive deeper into their awareness through self-study. New skills, insights and investigation will be presented by carefully chosen, authentic and passionate teachers.

Inspiration
The course has been inspired and created by Sevanti, the Founder and Director of Unity, Brighton. Sevanti has been teaching the Unity Yoga Teacher Training (IYN) Diploma since 2002, as well as a Unity Partner Yoga™ Teacher Training Diploma (IYN) since 2012, and a Holistic Massage Diploma (MTI) since 2002. The courses are taught from the Unity Studio, Brighton. Sevanti has been running yoga retreats since 1998, with annual family yoga holidays in Turkey since 2000.

Her inspiration to set up this Postgraduate Diploma arose from numerous conversations over the years with graduated students from various yogic disciplines. It seemed apparent that whilst certified teachers can do their own developing research through self-practice, attending workshops and classes is more stimulating to study with an ongoing peer group.

Course Focus
A closed group allows each student to feel a significant sense of support and connection, with the potential to harness warm friendship and a sense of a yogic family. This can therefore allow a deeper personal journey, where the group is established in trust and nurturance. Then, the course becomes so much more than an educational journey. Whilst equipping each student with excellent advanced teaching skills, it is also possible that the 15 month course can be a journey of deep self discovery, awareness and development.

Yoga is such a diverse science, yet this syllabus provides certain depth with particular subjects. Aiming to remain open to all disciplines, a spectrum of yogic approaches is welcomed. The focus is on the community aspect of yoga, ie how yoga can be accessable to all. Practical teaching methods are given in various
physiological/emotional/psychological/spiritual viewpoints. Ultimately, the aim of the course is to enable each student to connect with their own relationship to yoga and to themselves as teachers. The core enquiry is therefore based on the nature and heart of yoga, what it means to each of us in this present time and how we are able to support ourselves and each of our own students as specifically and successfully as possible.
