What is Unity Yoga Teacher Training?
The Unity Yoga Teacher Training offers a detailed syllabus, covering the foundations of Yoga in-depth. Established and taught by Sevanti, Founder & Director of The Unity Centre.

Additional respected and renowned teachers share their passion and experience in specific subjects, bringing a diverse range of subjects and approaches to the heart of Yoga. The core of meditation and authentic practice runs through all facilitators to deliver a dynamic and fresh framework for each Student to blossom as an individual and as a teacher.

What is Unity Yoga?
Unity Yoga is a deep and meditative flow through seated meditation, asana, pranayama and savasana. It is an enquiry into organic, natural movement; moving inwards through focussed awareness to then open outwards into a spectrum of authentic yogic postures with sensitivity and strength. The heart of this practice is about ‘being with oneself’, letting go and enjoying the process of unfolding rather than judging or forcing. We establish our practice through the recognition of our miraculous, intelligent body and mind, therefore moving naturally and uniquely to our personal form and personality.

Through this sensitive authenticity we are able to explore a diverse spectrum of asanas with various approaches and dynamics. Meditation, breath, letting go, depth, humility, these are the entry points to a long-term nourishing and inspiring practice. Our style changes as we change, but this diploma is interested in the underlying thread of Yoga, the ability, primarily to connect with our ultimate truth and live our potential of love and joy. The dynamics and content may vary between Unity Yoga Teachers, but the central focus is on the fluidity of natural and authentic movement, relationship with breath and the awareness of our fundamental state of being.

A Unity class usually starts with seated meditation, followed by mantra and pranayama. The body is warmed up before flowing through restorative/flowing/dynamic asanas, weaving through an awakening and cleansing journey through the chakras. The approach is sensitive, attentive and sacred. The body-mind is respected as a whole system, honouring the felt sense of emotions, thoughts and beliefs stored within the physical body. With courage, surrender and lightness we tune in to the intelligence of our system, and the simplicity of letting go of the tension held within the body and mind.

Care is taken to be true to our unique body, enjoying a wide range of possibilities and variations to maintain safe and effective alignment. Moving and still postures are carefully chosen to take each practitioner on a deep but fun journey of awareness. The purpose of a Unity Yoga session is to allow each person time to pause, to listen to the body, mind and emotions and to un-do any accumulated tension. We can then replace tension with an open heart, spaciousness, positivity and trust.

Yoga brings awareness to all parts of ourselves, inspiring balance and clarity and ultimately a greater connection with our higher self, and all that surrounds us. Swami Satchidananda (Founder of Integral Yoga) said "(Yoga) is a flexible combination of specific methods designed to develop every aspect of the individual; physical, emotional, intellectual & spiritual. It is a scientific system which integrates the various branches of Yoga in order to bring about a complete & harmonious development of the individual".

” It has been an amazing journey, which has had a profound effect on me and my life, I am so glad I found you and your courseSophie McCallum

"Unity Yoga has a special place in my heart. I started this course hoping to learn more about how to teach yoga and I left feeling inspired and changed not just as a teacher but in all aspects of my life. Unity Yoga has nurtured my body, my mind and my soul. This 9 months teacher training course feels more like the beginning of a new direction in my life and I can't wait to find out where it will take me. What I love most about this course is how it allows you to let you find out about the teacher you want to be as opposed to following someone else's path that's already laid out for you. It requires you to dig deep and it was more challenging than I could have imagined, but then all things worth doing are. So if you want a true yoga practice I can't recommend this course more. Sevanti is an incredible teacher." Hilde
