Training Schedule: 9.30am-6pm daily
£850.00 including downloadable manuals and practical assessment. There is a 10% discount for Unity Yoga Teacher Training (IYN) students.
This Teacher Training is open to Teachers and Yogic Practitioners of 3+ years, although a certificate validated by the IYN is presented to existing Yoga Teachers only.
Therefore, whilst others are very welcome to book on to this course for enjoyment and experience, there will not be a certificate awarded enabling the Student to teach Unity Partner Yoga unless they are already a certified Teacher. There is one exception, which is where a valid general Yoga Teacher Training Diploma is achieved within 2 years following this 7 day course.
The 7 day course offers an extensive range of Partner Yoga Asanas, however the focus of this course resides deeper in Trust, Presence, Authenticity, Connection, Giving & Receiving, Nurturance, Acceptance and Surrender. Unity Partner Yoga is a sacred practice, and once the foundation of trust and support is established, then it is also a gateway to a much lighter form of yoga with plenty of fun and laughter too! It has the capacity to heal us on so many levels, and aids us in understanding more about who we are and how we relate.
As with Sevanti’s Yoga Teacher Training Diploma, this course is validated by the IYN, which permits the certified Student to teach Unity Partner Yoga within their classes, or as separate workshops.
Coursework & Assessment:
Partner Yoga Classes must be designed and taught as 2 hour sessions each week for 2 blocks of 6 weeks. These classes are then documented in detail and submitted toward the end of the course, with 2 written assignments. An assessed class of 30 minutes is then presented on the final day.
