Unity Partner Yoga™ Teacher Training is recognised by the IYN as a Post Qualifying course. This 7-day course is open to existing yoga teachers (or those soon to train/certify). Created in 2012 and taught by Sevanti, this is the only IYN recognised Partner Yoga course.
This course offers an extensive range of partner yoga asanas for duos, trios and groups. The focus of this course resides in qualities of trust, presence, authenticity, connection, giving & receiving, nurturance, acceptance and surrender. Unity Partner Yoga™ is a sacred practice, of release and rejuvenation, it can also be a gateway to a much lighter form of yoga with plenty of fun and laughter too!
Unity Partner Yoga™ is the poetic movement of two or more people dancing through yoga asana together.
It is appropriate for all ranges of experience, and all relationships from friends to partners, and children to pregnant women. Unity Partner Yoga™ is a deep, restorative, playful and sacred practice of Yoga. It can awaken an inner oasis of deep peace, where we relate with another, and with our self, through truth, trust and tenderness.
Through joint- back/forward bends, spirals, inversions and balances, we can gain more strength, balance, endurance, elasticity and fluidity. By allowing another person to guide us deeper into our individual possibilities, we often reach new realms of openness and softness. We share the give and take of being active or passive in a pose, and understand more about alignment and safety. We can learn so much by assisting our partner, often find ourselves in a range and depth of asanas we do not easily experience alone. We can also become more conscious of caring communication. All of these aspects help with how we relate, by being authentic and responsive to our own needs, whilst recognising and allowing space for the requirements of another.
Practicing with a partner raises the necessity of clear and honest communication and feedback. Not only must one be responsible for oneself, but equally, we can expand our awareness and sensitivity to our partners needs too.
