    This half-day workshop will offer people of all yoga abilities the chance to have a taster of partner yoga and meet the founder of Unity Partner Yoga™. This workshop will begin with a Yoga warm-up followed by Unity Partner Yoga™ and then end the workshop with relaxation, which may include massage.

    Our next workshop will be taught by Sevanti, the Founder and Director of Unity. Sevanti has spent many years developing Unity Partner Yoga™ and the Unity Partner Yoga™ Teacher Training. She has nearly 20 years of experience teaching yoga.

    Unity Partner Yoga™ is a deep, restorative, playful and sacred practice of Yoga. Appropriate for all ranges of experience. 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 can learn so much by assisting our partner.

    “Partner Yoga is widely inclusive, stimulating serenity and smiles in a room full of strangers, connecting people in a unique, fun and deeply sacred way
    -Sevanti, Director and Founder of the Unity Centre in Brighton (since 1995), established Unity Partner Yoga in 2002

    Reiki Training Levels 1,2 & 3 - dates arranged on enquiry to best suit the student

    Reiki means ‘Universal Life Energy’. It has the highest and purest frequency of energy to recenter and balance us. It feeds our energy systems so that our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies work with efficiency and harmony. It originated in Tibet over 2500 years ago and was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s.

    We can channel Reiki for ourselves, for friends and family, to all creatures and plant life, to our food and our surroundings.

    Chanelling Reiki is a wonderful Meditation, and immediately takes us inwards to our most peaceful and quiet core.

    Validated by Embody

    Reiki means ‘Universal Life Energy’. It is the highest and purest vibration of energy – for our planet, and for our race. It feeds our energy systems so that our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies work with efficiency and harmony. It originated in Tibet over 2500 years ago and was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the late 1800′s.

    All Reiki courses are facilitated by Sevanti

    How does it work?

    The Reiki Practitioner becomes a Healing Channel, allowing Reiki to flow through their Crown Chakra to the heart and out through the hands. This energy is then offered to oneself or into a recipient.

    This way, the receiver is subconsciously in control, drawing the energy that is personally needed to enhance their natural healing ability. This means that all systems of the body are given a boost, each cell is cleansed and revitalized promoting internal balance. We may feel energised or relaxed, whatever is needed at the time. Reiki is almost like a 6th sense which we have ‘forgotten’ to use. Without it, we are not working to our potential – this wonderful energy attracts positive changes in our lives and acts as a peaceful meditational tool to help us relax and remain centered.

    Physical illness or emotional anxiety / mental stress / spiritual disconnection all occur when the natural flow of energy is impaired in some way. This occurs by every day circumstances which accumulate and cause stagnant energy within our energy centers or ‘Chakras.’ Our vital energy system will then be struggling to feed the other aspects of our being, causing fatigue and various levels of dis-ease. Reiki is a natural instinct. Being fed by this natural high vibration of energy causes us to function at our highest potential. In turn, we can individually raise the vibration, health, and therefore happiness of our planet. The change starts within.

    Once you have felt this source of energy from an experienced Channel there will be no doubt that something so beautiful and natural really does exist.

    How does a treatment feel?

    A treatment lasts for approximately one hour. The recipient relaxes on a treatment couch, fully clothed in a warm peaceful environment. The practitioner places their hands onto certain positions, mainly where the main chakras are located on both the front and back of the body.

    The recipient will feel a pleasant warmth and sometimes gentle tingling or pulsing. The breath will slow down and usually the receiver drifts off into a light sleep. There is a feeling of deep relaxation, lightness and a strong sense of support, protection and trust. All of the body’s systems will receive this wonderful energy and stronger will-power, clarity, sense of purpose and contentment will be made available. Reiki is not a belief-system, all that is required is an open mind and a will to accept the healing ability within.

    “If you have not Linked yourself To true emptiness, You will never understand The art of peace.”
    Morihhei Ueshiba
    Founder of Aikido

    Reiki Training

    One may prefer to study Reiki instead of / in addition to receiving treatments from a Reiki Practitioner. The Unity course is very traditional, as this lineage is very direct, with only 6 teachers between the student and Dr Usui-who rediscovered this form of healing. It is taught in the way it was intended, in 3 parts.

    Reiki 1 covers the history and background of Reiki, anatomy and physiology, the aura, chakras, healing on oneself and others. 2 day course, 4 attunements

    Reiki 2 explores these topics in more depth. It also teaches 3 of the 4 Reiki symbols and how to do distant healing. 1 day course, 2 attunements

    Reiki 3 (Masters) studies the above in great detail, and teaches the 4th Reiki symbol. Theattunement process is also taught and the sacred essence of Reiki is passed on. 2 day course, 4 attunements

    What is a Reiki Attunement?

    The attunement process is experienced by sitting eyes closed for approximately 10-15 minutes while the Reiki Master (an eastern term meaning Teacher) activates the crown, third eye, heart and palm chakras. This allows the universal life force energy to permanently flow through the receiver, as it used to so many years ago. When giving Reiki, we too receive the infinite energy. Reiki is safe and no transference of negative energy is possible.

    “A journey of self discovery… Should be essential for all Doctors; perhaps we would burn out less, and bring deeper healing to our patients!"
    Ruth, Reiki 1, 25/10/2007

    "I waited a long time for this experience, and its certainly been worth the wait. The set up for the two days was relaxing and laid back, and a nice space to explore and experience the feelings that flowed. A great investment, a great experience, and a great opportunity to share this with others”
    Theresa, Reiki 1, 25/10/2007
