“Inspirational, lovely retreat. Lots of laughter, thank you!” Alison

“Sevanti, I never imagined such a rich and deep experience. The retreat has inspired me in so many ways, thank you for bringing us all together.” Vanessa

A taste of what to expect

The retreat is led, as in previous years, by Sevanti, the founder of Unity. You can read more about Sevanti here. Sevanti has been leading retreats across the world since 1998 – more than half of them in our regular destination of Faralya, Turkey, where she has a close relationship with many local people. Each retreat is bespoke to the group’s and individuals’ needs.

Weekend Schedule

Unity yoga

Our yoga classes, led by Sevanti, are for all levels of yoga experience.

Unity hatha yoga is flowing and restorative, taking you on a journey through asanas, breathing techniques, and yoga nidra (deep relaxation). The class will begin with relaxation and meditation, with specific pranayama techniques to increase vitality, relax, and clear the mind. We gently warm up the body and flow through a series of backward and forward bending, twisting, and lateral movements, inversions, balances, and standing poses.

Yoga nidra – On Friday evening we will end the day, and bring in the retreat with this deep relaxation in the warmth and comfort of the retreat centre.

Open Floor Dance

Mindful movement is a deeply restorative, invigorating, and empowering practice. There are no set steps to learn or expectations: the movement journey is inspired by tuning into our inner resources such as grounding, centering, activating and settling, and spacious awareness, to name just a few. Read more about Open Floor conscious dance here.


Over the weekend Reiki, Reiki & Crystal healing, Holistic oil massage, Deep tissue, and a combination of all will be offered by Sevanti. There will be the opportunity to book in advance, or upon arrival if you’d like a treatment.

“ Every day came a new surprise, a new level of awareness, a new image of beauty and colour, a newer sense of well-being.”  Alex
