“We tried giving and receiving 3 types of massage under Sevanti’s excellent teaching. This was my first time learning holistic massage and I found it both rewarding and enjoyable. I learned how to massage with confidence and enjoyed the three types of massage as a receiver…

From the moment I stepped into the studio, I knew I was in the presence of a brilliant teacher. Sevanti’s teaching style was engaging, nurturing, and filled with compassion.” Patrick, 2023

Sevanti has developed the Holistic Massage Diploma (MTI) from many years of experience and research.

In addition to to running this diploma, she is also the Founder and Director of Unity. Immediately after completing her BA (Hons) Degree in Dance Theatre at the Laban Centre, London, Sevanti certified as an Integral Yoga Teacher and a massage practitioner.

In 1998 Sevanti established her practice of Yoga (and massage & healing), naming it ‘Unity’. Since then Unity has expanded to become a Training School, where she has lovingly created her own Yoga Teacher Training Diploma (IYN) and Holistic Massage (MTI) Diploma since 2000/02. She has also established courses in Unity Partner Yoga™ Teacher Training (IYN) and Reiki (Embody).

Formerly based at a studio in Brighton, in 2019, Sevanti undertook an extensive and painstaking restoration of a heritage Turkish bathhouse in Friar’s Walk, Lewes. This was opened in September 2019 as The Unity Centre; a landmark spa and studio offering floatation therapy, an infra red sauna, massage therapies, classes and workshops in yoga, pilates and much more.
