E-RYT 500, BDY, YACEP
Senior Teacher @ The Celtic School of Yoga
HATHA TANTRA YOGA
"Since happiness heard your name, he ran through the streets trying to find you ... " Hafiz
Selina Gullery, B.A. (E-RYT 500, YACP) considered a “teachers’ teacher”, has been walking the path of yoga for over two decades. Her classes reflect her love for the mystery of life, her rootedness in the mythology and poetry of her homeland Ireland and the pure rapture of being alive, in tune with the music of our breath and the rhythms of life. She has been teaching since 1997, and carries certifications from numerous schools, in numerous traditions. She has her own School of Yoga offering workshops, classes and teacher trainings internationally.
She feels most connected when in nature and exploring the inextricable bond of the body and mind to landscapes and land. It is this sense of the natural world that she weaves poetically into her yoga classes and meditations, allowing her students to connect likewise, to rekindle the life force of love, as she holds the space for their inner beauty to express itself.

Our invisible geography (posture, breath, meditation)
“Close your eyes. Fall in love. Stay there.” Rumi
We are made of stardust - products of love, and hold the universe inside of us. Modern science reveals now, what the ancient yoga scriptures have been telling us for millennia. Join Selina on an inward journey through the invisible geography of your body through yoga asana, ancient yoga breathing techniques and meditation.
Embodying our inherent Beauty (Workshop for Women)
In a world, where women have taken on so many tasks, become so adept at doing everything, juggling job, household, children and workout routines and simultaneously being exposed to a notion of beauty that has us wanting our faces to be wrinkle-less and our body moulded, we often forget that true beauty lies within.
That we do not need to compare, succeed and take on left-brain notions of linearity and reason, but rather remember that our role here on the planet is to trust the female qualities of intuition and fluidity and ground ourselves in the knowledge that we can relax into just being.
Using the female archetypes, the first moulds from which we are formed, and special practices to balance our hormon centres, we will strengthen the belief in ourselves, discover parts of ourselves that might have been shrouded and experience and express an inner wholeness from where we can create balanced change in the world we touch.
Yoga asana, dance, group work, meditation, yoga nidra.
The Breath inside the Breath
“The breath arises out of stillness, expands, condenses, and returns to this ground of stillness. Oscillation is an intrinsic part of life and all movements.” (D. Farhi)
Prana (the life force), Ayama (freedom or pause) is often interpreted as Prana (the life force) and Yama (to control). Yet, when we study the ancient texts on breath, we understand that in fact breathing practices are not to control the breath, but rather to enter into relation with it and explore the pause between the breaths, where the ineffable resides. To enter into the “ground of stillness” time and time again. And it is here that we experience an inner alchemy that can lead to transformation and gentle release of patterns that no longer serve our highest selves. We place, so to speak the quiet loyalty of our breath on the altar of every new moment. Both body and mind enter a deep state of balance. From here we can access the wellspring of deep inner calm.
Poetry, movement, pranayama and meditation.
