"A true teacher does not teach you; she does not see you as inherently separate from her, or less than her.
She simply reflects back your own inner knowing, and reminds you of the vastness of your being.
She is a mirror, a signpost.
​And love is the space in which all of this is possible;
​love heals, and we learn best in a loving field, no threat of failure, no punishment." ~ Jeff Foster



Selina Gullery, considered a “teachers’ teacher” has been walking the path of yoga for more nearly 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.


Meet Selina during the festival:


Classes in English and French


Diving Deep (yoga, breath work, meditation)


"Late, by myself, in the boat of myself, 

no light and no land anywhere, cloud cover thick. 

I try to stay just above the surface, 

yet I’m already under and living within the ocean.”



Venture beneath the surface and delight in your own inner ocean!


Using techniques from modern and ancient teachings, we will learn to listen and be with our breath, observe how movement emanates from the breath and rejoice in the beauty of it all!


Yoga asana, breath work, meditation and music form a symphony to guide you through this class and leave you feeling you have reached a new shore of your being, discovered unknown depths, maybe even your own inner treasure chest at the bottom of the seas…



Meditation for the modern Yogi


“Don’t think the purpose of meditation is to go deep into consciousness, wrap a blanket around yourself, and say “how cozy” I’m going to curl up in here by myself; let the world burn.


Not at all. We go deep into meditation so that we can reach out further and further to the world outside.” - Eknath Easwaran


In this class, we will be exploring different meditation techniques - going from movement into stillness, to become more present within ourselves and thereby being able to reach out further and further into the world.


Open to all!




The world with in us - Workshop for Women


“I am the wind across the sea

I am a dewdrop let fall from the sun

I am a fire on every hill

I am a shield over every head

Who but I is the tree and the lightening that strikes it?

Who but I is the dark secret of the dolmen not yet hewn?

Who knows the currents of the moon?

Who knows the path of the sun?”

  • from The Song of Aimhirghin


Shakti is the energy manifest in all things. To deeply connect with our full potential, we need to make friends with ourselves, love and completely inhabit our bodies, love and understand our emotions as they arise and move through us, as Shakti energy - divine and unique to each of us.


In this workshop, especially designed for women, we be using the power of the circle, getting together as women, to understand ourselves and others better and then move through our lives with a deeper sense of calm and belonging.


Please bring an object that is special to you for our altar.
