Teacher

Selina Gullery

Selina travels the world teaching retreats, workshops and trainings. With over 20 years of yoga practice and training, she is considered a teachers' teacher. It is her passion and calling to share her knowledge, touch hearts and encourage her students to life life with rapture, making each moment one of deeper experience. Initiated into Tantra in 2007 by Swami Samarpan from India, she followed the traditional yoga path for many years, completing over 1000 hours of training in the Bihar School of Yoga lineage. Her path has led her to study with western teachers, notably Shiva Rea and her School of living Yoga. Selina is a trainer at affiliate Prana Vinyasa Teacher Trainings, Barbra Noh (Anusara immersions I-III), Sally Kempton (Meditation), Michael Shabort (Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Patthabi Jois), Biff Mitthoefer (Yin Yoga) and many more. Her passion for somatics, the brain, philosophy and myth have led her to explore Body Mind Centering, Zen Thai Shiatsu, Reiki, and the connection between Eastern Philosophy and the tales of her homeland, Ireland. She is a Senior Teacher with the Celtic School of Yoga.

Teacher

Jack Harrison

I first encountered yoga in the 1970s and 1980s in San Francisco at a yoga school in Haight-Ashbury where I lived and played music. Five years later I was in Galway on the West coast of Ireland and practising with the Irish Wheel of Yoga. I studied many styles including Iyengar and Satyananda, until, in about 2000, I was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga and did a teacher training at Yoga Thailand and later in Dublin and Clare Island, Co Mayo, the island of my mother’s family. This was followed by many more trainings in Anusara Yoga in San Francisco, Paris and Paros in Greece. I began teaching in 2005. I have been playing music and singing since I was child. I have a Masters degree in Irish Folklore and Archaeology and have worked for many years as a consultant and lecturer in Heritage Interpretation. Only recently have I realised that these three interests—yoga, music, and folklore/mythology/ archaeology—had anything to do with each other. And they have now manifested as the Celtic School of Yoga which ties together the yoga traditions of India with those of the Celtic world. I have travelled widely giving workshops, intensives and teacher trainings and I now teach with a strong influence from the Celtic tradition. These practices explore how it is to ally movement of the body with breath, focus, mythology, poetry, music and the natural world—and the astonishing fact of being alive.
