"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 (BA) is a qualified linguist, yoga teacher, intuitive cook and student of life.
She walks the path of yoga to connect with her body and through it with the rhythms of nature and the divine that resides in all things. Yoga for her is a holistic approach to leading a conscious and responsible life, in tune with ourselves, with each other, our communities, and the world around us.
Her yoga practice is informed with her passion for psychology, somatic movement, music, poetry and traditional Chinese practices of movement and their underlying healing properties. She imparts her knowledge with insight and passion, drawing on decades of study and practice. She is fortunate to have learnt with inspiring teachers and at schools with both a traditional, Indian lineage and those that have adopted a western and more contemporary approach to Yoga.
In her Teacher Trainings, in classes and on retreat, she encourages the growth of the spiritual and individual self in her students, through cultivating self-love, embracing imperfections and residing in the gentle strength of the higher Self.
She calls her practice Mindful Vinaysa, as incorporating mindfulness with movement and with the breath creates a deeply healing and transformative practice - at times challenging for both body and mind - but always rewarding and uplifting!
Selina spends most of her time either in nature, on her yoga mat, in the kitchen creating dishes, in deep meditation or travelling to teach from her home base in Sofia, Bulgaria.

"Every yoga practice should flow like a good story, with a beginning, a middle, and an end that takes the class to a new and different awareness, experience, or ability." (Maty Ezraty)
