Michele Harney’s Personal & Professional Yoga Bio

Michele teaches Yoga to individuals and small groups in Dundrum

Following graduation from Dublin City University in 1989 Michele furthered her interest in psychology through attainment of a diploma in Counselling Skills from NUI Maynooth, also a Certificate in Gestalt Therapy and a Diploma in Life & Business Coaching.

As part of her exploration of psychology and the link between body and mind, Michele became interested in Yoga.

Following completion of Introductory and Foundation Yoga courses and encouraged by the depth and professionalism underpinning this approach to teaching, Michele, from 2005 to 2008, completed a professionally accredited four year Yoga Teacher Training Programme, through Paul Harvey’s Centre for Yoga Studies (cYs), Bristol UK, and in 2010 an advanced two year Yoga Further Studies Programme  through cYs, focusing on Yoga psychology and the therapeutic application of Yoga.

The cYs approach to Yoga is informed  by the teachings of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar  who was one of the most important modern teachers  of Yoga and has had a profound influence on Western understanding of Yoga.
