Alyce Harrison Yoga


my self

I have loved movement and dance for my whole life and I am lucky enough to have been introduced to yoga at a young age by my father, Jack Harrison. Since taking my first class in 2005, yoga has been a regular practice for me – something that I see as an essential part of my wellbeing.

I have participated in trainings in Anusara, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Hatha yoga in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Bali, Thailand and Canada.

I have studied in person with international teachers such as Jason Crandell, Stephanie Snyder, Noah Maze, Kathryn Budig, Benita Wolfe, Brigid Kramer Woods and Amy Ippoliti.

I qualified as a yoga teacher in 2019, having completed my teacher training with the Celtic School of Yoga in the Burren, located in the West of Ireland.

I have learned that there are clear connections between Ireland and India in the field of yoga and my aim is to integrate the teachings of the Celtic School of Yoga into my yoga offerings.

In 2020, I completed a qualification in women’s and prenatal yoga studies with Lou Horgan.

I am from Galway, living in Westmeath, and I am a mother, an author, a lawyer, a historian and a lover of cold water swims with pals.

I offer regular classes for all levels, from beginners to experienced yogis, as well as curated events weaving Ireland’s spiritual heritage with yogic traditions and philosophies. My classes are dynamic and are defined by my attention to physical alignment and flowing with the breath. I also offer pregnancy yoga classes and workshops for expectant mothers.

My background in Vinyasa and Anusara yoga, my focus on Celtic mythology, Irish folklore and poetry and my training in women’s yoga allow me to offer a unique teaching style. I am drawn to create a sacred space for people to feel a sense of belonging as well as a connection with their own innate truth.

I am particularly drawn to creating this space for women. The ‘Goddess’ had a very special place in Celtic mythology, symbolising the spiritual aspect of nature. Women work from a place of intuition and deep knowing, from their connection with certain cycles of nature – the menstrual cycle mirrors the lunar cycle in length.

The incorporation of the Celtic attention to nature and the changing cycles is invaluable in the practice of women’s yoga at this time.
