Dearbhla Kelly United States of America


UDAYA Yoga & Fitness

Born and raised in Ireland, Dearbhla Kelly, M.A., is a Los Angeles-based yoga teacher, philosopher and writer. She is particularly interested in neuroscience and yoga and has been published widely in Yoga Journal, Huffington Post, Elephant Journal, Origin Magazine, LA Yoga and other yoga magazines.

Dearbhla’s teaching style is accented by her warmth and keen intelligence combined with dynamic sequencing and attention to breath. She is particularly skillful at marrying the more esoteric teachings of yoga with modern scientific insights and the practicalities of everyday life and weaving the philosophical aspects of yoga into her asana teaching. Her lilting Irish accent and Dublin wit make her classes uniquely enjoyable and her generous hands-on assists speak to the depth of her own practice. Dearbhla teaches yoga, philosophy and neuroscience workshops and leads retreats worldwide.
