Tattwagyana (Clodagh Kiely)

Clodagh worked in finance for many years and the pressures of work and family led her to her first Satyananda yoga class in Cork in 1995, and she has been passionate about the benefits of yoga ever since. She lived in London and Australia where her dream to qualify as a Satyananda yoga teacher was realised. She taught yoga in Australia for 2 years before returning to Ireland. Clodagh is now in her 6th year of teaching yoga in Cork and is keen to continue to pass on her knowledge and skills to others, to enhance their health and wellbeing. Clodagh believes Satyananda Yoga has something to offer everybody, regardless of age or level of fitness.
