BACKBEND WORKSHOP - Dearbhla Kelly Blog

Dearbhla Kelly
and special musical guest Allie Stringer
Open-heartedness is the key to joy. In this challenging class we will use backbends to release
blocked energy and make space in the heart. Through a combination of breath, chanting, and asana
we will unlock the heart and make way for the expansive joy and bliss that is our true nature.
Dearbhla Kelly began her practice of yoga thirteen years ago while living in Amsterdam. A longtime student of Ana Forrest, Dearbhla has completed both foundation and advanced level teacher
trainings with Ana. She assists Ana at yoga conferences, workshops and teacher trainings around
the country and taught at Forrest Yoga Institute until its closing in January 2007. She recently completed a six week teacher training with Saul David Raye: Holistic Yoga for Healing, Peace
and Spiritual Awakening. The yoga she loves cultivates compassion, radiates calm, and celebrates
play, and her teaching hopes to inspire these qualities in others.
Allie began learning to chant at age eleven under the guidance of her uncle, noted kirtan singer
Dave Stringer, with whom she has toured widely in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
