It is situated in a tranquil environment in Blackrock, County Dublin.

Clonlea Yoga Studio has evolved out from the Viniyoga approach. While many of the teachers have trained in and teach Viniyoga, the studio has grown to incorporate other aproaches Please see individual teacher profiles for more information.
