15 April Stroud Yoga and Vegan Festival

A festival of yoga, meditation, well-being, healthy living and vegan food at Marling School, from 10am to 4.30pm.

Come and meet Elles at the Kishori Yoga stall to find out about classes and events.
Or better still join her talk and her class at the festival:

11.50 – 12.30 Awareness Heals – The Art of Listening to the Body (Talk Room)

13.40 – 14.20 Yin Yoga – Slow & Steady for Deep Tissue Release (Jaipur Room)

You can book tickets for the day in advance (£5) here or on the door (£8).
Bring your own mat, or borrow one from Elles at her stall.

Two Class Discount

The benefits of yoga are greatly enhanced if you practice more than once a week. A wake up stretch, a few deep breaths, a moment of contemplation are helpful at any time of the day. As yoga has a tendency to spill over into daily life anyway you have probably started to include these moments already.

But even better is a second class each week and because not everyone has the space or the discipline to do this at home I’m offering a discount to those who already come to one of my classes.

If you book 2 classes a week you get one class FREE per half term.

Second class options are:
Tuesday Amberley (Hatha Flow)
Wednesday Minchinhampton (Gentle)
Thursday Rodborough (Yin)
Friday Selsley (Gentle)

See timetable for further details, please contact Elles to apply.

Yoga Video

Over the Christmas holidays I intend to make a proper yoga practice video. This is something many people have asked for over the years and it looks like it is finally going to happen! Like the idea? Here’s how you can help us make it work:

We’re planning to make two videos:
The Golden Seed: a short flowing sequence which we’ve been practising at the Devon Retreat and in the Gentle Yoga class.
Home Practice Sequence: a 25 minute session that covers the basics, suitable for all abilities.

BUT as it’s going to be a quality production by a semi-professional videographer I would like to ask for your support and a donation of £5 or £10 towards the project would be most gratefully received.

The videos will be made public and free of charge.
This is a non-profit venture. Any surplus funds will be donated to

If you’d like to contribute please send me a message and I’ll send you the details.
