Stroud Yoga Space was created in 2012 by Rachel Mellish who has lived and taught in the area for nearly 20 years

After many years of holding classes in cold and badly lit village halls, the opportunity opened a way to create a yoga studio in the heart of Stroud

There were many yoga teachers in the Stroud area with no dedicated teaching space, so it didn’t take long to fill the studio with a community of authentic and brilliant teachers

The building used to be a pet shop and it took a lot of creative re-designing and building work done by Rachel’s husband William and a host of other friends and local tradespeople to create the beautiful yoga studio that it is now.

Later in 2016 the neighbouring building came up for sale so we purchased it, knocked through and created a cloakroom and the Yoga Shop.
