Health-conscious Kingstonians will be in their element as the borough gets its first ever Yoga and Vegan Festival next month.

The one-day festival at Kingston Grammar School’s Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, October 15, will consist of free yoga sessions, live music and demonstrations and stalls selling vegan, raw food and ethical products.

Yoga teachers from around Kingston will offer free 30-minute sessions so visitors can try various different styles of the exercise available in the area.

Kriti Sachdeva, a vegan yoga teacher and chief organiser of the festival, said: “The festival marks the celebration of two ideas that are changing the world for better - yoga and veganism.

“We have organised similar events in the past and intend to organise more worldwide.”

Entry costs £3 and is free for under 13s with proceeds going to the Mayor of Kingston’s charitable trust and animal welfare charity Miracle’s Mission.
