Hello everybody and welcome to EYK Episode 5!

listen here button

Just in case you are a new listener, the Elsie’s Yoga Kula Episodes are all about community. There are times when I want share with you guys more than the 5-7 minute intro to my Yoga Class Episodes will allow me 😉 This is where I share some of the feedback that I’ve gotten from you guys, plus answer some questions I get, or anything else that I desire to put out. As with Episode 4 of EYK, this episode also has an interview!

This episode is brought to you by Elsie’s Yoga Class Podcast App for the iPhone and iPod touch, you can find it in the iTunes App Store for $3.99. I’m finally being more digilent at making sure that I do add the extra content to the app, so if you look at the extras, you’ll find a PDF of the class sequence, and for this one, a free MP3 from our guest Donna De Lory 🙂 Have you had a chance to check out her music? Well if you haven’t I’m going to intersperse her music from her latest album Sanctuary throughout our interview. She is a FASCINATING woman. I cannot wait to share her story with you guys. Did you know that she worked with Madonna. THE Madonna, on tour…for many years? Pretty cools stuff…

I’ve been using her music before my public classes and during my private sessions. I love the way it lingers in the background and inspires and yet stays out of the way. My FAVORITE track on the album is called Bathe in These Waters. It gets me every time!

Virtual Yoga Student Feedback and Questions

Along with this interview I I’ll be reading some feedback from you lovely folks and address some questions so that everyone may benefit!

So listen to the full episode! It’s 58 min long 😀

Also a little reminder: Give it up for my awesome sponsors Prancing Leopard Organics 🙂 Their clothing is off the hook. If you haven’t had an opportunity to check out some of their stuff, DO IT! I’m also in the process of getting a few more reviews out there letting you know about some other pieces from their line. I ADORE their stuff! And special for you all….You guys get a 15% coupon code at checkout by using the coupon code that I mention on the podcast!

Speaking of reviews…like I mentioned before, I’m going to be doing more and more of them, and I would love to include you guys in the whole thing! Soooooo, if you have a favorite yoga mat, yoga prop, yoga clothing, that you adore please submit a review! I have a little form that you can submit OR you can use the form as a guideline, write your own thing and send it one in! eyogaclass (at) gmail (dot) com.
