Susan Njeri (23) assisted by Benta Atieno (19), teaching a yoga class at the Kibera Hamlets School.

Susan started Yoga after high school. She didn't have enough money to pursue her education. "I like Yoga because meditation allows me to calm down when I am angry. It also allows me to connect to the community. Seeing how many children we can make smile with our lessons brings me happiness".

Children practicing yoga in schools learn a selection of standing poses, stretching and games. The exercises are easier than usual because children are often malnourished.

Yoga pose: Virabhadrasana III or Warrior III Pose.
