Benta Atieno, 19, and her assistant Susan Njeri, 23, teach a Yoga class in a school of Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya, considered to be one of the largest slum in Africa. After finishing from the dress making school in 2009, Benta started the course with Africa Yoga Project to become a Yoga teacher. Before starting Yoga, she was shy, lazy, felt tired and heavy after walking for a short distance, unsure about herself, and her ability to make dresses. Benta was feeling heavy and she was suffering after walking for a short distance. In the schools. a selection of standing poses, stretching and games are practiced and the exercises are easier because children are often malnourished.
