Nairobi Kenya Africa Yoga

Benta Atieno, 19, teaches a yoga class in a school in Kibera, considered to be one of the largest slums in Africa. Benta started the course to become a yoga teacher, with the Africa Yoga Project, after finishing dress-making school in 2009. Before starting yoga, she was very lazy and unsure about herself, even about making dresses. She says she was feeling heavy and suffering after walking a short distance. "I was also very shy," she recalls, "and at the first lesson I was even too shy to say my name and I covered my eyes." A selection of standing poses, stretching and games are practiced in the school.
