Nairobi Kenya Africa Yoga

A game played during a yoga class held by Susan Njeri, 23, and assisted by Benta Atieno, 19, in Kibera Hamlets School. Susan started yoga after high school when she didn't have enough money to continue her education. "I really like yoga," she adds, "because it allows me to calm down when I am angry, through meditation, and because it allows me to connect to the community. Seeing how many children we can make smile with our lessons brings me happiness." A selection of standing poses, stretching and games are practiced in the school. The exercises are made easier because children are often malnourished.The yoga pose is "Vrksasana" or the Tree pose.
