Hundreds of people from Redbridge took part in a yoga workshop last week for Older People’s Week.

Former GP Dr Sudarshan Kapur, 76, of The Drive, South Woodford, led the class in breathing exercises and yoga before an afternoon of cultural activities.

This included poems, songs, short skits, and the class enjoyed the opportunity to enjoy traditional garba dancing.

Attendees included the Mayor of Redbridge, Councillor Linda Huggett, the Sikh Women’s Alliance, and members of the VHP Temple in Ilford.

More than 150 people took part in the event at the Panjabi Centre, Ley Street, Ilford, last Thursday.

Dr Kapur, who recently received an award for her “outstanding yoga teaching in the community” in Birmingham on September 17, said the day had been a resounding success.

Dr Kapur said: “We had a great mix of ages and enjoyed a hot vegetarian meal after for free.”

“Everyone enjoyed and wants to have more events like this one.”
