The yogi community packed out the Indian Hindu Centre on Tuesday as they celebrated the International Day of Yoga.
With smiles on their faces and limbs flexed, yogis flocked to the centre in Albert Road, Ilford, to celebrate the special day with different types of exercises including traditional methods and “laughing” yoga.
Retired GP Sudarshan Kapur, 76, said the event was well attended.
She said: “More than 200 hundred attended. It was very successful.
“So many people of all ages from 10 to 85 enquired about classes in Redbridge.”
Yogis also enjoyed traditional dancing at the event.
Ram Bhandari, general secretary of the Redbridge Indian Welfare Association, praised the organisers of the event.
