Around 10 people joined yoga teacher, Kat Ibrahim, in the morning for an hours yoga class outside on Christchurch Green, Wanstead.

Kat Ibrahim who trained with the Yoga Academy, led the class and said that practicing yoga outside in the elements is liberating, relaxing and strengthening.

Miss Ibrahim said: “We went for the sun salutation series of movements to exercise the skeletal system and to stimulate the internal organs which is great for stress release and for well being.

“Practicing yoga bare foot on the bare earth is a lot different than being indoors.”

Yoga Among the Trees has been included as part of the Wanstead Fringe Festival for three consecutive years. Miss Ibrahim first taught yoga at Glastonbury in 2010 and now has her own indoor and outdoor spaces with which to offer classes.

Miss Ibrahim passionately advocates the health benefits of yoga, she said: “we live in a stressful environment on top of all that there is the obsession with technology.

“With computers and mobile phones we are constantly looking down and that puts a lot of stress on the physical structure, affecting joints and the back.

“Yoga is actually devised to and it is scientifically proven that yoga improves your health.”
