ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

People at the Albany Yoga Project took a trip around the world on Sunday while staying right in the Good Life City.

A yoga instructor from Kenya used Skype to lead the free class.

Those in attendance followed her through a number of different poses and breathing exercises.

Organizers said the Albany Yoga Project, which teamed up with the Africa Yoga Project, aims to give people a sense of community by hosting free yoga events.

"From a local prospective and a global prospective, showing them one pose at a time how we are connected through the same Yoga practice. It's here in Albany and it's there in Nairobi Kenya as well," said Sylvia Maxwell with the Albany Yoga Project.
