A group of 13 people carried out the first ever yoga flashmob in Northampton town centre as part of International Yoga Day celebrations.

Yoga teacher Nancy Mirales came up with the idea for the event, which took place in Abington Street on Saturday.

The flashmob began at 1pm and lasted for about 20 minutes. The choreography of the event was created by Olivia Hickman.

Ms Mirales said: “There is a huge community of yoga teachers in Northampton. My vision was to bring them together for day of free of yoga, sound meditation sessions and healing sessions.”

She added: “It was really wonderful, event though it was in the rain.”

To mark International Yoga Day on Sunday, a Yoga in the Park event was also held at the Racecourse, Northampton.
