Yoga fans push for peace at the U.S.-Mexico border

The yoga practitioners held their session along the Rio Bravo, across the border from El Paso, Texas.

"We want to change the image the world has towards Mexico by showing them Yoga is also practised here," said instructor Carmen Reyes.

The yoga session began with breathing exercise followed by stretching and various other postures.
