The one-day event, born in Mysore, India in 2010 raises awareness of and funds for the anti-trafficking organisation Odanadi.
Odanadi rescues and rehabilitates women and children affected by human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
Yoga plays a vital role in the rehabilitation program at Odanadi, helping survivors rebuild their confidence and self-worth.
A group of Norwich locals braved the frosty temperatures to take part in the event in Chapelfield Gardens.
Chloe Tucker, Norwich yoga instructor, said: “We were determined not to let the event be rained off.
“We still had a lot of fun and raised money for a worthy cause. Next year, the event will be inside!”
