A woman from East Finchley was invited to blow away the January blues and take part in a yoga session on the London Eye.

The London Eye reopened last weekend with visitors given the chance to take part in masterclasses focused on the mind, body and soul. 

The Lift London event included yoga sessions and meditation, as well as a masterclass in how to transform a passion into a source of income.

Mercedes Benson, who lives in East Finchley, enjoyed a yoga session while taking in the views from the London Eye.

She said: “This is a great way to start the weekend, I have never had the chance to experience yoga in this way and the amazing views from the Eye over London really heightened my experience.”
