The inquisitive YoYos entered the jam-packed unembellished studio of Santa Monica Yoga which breathed with tranquility as devoted yogis settled quietly into their vast familiar space, anticipating the spiritual mind/body practice of this week’s “Mid-Week Oasis” with Julian Walker, recipient of the, “Best Compassionate Yogi” award by L.A. Weekly.

With a backdrop of the soft sounds of nature; brilliantly intermixed with the hypnotic resonance of tribal percussion and soulful melodies, Julian began this passionate 90 minute yoga journey, with a relaxing “on the floor” sequence that loosened our backs, opened our minds and expanded our hearts. Turnin’ up the fervor, he invited this eager group to verbally express their internal feelings through vibrant, enthusiastic sound; which manifested in thunderous “OM’s and emerged continually throughout this uninhibited practice in the form of mellow moans and soothing sighs.

Continuing the powerful, full body, challenging sequence, this recognized, “master of body work”, led every yogi in this inspired space to tap into a deep personal practice; encouragin’ each to shed unnecessary burdens and replace with life questions and individual intentions; allowing the possibility of findin’ honest answers. The mesmerized YoYo’s inhaled the magical voice of this revered leader as he recited the poetry of Walt Whitman, Rumi and Hafiz throughout this stimulating, “eyes closed” practice that focused on the exploration of connection, self honesty and love. Masterfully, this teacher gave every yogi the space to find their own way, their own posture, and their authentic self; assisting each to open to their unique promise through the discovery of their personal truth.
