Guided Meditation Walk + Savasana
Sunday 10 am - 11 am
Join Justin Walker, an ultra marathon runner and yoga instructor at I AM Yoga + Wellness, for a 1 hour meditation walk through the grounds of Tulsa Garden Center and the Rose Garden. Experience the beauty of Woodward Park through a meditative eye.
Meditation allows us to go deeper inside the mind, into our subconscious mind. In the studio, we move and breath through postures to achieve this mindlessness. Through some mindful breathwork and walking, we will move through Woodward Park to achieve the same, if not a greater level of mindlessness. Getting outside, grounding our energy, slowing down and taking in the beauty of the simple things can be a powerful tool in helping us reach for that silence in our minds. There is a tremendous power in silence.
The session will start with 5 minutes of breathwork on your yoga mat. Then we will embark on a 30-minute guided walk through the park. We will then come back to your mat for a seated mediation followed with an extended Savasana. The session will last 60 minutes.
Hi! My name is Justin Walker and I finished my RYT-200 teacher training because I believe yoga is for everyone and not just for the super flexible people you see in the pictures. I started practicing yoga 6 years ago as a way to help my tight legs. Being a competitive ultra-runner, my body was so tight I couldn't even come close to touching my toes. After I dedicated myself to practicing regularly, I quickly noticed a difference.
My yoga practice has been my secret weapon to staying healthy while running 70-100 miles per week. Yoga to me is all about connecting back to our bodies through breath and movement, tapping into our bodies internal wisdom and strength. We are all stronger than we ever realize, both mentally and physically.
I like to move slow in my classes, focusing on moving the body with the breath through the postures. Come slow down on your mat with me, disconnect from our busy lives and reconnect back to your body!
