YogaHub Explores Conference
Saturday morning the YogaHub Team met at the solar powered LA Convention Center to attend the Global Mala Project as part of the Yoga Walk Exposition. Our goal was to explore, gather and experience all of the offerings of a yoga lifestyle in order to enhance our understanding and to bring back as much relative material to our site visitors.
The Yoga Walk Exposition provided rows and rows of product marketers of raw foods, hemp clothing, organic teas, book and music publishers and our favorite: elephant dung paper!
In the center of the room sat a raised stage, which held various bands and speakers such as the inspiring Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith and yoga teacher Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa who led an exhilarating and rejuvenating Kundalini class that got everyone jumping.
Throughout the day the energy of the crowd grew in numbers and colorful mats, which surrounded the stage area like a blossoming lotus. Families, children, students and teachers collectively committed to the goal of 108 Sun Salutations created a wave of joyful bodies moving in a soulful and perspired rhythm.
Behind the stage sat an altar that held a circle of rose petals, candles, incense, and a small box of sheets of paper and pencils for us to make an offering of our desired intentions for the betterment of the world. By the end of the day hundreds of lightly folded papers appeared to float in this “fire of red petals.”
The YogaHub team had a full and inspired day of gathering valuable and unique information while speaking with vendors about their products, meeting with old friends and taking in the remarkable efforts of 108 yoga studios and 1008 yoga teachers. In the weeks to come we will be highlighting some of our findings and adding them to our services for your benefit.
