After everyone had arrived, the group had a small meeting inside the yoga studio, where yoga teacher Steven Vincent explained the importance of the walk to come.
"It's not a protest, it's not a demand for peace," he told the group. "It's not a demonstration for peace, it's a demonstration of peace."
Vincent, who led the day's event, is also a member of Peace is Every Step L.A., and said the walk was a way to promote peace within one's self and peace in the world.
"It's the way that we walk, the way we breathe — it comes from mindfulness practices," he said. "By the simple act of walking we can bring peace to ourselves."
The walk was Peace is Every Step's first event in Glendale, and attendees said they were excited to be a part of it.
"I think anytime we can promote and instill peacefulness — that's what yoga is all about," said Elyse Briggs, owner of Yoga at the Village.
She and several others wore brown "Peace is Every Step" shirts during their walk around the block.
For Rachel Parker, of Los Angeles, it was not her first time taking part in this type of walk.
"This is the second time that I'm participating, I got so much out of it the first time," she said. "These times call for a demonstration of what peaceful behavior actually is."
Following the walk, the group also performed an "eating meditation," wherein it is important to concentrate on appreciating the food and the present moment.
"I think this is marvelous," Morgan Lofting, of Glendale, said of the event. "It's a chance to meet new people and demonstrate in a positive way."
