About our Yoga Classes
TOTAL YOGA is a Yoga style and school that seeks to simplify yoga for everyone! We focus first on Fitness (Asana) and De-stressing (Pranayam), so then you are ready for Meditation to happen.
Total Yoga comprises 3 classes a week - each day you practice a different style of yoga: Vinyasa-flow, Hatha yoga and Power yoga. Through this you train in flexibility, strength and cardio! Then comes Pranayama (Breathing techniques), which is intrinsic to each class and helps in energizing, calming and de-stressing. You explore deeper realms through Yoga Nidra and other Meditation techniques. Kriyas & Shatkarmas for cleansing of the internal body are also taught and practiced periodically. Finally, we involve our student-community in social volunteering projects so that you can practice Service. It's truly a TOTAL YOGA experience!
Currently Total Yoga classes are held in Bangalore ,Pune , Delhi and in Singapore. Apart from regular group classes, Total Yoga conducts customized Personal Training classes, Workshops, Corporate Training and Retreats.To learn more on yoga, read our Yoga Blog.

To fix a date as to the origin of Yoga is to try to fix a date to the origin of Man’s endeavour to know Himself really. Given that, let’s understand as much as we can of how Yoga evolved from the ancient Sages to the modern-day Yoga phenomenon that we are witnessing worldwide. That’s about 5000 years, and counting!
Ancient History of Yoga: The first historical references of Yoga are from the seals found in the ruins of the Indus Valley Civilization (in modern India & Pakistan), circa 3000 BCE. These seals depict Yogic-type postures. Pashupati is the deity often depicted which various scholars connect to Shiva in the later traditions; also known to yogis as Adiguru (first teacher) of Yoga.
