The Ancient Yogis spent their time trekking and meditating in the Himalayas. A lot of their fitness was the result of this trekking and a comprehensive yoga-inspired fitness regimen will be incomplete without this vital element. Solely practicing Asanas in a studio set-up can never train you to the level that the Yogis trained physically; and so we have Yogi Treks – while it’s physically demanding to trek up a hill; it’s also very rewarding to be in the outdoors and practice Meditation atop a hill!

At Total Yoga, we believe that your Yoga practice is incomplete without doing Service! Any amount of Asana, Pranayam and Meditation will not suffice in transforming us; the essential ingredient to be added is the rendering of service to people around you. To this end, we provide the opportunity for all students to help out at Old Age Homes, Blind Schools or Orphanages. Each city that we’re based in; we choose one social volunteering project wherein we invite students to come volunteer their time to teach Yoga to their brothers and sisters and spend quality time with them. (Material donations to these institutions are voluntarily done)
