‘Yogi Trek’ was conceptualized as an outdoor fitness cum meditative experience – to take yogis outside the yoga studio!
The Ancient Yogis did a lot of trekking and walking in the Himalayas; however as modern yogis we find that our range of physical training is limited to asanas. So in order to have a well-rounded natural fitness experience as well as to do Pranayam outdoors; we introduced monthly Yogi Treks to places around Bangalore city. We also found that Meditation happened spontaneously to students in the great outdoors as compared to in the studio classes!
This Yogi Trek we are going to Skandagiri!
From Wikipedia: This mountain is also known as Kalavara Durga, is an ancient mountain fortress located approximately 70 km from Bangalore city, and 3 km from Chikballapur in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is off Bellary Road and overlooks Nandi Hills, Muddenahalli, and Kanivenarayanapura. The peak is at an altitude of about 1350 meters.
We’ll be trekking up the hill nearly 1hour and 30 minutes followed by Yoga and meditation atop the hill; Brunch at Silver Oaks Farm near Nandi Hills.
