We are Andrea and Karuna, the founders of Yoga Totems.
Our mission is to connect you beautiful souls and humanity with the medicine of the Animal World. By fusing the sacred art of Yoga from the East with the teachings of Earth honoring from the West, we are hoping to inspire millions to protect our beautiful planet and honor all its species. Andrea is part Metis with Indigenous roots and is a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master. Karuna is rooted to India from his parents and is a Hatha Yoga, Restorative, Meditation Teacher and Creator of the Oracle Board-Game Masters of Light. Together we are bridging cultures to serve our planet in our little way.
In 2015, co-founder Karuna "Nature" Flow was given a vision that showed how peace on earth is established when we harmonize the Eastern Spiritual Practices of Meditation & Yoga with the Western Spiritual Practices of Earth Honouring & Shamanism. When these two would come together in harmony, Heaven would meet Earth, Shiva would meet Shakti and the world would know peace. The Animals were the meeting point between these worlds.
The Yogis of Ancient India would mimic the postures of various species and they soon turned into the Asanas that shape Modern Day Yoga.
The Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (North America) would connect with the spirit of the Animals, name their family clans after them and honored their spirits and teachings.
After we saw how the world was benefitting so much from Yoga Practice and yet our beloved Animals were suffering simultaneously, we decided for our company to be the living representation of this vision and bring forth a new yoga mat that honors all the beloved species on Earth.
This birthed Yoga Totems where certain proceeds from each sale goes either to an Animal Conservation project, plants a tree or supports a visionary medicine artist.
We are hoping through this company that we can serve the the animal world and bring health and healing to all on this beautiful planet. We are so thankful for your support and love!!
