About Our Name
In Hindu iconography, Ganapati sits at the threshold. He is the beginning of beginnings. Our name, Twisted Trunk Yoga, refers to more than just the physical way we move our bodies in asana. Ganapati’s trunk is powerful and strong, supple and gentle, and has the ability to twist and turn in every creative direction. And if you look carefully — his trunk always points to something sweet.

Shri Maha Ganapati Gayatri Mantra
tat parushaya vidmahe
May we know That Person
May we contemplate the Twisted Trunk
May the Single Tusk illumine our minds.
