When combined with exercise and a reasonable amount of rocket fuel, sessions spent atop the platform can speed users’ fitness goals. The studio also supports clients' inner and outer well-being with more traditional approaches, including Zumba, burlesque, and chakra-meditation classes as well as a range of soothing spa services.

At first, Ken von Roenn III only saw yoga as a way to increase his flexibility for his true passion, climbing. Slowly, yoga began to eclipse climbing as his primary love. Now he’s a devoted practitioner and instructor, and his love has led him to create Skanda Yoga Studio’s namesake style. The Skanda yoga style hinges on posture and controlled breathing, much like Vinyasa yoga. However, Skanda augments these practical techniques with a holistic component: each Skanda session finds its spiritual footing in the Mayan Dreamspell calendar.
Sessions work to align participants’ bodies with natural cyclical patterns found in this brand of Mayan mysticism that has proven more enduring than federal laws carved into stone with an exceptionally pointy Sharpie. Ken and his team of instructors offer classes outside their studio’s signature style, complementing their Skanda instruction with courses in modalities such as power yoga, gentle therapeutics, and Kundalini.
