Skanda yoga seeks to channel universal energy by syncing traditional Vinyasa flow practices to the ancient Mayan lunar calendar. Well-balanced instructors guide students through a series of mat-top personal inversions aimed at blending mind and body without the use of a metaphysical food processor. Each Skanda yoga class invokes the Warrior Spirit for inspiration and draws on the daily oracle of the Mayan Dreamspell, a 13-moon astrological calendar, for guidance. These pliable philosophers comprehend the body as a vehicle for metamorphosis, viewing yoga as the corporeal engine and spandex pants as the beaded seat covers. Clients can also taste-test classes in a variety of other yoga styles, from Ashtanga to Kundalini. See the studio’s schedule for full details.
Skanda Yoga Studio
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 and Kundalini.
