About

Our Mission

Skanda Yoga Studio is a nexus for practices that challenge and transform the spirit. Yoga is first and foremost a scientific technology that harnesses the innate capability of the body as a vehicle for transformation. It is a universal tool that, when used properly, unveils the light at the core of our being and helps us identify as an artful expression of Grace. Motivated by a deep love of the human condition, we maintain that yoga is a birthright of every human being, and we hence aim to uphold yoga as an agent of personal and community development.

In keeping with our mission, we staff experienced instructors that share with practitioners of all levels the proper techniques for fostering growth on the mat and translating those insights off the mat and into the world. We host special workshops and guest teacher residencies to enrich our study and practice of yoga. In order to execute our mission of offering yoga as a universally accessible tool, we make sustained community outreach efforts on multiple fronts, including donation-based community classes, active fund-raising for charitable causes, and ongoing public opportunities for integral practice and collaborative growth.

Skanda Yoga

Skanda Yoga is an emerging style of yoga that embraces techniques from many traditions. It is a breath-inspired alignment-based power vinyasa style that sets a physical and spiritual intention based on the daily oracle of the Maya calendar systems. The Warrior Spirit is invoked for a challenging, inspiring, and transformational practice. Each class is a unique exploration of asana that refines all aspects of our being.

Skanda Yoga uses the modern rendition and new global standard of working with the Maya calendar systems known as the Dreamspell. Our asana practice embodies the energy of the Dreamspell in order to align with nature’s cyclical patterns. This increases resonance with the universal energy and the experience of synchronicity off the mat. Synchronicity is the attunement to a universal set of principles based on a harmonic mathematical matrix. This matrix is the underlying structure of reality that connects events regarding subjective experience, the physical world, society, and culture as they co-arise. By assimilating the 13-Moon Calendar into our practice, we tune into the synchronic order that is the core nature of conscious evolution.
