Skanda Yoga

Ewa Josefsson

9:30 AM

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.

Ashtanga Inspired

11:00 AM

"Eight Limb Path" inspired by Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. In this open class, practice at your own pace; learning of this method involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of precise postures, producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light-strong body and calm mind.
