I was that guy that thought yoga wasn’t for me! Until 8 months that I discovered Skanda Yoga through Maddison, also a runner. She had suggested that because I was having some injuries that yoga would probably help. At first I was very skeptical but decided to give it a shot. From the first class I took, I was like “wow” this was good and a little intense. So good that I am now practicing Skanda three times a week. I’m also happy to report I am injury free for the first time in 3 years and running better than ever. I am now definitely hooked on Skanda Yoga and grateful for the practice. 🙏🏽

Skanda Yoga is simply the best. Having practiced for just over 6 years now, all over Miami as well as in travels, I feel that the Skanda practice is simply the best for so many reasons. The sequencing makes sense, your body will love it. Every class is different, it follows the energy of the Mayan calendar! It is fun, playful and empowering. Skanda takes me beyond my comfort zone and I feel that every time I am lucky enough to practice there, it is the highlight of my day. The best energy, the best yoga, the best teachers, period.
The owners, Ken and Sadhana, are great, filled with vast amount knowledge and experience! Needless to say, they truly have attracted an incredible community of dedicated and inspiring practitioners from all levels. If you want to grow in your practice, this place is for you!!
For me, Skanda Yoga is the perfect mix of my 2 loves, Ashtanga & Vinyasa. It has the structure, mindfulness, tradition, intensity and breath focus of Ashtanga with the playfulness of Vinyasa. All of the 20 sequences were mindfully and intentionally put together to work off the energy of the day, so it give real meaning and purpose to what you are doing.
With different level classes there is something for everyone from beginner to advanced, and I find myself continually being challenged in ways no other class or studio has challenged me in the past. The community in one word is Amazing! Anand and Sadhana are both very knowledgeable, dedicated and devoted practitioners and it comes across in their teaching and the way they run the studio. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this studio, and I’m grateful I found it and to be a part of the Skanda community.
From the moment I entered, I felt such a loving and welcoming energy. With just one class, I decided to take the teacher training with them. This has exceeded all of my expectations. Classes here challenge you both physically and mentally- always pushing you to be the best.
