Workshops

Initiation through Backbends: Today's vinyasa class will be focusing on backbends. Going into the back body represents the unknown, the mystery, and the unseen potential. This heart-opening practice will teach you techniques to do deeper and safer backbends.

Inversions Workshop: This yoga asana practice will focus on inversions (handstands, forearm stands, headstands, and shoulderstand). There will be a sufficient warm-up and cool down sections to balance the class. It will be challenging, fun, and informative.

Arm Balances Workshop: This practice will be a powerful play of arm balances. You will learn how to modify advanced poses like eka pada koundinyasana and ashtavakrasana so they are attainable. Advanced students will be given difficult transitions to work on.

Vinyasa Overview: This class will combine all the techniques learned over the week into a dynamic practice that incorporates backbends, forward folds, twists, arm balances, and inversions.

Lina Vallejo

Lina "Sadhana Shakti" Vallejo- A teacher in the word’s most profound sense – throughout all aspects of life – Lina Vallejo meets each individual that approaches her with absolute attention, compassion and integrity. A teacher of teachers, she has educated over one hundred new yoga teachers in the style of Skanda Yoga®, which she co-created with her husband and asana master Ken “Anand” von Roenn. She is the owner of Skanda Yoga Studio, elected ‘Miami’s Best’ (New Times Magazine 2015 & 2017), while also one of the most sought after one-on-one private yoga instructors in South Florida.

Lina Vallejo started teaching yoga in 2001 and currently teaches weekly classes and bi-yearly teacher trainings (200 and 300 RYS) at Skanda Yoga Studio when she is not traveling leading retreats and workshops. Lina Vallejo truly sees her students, she can intuitively spot dormant potential in a pose, or the need to ease off the same pose, with stunning accuracy. Her alignment cues are often specific to each individual, making a group class setting feel similar to a one-on-one private class and making each student feel that they are truly being noticed.

With extensive knowledge of South American shamanic traditions, reiki energy work, numerology, nutrition, Thai massage, chakra balancing, as well as aroma- and crystal therapy, Lina Vallejo brings a touch of the otherworldly and sacred into everything she does. Her guided meditations and weekly sangha study groups focus on the practice of Bhakti yoga, the art of Self-knowledge through love and devotion. Her yoga asana practice has shifted from first Ashtanga, then Anusara, into her own Skanda Yoga®, which for the past ten years has been accompanied by a deep inner search for self knowledge. She has traveled to and learned from Indian Gurus, Mayan priests and Self-realized yogis and yoginis from all over the world, in order to absorb and share the understanding of each living being’s divine connection with the true Self.
