Scott’s philosophy about yoga:
When I discovered yoga, I was immediately attracted to its focus and energy, its grace and strength. For me, yoga has become a beautiful vehicle that directs me toward spirituality, mindfulness, and health. It shapes every aspect of my life and provides me a path of self-discovery, illuminating the beauty of my human experience. I believe in the immense benefits of yoga for the body, mind, and spirit. I believe yoga should be approachable and enjoyable to every person, regardless of age, experience, or life-circumstance. I love to infuse humor, storytelling, poetry, and music into my teaching because that is what inspires me. My hope is to offer something from my heart to every one of my students. I love to share yoga with people because I love to see it enrich their lives.
I currently offer public classes at Centered City Yoga in Salt Lake City, Utah.
When I’m not on the mat, I love to read (I have a BA in English). I also love jazz, cooking, running, and doing anything with the love of my life, Seneca. My other passion is playing the saxophone with my jazz group, the Jazz Brulée and my soul band The Soulistics.
