John Scott

John has been a student of Yoga, of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since 1987. John questions when does one start with yoga and believes that once you start to question where are you, where have you come from, what are you, what are you doing and where are you going? When these questions percolate and bubble to the surface, you become aware you are already on the Journey of enquiry, the enquiry into your true nature and purpose for being here on this physical plan. John’s teaching is therefore very metaphorical, analytical, technical and often humorous, his teaching style appeals to students of many backgrounds and nationalities, teaching workshops throughout the world. John remains an avid student of yoga and relationship fascinated by the linking of different traditions and cultures through symbols, language and the Counted Method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

John Scott Interview 2016

John Scott Interview 2016

I have been so lucky to be able to chat with John Scott quite a few times now. This interview amused me immensely because John was particularly difficult to keep on track as we meandered through multiple layers of digressions. In the end I think we did circle around to answer the question I posed at the beginning about moon phase and how it might influence our practice but there were some great journeys along the way.

John Scott Interview 2015

John Scott Interview 2015

It was such a pleasure to be able to practice with John Scott recently and to do this interview at Purple Valley in Goa. John’s energy and enthusiasm radiates from him and inspires all those lucky enough to be in the shala. I took this opportunity to delve into some of the things that are at the core of John’s teachings, such as the vinyasa count, and the embodiment of the posture’s essence (my words not his).
