Each morning will start with a short guided meditation to connect to the three dimensional breath and then to the breaths directional flow through the spine.

John considers all classes to be ‘mini teacher trainings’ and therefore passes the ‘Count’ on as a gift to be explored and shared.
This method of sharing connects the students to their own inner teacher.

• JOHN SCOTT •

John a certified and direct student of Shri K Pattabhi Jois has been a student of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since 1987.

During retrospective reverie, John realises that much of his early years at school were spent daydreaming – “eyes fixed out through the window as if travelling to another dimension of reality..”
When does one really start yoga? John questions and believes that once you start to question; where you are, 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 of being here on this physical plane.

It is through the practice of AVY and deep enquiry into the self that John has brought all his earlier experiences and meditations into his life work of sharing. John’s teaching is therefore very metaphorical, analytical, technical and often humorous. His teaching style appeals to students of many backgrounds and nationalities. John remains an avid student of yoga and relationships – fascinated by the linking of different traditions and cultures through symbols, language and the Counted Method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
