John Scott

In 1987 John was travelling away from his birth place of New Zealand, searching for a change in life, and while working in Greece, John met his first Ashtanga Yoga teacher; Derek Ireland. This meeting marked the beginning of a whole new journey and search for John. Under direction from Derek, John then traveled to India to study with the Guru of Ashtanga Yoga; Shri K Pattabhi Jois (Guruji). John then became a direct student of Guruji and continued studies with him until his passing in May 2009.
John has only had these two teachers, Derek and Guruji, and therefore his focus has been uninterrupted for over 20 years. This ekatatva or one pointed focus, has guided John through many years of personal practice, the setting up of morning self-practice classes in London , International workshops and Retreat.
John has also published a book and DVD on the Ashtanga Primary Series. John is recognized today alongside the world's advanced practitioners and teachers of Ashtanga Yoga. John imbues his classes with metaphor, spontaneity, vigor, theory, and a splash of humour.
