Scott Johnson has over 16 years of experience with Ashtanga Yoga. He is a devoted yoga and mindfulness practitioner. He is the co-founder and main teacher at Stillpoint Yoga London which has been open since 2009.
Scott’s teaching is greatly inspired and influenced by world renowned teachers John Scott, Lucy Crawford and Manju Pattabhi Jois. Scott met John in 2002 and instantly felt the deep connection to the ashtanga yoga lineage through John’s teaching of the ashtanga yoga practice. Scott’s relationship with John has lead him to become a senior teacher in the John Scott Ashtanga yoga community. Scott is also authorized to teach the primary and intermediate series of ashtanga yoga by Manju Pattabhi Jois.
In 2019 Scott Johnson co-founded Amayu Yoga, a new organisation dedicated to growing compassionate and highly skilled students and teachers of Ashtanga yoga, with consent and student empowerment at it’s heart.
Scott has also also undergone extensive training with Clear Mind Institute, gaining their level 3 certificate in Mindfulness and Compassion.
Scott teaches with encouragement, insight and integrity to the ashtanga yoga lineage he has had access to. He adheres to the authentic tradition and lineage of ashtanga yoga, assisting practitioners in discovering how the practice can unfold, not only personally on the mat, but also in the wider context of daily life.
