Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga RETREAT 
with John Scott

Join John Scott, one of the worlds most inspirational AVY Teachers for 2 weeks. Set in beautiful Southern Italy in the Small Shala of Samadhi. John will be sharing his joy and knowledge, deepening the understanding of AVY and working as intimately as Guruji Shri K Pattabhi Jois did with him. Beata Darowska a graduate of the JSY teacher-training program will assist John.

Here is a great opportunity to Practice with John Scott for 2 Weeks.  John has reached a point in his teaching where he wishes to share to provide longer retreats the way Guruji did.

This new format allows for the student to build an intimate and deep relationship with their practice, to really focus and work on personal growth.

 This immersion is for 2 weeks. You must be prepared to attend both weeks, no 1 week bookings will be accepted

Week 1 – 1 group led Primary Series with John and assistants
Week 2 – Group will be split into 2. 1 Group will be a self-assisted practice and the other will be a led Primary Series. Groups to be decided during the immersion

New Zealander by birth, John originally studied Industrial Design both in New Zealand and Australia to graduate with a Batchelor of Applied Science in Industrial Design.

John is a dedicated and direct student of Shri K. Pattabhi Jois since 1989. John was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga by Derek Island 22 years ago, while traveling through Europe. Two years later John began his studies with Guruji – Shri K Pattabhi Jois of Mysore India, and since then has continued to grow in the practice and share the practice with many other students on the path of yoga.

In 1993 John was certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by Shri K Pattabhi Jois. John incorporates design philosophies with yoga philosophies adding a very precise, detailed and colourful metaphorical presentation to his teaching.

His highly individual, analytical and sensitive approach touches deeply the students who work with him – resulting in a strong following. John now mainly teaches “Mysore Style” and “Vinyasa Counting” at Stillpoint with Lucy. Stillpoint is the 3rd Centre that John and Lucy have created together while parenting two children.

They have been pioneers in the yoga world travelling many times to Mysore with two babies. John and Lucy’s teaching reputation is world-wide, presenting workshops internationally for the past 15 years. John, with Lucy, has produced a best-selling book, “Ashtanga Yoga”, and a counted primary series DVD, and is currently writing a series of books based on his personal experience of this practice (suitable for all levels of practitioner).

John is also known for his illustrations/charts (line drawings) of Ashtanga Yoga Primary and Intermediate and Advanced Series, which continue to circulate Worldwide, having been published in chart form and then later in book form in “Astanga Yoga”, by Lino Miele.
