Scott’s approach to yoga practice is based on his studies with hatha yoga master Zhander Remete who founded the Shadow School of Yoga. This style of hatha yoga integrates internal energetic cultivation practices with Ayurvedic/Siddha medical concepts such as the system of vital points known as marma to free the body of its peripheral blockages and ignite the inner fire or Agni. Scott employs yoga practices therapeutically and as an adjunct to TCM or Ayurvedic therapy when appropriate.
Scott has also been a licensed practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for the last 12 years. The TCM modalities he employs are acupuncture, lifestyle/diet therapy, and Chinese herbology. He graduated from the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine where his clinical internship included extensive extracurricular training in Chinese Herbology under Master herbalists Dr. Shu Rong Zhu and Dr. Henry Han. He specializes in herbal therapies for women’s health as well as the musculoskeletal, immune, and digestive systems.
Scott holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
