Weekend Workshop with John Scott, Yama Yoga Studios, Doha, Qatar


This workshop focused on traditional Ashtanga lead primary series as well as the expansion of one’s practice beyond just asana. Scott is a master of metaphor around the breath and the eight limbs being like spindles inside a wheel that hold the practice together and support it smoothly. Missing limbs=missing spokes in the wheel and can compromise one’s journey. I recall him describing his mindfulness around breath even when entering rooms in his everyday life—how the practice has permeated moments well beyond those in a shala or private practice space. He is truly an accomplished and empowering treasure to study under.
