Welcoming John and Julia Scott to Berlin

We are extremely happy to announce that we will be hosting John and Julia in Berlin this October.

The four day Intensive will consist of Sanskrit counted morning practices, one assisted self practice and afternoon workshops with a different focus every day. John and Julia will be assisted by Tom Austin and Ann-Kathrin Weddige, who are both long term students of John.

This workshop is only suitable for practitioners who have at least completed the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series (Yoga Chikitsa).

John Scott

John Scott has been a student of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since 1987, when he was initially taught by Derek Ireland, who then introduced him to K Pattabhi Jois. Patthabi Jois became John’s root teacher, connecting him to the source of this practice. In this way John is one of the few senior teachers who was fortunate to learn in detail in small groups in Mysore, India before AVY became popular.

John’s often metaphorical teaching is embedded in ancient philosophy and symbolism, yet analytical and technical (The Counted Method), while humorous. He sees the practice of yoga as an ongoing journey of deep enquiry of who we truly are and as an opportunity to connect with the purpose of our existence in this physical plane. It is through the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and continuous self enquiry that John is able to bring all his experiences and meditations into his life work of sharing.

Julia Grant-Scott

Julia, who is an actress and dancer, was already introduced to yoga at the age of 18, practicing Iyengar Yoga and Buddhist Meditation. In 2014 however, when Julia was initiated to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, it was apparent to her that this one dynamic practice encompassed all the magic and wonder of a mystical journey of self-expression and discovery. Meeting John in 2016, she since has balanced two lives between assisting yoga retreats in different countries and acting. In 2017, she completed her 200 hour John Scott Yoga Teacher Training. Julia’s teaching is inspired by her multiple disciplines, helping the students to feel met and supported, allowing for their inner expression to be articulated.
