Scott Johnson, founder and senior teacher at Stillpoint Yoga London, is being asked more and more to share what he teaches daily at SYL.

Scott has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga since 2003 and co-founded Stillpoint Yoga London in 2009 with the late Ozge Karabiyik. Scott is the main teacher at SYL and is present every weekday morning between 06:30 & 10:00. Scott has undergone extensive training with John Scott and Lucy Crawford since 2001 and is a graduate of their highly regarded 2 month 200hr teacher training programme (he graduated in 2009). In 2015 he became one of the first teachers to receive the 500hr certification from John Scott Yoga to teach the primary and intermediate series. Scott has also been authorised by Manju Pattabhi Jois, son of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, to teach the primary series of ashtanga yoga. He is registered as a senior yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals and has also undergone extensive training with Clear Mind Institute, gaining their level 1 & 2 certificate in Mindfulness and Compassion. 

Scott’s years of dedicated and committed teaching each morning has led SYL to become a highly respected central London ashtanga yoga shala. He teaches with the greatest of love and respect to the lineage of Sri K Pattabhi Jois which he is connected to through his teacher and friend John Scott. He meets everyone who comes to SYL and looks to create long term relationships integrating the practise of yoga and embodied mindfulness as a way of meeting the world.

All workshops are CPD approved for Yoga Alliance Professional members.
