Scott Johnson

Director and senior ashtanga yoga teacher at Stillpoint Yoga London

Scott has been practising ashtanga yoga since 2001 and teaching since 2003. He is the co-founder and main teacher at Stillpoint Yoga London (founded in 2009 with the late Ozge Karabiyik). Scott lives with his wife Louise and three sons in Kent and has travelled an hour to teach the 3.5 hour morning self-practice classes every day since 2011, when the classes moved from 3 to 5 days per week (Monday-Friday).

Scott’s teaching is greatly inspired and influenced by John Scott and Lucy Crawford Scott. Scott met John in 2001 and instantly felt the deep connection to the ashtanga yoga lineage through John’s teaching and his relationship with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Scott connected with John and Lucy in workshops and assisted self-practice weeks through the years, and in 2008/2009 he undertook a 2-month intensive teacher training at their Stillpoint yoga retreat in New Zealand. It was here that Scott met the late Ozge Karabiyik, and between them they created Stillpoint Yoga London.

In 2014 Scott became one of the few teachers to receive the 500hr certification from John Scott Yoga to teach the primary and intermediate series of ashtanga yoga and was recommended by John Scott to be listed on, a highly regarded website that promotes teachers of ashtanga yoga around the world.

Scott is registered as a senior yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance UK and he has also undergone extensive training with Clear Mind Institute, gaining their level 1 & 2 certificate in Mindfulness and Compassion.

Scott teaches with encouragement, insight and integrity to the ashtanga yoga lineage, assisting practitioners in discovering how the practice can unfold, not only personally on the mat, but also in the wider context of daily life.
