With Scott Anderson
To attend Mixed Levels Class + Yoga and the Stress Response workshop combined, select package option above. Join us for one or both.
Feeling stressed is a modern epidemic, and Yoga has become a popular stress-reliever. In this workshop, participants will learn a simple, physiology-based Yoga routine to help reduce feelings of stress. The basics of stress physiology will be covered, and the yoga routine will use the body responses to stress as the point of entry to help relieve the mental experience of stress.
Scott began practicing yoga as a teenager and refined his practice through his years as a college student/athlete. With a background in physics and biomechanics, Scott deeply explores the logic of the body's anatomical structures and its systems. Scott studied with Hatha Yoga masters Dona Holleman and Ramanand Patel, and spent six years studying intensively with Roger Eischens. By working closely with master teachers, Scott came to recognize the human body as a microcosm of the greater natural world, which inspires his creative and grounded teaching presence.
In addition to Scott’s extensive yoga training, he is also a certified bodyworker and Pilates instructor. Through Zero Balancing (ZB) training, Scott developed greater insight into the workings of the skeleton and how the bones influence the rest of the organism. Through his extensive Pilates training, Scott has deepened his understanding of the body's core and its contribution to wellness and vitality.
Scott is also a dedicated student of the meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. He is a Facilitator within the Tergar community, where he facilitates in-person and online Joy of Living meditation programs.
Scott is currently working on an MS at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in the field of Kinesiology, with plans to pursue a Ph.D degree. His research interests include Yoga interventions for those on the autism spectrum.
