Peter Scott - Advanced Iyengar Yoga Teacher

Peter Scott

Founder, director & Advanced Junior 2 teacher

Peter Scott is one of Australia’s pre-eminent Iyengar Yoga practitioners and teachers, having devoted almost 40 years to the art and science of yoga since beginning practice in 1977.

Peter is a Junior Advanced 2 teacher of Iyengar Yoga, certificated directly from Geeta S Iyengar. Peter began teaching in 1982 and in 1987 founded the ‘Rathdowne Yoga Room’ in North Carlton – where many of Melbourne’s current Iyengar Yoga teachers trained.

Peter’s teaching is distinguished by his extensive knowledge of the body and yogic wisdom, the clarity he creates when teaching, and his quiet ability to inspire and guide the practitioner along the path of yoga. Peter’s classes, workshops and teacher training are a culmination of his years of dedicated practice & teaching.

His forte is in bringing together all aspects of yoga and confidently providing an accessible path to understanding this respected and invaluable tool to self knowledge. He is also a Naturopath and Herbalist (not currently practising).

Peter contributes yoga asana articles to Australian Yoga Life magazine.
