John Scott is a Certified iRest Teacher and a graduate of the 500-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program at Yoga Yoga in Austin, Texas. He began practicing yoga regularly in 2003 as a way to relieve stress and cultivate wellness and has taught Hatha Yoga since 2007. He discovered iRest Yoga Nidra when Richard Miller came to Austin for a week-long Level 1 Training in 2009. Since then, John has attended several other iRest trainings and retreats and continues to be amazed at the profound depth of the practice and the ancient teachings that support it. He enjoys sharing iRest with groups and individuals and is particularly interested in finding ways to weave the practice of iRest into daily life. He also holds a master's degree from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and has worked in Texas health and human services for more than 25 years, focusing on programs and projects related to children's health policy, strategic planning, Medicaid, and healthcare quality.
