Scott first began to explore spontaneous laughter more than 10 years ago at Yogaville-Satchidananda Ashram in the beautiful Virginia mountains. He loved the way long periods of laughter made him feel; the energizing and open feeling that the laughter created and the reflection and healing that occurred in the stillness and quiet that followed. Over time, and with greater experience, he discovered that some physical warm up helped to support easing into the laughing experience, and a guided relaxation after the quiet and stillness, brought increased grounding and integration. He has been teaching Laughing Meditation since then, and is a Yoga teacher in Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and Durham North Carolina.
He is a student of Taoism and Tibetan Buddhism, as well as Indian style of yoga. His teaching reflects the eclectic mix of his background, using what works, with encouragement, compassion, and especially humor to help each student to uncover and move closer to their truth and the peace and acceptance that eventually comes.
