Jeff (J. Scott) began studying massage therapy, healing and bodywork techniques in 1995 and has been in private practice since early 1997.
In a safe, nurturing space, Jeff combines a compassionate heart, a playful spirit, and a deep connection to healing touch to create sessions which are nurturing, healing, and pleasurable.
In June of 2007, Jeff travelled to India to experience a one month intensive Yoga Teacher Training program in the Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga traditions. He successfully completed the program with First Class Distinctions, and now carries the title Certified Yoga Instructor. Following this one month experience in an Ashram setting, he set out to travel south India for an additional two weeks as part of a personal pilgrimage. During this 7 week period in India he discovered and began to integrate the power and intention of Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga as it relates to the Tantric path of Yoga.
In June of 2009, Jeff completed the 500 Hour Pranakriya Professional Level Yoga Teacher Certification program with Yoganand Michael Carroll. That process has deepened Jeff's personal practice and understanding of Hatha Yoga as a Tantric path of transformation and Self discovery.
In October of 2011, Jeff returned to the Ashram in India to attend a one Month intensive Yoga Therapy training program.
Additionally, Jeff was introduced to Shamanic Astrology it 2001, and has been formally studying Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology since 2008.
