Scott Hobbs has been practicing and teaching Iyengar yoga for over 35 years. In 1984, he founded the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles and was one of the first group of Americans to be certified as an Iyengar Yoga teacher. Iyengar Yoga, one of the world's most widely-practiced forms, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina--balance and flexibility--and a new sense of well being. He is fortunate to have studied yoga with B.K.S. Iyengar and his children Geeta and Prashant. Currently he teaches at YogaWorks throughout the Los Angeles area. Scott's classes not only feature his many years of expertise but a healthy dose of humor as well. He is a long time vegetarian and vegan, actively involved in the animal rights movement. Scott is also the Director of the Cameron Parsons Foundation established in 2006 for the purpose of bringing attention to and conserving the artwork and the writings of the late artist Cameron and her first husband, the late scientist and writer Jack Parsons.
