Scoop Slyman

Scoop grew up moving back and forth across the United States and always playing sports. He took an interest in yoga at a young age because he heard professional athletes use it to stay healthy and prevent injuries, but had little time to practice because of his demanding athletic and academic schedule.  After completing the University of Hawaii’s Master’s program in Kinesiology, yoga very naturally found its way into his life and has been a part of it ever since. Being an athlete, he was first drawn to the physical aspect, the movement and asanas, working to be stronger and limber, but there was something unique that came with a yoga practice that was different then how he had previously trained...mindfulness. What is going on in your mind as your body moves? This was such a new method of training from the sports world of “Ignore it and keep going,” and “No pain no gain!” 

Scoop has since immersed himself into yoga exploring every avenue there is to expand his practice, learning to deeper connect with himself and others. It has lead him to become a Power Yoga and AcroYoga Level 2 teacher and Thai massage practitioner. My practice has brought him around the globe to Europe, Asia, North and South America to teach, train and learn from some amazing yoga, handstand, acrobatics, and body work teachers, each one having amazing gems of knowledge they share, which have worked their way into my unique approach and style of teaching.  He is always ecstatic to share what he has learned, but even more excited to connect with and learn from everyone he meets.
