Scott Murphy

Scott’s yoga studies began in September 1991, when he was seeking a more holistic approach to ending medical issues. His early years were spent under the study of Myna Moon, a long-time follower of Swami Sivananda and Mahavatar Babaji. As his practice increased over the decades, his medical symptoms diminished. He earned his 200 hour yoga teacher training and later both a 500 hour and a 1,000 Master Teacher Training from Namah Shivaya in Dallas and recognized as a Yoga Acharya.

Of the three paths to realization, Karma Yoga has been a central part of Scott’s life for more than two decades, as he has served in varying roles and responsibilities for several North Texas animal, health and religious organizations, including 14 years as a religious education instructor. He continues to bring accessible and affordable yoga to the Mesquite and Terrell communities and also teaches for the City of Mesquite, Texas, weaving into his classes the philosophical, scientific and spiritual aspects of a yoga practice. Scott continues his yoga studies, and has making a 3 ½-year commitment to the study of Kriya Yoga with Pramahansa Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship. When he’s not teaching yoga, Scott fights heart disease and stroke for the American Heart Association.
