Scott Petrie

Inspired by Toronto’s diverse yoga community, he has helped develop greater dialogue between practitioners through roundtable debates, festivals, symposiums, ethics committees, outreach and community service programs. As director of Yoga Community Toronto (a non-profit, volunteer-run, organization designed to facilitate community projects and interactivity), the Yoga Festival Toronto (an annual three-day, non-profit, local conference), and The Acorn Fund (a yoga community fund that offers annual grants to socially-engaged, local, yoga projects that serve the greater community outside of studio culture).  Scott teaches the Yoga Philosophy component of the Program. In 2010, he co-authored Yoga 2.0 with Matthew Remski, an exploration of the evolution of yoga in modern culture.
