recipient_richard_scott_hsRichard Scott was born in Columbus, Ohio and lived there for the first 12 years of his life before moving to Jupiter, Florida. Richard has always been a deep and free thinker and a very optimistic person who loves uplifting the people around him and keeping the peace by holding everyones best interests in his heart. Kindness and compassion are a couple of his great strengths. He moved to South Beach on his 18th birthday where he was inspired to begin producing music to uplift and inspire others.

In 2009 Richard went skydiving and was instantly hooked on the freedom and fun of it. With about 80 jumps under his belt he says that “Looking back now, I realize that I loved skydiving so much because it brought me to the present moment and helped me to clear my mind just like yoga.”

In 2012 everything changed when Richard quit his corporate job, moved to Fort Lauderdale and got a job as a DJ. Talk about raising vibrations! Through all of these changes he learned meditation and found peace through mindfulness and present moment awareness. Then in 2013 he discovered Yoga and it really took him to the next level! “Yoga helps me stay balanced physically, mentally and emotionally and It helps me to be more present in my body.”

Richard is excited about teaching yoga and being able to pay it forward, one yogi at a time!!!  He is ecstatic to share his life experiences with as many people as possible, all around the world.
