Scott grew up in Jenkintown, where he trained in classical and contemporary dance at the Metropolitan Ballet Academy. He was blessed with the opportunity to attend the renowned Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, earning his BFA. Scott has performed at Jacob's Pillow with MADboots, and for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines as a dancer and aerialist, as well as with distinguished dance theater company BodyVox in Portland, OR. His yoga journey began in his final year at NYU, when he suffered incapacitating back spasms and bouts of depression. Since studying in depth vinyasa with Tara-Marie Perri at NYU Tisch, and a certification in ashtanga-based vinyasa from Dhyana Yoga in Center City Philadelphia, Scott has been dreaming and scheming of ways to integrate the perfectly harmonious realms of knowledge he has been given by mentors and teachers of many disciplines, including many styles of dance and yoga, spiritual practices like mantra and meditation, as well as the illuminating philosophical and psychological studies rooted in Vedic tradition and eastern and western philosophy as well as ancient wisdom of healers from indigenous peoples all over. He is extremely passionate about yoga and meditation, always curious to know more to be able to put it into practice in a transformative and empowering way. He is ecstatic to be moving and grooving with the Buddha Bar tribe!

Julian Edwards gained an appreciation and passion for health and fitness early in his life. His career in Track and Field began when he was just nine-years-old. It was through his competitive running – more specifically, sprinting – that Julian learned how dedication, hard work, and a healthy lifestyle were necessary ingredients to performance. As a youth, he ran for three different community club teams where he found success on a national level at the Junior Olympics. In high school he found himself ranked 2nd in the state for the 400 meter dash and 1st place in the Philadelphia Catholic League for the 100, 200, 400, and 4x400 meters. These successes earned Julian a scholarship to Mount Saint Mary’s University where he continued to pursue his love of running at the Division 1 level while pursuing a degree in Business. After college, Julian returned to Bishop McDevitt High School to coach his former team. He spent two years as an assistant coach before being promoted to Head Coach of the Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field teams. Wanting to ensure his athletes’ maximum performance and safety, Julian chose to further his education at The National Personal Training Institute. It was here that he mastered his ability to strengthen the human body, prevent and rehabilitate injuries, and guarantee success. Additionally, the program prepared him for his National Academy of Sports Medicine Certification.
