Trained as a dancer and gymnast in Montana, Scott Picard understood the intrinsic wisdom and power of the physical body from a very early age. As he moved into his twenties and made his way out into the world, he abandoned these practices entirely.
It wasn’t until he met his teacher, Dominique Sire, that he was able to reengage to this meaningful way of life and truly appreciate the profound wisdom the body holds. Working with Dominique he saw his life and relationships transform in ways he could never have imagined. After over a decade of studying, Scott took the next natural step and began teaching.
Scott’s passion for this work of using the body and movement to gather insight into the myriad complexities of the human condition, allowed him to discover and expand his relationship to the earth, others and himself. Using these principles he is able to access the humanity we each hold. Acting as a compassionate guide, he leads women and men of all ages and backgrounds to find a deeper connection to their own lives, to others, and to the world around them.
The inclusive power of Scott’s work welcomes people from all diverse walks of life. From teachers to CEO’s, actors to artists, Scott works with individuals, couples, groups and companies worldwide.
