DT 044: The Simple Life with Yancy Scot Schwartz

Yancy Scot Schwartz took his first yoga class in the Dominican Republic while on a skate tour. Yancy currently resides and teaches yoga in Los Angeles, California. He believes that through the yoga practices and techniques, we can free ourselves from the constraints of the body and the mind. Yancy is trying to lead a simple life.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Yancy on:

  • How yoga has provided Yancy a healthy counterbalance to the physical strain of skateboarding and skate culture
  • Surrendering to and seizing opportunity — from hiding in the back of class to receiving free teacher training to being hand selected to open a new studio
  • What constitutes a simple life, and the benefits to be gained from living one
