Our Teachers


Preston & Christen began their yoga journey together after taking their first Baptiste Power Vinyasa class in 2003 when they were on vacation in Rhode Island. They then started practicing Baptiste Power Yoga in the Washington, DC area, where they were living. After a few years of practicing yoga, Preston started teaching yoga in 2006, and Christen in 2008. They have been living in South Florida since September 2011 and got married in July 2012.

DSC08792_prestonPreston Scott, ERYT-200, started yoga as a way to heal himself physically from years of bodybuilding and athletics. Through practicing, he also became aware of the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga. Because of his background in personal training and athletics, Preston teaches a physically-challenging and empowered practice. His fun attitude and great sense of humor offer ease and joy to his students. Preston’s deep sense of spirituality is also something he intertwines into his classes. His love and joy for life are felt throughout his classes. Preston has had years of training in teaching power vinyasa yoga at Down Dog Yoga in Washington, D.C., and with some of the top teachers in the country, including Baron Baptiste.  He is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (ERYT-200).  Aside from teaching, Preston leads workshops, and assists teacher trainings throughout the country.
DSC08817-2_christenChristen Scott, ERYT-500, came to yoga for the emotional and mental benefits of the practice. With a doctorate in clinical psychology and having worked in the mental health field for over 15 years, Christen had explored many treatments for her clients’ and her own emotional issues, both traditional and non-traditional. After taking her first yoga class, she experienced a peace of mind that she did not know was possible. Christen has seen more personal transformation on the yoga mat than in the therapy office. Christen’s classes offer a physically challenging practice in an environment of acceptance and love. She believes that everyone is limitless and perfect just as they are. Her classes will empower you to let go of your thoughts and embrace your natural perfection. Christen is a 500 Level Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (ERYT-500) and a Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher. She is the creator of The Yoga Shrink (www.theyogashrink.com) which addresses mental health issues within the context of yoga philosophy.

The-Power-Yoga-Tribe---KimKimberly Wyss Kimberly has been practicing yoga off and on for twelve years. Five years ago when her practice became more consistent, she became much more aware of the impact yoga has on the body and mind. During a challenging time in her life, she came across The Power Yoga Tribe and immediately felt at home. Preston and Christen Scott have been her yoga mentors throughout her journey. As a way to afford unlimited yoga and be more involved in the community, Kimberly started doing work exchange at PYT. She became a Certified Teacher’s Assistant in the spring of 2015, and started assisting a couple classes a week. She is currently in the process of completing her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification at PYT. Kimberly has noted that one of the biggest lessons yoga has taught her is how to experience ease. When she started to find ease on the mat, ease began to show up in her life and in her relationships. Kimberly’s classes incorporate strength and ease as she guides her students to let go of expectations and judgements and just be.
