Meet Angus Knott

Angus Knott, Warrior Flow School

1- In less than a minute, tell us who you are and why we keep hearing good things about you.

My name is Angus, and I am a Yoga Teacher originally from the Highlands of Scotland, now living in Melbourne, Australia. I bring a gentle approach to yoga, challenging some of the traditional narratives by offering a more person-centered, compassionate teaching style.

2- What inspired you, if any, to join the Warrior Flow 200-Hour Yoga Training’s faculty? 

From the moment I heard about Warrior Flow, I knew I had to be part of it! The ethos and community-centered values resonate deeply with my own personal Dharma. It felt like a natural progression to join the faculty and share my knowledge.

3- In simple words, what does yoga mean to you?

To me, yoga means the union of kindness and compassion, not only towards ourselves but also towards everything around us.

4- What is the main difference between learning yoga now and when you took your first yoga training?

The main difference is the introduction and growing recognition of Trauma-Informed practices as a vital part of a teacher's knowledge. I believe it should be a pre-req on every training.

5- In your opinion, why is this a key moment in time to learn yoga? 

Throughout history, yoga has been a vehicle for supporting ourselves and our communities. In these challenging times, creating a sanctuary for ourselves is incredibly special and necessary.

6- Who would you be without yoga? 

Wow! What a question! Before yoga, I was a stressed-out, overworked hairdresser living off coffee, alcohol, and take-out. Without yoga, I would likely still be on that unhealthy path. It wouldn't be a good place.

7- Who were your role models? And what pushed you to learn and become who you are today?

My biggest role model was my Grandpa. He and my Dad taught me to be proud of who I am, a lesson that becomes more poignant as I get older.

I am driven by the recognition that I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to learn. It's a privilege I never take for granted.

8- What were the pivotal roadblocks and challenges you encountered along the way that helped you define your path?

I’m having a roadblock in answering this one!

9- What can we all do right now to make this world a better place?

Start small within our communities, practicing kindness and compassion. The ripple effect of these actions is endless. Changing the entire world feels overwhelming, but we have the power to make significant waves from small ripples.
