An experiential and interactive program to deepen your practice of self awareness, or begin you a path of teaching the ancient wisdom of realization.

Yoga Teacher Training is one of the most fulfilling experiences of a lifetime. Whether your aim is to deepen your knowledge of the philosophy, root more firmly into your own practice, or begin a path of teaching, the ancient wisdom, knowledge and self-awareness gained are irreplaceable.

It is the beginning of a lifelong journey. It is a transformation of your inner and outer worlds. It awakens you to your life, and your ability to create it, in a profound way.

Our program is experiential and interactive. We will give you the skills you need to safely, confidently and compassionately guide yourself, and a variety of students should you choose to teach, through their own yoga practice.

We are honored to share this experience with you.

Scott Lawlor E-RYT 500 YACEP teaches traditional vinyasa yoga blended with healthy doses of humor and yogic philosophy.  His nontraditional, improvisational teaching style has earned him a dedicated following not only on his home turf on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, but also all along the East Coast and online.  Attention to the yogic lineage, Sanskrit and alignment are paramount, but so are levity and playfulness.  His classes are energetic, interactive and fun, the kind in which you laugh all the way through and cry at the end.  Scott calls it Honest Yoga. 

Known to everyone as Pickles, Scott received his 220-hour yoga teacher certification through the Amalam School of Yoga on the Outer Banks and his 300-hour certification through Alanna Kaivalya in New York City.  He has countless additional certifications and continuing education credits through Integral Yoga and other fellow teachers.

A native of the Jersey Shore, he has lived on the Outer Banks for 25 years, raising four wonderfully kind children, selling produce and contributing to the community in many ways.  He came to yoga later in life and is now all in, living the yoga lifestyle to the fullest and enthusiastically sharing what he has learned with others.


Scott Lawlor Yoga classes appeal to all levels of students, from beginners to lifelong practitioners, and he offers modifications for any student. He is the founder and co-owner of Kind Yoga on the Outer Banks, a wellness cooperative focused on hot and cool yoga classes, fitness, nutrition, meditation and healthy lifestyle.

Scott is the creator of Grateful Yoga, a combination of vinyasa flow and the music of the Grateful Dead. It's a popular offering for yoga on the Outer Banks, and Scott also takes Grateful Yoga on the road from D.C. to Asheville, N.C., and everywhere in between. He can be found teaching at Outer Banks Yoga in Kitty Hawk, at outdoor Yoga Jams and in many other studios locations all along the Outer Banks and online. His online offerings include Zoom, YouTube and Instagram classes and workshops.

Scott also offers private classes and workshops, including corporate events, continuing education for yoga teachers, bachelor and bachelorette parties and more.  Coming soon from Scott Lawlor Yoga will be online teacher trainings. 


Here at Kind Yoga we have served the Outer Banks community and visitors for 4.5 years, (formerly The Well) We are open year round and happy to provide a very eclectic and diversified pallet of yogic and wellness offerings, both hot and cool.  

The space has recently been renovated, remodeled and fitted with infrared heating system. As well as hepa-filters for your protection. It is centrally located in Kill Devil Hills, NC and provides ample parking in Seagate North Shopping Plaza. 

“I promise you that plumbing the depths of your being is an unparalleled adventure. I wish you well on this journey."

Love, Pickles
