Our Founder

Scott Anderson


In 2008 long-time Yogi and yoga instructor, past owner/founder of Mound Street Yoga studio, and current Kinesiology PhD student.

In 2012, the Center for Healthy Minds, under the direction of Dr. Richard Davidson, partnered with Scott and YogAutism to research the effects of its 6-week program. The goal of the research project was to understand more about the biology of the benefits reported by those who have taken part in YogAutism classes. The promising results of this study are currently in press.

Scott is currently a PhD student at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in the field of Kinesiology. His research interests include yoga interventions for those on the autism spectrum. Scott serves on YogAutism's Advisory Council.
