200 EYT Yoga Alliance, owner of NWA Hot Yoga & founder of NWA Yoga School – registered Yoga Alliance Yoga School
It is not often that a professional biography is actually a story of personal transformation. It is often a tale of promotion and ladder climbing that culminates in extravagant corporate achievement–but that is just the middle of my story. My name is Scott Pitts, and I’d like to welcome you to a different kind of bio.
I am the owner of NWA Hot Yoga, and I teach my own brand of inclusive and accessible classes. Located proudly in Bentonville, Arkansas.
My studio invites people and bodies of
all kinds to discover their own potential for transformation. I welcome
newcomers with two entry level ‘Yoga 101’ classes per week, as well as seasoned
practitioners who could never find a home at their past studios. I create a safe
space for the Misfits of Yoga, following the spirit of my advocacy for equality
in LGBT communities.
relaxed entry requirements, I consider this position an honor and I take it
quite seriously, as shown by the studio’s ‘Best of the Best’ award granted only
two years into our practice. I started with a Bachelor of Science Degree from
Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and I have worked as a Marketing
Director at Coca-Cola and Sony Studios. In 2014 I founded Scott Pitts
Consulting, which is dedicated to sharing my success with young start-up
companies. My experience as a corporate executive and a successful entrepreneur
prepared me for the job I have loved most, operating NWA Hot Yoga. It was four
years ago that I transitioned from corporate success to personal wellness.
During this time
I was guided by many dedicated professionals, and thanks to Hot Vinyasa Flow
yoga inspired by Baron Baptiste, I shed 70 pounds and became determined to use
my experience to help anyone who still struggled through the practice of Yoga.
My studio is a space of transformations, from Misfit to the right fit, from
practitioner to teacher, and from community to family.
I have planned 5
Olympic Games, 4 Olympic Torch Relays, 3 FIFA World Cups, a Papal Visit to Australia,
World Youth Day for the Vatican, and I have worked in The White House. My
travels have seen 69 Countries.
I am happy to
represent 4 generations of family from NWA, and to remain rooted in my
community. I spend my extra time with my family of origin Brenda, Lisa, Mom,
and a very large extended family of cousins. I have served on multiple
non-profit boards over the past 20-years and I love producing the signature Yoga For Charity event once per
quarter benefiting local charities.

Scott began a journey of transformation and became invested in personal
guidance of dedicated professionals, Scott shed 70 pounds and developed a
passion for athletic transformation. He is a certified spin/indoor cycle
