Dylan Scott was born and raised outside of Philadelphia and completed his B.S. in Exercise Science and Sports Psychology at Ithaca College in 2015. He discovered mindfulness during his time at college in response to a difficult battle with panic attacks. Although there were many resources that helped Dylan through his struggles, mindfulness offered him a unique tool that above all else empowered him to learn to work with panic and anxiety. Upon graduating from Ithaca and moved by his gratitude for mindfulness practice Dylan sought out opportunities to deepen his practice in Philadelphia. This led him to complete classes at Penn and Jefferson University and go on several silent retreats before receiving teacher training at Jefferson and subsequently completing Koru teacher training in October 2018.
Dylan currently resides in Philadelphia and is a contracted mindfulness teacher with the Myrna Brind Center for Mindfulness at Jefferson. He offers the Koru curriculum to medical students and house staff through the counseling center at Jefferson. Dylan also serves as Koru’s Social Media Manager crafting content for their Instagram and Facebook pages. When outside of the classroom teaching mindfulness Dylan feeds his passion for music, producing music under the moniker LTMR and developing his own freelance music production business.
