Scott Simons calls himself an ecopreneur, meaning he puts people, purpose and the planet before profit. As an ecopreneur for over 10 years spanning many facets of the global health industry, Scott’s mission is to inspire people to take health into their own hands.
With the help of his leadership, three social businesses have come to see the light of day. In 2004, he cofounded the Padua Centre, a community centre offering meditation, yoga and group dialogues. In 2006 he cofounded DESTA, a non-profit organization helping marginalized youth aged 18 to 25. He also founded Organik, a company he has been managing and developing over the last 10 years, which specializes in servicing health to employees and corporate environments.
Beyond creating and developing inspiring projects, Scott has contributed to health as a yoga teacher since 2009. He completed the Sivananda yoga 200-hour certification (2009), the 500-hour Naada Yoga teacher training (2015) and is currently taking the 300-hour yoga therapeutics program with Re:Source Yoga Therapy-Thérapie.
According to Scott, his greatest source of inspiration is found in his daily practice of health.
