A Washington State local, Derek loves his PNW activities; all kinds of biking, mountaineering, hiking, skiing, sailing and summertime sun ray beam soaking. If it’s something outdoor, active, and slightly off the beaten path, he’ll be in. Yoga became one of those activities 10 years ago. Furthermore, yoga became the center piece of them all. It didn’t happen all at once, and at first, it didn’t even happen consciously. In fact, it was an over the course of 7 years that Derek fully realize that Yoga was his intuitive choice to bring balance to his physical body. It was after this full realization that He dove straight in; workshops, teacher trainings, retreats, and self-study. Of course, this expanded his physical practice, which in its self, was worth the price of admission. However, it the introduction of the mental and spiritual side that truly changed his life.
