Why yoga: Yoga is a vehicle that I use to make a impact on the lives of others and share the impact it has had on my life.
How I live my practice: I live my practice with enthusiasm and passion!
Where I am most challenged by my practice: I am challenged by my temptation to take the route of least resistance instead of the route that may be choppy but will lead to my greatest growth.
The one thing I can’t live without: Breathing 🙂
The book I keep on my bed side table: Journey to the heart
How I have fun off my mat: I love to attend sporting events and spend time with family and friends.
What I know for sure: Everyday is a new opportunity.
What I am committed to: I commit to uplift, encourage, and empower others to live courageously.
What I share in my teaching: Derek shares his enthusiasm and love for yoga through a sweaty, challenging, fun, asana practice. Derek encourages others to step forward through challenges and into growth.
