The real deal

I had been practicing and teaching yoga for quite sometime when I decided to take a Budokon Yoga teacher training this past Fall. Derek was one of my instructors during that time, and also became a mentor as I navigated my way through this new and very challenging sequence. He has an amazing knowledge of anatomy and finds just the right words to cue this very dynamic practice. He is also not shy about sharing all of his knowledge in a way that is engaging and empowering. I also found that his teachings not only helped me change my physical practice, but I have also benefited greatly from his mentorship through the pillars of Budokon. A highly recommend taking a class with Sensei Derek - you will not be disappointed.

Great teacher!

I have been practicing with Sensei Derek for almost three years now. He is a knowledgable and experienced teacher who can guide you to a practice that will change your life and body. I lost over 20lbs working with him. I highly recommend any class he teaches cause I have taken many over the years and have never been disappointed. He is the real deal.
