Derek Cook

I have always worked with my hands as my tools, I've been a carpenter, an artist a musician and a sculptor, with a desire to be of service to those around, to help and to teach - long before I knew my path as a healer. I came into my body late in life, discovering my love of movement and the physical after a childhood of health problems and weight issues, with physical ailments playing a large part in my formation. After years of misunderstanding and mistreating my body I discovered yoga, and began down the path of healing. Yoga and bodywork revealed a badly hidden obsession with the body, how it works and how to work with it; the study of anatomy became my passion. I'm excited and honored to be able to share it with students. I love working in a way that offers detailed and sophisticated information in an easily digestible and interesting package. Im truly committed to creating an environment where anyone with a desire to learn and a resolve to show up can find their own way to what they desire.
