Derek Cook

Derek is an experienced bodyworker, yoga teacher and internet ordainer reverend preaching the gospel of the human form. His study has led him deep down the path of not only asana and movement, but of the physical mechanics and philosophical intricacies of the human experience. As an anatomy teacher and bodyworker Derek has honed his understanding of the form and function of the human body, both in the laboratory setting alongside world renowned fascia expert and anatomical explorer Dr. Gil Hedley, and through working with countless moving bodies of all sorts. Derek has developed a passion for sharing the beauty of the physical form and helping others to see how through understanding we have the power to heal within our grasp.

You can find Derek teaching from his cabin in the DC Metro, offering intelligent functional movement focused vinyasa classes, or his special blend of self myofascial release in asana he calls Holy Roller.
