Derek has always been sporty even as a young child. Back in the days when there were numerous big and unmanicured fields in Singapore, he has great memories of constantly running around or playing in them.
He became an avid Pilates and Yoga practitioner to help keep mind body and soul together as a foil to the rather fast paced creative agency career he had for over 20 years.
At the start of 2016, he decided to take his Pilates Practice a big step forward by taking up a teacher training course and have not looked back since. Derek conducts a Classical Form of Pilates Classes, helping all his clients to understand the intentions of each of the exercises, finesse and ultimately conquer them.
Why do you like teaching?
People often take health and fitness for granted. It’s an indescribable feeling when you’ve been a big contributor to someone’s journey to attain an improved level of both. It’s different every time and just as enthralling every time!
