Derek Waddy

Down Dog Yoga

Yoga became a part of Derek’s life after a football teammate recommended a yoga class. At first he was reluctant to do so because of his preconceived thoughts about yoga. After further thought, and some convincing from his former teammate, he decided to give yoga a shot. And it has been a great experience.

"The physical workout far exceeded my expectations, and as I grew in my practice I noticed I began to change how I thought and handled things off of the mat," Derek says.

He began his yoga journey at Sid Yoga in Towson, Maryland, and is excited to be apart of the Down Dog Yoga community. Through his teaching Derek wants to give students the feeling that there are no limits to where they can go on the mat, in hopes that they walk in that same way in their everyday life.

He is a graduate of Towson University where he majored in Mass Communications with a minor in Business Communications. Derek is also a former Towson athlete and played wide receiver for the Towson University football team.

"When I am not in the studio, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family," says Derek, who looks forward to seeing everyone on the mat!
