Derek Fairfield

Derek Fairfield

“Derek and his steel guitar create an amazing soundscape that is perfect for a flow class. He moves between Indian and more blues-oriented sections creating a “Delta Raga” sound that is quite unique. He arranges his sections, including tempo/dynamics right to my class sequence beautifully. I have had several musicians in my classes, and it is often hit or miss. Since I teach a mindful slow-flow with a lot of alignments and philosophy weaved in, it is important that I am able to talk and demonstrate. Derek is very mindful and aware, modifying his music according to what is going on in class (i.e., if I am trying to explain subtle alignment principle or demo a pose, he would either play softer or stop the music altogether so students could hear). So it has been such a pleasure to have Derek in my class — a special gift to me and my students!” –Ai Kubo Yoga instructor at Yoga Tree Telegraph
