Derya Anderson – Ambassador
Derya moved to Durango from Boulder, Colorado in January of 2021 to enjoy all the beauty and activities that this special town has to offer. Derya loves to spend time outdoors with her husband and their two fur babies, Hazel and Rufus.
Derya began working as a physical therapist in a busy clinic and now owns her own small practice, Essential Physical Therapy. Derya started her own clinic because she wanted to incorporate a whole body, whole person approach and to spend more time with her patients.
Derya is dedicated to contributing to her community and to her own continued growth and learning. She loves connecting with people and believes in educating her community on better health through better movement. Derya also teaches restorative yoga, which she loves to share with others and see the changes and benefits they gain from the practice.
