Derek Gill, DO-MTP, Certified Advanced Rolfer®, LMT
Derek is a graduate of the Osteopathic College of Ontario, the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute®, and The Florida State University (B.S.). He is an active member of the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI), and currently serves on the IASI Education Committee. He is also the founder of Global SI™, an IASI-approved SI school whose primary focus is to spread the work in developing countries. He has taught in India, The Philippines, and the US. In 2019, he graduated a group of 17 Physical Therapists who became the first-ever IASI-qualified Structural Integrators in India.
Prior to manual therapy, he was a Fortune 500 Corporate Consultant who specialized in Process Reengineering and Systems Integration. After receiving his first Structural Integration 10-Series in 2003, his life began to shift in dramatic ways. As part of his own healing journey he has taken deep dives into psychotherapy, yoga, Advaita Vedanta based Self-inquiry, indigenous medicine ceremonies, and various body centered healing and movement modalities. As a practitioner, he discovered that there were profound effects when manual therapy and inner Self-inquiry techniques were used together. He now enjoys training other practitioners to use this model and facilitate transformation with their hands, heart, and presence.
