DeRose Method combines techniques and concepts that develop better overall human performance and more quality of life. The practice takes the practitioner far beyond the initial benefits of health, strength, flexibility, balance and body-awareness towards the greater goals of expanded consciousness and self-knowledge.

 

Some of our techniques are:

  • Breathing exercises to oxygenate and energize;

  • Organic cleansing techniques to stimulate the internal organs;

  • Physical positions for strength and flexibility,

  • relaxation and stress management exercises to absorb all these effects

 

Experience how DeRose Method can improve your life:

  • Train your mind

  • Maximize your performance

  • Cope with pressure and manage your stress

  • Perform at your best

  • Become the best versions of yourself.

“I am an un-athletic 40 year old with three kids under 6, a very busy business life and a penchant for enjoying the finer things in life. Like most other City people time and stress are a constant battle. Despite trying to stay aerobically fit since my 20’s, up until I started DeRose 2 years ago I had suffered from on and off chronic low back pain for years, even marrying a Chiropractor to try and get rid of it! Sonia and Gustavo have genuinely revolutionized the way I think about my body, my breathing and their work has hugely increased my flexibility (not that most of my fellow students can tell watching me in Class). I have never done so little actual aerobic exercise but I have never felt better. Best of all I almost never suffer from low back pain. If you are only going to do one form of exercise do DeRose.” Rory H.

"The DeRose School in South Kensington is a truly extraordinary place. The atmosphere amongst students is warm, relaxed and friendly and above all the staff are professional, genuinely interested in you as an individual, and unquestionably experts in every aspect of the technique. I feel really fortunate to have discovered the DeRose School. I am an absolute beginner and I am encouraged and challenged by every class. If for no other reason you should enrol for a week’s trial just to get the recipe for their chai! Seriously, I can’t recommend it highly enough." Malcolm C.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What will I gain by practising DeRose Method?

You will feel good since your very first class. Each practise aims to increase consciousness and self-awareness. The practise routine results in more strength, power, flexibility, balance, movement coordination, breathing re-education, concentration, relaxation and stress management. Anyway, if you are practicing, it is because you like it and feel good doing it. 

2. I am a totally beginner. Can I still practise DeRose Method?

Beginners classes are designed for… beginners! Starting something new is always a little bit of a challenge. Teachers are here to teach, help and lift you. Each class is unique, featuring a selection of more than 2000 DeRose Method exercises.

3. I never heard about the DeRose Method. Would that be the best for me?

Without any prejudice, DeRose Method should be practiced by those who are willing to change and evolve. You don't have to be in an excellent physical condition, but you should be healthy. If you have some kind of health problem speak with one of our instructors. In some cases, even if we wanted to help, it wouldn’t be within our training or competence as only doctors have the technical qualification to treat.

4. Which habits do I need to change in order to start practicing DeRose Method?

First of all, let’s make it clear: none! But, yes, it is true that many people associate this fantastic philosophy of life with a lot of fanatical and radical lifestyle options, which make life hard for those who wish to make serious work of it!

The class is suitable for people of all physical fitness levels. Guests with medical conditions should check with the instructor on arrival.

"Finally! - a form of exercise that suits me and, believe me, I've tried so many! The Method has been life changing. If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you, and DeRose does that every time. The SouthKen teachers are inspirational, generous and encouraging. Without fail, I feel energised, relaxed, stronger and, most importantly, happier after each class. I'm hooked!!" Katie M.

 

"With DeRose you will remember the flexibility you had when you were at school, discover lean muscles in places you never imagined that existed in your body, drink the most delicious chai tea, and most importantly, make friends with some of the most positive, kind people, you will find in London." Jorge P.

 

"I went initially for only a trial week after being recommended by a friend whilst visiting Buenos Aires. I’ve decided to stay on as every doubt in my mind was evaporated. The Management at DeRose London are a joyful delight and run the school with meticulous creative eyes from the pristine contemporary interiors to most importantly the classes. The teaching is very personal and the teachers thoroughly understand what is best for your body type through their evident experience. DeRose is very dynamic and amongst several benefits it ignites the natural rhythm in the body that is often blocked away. You are sure to find it challenging (of course) coupled with becoming accustom to the simplistic way of wellbeing. Enjoy!" Elaine

First the challenge then the chai!" Caty R.

 

"After searching for the perfect method for many years, one day I came across The DeRose Method on the internet and instantly it fascinated me. After now practicing for 4 months I manage to get into to posture which I haven't been close to before. The DeRose Method just doesn't teach posture it does as well contain, breathing exercises, meditation, visualization. I eat less, sleep less and feel more focused in general. The classes are always fun and challenging and as the classes normally have have between 4 to 10 students you receive more attention. Gustavo and Sonia are always there to correct you if you are falling out of your posture. What more can I say The Rose Method is tip top standard, Many thanks for finding the way to London" Ted S.

 

"I have been practicing at the DeRose Method for over 2 years, the experience has been wonderful. The school counts with welcoming and professional instructors that make practicing the Method a pleasure. After every class I feel full of energy and ready to take on any challenges and stay positive throughout the short winter days. I would greatly recommend the method. Give it a try, its worth it!" Andrea A.
