Meditation Training

An enhanced ability to focus is essential for a successful life, on every level, physical, emotional and intellectual, or area, professional, social, or with the family. The Meditation Training aims at developing this skill. With the duration of 30 minutes, the sessions explore the diversity of meditation techniques that the DeRose Method provides. 52 different exercises are experimented, enabling the students to find which are the most favourable for their own practice and life purposes.

Circle of Visualization

Circle of visualization is a very traditional practice where ancient techniques are used to empower the energy of the group through breathing exercises, vocalizations of ultra-sounds and pleasant visualizations. This practice is considered a very important event in which we get together to execute not only the techniques, but also to empower the social aspect of learning enjoying each other’s company. We also use this activity for the students to graduate to higher degrees. The most important objective of this enjoyable practice is to create archetypes of what we desire to achieve, our personal aims in our lives

Ancient Physical Techniques

In the first stage, the physical positions develop body awareness, motor coordination, and the elasticity of the tissues, articular flexibility and muscle tone. With regular practice you will learn how to keep the positions stable, comfortable and aesthetic: the breathing must be conscious, deep and rhythmic, while you localize your consciousness, focus and maintain a deep feeling of intention and a strong sense of purpose.

Choreography, Conscious Movement

Develop your all encompassing skills of fluidity, improvisation, through the intuitive management of vital space, exploring one of the main characteristics of the DeRose Method, the choreographic sequences.

Theoretical Class

Theoretical classes are philosophical deep dives, embracing different subjects from our philosophy. We discuss and go deeper into many of the aspects which provide the foundation to the DeRose Method. To know more of our background, history and points of view as a philosophy can be instrumental in helping to comprehend practice with more pleasure.
