The Method, first coded during the 1960s by the Brazilian-born educator and writer Professor DeRose, synchronises an ancient practice of eight parts with a philosophy of life that underlines good nutrition, cultural awareness and ethics. The results are enhanced body awareness; excellent physical condition; improved stress management, sleep and concentration;
Students at the school follow a programme of breathing re-education, physical positions that flow into others in a choreographed sequence, stretching and relaxation exercises. The DeRose culture is taught through example by instructors and students are encouraged to attend social events and workshops on etiquette, nutrition, history and eastern philosophy.
Prof. Gustavo Cardoso, Director of DeRose Method London, explains: “If you practice the DeRose Method with dedication it really is easy to change your lifestyle for the better. For example, with time and naturally, your body starts asking you for more juices, fruit, nuts and vegetables, without any effort to change anything at all. One by one you make new life choices because you feel different, more in control, full of energy and vitality."
Today, the DeRose Method network has over 300 schools across Europe, North America, Australia and South America. DeRose Method in the UK was set up by professionally trained DeRose Method instructors and is based in South Kensington, London.

Notes to Editors:
- Over the last 50 years, Professor DeRose has published more than 20 books on subjects as varied as: well-being, nourishment, behaviour, relationships, self-knowledge, as well as literary fiction.
- The DeRose Method is a combination of powerful techniques and concepts that help individuals lead a less complicated life. The techniques of this Method are grounded in the most ancient Yôga known to man - a highly integral, pre-classical Yôga which is at least 5000 years old. Its roots are sensory and naturalistic and its full name is SwáSthya Yôga.
- Although Yôga techniques are taught at the school, DeRose Method London was established to teach the DeRose Method, not Yôga.
