Cheryl Cohen of Trend Setter Real Estate shared what’s coming to 55 Murray: A DeRose Method studio with classes on yoga, nutrition, and more. The movement/brand, with locations worldwide, was founded by one Professor DeRose (no last name). That’s him above. A Soho location is listed on the U.K. website, but the phone number “isn’t accepting calls at this time.” Wait, here’s a website for DeRose Method Soho—with a studio in the Flatiron? A nice man answered the phone listed there, and he said the Soho/Flatiron location isn’t moving; the Tribeca location is a new one opened by “a colleague.”
UPDATE: I just heard from Fabio Martins, owner of DeRose Method Tribeca. He said this is a more accurate portrayal of what’s coming to 55 Murray:
The DeRose Method is a combination of techniques and concepts which helps individuals reach their peak performance in their work, in their studies, in their sports and their lives.
The DeRose Method is an international network with schools in Paris, London, Roma, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Lisboa, Porto, Rio, São Paulo and now in New York City. The network was founded by Professor DeRose and their are specialized in premium lifestyle consulting which teaches its practitioners how to reach their highest performance, to live in a less complicated way even how this could lead to achieving self fulfilment.
The school is scheduled to hold an opening event on the 2nd of January.
The DeRose Method sounds all-encompassing focusing on:
• greater quality of life
• good relationships
• good nutrition
• respiratory re-education
• stress management
• organic body techniques
• muscle tone
• concentration and meditation
• a final goal of self-awareness.
Benefits? No! These are consequences of a lifestyle proposed and taught to thousands around the world by the DeRose Method. If you want to learn more you can visit the website of their sister school in the Flat Iron area: www.deroseflatiron.org
UPDATE #2: Fabio is concerned that the initial text from the UK DeRose site is misleading. Here’s his explanation:
