Eduardo Saldanha CEO of the DeROSE Method São Sebastião

Wandering through a bookstore, he found a book by the writer DeRose that touched him deeply, by seriousness and approach.

He began practicing in 2002 driven by this book. At the time it was just like any activity, but it soon turned into more than expected.

He began to use the Method as an integral development tool, which produced in him a whole series of results, both in terms of energy and self-knowledge. Through this process, he realized the vocation to teach this art. And so he did.

In all these years he has had the honor of working with some of the best professionals in our field, and having much more contact with the writer and philosopher DeRose, which has been a real lever and at the same time a privilege of which he is eternally grateful.

Touches him especially the maxim "Change the World, start for yourself," because our way is the way of example.

He graduated in Finance and Master of Economics with a postgraduate degree in Project Management of Investment.
He worked for several years in the financial area and as Controller in the companies, IFADAP (now IFAP), STEF-TFE, Neocell, PLMJ.
In the Military Institute of Army Pupils was member and dynamizer of the Special Class of Gymnastics, ex-libris of the Institute.
He currently serves as CEO at DeROSE Method São Sebastião.


The DeRose Method is a course? How does it work?

a) The DeRose Method consists of cultural activities like theoretical classes, practical workshops, parties, dinners, video showings, events, festivals, weekend outings, trips, all aimed at transmitting our Culture through camaraderie and living by example.

b) On the other hand, we have regular classes for beginners and advanced students. These regular classes teach respiratory re-education, stress management, organic body techniques that improve muscle tone and flexibility, and procedures that enhance emotional relaxation and mental concentration.


Who is it for?

Our Method is designed for young adults; nevertheless, this does not mean that those who are older can't practice. It is sufficient to be in good shape and in good health.


Is it associated with any religion or sport? Or, that has nothing to do with it?

No, that has nothing to do with it.


Do people need to sign-up for a membership?

We have plans with varying class frequencies at our Cultural Spaces. Upon enrolling, the practitioner chooses a monthly plan and can participate in numerous cultural activities and regular weekly classes according to the plan chosen, ranging from once per week to everyday.
