What Our Members Are Saying...

Adam Stone Asset Manager at BNY Mellon 

It started off being mainly a physical practice that built core strength, it developed into a mindful practice that is developing a core strength of mind and fostering an emotional balance in daily life. Physically it has increased my core strength and stability that has helped improve my performance as a triathlete. It has become the cornerstone of my meditative practice stilling my mind and help me get in touch with my intuition when dealing with life. The ability to quiet my mind & look beyond surface emotions helps avoid reactivity. Enjoy being around likeminded people focused on the good in the world and achieving an amazing quality of life.

What the DeROSE Method brought me was more focus and the ability to be more critical, rather than emotional, about what was happening in the race car. It was great to sit at my cockpit after our work and see the results of emotional management. I feel that I owe part of my 2013 title to the DeROSE Method.

At the moment, training with mister Ric is a way of stopping time and space, slowing down the pace of my life and concentrate on the best tool I have to make things happen in my life, my mind and my body. Through the application of the method I can start controlling my outer and inner me and therefore developing a strong shell that makes me feel capable of achieving any goal in life.

My father always told me that you are a sum of those you surround yourself with. Ever since I began training with Ric, my focus, discipline and energy has increased substantially this has allowed me to start my business with more ease and clarity. I thank him and the methodology for help me achieving one of the biggest goals of my life, I become an entrepreneur and I own a science company.
