Garuda takes its name from an Indian mythological bird that can change shape according to its function, inspiring an intelligent and functional form of exercise. Garuda combines the breath work of yoga, the core strength and focus of pilates and the balletic grace of dance, culminating in a fluid and full-bodied workout for a stronger, more flexible, toned body.
Garuda Deep Stretch will incorporate Garuda yoga poses and deep breathing practices to open the body, release stress and address connective tissue tension. Stretches will be low to the floor and held for several minutes to allow the joints, ligaments, tendons and connective tissues to respond to gentle, sustained pressure. This form of deep stretching is a perfect compliment to more athletic forms of exercise such as dance, pilates and faster-paced versions of yoga. The class is designed for all levels and abilities. Take a deep breath and release!
