Lengthen, strengthen and create space in the body.
Garuda takes its name from an Indian mythological sacred bird that can change shape according to its function. It has inspired an intelligent and intuitive way to exercise the body. By combining the calming stability of yoga, the core strength and focus of pilates and the balletic grace of dance, the Garuda method, developed by James D'Silva, is the answer to many people’s quest for a stronger, more flexible, toned body. It has all the benefits of a robust cardiovascular workout, as you learn to connect your breath with your movement.
Through a variety of exercises on the floor, you’ll learn to control your body through precise stretches and actions, placing an emphasis on smooth, seamless movements without any stress on joints. Through routines carefully choreographed, you’ll soon develop greater poise and control, and a leaner, more resilient body!
Please dress in comfortable clothes to move in, and bring a yoga mat.
