Where pilates ends, Garuda begins. Garuda is a movement method devised by James D' Silva of the Garuda Studio in London. Garuda is the name of a mythical bird which can change its form according to its function. Garuda movement is organic and combines the core strength and focus of pilates with other influences such as yoga, tai chi and the grace of dance.
Through Garuda matwork you will learn to control your body through precise stretches and actions, placing an emphasis on smooth movements without any stress on joints.
The routines are carefully designed to develop greater poise and control, and a leaner, more resilient body. You should leave each session with a sense of accomplishment, as well as a deep feeling of serenity, mind-body connection and wellbeing.
