In Indian mythology, the Garuda is a sacred mythical bird that changes shape according to its function. It’s a fitting name for our new exercise system, which is unique in its versatility, flexibility and precision of movement. Developed by James D’Silva founder of the Garuda Pilates Studio and Clinic,London. Garuda combines the strength work of pilates, the breath work and asana practices of yoga and the grace of dance.The benefits of Garuda include increased strength, flexibly, coordination and endurance with a greater sense of ease and wellbeing.Garuda draws deeply on mental focus and teaching relaxation through movement.
