‘Garuda defines pilates for a new generation of 21st century fitness.’
– James D’Silva (creator of Garuda)
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.
Garuda’s results are striking: increased strength, flexibility, co-ordination and endurance, with a greater sense of ease and well-being. Garuda offers a cardiovascular workout while drawing deeply on mental focus, and teaching the sacred principle of relaxation within movement. The result is a stronger, leaner body, improved posture and true ease of movement and mind.
The Garuda employs a truly unique, new and revolutionary exercise apparatus. The Garuda combines the movement and versatility of the Reformer and the Cadillac with the precision of the Wunda Chair – providing a seemingly limitless range of exercise.
