Garuda inspires a more intuitive way to exercise the body and create greater ease of movement by incorporating movement from Pilates, Yoga and dance. It has all the benefits of a cardiovascular workout while stretching the mind and the body.

Garuda is a test of mental and physical strength, asking for focus and concentration during the exercises.


What is the Garuda Method?

In Indian Mythology, the GARUDA is a large bird that changes its shape according to its function. The Garuda Method is a hybrid practice that encompasses three philosophies:

1) Principles of Pilates
2) Breath work and asana practices of Yoga
3) Grace and athleticism of Dance & Martial Arts

What does a Garuda session consist of?

  • A series of creative movement patterns that are smooth and seamless
  • Exercises which work several areas of the body simultaneously
  • Routines which range from beginner/elementary to advanced
  • Movements that encompass flexibility, cardio and strength without straining the body

James D’Silva (Creator of Garuda) Philosophy:

“Garuda creates a sense of who you are, what you are capable of and most importantly provides the key to becoming who you want to be within your body”

“Life is a constant spiral. You always have to re-evaluate. But people tend to fall into a routine, the mind tricks you that you are doing alright. Change is very important to challenge yourself”

“Your workout should be a whole mind, body, spirit experience. What is your soul getting out of this? It’s all about making people aware that their movement has to be mindful, and bringing the awareness into people’s lives”
