I’m a beginner. How do I start?
What is the difference between Garuda, Pilates and Yoga?
What is the difference between a Level 1 and a Level 2 class? (both Mat & Apparatus)
Level 1 will move a bit slower and take the time to explain exercises so each client knows how to execute the movement in a safe manner. Clients are challenged by working on the fundamental exercises in a deep and connected manner.
Level 2 class is tailored to the more experienced student. Students will continue to work on Level 1 exercises while more advanced exercises will be introduced and integrated. Students are expected to know Level 1 exercises and are challenged by a class that flows. The client must be injury free and able to do Level 2 classes.
