Garuda Trainings & Workshops

Garuda is a holistic, organic approach to movement which concentrates on rhythm and flow. It has the clarity and mindfulness of Pilates as its core, the economy of form of Alexander Technique, the self-perception of Feldenkrais, the spirituality of yoga and the joy of dance.

All Garuda Training courses are recognized by the Pilates Method Alliance for Continuing Education Credits.

Garuda's repertoire is vast and concentrates on functionality, rejuvenation and healing. We have devised modules to take our participants, through different levels to create a sense of expertise and care.
