I would like to share a great method that I have been blessed to discover 5 years ago through my meeting with James D’Silva and I haven’t looked back since I feel that finally I had found a complete way to stay healthy and prevent injury.
James has succeeded where many have failed. He managed to blend the principals of Yoga, Pilates and Dance into one practice.
The Garuda Method:
In Indian mythology, the Garuda is a sacred mythical bird that changes shape according to its function. It’s a fitting name for this 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 routines and exercises are limitless and work every area of your body. The classes are designed to be challenging and fun. Since the syllabus is so broad in scope the routines range from beginner/elementary to advanced/professional. All of the exercises are systematically devised to bring your mind back into exercise while making your body the leanest, strongest and most flexible it has ever been.
The Garuda Apparatus:
What’s particularly amazing about the Garuda apparatus is that it uses a single piece of apparatus. Traditional exercise machines are very restricted in what they can do, so James worked closely with engineers to create a single exercise device with almost limitless possibilities. The result is the Garuda apparatus.
With its large split platform, chair attachment, increased range of movement within the framework and adjustability of the pulleys, ropes, bars and straps, it takes exercise, body conditioning and rehabilitation to a new level.
Garuda is perfect for all ages and abilities. Even better, because it offers a new and improved way to work on specific muscle groups, it’s ideal for a rehabilitation programme or sports-specific training.
After a few month of mat and apparatus Garuda practice, I decided to take the teacher training course because I really felt that with my knowledge and understanding of the body plus James approach to movement, It would really help me with diagnosing and helping my patients on the long term.
I then got even more involved in teaching the theory being the practice during the teaching training courses.
I really feel that Garuda has changed my approach to exercise and I strongly feel that we should work at spreading the word because I’m positive it will play a very big part in the future of intelligent exercising.
