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.
