What is Garuda? It’s the next stage in the evolution of body mechanics. Garuda takes everything we’ve learned from Pilates, incorporates more use of rotation and activates deeper muscles to bring your body back to a more youthful stage. The quote below, taken from James D’Silva describes the Garuda:

“In Indian mythology GARUDA is a large bird that changes its shape according to its function. Thus the name aptly describes our new exercise system, which is unique in its versatility, flexibility and precision of movement. Encompassing the principles of Pilates, the breath work and asana practices of yoga, the grace and athleticism of dance, Garuda is the face of 21st century fitness. Where Pilates ends Garuda begins. Holistic, organic, dynamic – Garuda is the hybrid that is revolutionizing our approach to fitness.”

Taylor`d Pilates is proud to be the first studio in Canada to own a Garuda machine. Since our introduction of Garuda, many of our existing clients have expressed excitement towards their Garuda sessions and a renewed excitement towards Pilates itself.
