Foundation Matwork Courses

Holistic, Organic, Dynamic – Garuda is the hybrid that is revolutionizing our approach to exercise. Garuda Foundation Matwork is a Pilates-based system that builds gradually from the micro to the macro. Here movements start first by isolating individual muscles, then move on to the myofascial lines they belong to.

This course is the gateway to fully understanding the ethos & physiology of  Garuda, the Foundation Matwork is the cornerstone of our method & will allow the practitioner to move on to the more advanced Seated & Standing Courses.

How Does Hybrid Foundation Matwork Work?

Unlike our scheduled live courses, you will be sent a detailed professionally recorded course that you can complete at a time that suits you. This provides you with the opportunity to learn at your own pace, in your own time to suit your busy lifestyle.

Once you have completed the Garuda Foundation Matwork course independently, you will be able to attend a LIVE ZOOM Review Session hosted by James D’Silva in order to ask questions, share thoughts with peers and put what you have learnt into practice, under James’ watchful eye. If during the course you have questions we are here to support your learning experience & we would not expect you to wait until the review to ask, just get in touch & we can set up a zoom meeting to support your learning.

What You Get with Hybrid Garuda Foundation Matwork Course:

  • Professionally recorded sessions that cover the entire Garuda Foundation Matwork course
  • Resources to support your learning
  • Group review session with James D’Silva
  • Access to our teacher subscription.
