We pride ourselves on our training courses and over the years we have produced some very fine teachers. The academy is all about cultivating intelligent individuals and promoting our students to move away from the traditional formulaic approach.

Our discipline borrows from different philosophies and, physically demanding and rigorous as these practices are, we call upon them as being mindful and spiritual too.

We embrace innovation and are constantly evolving. This is one of our strengths. Besides giving our students a firm education in the physical arts, we are always challenging them to think outside the box. Garuda training is a metamorphic process which involves a lot of self – practice and perseverance.

Our training courses range from short courses to intensive training programmes. All these are certified to a high level and are recognised by the Pilates Method Alliance for Continuing Education Credits.

After registration to the Garuda teacher training subscription from our shop, we will give you 1-month free access to the corresponding online video to your training. We will also give you access to our resources section where we provide marketing materials to help you promote your Garuda classes & access to list your studio/classes on our website. A review of your certification within a 2 year period is required to continue your access.

Our teachers are very much part of the Garuda family and we take pride in nurturing them along the way.

The Garuda method is both Mat & Apparatus based. We begin our teacher training with the Foundation Matwork, progressing to Seated & Standing Matwork and Seated & Standing Advanced. The Apparatus training begins with Foundation A & B, progressing on the Series 1 and Series 2.

We also offer courses in Garuda Foundation Barre, Barre Advanced, Garuda Foam Roller, Garuda Brick, Garuda Sling, and Garuda Chair, which can be taken in any order and at any time. No prior Garuda training is required.
