Garuda Inspiration Day in Gothenburg, March 2015

For the third consecutive year, James D’Silva visits Gothenburg to give classes in his own training approach, Garuda, which focuses on variation, flexibility and precision in every movement.

WHEN: Sunday 15th March 2015, 09:30–16:30

GARUDA FOUNDATION 09:30–10:45  We start the day with basic Garuda technique and exercises on the mat. A relieving class with soft openings that develop your flexibility and focus. A good start to the rest of the day.

GARUDA SEATED/STANDING MATWORK 11:00–12:15 Standing and seated series focusing on strength, stability, balance and joint mobility.

LUNCH 12:15–13:45 Time for rest and recharge. ”Healthy lunch” in the hotel restaurant on the ground floor.

GARUDA DHARA 13:45–15:00 After lunch James gives a seated class, using chairs. Garuda Dhara is a simplification of the standing and seated matwork exercises, which center us and allow us to feel a sense of movement from the inside and out.

GARUDA WARRIOR FLOW 15:15–16:30  The day ends with an immersive class combining the exercises into longer flows, and recharging the whole body with new energy. Powerful and challenging sequences – a perfect way to end the day.
