Garuda Apparatus




Frustrated by having to use a variety of machines for Pilates? Looking to develop new techniques, James D’Silva created a single versatile, multi-functional device: the Garuda Apparatus. What’s particularly amazing about the Garuda apparatus is that it uses a single space saving piece of apparatus.

Traditional exercise machines are very restricted in what they can do, so James worked closely with engineers to create a single hybrid exercise device with almost limitless possibilities. With its large split platform, chair attachment, increased range of movement within the framework and adjustability of the pulleys, ropes, stability sling, bars and straps, it takes exercise, body conditioning and rehabilitation to a another level.

Exercises continuously flow from one to the other as the Garuda apparatus becomes your workout playground, effortlessly integrating different attributes of the equipment.

Garuda is perfect for all ages and abilities. What’s more, because it offers a new and improved way to work on specific muscle groups, it’s ideal for a rehabilitation programme or sports-specific training.
