For the fourth 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.
GARUDA MATWORK – class 1 09:30–10:45 We start the day with basic Garuda technique and exercises on the mat. An elastic sensation with soft openings for the body in 3D that develop your flexibility and focus. A good start to the rest of the day. James also talks about how he developed his method combining yoga, pilates and dance to be a more intelligent and intuitive way to exercise the body.
GARUDA DHARA – class 2 11:00-12:15 Garuda Dhara is a variation of the standing matwork exercises using chairs. The movements gives you another focus and you can find your weak links in the movement chain in an interesting way. A class that centers you and gives you a depth in the technique.
LUNCH 12:15–13:45 Time for rest and re charge. ”Healthy lunch” in the hotel restaurant on the ground floor.
GARUDA – class 3 13:45–15:00 After lunch James gives a class with slow flowing movements where different spirals from the arms and legs gives your body a new experience. James will give you a deeper understanding for the twisting movements that aligns the body.
GARUDA BOOST – class 4 15:15–16:30 Standing and seated series with focus on power and joint mobility where everything comes together in dynamic sequences. Big and small, quick and slow, the contrasts gives you energy and variation. James also shares his thoughts about the fascial system and how it affects us.
