Garuda Foundations Matwork is the root of the Garuda Method. Mat develops the foundational movements using your own body weight to create stability and flexibility. Twists, curls and spirals encourage greater flexibility in the spine, giving free rein to the body to rediscover its natural desire to move, and providing a complete, joyful and mindful workout. The key principals throughout the Garuda method are acquired and developed on the Mat. Enjoy the freedom of movement again.
