Free Garuda Matwork Open Class Tomorrow at the Lido!
There's a unique opportunity to experience a free open Garuda Matwork class at the Lido, from 10-11am in Studio 2, on Fri 24th Feb with movement specialist, Laura Guarnera. Bring along a Matwork voucher for the free offer. These you should be able to find in Lido reception.
Garuda is an interesting, relatively new relaxation and movement hybrid which is named after a large mythical bird or bird-like creature that appears in both Hindu and Buddhist mythology as a human or animal hybrid divinity, or deva. Garuda for its practitioners is a form of prayer and each class is an organic "journey" which takes pilates, dance and yoga into a varied and creative exercise which stresses rhythm, flow, relaxation and movement. Exercise aims to move from the simple to the complex and is nonjudgemental as it streamlines movement to each individual's potential.
Laura Guarnera has been exploring movement for over 30 years. She has a background in dance, pilates, gyrotonic, yoga, Franklin method, Body Mind Centering and Contact Improvisation.
