Kalarippayattu is an ancient, Indian
martial art from the Southern region of Kerala that has cross pollinated over the centuries with yoga and Ayurveda,
as well as Kathakali, a traditional dance theater. The practice begins with
learning fluid and powerful forms, often taken from observation of animal
energies, in choreographed sequence. This prepares the practitioner in body and
mind to be “present in absence”, meaning complete readiness for anything that
arises in the moment.
THIS IS A POWERFUL TOOL FOR MODERN LIFE.
can be a powerful tool for modern life; to remain focused, relaxed and aware
within the cacophony of the everyday field. Kalarippayattu also fine tunes the senses to becoming more aware of what is happening around us. Some have called this practice - "When the body becomes all eyes". It is also an incomparable training
for actors and artists requiring physical and mental awareness, presence and
fluidity within their craft.
The techniques taught are some of the fundamentals of kalari: lohas
(warm up exercises), leg swings, meippayattu forms, Northern salutation
form, Southern salutation form, long stick Northern style.
