Byron Bay - Kalaripayattu: India's Martial Yoga
Time & Location
About The Event
Practice the oldest indigenous martial art form
Kalaripayattu (Kalari) is India's ancient indigenous martial, meditational & medicinal tradition that evolved alongside Yoga & Ayurveda that originates from Kerala in South India. It is a complete system of body-oriented therapy with an emphasis on the expansion & development of the senses, a paradigm commonly called 'when the body becomes all eyes'. Kalari gives us a framework for understanding how we exist in the world and practical guidelines to harmonize ourselves with our ever changing inner and outer environments.
Kalaripayattu martial arts training involves warm up and flexibility exercises, strength and stamina training, step work, traditional forms and sequences as well as unarmed and armed combat techniques. It is ideal for building and maintaining general fitness and is particularly suited for yogi's, athletes, martial artists, actors, dancers and movement practitioners from all walks of life and ages (over 7 years old).
We will also be including aspects of Kalari Martial Yoga presenting a unique approach to improving your health and wellbeing. Yogic based practices such as meditation, pranayama, and asanas will be incorporated into a traditional yet dynamic practice.
You will take away movement practices that you will be able to work on in your own time (and until the next workshop!). It will be a great way to develop more flexibility, calm and focus the mind, improve your fitness and core strength, and develop your sense of inner wellbeing.
