Kalari Martial Yoga Workshops
A Martial Yoga Experience - 2 hour Workshops
Our 2 hour immersive workshops combine Kalaripayattu Indian Martial Arts and traditional Hatha Yoga. They are a Martial Yoga experience.
Kalaripayattu (Kalari) is India's ancient martial, meditational & medicinal tradition that evolved alongside Yoga & Ayurveda. 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.
Kalari Martial Yoga is a unique approach to improving your health and wellbeing. We will be incorporating meditation, pranayama, Kalari movement forms and Hatha Yoga asanas into a traditional yet dynamic practice. You will take away a home practice that you will be able to work on in your own time (and until the next workshop in 3-4 weeks).
Kalari asanas and forms are multidimensional, incorporating concepts of power and focus, and allow us to feel a closer connection to our ancestral animal and warrior lineages.
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.
Who is this for: Adult/children (above 7 years) beginners and all levels of fitness and flexibility and particularly suited for:
- Martial Artists
