200 Hrs Yoga TTC With Kalari Course

What is Kalari?

Kerala is a state known to hold its traditional culture very close at heart. Kalaripayattu is one such embodiment of the rich Indian heritage. It is a south-Indian martial art form originally from Kerala and which is still actively being practiced in South India. The martial art has a large influence from Ayurveda and yoga due to its understanding as a holistic teaching. Kalaripayattu does not only target body strengthening or training of fighting movements and defense forms, but is a doctrine for the whole body, mind and soul and thus for the human being in its entirety.

Originating in north Kerala as a martial art form It is considered to be one of the oldest surviving fighting systems still in existence in the world. Interestingly the earliest written evidence of this martial arts form can be found in Dhanurveda a part of Atharvaveda and Rig Veda and has developed into its present form by the 6th century.

Currently, it is receiving a lot of prominence particularly by those seeking to gain internal strength while developing their bodily strength and if your hearing about kalaripayattu for the first time one of the main reasons lay in the philosophy of the art itself. Most people turn to a martial arts form to learn to fight. But the teachers of kalaripayattu emphasize restraint and meditation. The knowledge is meant only for fitness and treatment. There are very few occasions — to defend the helpless — when one is encouraged to use this art against someone. The art is a means to understand how weak the body is. It is also a way to keep fit and rejuvenate your body. The more dangerous techniques are often not taught to students. A martial art masquerading as a rejuvenation technique can only have so many takers. Kalaripayattu also involves detachment from the world, which is quite challenging to attain. It is a form of exercise with a spiritual dimension,  emanating from concentration and self-discipline and employes great muscular coordination.
