Instruction in English
Kalaripayattu—also known as Kalari—is an ancient form of marital arts originating in South India, drawing inspiration from the power of tigers, lions, and elephants and once used by warriors in Kerala. Today, Kalari has lost its combat nature and is used as a form of self-expression through dance. Come spend a week in tropical Fort Kochi, Kerala in southern India as you explore this ancient and beautiful practice and the associated massage known as marama, which is used to increase physical flexibility. Deepen your yoga practice with daily asanas, meditation, and pranayama, coupled with daily Kalari practice and marama massage. Nourish your body with simple, healthy yogic meals as you experience some of the traditional practices of Kerala.

After a yogic vegetarian lunch, you will go for a marma/kalari massage followed by kalari practice. Take some time for yourself in the afternoon to rest and reflect.
