In this session we will introduce the first 3 Southern Empty Hands Forms, including the Salutation form. Native to the Southern Kerala practitioners of Kalarippayattu, these forms are now utilized to find peace and stability in times of stress. These standing sequences include turns, blocks, and kicks where we metaphorically eliminate obstacles that block our path through life. Kalaripayattu is known as Kalari in the West. It is an ancient martial and healing art that originated in Southern India thousands of years ago and has influences from the Druvidains and Aryans. There are references of Kalari (referred as martial techniques) in the ancient text The Vedas, the Mahabharata and Ramayana. The history of Kalari is of mythology, secrets, exploitation and experience passed through the generations. It is amazing that the art is still alive today given its difficult history. Being that Kalari is both a martial and a healing art, a practitioner or viewer has multiple paths to follow. We (Kalari Movement) choose to follow and teach the health and wellness aspects of Kalari. The art is life practice of preservation, to preserve ones-self and the life of others.

This is an on the land experience. Participants will travel with instructor, andell Rock Meet in lobby for shuttle.
