WHY KALARI ONLINE?

Are you interested in learning kalarippayattu but there is no school in your neighbourhood (town or even country?) or you’re stuck at home due to Covid19? Or maybe there are other reasons you don’t join offline classes. 

Although teaching kalari online seemed an unusual idea also to us, it actually turned out to be a great option to many students all over the world who cannot participate regularly in offline trainings. For them kalari has become so important and valuable that they don’t want to substitute it with anything other form of movement. 

Some of our students met us during workshops, while some discovered us only online. No matter which group you belong to – our online classes are open to everyone no matter of prior experience.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

I approach Kalari Studio to train rhythm, balance, frustration, concentration, and of course Kalarippayattu. But after my first month of practice, even though I trained all that, I discover a way to connect my body to my mind, all the time. A special connection that conducts me into a special state of being. That's why I can't miss a lesson.

Kalari online - of course, it is not the kalari that we do in a large space, in a group, under the guidance of Justyna and Shankar. However, it is a very good base of exercises that prepare for training which we do every day in the hall. Exercises strengthen and stretch the body, prepare for the next stages of training. Everything is explained in great detail by Justyna, so new people are able to understand how to do exercises, and those who exercise longer have the opportunity to correct a position or repeat a fundamental element. The possibility of daily online training gives the feeling that despite everything changes, kalari is always there, we are, we train, develop and we continue to do it together!

I can't think of a better way to start the day than a kalari training, it gives so much energy and strength! I am really thankful to Studio Kalari for the online courses; now I have the opportunity to study kalari from my home in Finland. I have been practicing every day for a few weeks and can already see the results. I gained strength and flexibility, I improved my ability to focus and my breathing, and I learned a lot about this fantastic martial art.
I enjoy that I can watch the video when it suits me, although I do miss the contact with other people. There is a great variety of exercises and the regular repetition makes it easier to learn, as well as the precise and complete explanations of our instructor Justyna. I also love that we can do the exercises at our own rhythm, within our own limits. The trainings are as challenging as we want them to be, and that's great!

I'm really enthusiastic about kalari practice. I start every morning sleepy but at the end of a training I'm tired but full of energy! I enjoy it so much that I already involved into regular trainings two of my friends, and I hope to find more!

WHO  IS THE TRAINING LEADER?

The online kalari classes are led by Justyna Rodzińska-Nair:

“I have been learning the Southern Style of kalarippayattu since 2004 with different masters, both in India and in Poland. Since 2008 I follow Sankar Lal Sivasankaran Nair.

I lead trainings and workshops, as well as manage organisation of events and communication of Studio Kalari.

Although initially I was sceptical about teaching kalari online, I started such classes in March due to the pandemy, and it turned out a great experience for many people who suddenly got access to this wonderful art.

In kalari practice, I enjoy intense workout combined with control, determination and flow of energy, and such trainings I propose to my online students.

In private life, I’m wife of Sankar and mom of Maja, Leon and Mira. I recharge my batteries swimming in a lake and reading books.”
