ONLINE KALARI PRACTICE IS POSSIBLE
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 classes in person.
Although teaching kalari online seemed an unusual idea also to us (you can read an article on our blog where pros and cons are discussed), it actually turned out to be a great option to many students all over the world who cannot participate regularly in trainings in person. For them kalari has become so important that they don’t want to substitute it with any 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 ARE ELEMENTS OF ONLINE KALARI CLASSES?
Through various salutations we express respect to masters, other students, opponents, weapons and space in which we practise. They remind us the time and space of practice is special.
Conditioning and stretching exercises of full body that develop strength, balance, body awareness, focus and coordination. From simple to more complex, they are adjusted to possibilities of students.
The postures carry energetic essence of animals ready to enter into confrontation. They develop stamina and patience.
Sequences include defensive and offensive movements. They develop body memory and coordination, as well as enable controlled and focused flow of energy.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
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!
PARTICIPANTS OF ONLINE TRAININGS IN ACTION
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.”
