Online trainings

STUDIO KALARI ONLINE on Facebook

studio kalari onlineOnline kalarippayattu classes are a compromise between the traditional teaching system and the possibilities of modern technology. Although they started to function online mainly due to the pandemy and lockdowns, as there are still few kalarippayattu schools in the world, they have become the only way for many people to experience training in this martial art.

From March 2020 to June 2022, I conducted more than 300 trainings in the form of live streaming in a Facebook group. I also recorded 20 tutorials explaining the different exercises and sequences. Most of the classes are adapted to a small home space, but there are also some done in a larger room. All recordings can still be used.

WHAT ARE ELEMENTS OF ONLINE KALARI CLASSES?

Salutations

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.

Animal postures

The postures carry energetic essence of animals ready to enter into confrontation. They develop stamina and patience.

Sequences
of movements

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 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!

Although there is nothing like having face to face training, Studio Kalari takes online teaching and learning to an outstanding level which is the perfect solution for international students like myself who want to study with world-class teachers. A HUGE thank you from the UK!

PARTICIPANTS OF ONLINE TRAININGS IN ACTION

WHO  IS THE TRAINING LEADER?

Justyna Rodzinska-Nair kalari onlineMy name is 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. I write a blog on kalari and I wrote a book which will be published in autumn 2022.

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 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.
