Thousands of years before the birth of P90X, the kalari training regimen evolved in South India as both a physical and mental conditioning practice for the warriors of Kerala. Described in Dhanur Vedic texts dating back to 3000 BC, kalari may be the oldest physical training regimen in human history. The kalari practices were banned by the British to discourage rebellion, but they were taught in secret in the villages of South India, and are now enjoying a resurgence in Indian action movies. Pradhuman’s Yoga for Athletes is based on this ancient yoga.
This class builds from gentle stretching to vigorous movement and will leave you feeling open and connected. Although originally developed for battlefield combat, it is a perfect training regimen for the modern athlete, and is especially recommended for professional dancers and gymnasts, as it helps boost and maintain flexibility.
No mats will be necessary.
