    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.

    This is an extremely rare practice in the Boston area, and space is limited in our Central Square studio, so reservations are required. Click here to reserve a place!

    Our Central Square studio is at 763 Massachusetts Avenue, just a couple blocks from the Central Square T stop as you walk toward City Hall, the Post Office, and Harvard. Our entrance is the big pair of double doors just to the right of the Life Alive restaurant. Buzz 7 on the intercom (to the left of the doors) to ring up for entry. We’re on the second floor.

    We start opening our doors ten minutes before class so that you can get in a little early if you need to change, use the bathrooms, etc. before class. (But please don’t buzz more than 10 minutes early, or you might interrupt the last few minutes of someone else’s class.)

    If it’s your first time at the studio, you should know that we already have mats for you (for free), so there’s no need to bring one of your own. Just show up in comfy clothes, and you’ll be good to go. (A water bottle is also a good idea.)
