NEW: March & April EXTRA OPEN CLASSES: “Kalari Amsterdam”

with Djahan Manuela Mazhari Perez

Date: each Monday & Friday in March and April
Time: 10:00 -12:00
Price: Regular class price & Huppass 
Studio: HJS at Chassé Dance Studios

The Kalarippayattu body/mind training is very complete.It is an ancient beautiful art form, a self-defense method, and a healing system as well.

Different animal poses are very deep, low, and yet combined with dynamic high kicks and jumps. You meet your limits and learn to play with them. Repetition is a key element, instinct too. You learn through repetition and observation.
Awakening and awareness through your whole being open your perceptions to the space and people around you. That is the ideal state of the warrior, but also of a performer.
