India Yoga Retreat

It is claimed that learned warriors could disable or kill their opponents by merely striking the correct marmam (vital point). This is taught only to the most promising and level-headed persons to discourage misuse of the technique. Marmashastram stresses on the knowledge of marmam and is also used for marma treatment (marmachikitsa). This system of marma treatment comes under Siddha vaidhyam, attributed to the sage Agastya and his disciples.

Program

Critics of kalarippayattu have pointed out that the application of marmam techniques against neutral outsiders has not always produced verifiable results. As a result of learning about the human body, Indian martial artists became knowledgeable in the field of traditional medicine and massage. Kalaripayattu teachers often provide massages (uzhichil) with medicinal oils to their students in order to increase their physical flexibility or to treat muscle injuries encountered during practice.

Such massages are generally termed thirumal and the unique massage given to increase flexibility is known as katcha thirumal. It is said to be as sophisticated as the uzhichil treatment of Ayurveda. Kalaripayattu has borrowed extensively from Ayurveda and equally lends to it. This is a 30-day program with yoga, meditation, and Kalari Marma (vital points) massage. The program is available all year, perfectly designed 30 days stay in a single air-conditioned room.

You will take part in daily morning yoga, meditation sessions, and herbal drinks, daily evening Kalari practice (training), 12 Kalari Marma massage, one Kerala kathakali live performance, one Bharatanatyam dance (Indian classical dance) live program, one Backwater island tour with a small canoe boat, and one Cherai Beach (Vypin island) tour.
