Kalaripayattu experience with Aravind Divakaran

About the experience

Kalaripayattu is a wonderful way to explore oneself and be in touch with the self and surroundings, as well as to increase one’s strength, flexibility, cardiac health as well as emotional peace. An ancient martial art form from Kerala with roots in meditation, well-being and healing, Kalaripayattu includes a predetermined series of graceful, yet powerful movements and body postures in a ritualized sequence. 

About the host

Hi! I am Aravind Divakaran, I am a professional body kinetic artist. I have put my body and mind under Kalaripayattu and Yoga training since the age of 16. I was guided by one of the greatest Gurukuls of India Mr EP Vasudevan Gurukul, who is a specialist in northern style of Kalaripayattu.

I am currently training under his beloved son Dr. EP Shaji Vasudeva Gurukul. I have also undergone training under Valappil Karunan Gurukul, who is a specialist in Pillathanghi, also known as Kaikuthippayattu, a northern style of kalaripaytttu.

With years of practice, I understood not only about the body and mind, but also about the existence of soul. In the beginning of the training, I had only focused on my body, but as years passed on, and with regular practice I had found a way to attain a state of trance in kalaripayattu movements. I then started practising the sequence of kalaripayatu not only in the perspective of a warrior but also in the perspective of an artist.
