Movement and healing

Harness self awareness and vitality through breathwork and movement

We’ll start with exploring Mei Padam, an ancient Indian warrior art form which translates to ‘Body Lessons’ in Tamil. Breathwork is also key to this practice ~ simple techniques calm your nervous system and enliven your energetic body.

The beauty of this practice is in its simplicity. Absolutely anyone can do these movements.

And during the retreat you can witness Karalakatai ~ the advanced form of warrior art related to Mei Padam ~ being demonstrated. It’s incredibly powerful to see this in action.
