What is the primary focus and purpose of Yoga By Kalari?
It represents a unique fusion of traditional yoga principles with a strong focus on managing chronic health conditions and addressing occupational health challenges, all with the intention of promoting both physical and mental well-being.
What is the inspiration behind the name ‘Yoga by Kalari’ and how does it relate to your mission of providing physical and mental wellbeing?
Our founder has roots in Kerala, the birthplace of the ancient martial art, Kalaripayattu. “Yoga by Kalari” draws its inspiration from the name of this tradition.
The driving force behind Yoga by Kalari lies in our aspiration to offer individuals a holistic wellness experience. We recognize the profound advantages of yoga, which emphasizes mindfulness, inner peace, and overall health. Our practice remains committed to upholding these core principles while introducing a fresh perspective through the inclusion of movement and body awareness.
What sets Yoga by Kalari apart? Tell us about your current program.
At Yoga by Kalari, our distinctive approach to yoga emphasizes its therapeutic benefits that extend well beyond physical postures or asanas. Currently, we are in the process of crafting personalized yoga programs tailored to the specific needs of school staff, with a central focus on addressing the self-care challenges they face within the demands of their profession. Through this platform, our goal is to cater to the unique requirements of our users by providing individually tailored programs. Our virtual programs make yoga practice easily accessible and affordable to a wider audience.
What does a typical Yoga by Kalari session include?
A typical Yoga by Kalari session encompasses a holistic approach that includes centering, warm-up exercises, and postures designed to address prevalent health challenges stemming from the workplace. We incorporate ergonomic principles to tackle posture issues, striving to create a sustainable practice that addresses the root causes. Our teachings extend beyond the mat, offering practical techniques for integration into daily life. This includes specific breathing exercises that can help reduce anxiety, and stress, and enhance alertness for both the mind and body when needed. Our sessions adopt a gentle and non-strenuous approach to yoga practice, ensuring inclusivity for individuals of all ages and abilities.
Have you done any studies to understand the efficacy of the program?
Recently, we conducted a Clinical Trial on Yoga for Diabetes Management and witnessed remarkable improvements in the health conditions of our participants. Based on the positive outcomes of the trial, we initiated an affordable Diabetes Management Program in collaboration with a Michigan-based Endocrinology Clinic.
What is your vision for the future in the broader health space?
In the future, we plan to broaden our presence within the holistic health space, as the scope of yoga is all-encompassing. Our overarching vision is to bring the traditional practice of yoga to the masses as a complementary solution to the rising prevalence of chronic health conditions worldwide.
