The Kartharee adavu is a movement that begins with a jump, followed by the crossing of the legs. The name could come from the hasta that is used or from the fact that the legs cross.
The Last kartharee adavu uses a big jump to land with the legs crossed.
The arms move in a complete mandala, circular motion as the jump happens. Pay specific attention to the way the arms and torso move and coordinate.
Things to keep in mind:
- Make sure the shoulder is down in the arm that crosses the body. Pull it back into the shoulder socket to keep the alignment
- Foot is in kunchitam as it crosses.
- Make sure the arm makes a full circle
- Practise the horse jumps and the horse jumps with turns from the alignment series before doing this Adavu.
