Paraval Adavu 1
Playlist 34 • 3m 21s
Paraval literally means to spread. Some schools of thought also call the Paraval adavu, the 'Pakkadavu' as it moves to the side while sliding. Some others change the name based on the way the foot articulates with the floor. A few of the types of Paraval, can be referred to as Marditam adavau, as it uses the kicking movement of the foot. For simplicity we will refer to the entire series as Paraval. The Raadha Kalpa method introduces and practices over 8 types of Paraval adavus. There will be two basic types introduced in the first set of adavus.
Like the Pakkadavus, the feet articulation define the varieties. The arms are largely interchangeable.
Please pay attention to the feet in the first two varieties.
- Keep the shoulders down when the arms rise up.
- Make sure your arms stretch completely when they lift above the head.
- Extend your arm completely when stretching to the side.
