Tatta Adavu – Third Step

August 8th, 2007 by Anjali

I hope you have read the previous posts on Tatta Adavu which describes the First and Second steps for this adavu. We can again refer to the animation for the third step for a better understanding.

Note that from the third step onwards the Bols are “Tai ya tai hi tai tai tam”. The third step is similar to the first two and as you may have guessed it, you would tap each feet thrice on each side. The detailed steps are below (please note the changes in Bols below):

  1. Stay in the Ardhamandal (Half seated posture). Place your Palms on the waist with the inside of the palm facing outside.
  2. Lift your right leg towards the inner thigh and tap the floor with flat feet (say “tai ya”). Once the right leg is grounded, lift the same (right) leg and then tap the floor with flat feet (say “tai hi”). Again lift the same leg (right) leg and then tap the floor with flat feet (say “tai tai tam”)
  3. After the third tap of the right leg, lift your left leg in a similar fashion and then tap the floor with flat feet (say “tai ya”). Once the Left leg is grounded, again lift the same (left) leg and tap the floor with flat feet (say “tai hi”). Again lift the same (left) leg and tap the floor with flat feet (say “tai tai tam”).

Combine the third step into your practice routine. I shall post the details of next 3 steps soon.
