    Hii Anjali !!! Thanks for this wonderful website … i have started learning bharatnatyam from it. how much time is ideally required to practice each adavu step .
    i am finding some difficulties in practicing these adavus at fast speed . can you please suggest something to overcome this.
    it would be great if you can post videos of these at fast sollukettu. viewers can practice with these videos .

    Hello Amrita,
    Thanks. Glad to know you are able to practice. You need to practice until it becomes your second nature. For fast speed try giving counts like 1,2,3,12 etc depending upon the bols. So while the bols are said you try saying the equivalent numbers. I donot know if the videos in third speed would be effective since they are not easily understood. yet I shall try posting one.

    Namaste Anjali,

    Your website provides excellent quality instruction and explanations with the accompanying audios and I am able to rehearse from USA until I return in Chennai. I really love your website and have recommended it to some of my yoga students!
