There are 4 main variations and several combinations under Theermana Adavu such as Samayathi, Gopuchhayathi, Shrothovahayathi, Mridanga yathi & Damaru yathi. The students learn to sing all Theermana Adavu in 3 different speeds set to a particular rhythmical pattern (Thala). Students are given a fitness guide explaining the Yogic postures relevant to the footwork. Then, the students learn the footwork under Footwork analysis section. Later, they will go through the body movement analysis and learn to co-ordinate the Hand gestures (Hastha Mudhra), Hands, Eyes, Head, Neck and Torso movements for each of the footwork. When once they learn the Adavu in its entirety, they practice it in different speeds. Audio downloads are provided to help the students in their practice.
Students are provided with high quality Step by Step learning videos by watching which they learn the lessons and present the same during one on one online class with the instructors to enhance their learning.
