Thaila lepanam is the application of oil all over the body before the student begins the exercise regimen, and this is an integral part of Kalaripayattu training. Sesame oil is generally used for the purpose. Occasionally, however, certain other oils that are more conducive to the physical peculiarity of the student are also chosen. Application of oil imparts flexibility to the body, reduces obesity and gives strength to the muscles. Usually, the students do the oil application on their own.
