TriYoga now in South Africa

April 20, 2012

In May this year the founder of the yoga method TriYoga®, Kali Ray, (Kaliji), will be coming to South Africa to hold a weekend TriYoga workshop which includes Yogaflow® and Prana Vidya. This will be her first visit to the continent. TriYoga is taught in 38 countries with 34 TriYoga Centers and over 900 certified teachers. This form of yoga is fairly new to South Africa only coming into the yoga community in KZN 7 years ago.

Who is Kali Ray? Kali Ray is internationally renowned as a yogini and founder of TriYoga. Based on the intuitive knowledge that arises from meditative states, Kaliji has established a fully systematized hatha yoga method with seven levels of both TriYoga Flows and Prana Vidya, (the trinity of breathing practices, concentration techniques and meditation), and over 1000 hasta mudras, (hand gestures). She has devoted her life to sharing the ageless universal teachings. Kaliji’s presence, her mastery of the flow and the ageless wisdom inherent in the TriYoga teachings have inspired and transformed the lives of countless students throughout the world.

How did TriYoga begin? On January 5 1980, as Kali Ray led a group in meditation, she shared a concentration technique of energy rising up the spine. As soon as the meditation began, kriyavati siddhi spontaneously awakened within her. At that moment, students witnessed her spontaneous flow of asana, pranayama and mudra. This later was to become known as the birth of TriYoga. Moved by the powerful energy and beauty of these flows, students asked that she teach what they had witnessed. In this way, Kaliji began to teach TriYoga, which arose as did the ancient yoga, from the continuing flow of kriyavati. Kriyavati, as defined in Sanskrit texts, is kundalini manifesting on the plane of hatha yoga.

What are TriYoga Flows? TriYoga’s hatha yoga method, TriYoga Flows, integrates posture, breath and focus, that is asana, pranayama and mudra. The flowing sequences are characterized by wavelike spinal movements, rhythmic pacing and economy of motion and relaxation-in-action. With sustained awareness on all aspects of the practice the movement of body, breath and mudra harmonize and the inner flow of prana, (life energy), is experienced. The inspiration and guidance for the TriYoga Flows comes from yogini Kaliji’s direct experience of kriyavati. This inner prana flow has given the knowledge to develop the systematic and complete TriYoga method. The evolution of TriYoga Flows continues to be guided by kriyavati.
