Hello Kaliji,

Please receive my heart felt grat­i­tude for being will­ing to open your­self to chan­nel the sys­tem of TriYoga. I had so many moments last week­end when the grace of Spirit swept my face with a smile as I expe­ri­enced a cog­ni­tive and sub­tle aware­ness of the sheer mag­ni­tude and beauty of this work. It is as pure and com­plete as Purusha or so it seems to me.

My Dear Mentor,

So glad to receive this qual­i­fi­ca­tion from you, my dear well-beloved Mentor.

Three years ago, just your lessons brought me into Yoga Life, it feels peace­ful, flow, also it changed my life, my mind completely .

Accord­ing TriYoga, I’m learn­ing delib­er­ate intent of “now”, observ­ing my body, my mind, my con­scious activ­ity …. It’s funny to find the truth inside my mind, I think.

So, you see, you changed me really. You point out the way how to live, how to love and how to find out the truth. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Happy New Year!

There are no words to express the feel­ing after being with KALIJI. There is only a big desire to share this feel­ing with others.

Jaya Guru Devi Datta,
Revered Kaliji,
Moments with you are earned moments of con­nec­tion to the divine. Truly, I must have done great good in my past to be blessed this way. I sat in your pres­ence and drank in the seren­ity of your aura and your abode, the grace and the bliss that per­vades all … if only you could see your apurva beauty and radi­ance, of how your inner and outer beauty become one … thank you for your time and the bless­ing of your embrace.

With pranams and deep­est respects,

Jaya Guru Devi Datta Kaliji,

My level 4 Prana Vidya prac­tice has been amaz­ing. I went back to the man­ual to review some of the sub­tleties involved in Bhas­trika and ended up read­ing a lot more. I was blown away by the depth of infor­ma­tion and wis­dom in the man­ual. This man­ual from Kaliji and the PV prac­tice is a beau­ti­ful gift. I feel blessed and grateful.

Thank you for pro­vid­ing me such an amaz­ing venue and crowd to play for.
I truly enjoyed being in your pres­ence and your inner light charged the energy all around me.
It would be great to play in your presence.

Dear­est Kaliji,

I had a chance to view the Devi dance from Mysore on July 25th for the first time yes­ter­day, and I was sim­ply blown away! What a beau­ti­ful, mov­ing med­i­ta­tion! I have never seen any Devi Dance like it, and find it so inspir­ing, cen­ter­ing, clear­ing. There is no other yogi I know who moves with such exquis­ite grace, pre­ci­sion, and flow of tim­ing from start to fin­ish. And this is just what is observable!

Thank you!

Dear­est Kaliji,
As soon as I heard your voice I began to laugh.
It’s the Devi laugh­ing, isn’t it? The bub­bling up of pure joy.

My Dear Friend Kaliji,

It is good to see your teach­ings and mes­sage has spread all over the world. May you con­tinue to flour­ish and ener­gize the field of Yoga for a very long time to come.

Lots of love from Keshav, I and the whole Batish family.

Thank you for a won­der­ful prac­tice Sun­day. I was so happy to be a total stu­dent and dive into the flows with aban­don. There were many moments when I felt I knew very lit­tle about TY –there was such an expe­ri­ence of depth and new­ness, I felt I was at the first step of pure won­der all over again.

A fel­low yoga teacher from Napa accom­pa­nied me.

After­ward, she asked me if I still learn after study­ing it with you so many years. She was sur­prised by my resound­ing “Yes.” Also, she was curi­ous as to how you “came up” with this style, ask­ing if you had books, DVD’s etc. She takes classes from many teach­ers, glean­ing nuggets here and there as she hones her own “style.” Our dis­cus­sion after­ward really got me think­ing about what we call “yoga” in this mod­ern era replete with charis­matic teach­ers and their ever-evolving styles. I hope you don’t mind if I share my thoughts with you….

The idea that there are all these styles of yoga and that TY is one of them I find inac­cu­rate. I explained to her how TY arose and shared my opin­ion that it isn’t really a “style” – rather it is pure yoga, that it is the per­fect inter­sec­tion of the core yogic prin­ci­ples –which must be expe­ri­enced to be under­stood. To call it a style is an oversimplification.

We had quite an inter­est­ing dis­cus­sion (as you might guess). To answer why I had stuck with TY all these years, I tried to explain to her that the nature of the TY flows depro­gram the dis­cor­dant life energy and repro­gram it with a sattvic cur­rent; that the expe­ri­ence is some­times intense on var­i­ous lev­els, but always expan­sive and trans­for­ma­tive. I added that it is because of this depth that our own true knowl­edge is awak­ened and that we con­stantly learn because this type of knowl­edge is inexhaustible.

Many thanks again,

with love,

Dear Kaliji,

Thank you again from my heart for the yoga you have brought into this world!
It is the most con­ducive spir­i­tual prac­tice I have come across on my journey.



Being in your pres­ence is a gift in itself.
I am never at a loss for words except when I am with you.

You are the only per­son in my life that I am con­tent
to just sit and lis­ten to what you have to say
with­out a need or desire to form a response.
I just absorb every word you speak.

New Orleans, LA

You are one of the most impor­tant fix­tures of light in my life. Over 18, com­ing on 19 years of know­ing you (this time around) you have been con­sis­tent, and beau­ti­ful and wise and pure.
This is the biggest trea­sure I have come to find so far and I am rev­er­ent in my gratitude.


I ben­e­fited so deeply from the time with you at Yogav­ille. I always leave a week­end with you feel­ing like I know I should feel all of the time. I believe it is the com­bi­na­tion of all of the yoga and your awe­some shak­ti­pat. One of the biggest ben­e­fits from mov­ing to Santa Cruz is how often I could spend time with you.

I am so grate­ful for all the bless­ings in life, espe­cially Kaliji and every­thing she does.

Caru, Novem­ber 2009

I just wanted to take a minute to thank Kaliji for all the help given to me. I will never be able to express with words what her visit in Octo­ber meant to me. I am so grate­ful for the time and the com­pas­sion I received.

Since her visit I trans­formed one of the rooms in my house into a yoga/meditation room…now I am never with­out the same com­fort that room brings me at the TriYoga cen­ter. I also get a lot of sup­port from the teach­ers there and I am now grate­ful to be back in Iowa and so close to that center.

I visit the web-site often and I can see by the arti­cles I have read I am one of the many peo­ple that have ben­e­fited from TriYoga and Kaliji’s lov­ing spirit. It has been a bless­ing to redis­cover TriYoga and it is a much deeper com­mit­ment for me now. I look for­ward to see­ing her again soon.


I have been with TriYoga for the past two years now and absolutely love it!
Being a pro­fes­sional surfer, it is a vital fac­tor for me to be as fit and flex­i­ble as pos­si­ble, and TriYoga has been my secret. Not only does TriYoga keep me flex­i­ble and injury free, it helps me to relax and stay focused on my surf­ing. I travel nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally to com­pete and I take what I learn in the yoga class with me where ever I go. TriYoga has been a vital key in me win­ning my title this year and I can’t thank them enough.

Kaliji … I’ve always had the most respect for gen­er­al­ists (as opposed to spe­cial­ist) … a per­son who has knowl­edge, apti­tudes and skills in a vari­ety of fields. And you, Kaliji, are my generalist’s idol, i.e. a renais­sance per­son … and, amaz­ingly, you are also the expert in many of the expand­ing fields.

Dear Yogini Kaliji,

It was an absolute bliss as well as plea­sure to hear you talk, see you per­form the MUDRAS and answer­ing ques­tions with amaz­ing ease, depth of under­stand­ing and knowl­edge of the sub­ject. I have never before been thus inspired when it came to the heal­ing pow­ers of Yoga

Dear­est Kaliji,

Thank you for enabling me to spend time with you.
As always I learn so much from both the way that you
inter­act with peo­ple and the knowl­edge that you so openly share.
I just absorb it all through every pore and cell.

Once again I feel truly blessed to finally have found you.
Not a day goes by when I don’t say prayers of thanks for hav­ing you in my life.
You are loved and adored.

JGD beloved Kaliji, Yoga Mataji

Thank You for all and beyond:-)

I was meant to travel this path with you. The more time with you, the deeper my com­mit­ment, the more expan­sive my heart, and the more con­nected I am within and with­out.

Dear Kaliji,

Prana­mami ! It was great honor hav­ing your dar­shan. I am deeply inspired by your wis­dom, tran­quil­ity & spirit. Thanks for giv­ing us this won­der­ful opportunity

Good Morn­ing! I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how happy I am with myself. Since, I have seen you last time, I have been prac­tic­ing my prana vidya every­day. I did it for 30 days in a row which was a great accom­plish­ment. I am not going to give up. I am going to cre­ate a reg­u­lar daily life­time practice.

I love how I feel and how my day flows. It really helps to be cen­tered dur­ing hard times.

I love the sys­tem­atic approach to prana vidya. I was strug­gling with the level 2 con­cen­tra­tion kriya at first bring the om (white light from third eye to crown) but I am start­ing to feel it now.

Once again thanks for bring­ing me such light in my life and being my teacher in life.

Kaliji, you take rock and trans­form it into crys­tal. you taught me the power of con­trol­ling the thoughts…

Dear Kaliji

I feel so grate­ful , because Triyoga is a part of my life.

Triyoga is for me so won­der­ful. It is like found­ing some­thing I have been look­ing for, for many years and I feel a new inner calm.

Triyoga is so unique and I am very happy to be cer­ti­fied in Triyoga Basics.

I look for­ward to see you in Den­mark in August.

Dear beloved Spir­i­tual Teacher and Mother,

As always, I am both amazed by and so thank­ful for the clar­ity and joy I feel after spend­ing time with Kaliji. I feel as if veils of con­fu­sion are lifted, ques­tions sud­denly have answers, and though and beliefs are sim­pli­fied. The flows take me deep into truth, both fright­en­ing and bless­ing. I feel so grate­ful to have these flows while on this jour­ney. They have done so much, Kaliji has done so much to help me find myself and my ever present joy. A joy I am learn­ing to find a share.

Thank YOU!!!

I so look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing my teacher train­ing and soon shar­ing level one TriYoga with the world:).

Most respected Kaliji,

I have felt this from the begin­ning and just wanted to say to you that there is such a purity and divin­ity in you … it shines through and mag­ni­fies your immensely beau­ti­ful and pow­er­ful aura. Yoga with you is a cleans­ing expe­ri­ence. As you con­duct the class, your energy washes through and cleanses – spir­i­tu­ally and phys­i­cally. I am truly blessed to be able to be part of this experience.

With my deep­est respects,

Every­one raves about Kaliji and there is an air of
excite­ment around her coming.

Om Shanti

It is with great love and joy that I write to thank you for the won­der­ful week-end. I have been doing my prana vidya since you left and my heart is healed as I enter the great bliss state. You are such an inspi­ra­tion and a true friend to me – I feel your love and the warmth of your being as I sit and con­tem­plate you. Thank you for giv­ing me power and deter­mi­na­tion to move for­ward in this life in the direc­tion of my dreams! I love you!!

Happy Birth­day Kaliji

You are in my thoughts heart and Flows everyday…and today espe­cially. Then, I remem­bered today is the day Kaliji’s phys­i­cal body choose to take on form, and be a ves­sel to share the age­less magic of the TriYoga Flows with the planet. Mil­lions have been touched and like me are so deeply grate­ful. I was just think­ing that if it weren’t for you car­ry­ing the mes­sage I would most likely still be flow­ing, but my eyes would not have been opened to what that truly meant. Thank you for see­ing clearly the light at the root of all.

Thank you for being my teacher.

With deep love,

Dear Kaliji,

I wish to thank you for all I have learned from you that day in Israel. I feel really con­nected to your work and believe I was able to con­nect to its essence. I think about it and imme­di­ately my spine wakes up. I sim­ply love it and was highly inspired by you.

Hope you will hon­our us with another visit soon.

Love your DVD’s. I pur­chased the Gen­tle Car­dio Flow and liked it so much, I went on to pur­chase the Hip Open­ing, Spine Open­ing, and Strength DVD’s. Very peace­ful flows…thank you.

As a teacher of TriYoga I have focused on stu­dents with phys­i­cal chal­lenges: the stiff­ness and lack of flex­i­bil­ity that comes from years of no atten­tion paid to the body, hip and knee replace­ments, can­cer, carpel tun­nel, and migraines to name a few of the ail­ments. These classes often begin with reports full of wonder.

I slept through the night for the first time.”

I haven’t expe­ri­enced road rage once this week.”

I could pick up my grand­daugh­ter with ease.”

I walked two blocks uphill to have cof­fee with my wife, I haven’t walked that far in years.”

I am no longer sur­prised by the sto­ries of change and heal­ing. I expect them. Pos­i­tive life trans­for­ma­tions that occur effort­lessly and with grace and humor are the nat­ural out­come of a TriYoga prac­tice. I’m infi­nitely grate­ful to Kaliji for TriYoga, and the good for­tune that brought me to her work and to my stu­dents who reaf­firm daily the mir­a­cles that fol­low the inner flow.


About 6 years ago, I spent a sum­mer in Great Bar­ring­ton work­ing for a the­atre com­pany. Dur­ing that time TriYoga offered all employ­ees free yoga. The work expe­ri­ence was par­tic­u­larly “chal­leng­ing” and the yoga expe­ri­ence par­tic­u­larly trans­form­ing. With­out TriYoga, a place to go and breathe and move with my body and hear the water flow­ing, I don’t know if or how I would have made it through those few months. It was then that I was able to actively ded­i­cate a part of my life to yoga and learn more about the prac­tice. Last year I fin­ished my first teacher train­ing and am now teach­ing in NYC. It’s been a beau­ti­ful addi­tion to the career aspect of my life, and above all shown me that noth­ing is really sep­a­rate from any other. I credit TriYoga for plant­ing the seed, for your gen­er­ous offer­ing of yoga. Yours is a gift that has con­tin­ued to give and give and give. Thank you thank you thank you.

Can really expe­ri­ence the TriYoga Flows. Have never expe­ri­enced how yoga is work­ing so deeply and the inside move­ments are expe­ri­enced even hours after yoga prac­tice. Feels like the body is mov­ing in a sub­tle and trans­form­ing way! Touch­ing and great expe­ri­ence! thanks!!!


After Basics Teacher Train­ing weekend…..

the knowl­edge is never end­ing
what won­der­ous excite­ment each time more is revealed…

each level of TriYoga can expand into the next level, expand into the pre­vi­ous level, or deepen into a tree whose roots and branches grow as one but in oppo­site directions.

it is all so amaz­ing… such an enor­mous bless­ing to be car­ried along in this flow
and the most enor­mous of all bless­ings is to have Kaliji as GURUJI to guide us..
with hum­ble and lov­ing thanks thanks thanks…

Dear Kaliji,

I’ve been try­ing to write you a thank you note but it is dif­fi­cult to express the mag­ni­tude of my grate­ful­ness and also to express exactly how much what you teach makes a dif­fer­ence in my life and means to me! I am so inspired by you. Every­thing can be the same but the per­spec­tive is dif­fer­ent and that makes all the dif­fer­ence. Any­way, I just wanted to express my grat­i­tude. I am so hon­ored to be a Kali Ray Tri Yoga teacher.

Light and love,

I am so thank­ful to have found you and this amaz­ing prac­tice. Do you know I used to go to the chi­ro­prac­tor at least every 3 weeks? Now – since I’ve been prac­tic­ing TY (and I used to prac­tice Iyen­gar – which did not give me the same ben­e­fits) I have been to the chi­ro­prac­tor about 5 times – that’s 5 times in 4 years! An Art & a Science!

Devi Dance ~

Yogini Kaliji is a mas­ter of move­ment, con­trol­ling not only every fiber of her body, she also has the rare abil­ity to keep all her emo­tions in tight con­trol, effort­lessly. Merg­ing her mind with the infi­nite, she is beyond judg­ment, an ocean of com­pas­sion, wis­dom and truth. Her DEVI DANCE is not a mere per­for­mance. It is the oth­er­wise invis­i­ble made vis­i­ble. With an enchant­ing smile of ecstasy on her radi­ant face, she becomes one with all, tran­scend­ing the known sta­tic 108 yoga pos­tures into a honey-like FLOW, beyond begin­ning and end, mes­mer­iz­ing the audi­ence to slip into the eter­nal moment that is pure bliss, fill them with music that can not be heard with ears, touch their hearts and souls. To the knowl­edge­able and the igno­rant alike, she is demon­strat­ing the omnipres­ence of the eter­nal FLOW that is divin­ity. Nei­ther art nor sci­ence, it is the under­ly­ing energy of all and every­thing, the entire uni­verse, the essence of cre­ation she cap­tures, in her stun­ning move­ment. Breath giv­ing –not tak­ing– absolutely con­trolled yet totally sur­ren­dered, play­fully con­cen­trated, she becomes the DANCE OF MOTHER GODDESS. This is The FLOW that can not be described with words, but to see it, expe­ri­ence it, only once, will trans­form every­body, and even after a long time the spec­ta­tor will expe­ri­ence, by sim­ply clos­ing the eyes, that it is indeed, a never end­ing FLOW that con­tin­ues like the eter­nal sound with which every­body can con­nect always. Kaliji achieves the appar­ent impos­si­ble: reveal­ing the essence of exis­tence, the eter­nal, cos­mic soul. By being in the FLOW, she her­self becomes, is, the FLOW…..

Namaste, Kaliji!

Kaliji, it was so won­der­ful see­ing you. You have such a glow, it’s beau­ti­ful to wit­ness. It’s such an inspi­ra­tion, really….to know what a ded­i­cated life of yoga, in a very full way, can cre­ate. Thank you for ded­i­cat­ing your life to all of us. Such a sac­ri­fice of some earthly things, but you must receive much greater rewards of divin­ity than the rest of us experience.

Jaya Guru Devi….



Happy birth­day to You!!!!

My dear­est Kaliji,

So happy to have a chance to send my warmest greet­ings to you on such a won­der­ful day!

Let me call things by their proper names. Once again+ These con­grat­u­la­tions are not for you but for us! I’m not con­grat­u­lat­ing, but glo­ri­fy­ing, prais­ing you! + And con­grat­u­lat­ing all of us… And even those who do not know you, who haven’t heard about you and TriYoga, who haven’t yet touched this per­fect mar­vel of bliss you brought here! This is their glad­ness too! We all are the One. There’s noth­ing around but Heav­ens. You’re the lim­it­less con­scious­ness and your pres­ence in this world is a great gift for the whole Creation!

Your beamy oceanic eyes glis­ten­ing with ever­last­ing love, time­less wis­dom and deep­est qui­es­cence in the state of the absolute aware­ness, your efful­gent smile, your magic inner and outer beauty cre­ate a tran­scen­dent aure­ola of love, life, suf­fi­ciency immers­ing all the Ens into the bot­tom­less ocean of the Uni­ver­sal per­fec­tion and Cos­mic bliss.

You’re the most won­der­ful beam­ingly alive Guru!!

Thank you so much for your exis­tence, your expe­ri­ence in this world and an extra­or­di­nary chance given to us to touch and share your experience.

Much love and devo­tion to you.

Kind­est regards,


My lovely, adorable Kaliji,

My cor­dial regards and appre­ci­a­tion to you!
Thank you for being!
And this is an attempt of verse for you:
You are woven from Light and Love
With your ten­der step
Pierc­ing the Night
You touch the stars and your heart cre­ates a sin­gle realm of worlds,
A new real­ity of great­est Grace
Of radi­ance unsur­passed.
Amrita touches you with its sparkling purity
And you with the lotus of your soul awaken other souls
And mine is also lighted.
I sing with you in the silence of del­i­cate hearts
The song of love+that song of love+that song of love

Much love,

Tatiana and your stu­dents in Siberia
April 2005

My expe­ri­ence with you was both joy­ful and pro­found, beyond words I can use. I found myself want­ing to laugh at times dur­ing both med­i­ta­tion and asana. Not a laugh because it was humor­ous, a laugh from deep within..something I have not expe­ri­enced before. This is my path of heart and of bliss. Devi has truly blessed me and graced me with you.

NY ~ 2005

My dear­est Kaliji:

Happy to write you again. Since you became my life I can’t keep in silence too long with­out con­tact­ing you :-)

Being with you, stay­ing with you, feel­ing the eva­sive aroma of your energy exhal­ing from you is a sheer delight!

I do not even feel your energy com­ing into me from out­side. I feel your energy aris­ing inside of me!!! You’re in my inte­rior silence, in my heart. The feel­ing of your pres­ence is espe­cially strong now.

It’s amaz­ing about you. You’re so light­some, aer­ial, Celes­tial, Divine and at the same time you’re sub­as­tral, acces­si­ble, aware, open for every­one, an exem­plar of good­ness, uncon­di­tional love and com­pas­sion. And besides all of that you’re a beau­ti­ful charm­ing woman. The Great­est Teacher one could ever dream of! :-)

Lov­ing you+ Think­ing of you+ Breath­ing you+ Liv­ing you+

Much love to you, my pre­cious God­dess Kaliji!

In the flow
Moscow, Rus­sia April 2005

On Siva Ratri: On this night who­ever utters the name of Shiva with per­fect devo­tion gets a free pass and all there sins are for­given. Also they become liberated.

This same theme is used through­out yoga history.

If you prac­tice Kriya yoga so many rounds you will be lib­er­ated, but each round must be perfect.

There is always a catch (isn’t there always) “per­fect prac­tice” And if a devo­tee could do per­fect parc­tice they wouldn’t need a spe­cial night or spe­cial technique.

Of all the sys­tems of yoga that have come to this planet only TriYoga step by step trains all aspects of the mind so a devo­tee can prac­tice yoga sad­hana per­fectly and with devotion.

First the com­plete breath makes the mind so calm, that it can be trained.
Then con­cen­tra­tion on the vic­tory breath brings the mind to one point.

When ever the mind is placed on any­thing the mind thinks about it. Stu­dents are taught com­plete vic­tory breath while being “the silent wit­ness” so rest­less thoughts do not dis­rupt the con­cen­tra­tion on the sound of the breath.

Con­stant prac­tice gives the mind the abil­ity to stay focused on one point or idea with­out interruption.

As the stu­dents con­tin­ues to prac­tice the body can sit in digam­bara (with the help of props) and not dis­turb the mind.

The breath and mind become slow, smooth, and silent and there appears nat­ural reten­tion between the inhala­tion and exha­la­tion. This is when the true power of TY shines because when the mind is inte­ri­or­ized and has no power of mudra the thoughts will take it away no mater how hard one tries to stay focused. With a mind that has been so superbly trained by TY sad­hana a devo­tee can take full advan­tage of the state pratya­hara to con­tinue yoga sad­hana using the higher techniques.

Now the stu­dent has the men­tal power to prac­tice energy visu­al­iza­tion with deep con­cen­tra­tion or utter the name of Shiva

But why is a per­son going to so much trou­ble, they could be prac­tic­ing to get power for evil?
The why is the devo­tional aspect.
Devo­tion is not emo­tion.
You can love some­one, even the Guru with self­ish motives.
After energy visu­al­iza­tion when we sit in med­i­ta­tion this mind that has been so inte­ri­or­ized and superbly trained to be the silent wit­ness gets to see itself in per­fect clar­ity. The chit may not dis­turb the prac­tice any­more but it will clearly show you who you really are. Or where you really are.

This TY sad­hana will also bring direct expe­ri­ence of higher power. When the mind devel­ops mudra there is noth­ing to pre­vent dar­shana with cos­mic power. This expe­ri­ence of Dar­shana will out­shine any rewards this earthly plane has to offer and become the “why” to prac­tice TY sadhana.

All this is pos­si­ble and only pos­si­ble because of Kaliji com­ing to this planet.

So if any name can be uttered with true devo­tion it would have to be Kaliji’s for all she has gives and done for us.

Devi Om


My dear­est Kaliji,

I’d be the hap­pi­est human in the world if I had a chance to see you… Any­thing is possible.

Though no dis­tance can sep­a­rate me from you. Hearts need no efforts, no mat­ter how far we are from each other we’re always together. And this con­nec­tion is still stronger than any part­ing, being eter­nal and unbreak­able… My soul dances with you in ecstasy and the Divine takes my hand and guides me…

It is the Flow. Wise, end­less, begin­ning­less, bot­tom­less, bliss­ful… the Absolute Noth­ing and… Everything…

It is you… It is me… It is just uncaused exis­tence. We are the one. My love’s grow­ing and expand­ing day by day and I’m so glad to bring it back to you with grat­i­tude chang­ing myself and mak­ing this world a lit­tle more beau­ti­ful and lighter :-)

Much love to you, my beloved Guru, my pre­cious God­dess Kaliji!

In the flow…Julia

This morn­ing I was walk­ing in the woods enjoy­ing the snow while remem­ber­ing when I met you the very first time at clo­sure of my TT Basics in Zurich (August 2006)… sud­denly you where in front of me, looked at me and said: Jaya Guru Devi… at that time I didn’t even know that I was step­ping into a new world… today I feel it in all my cells and I’m moved to tears… that’s so GRAND!

From the very depth of my soul ~ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!

Hi Kaliji,

When I let You inspire me
the Smile grows to the sky
open­ing my inner eye
and I can see

the final goal
the soul

where every­thing emerges
the End of search

I´m being in the sea
the sea inside of me

How Lucky I am who have met YOU!


Swe­den, Sept 2011

You are smart as the bindu of great know­ing, grace­fully trans­lated into words of wis­dom I love to hear.

Deeply quiet feel­ing, lis­ten­ing to Kaliji ‘s vibrat­ing energy, bathed in that ethe­real light

You are Jaya Guru Devi.

What an incred­i­ble chan­nel you are…
Truly a phenomenon!

Sept 4, 2011

To be with you dur­ing a whole week was a pro­found expe­ri­ence for me.
I am grate­ful that TriYoga is such a won­der­ful guide
to do this step by step so my mind can get used to it slowly.

Switzer­land, August 2011


You are such a source of inspi­ra­tion to me. I feel I learn so much just being in your presence.

Sat Nam, Jaya Guru Devi and Namaste and Hare Krishna dear Kaliji,

It was so great to take your class this time in NOLA.
It was delight­ful and very help­ful to learn the actual flow properly.

I want you to know that I very much honor you for cod­i­fy­ing this amaz­ing sys­tem of using the band­has in asana prac­tice and link­ing it with break to move the life force through as well as teach­ing a quite com­plete Hatha yoga sys­tem in such an attrac­tive and sweet way. It was an honor to have your asso­ci­a­tion and a delight.

I hope to study with you again soon, and hope­fully, maybe we could all dance together like devas after class to your gurudevas sweet music.

Very warmly and with deep respect,

Ananda Goldstein-Damerla M Ed.,Ph.D.© CHt, CLC,

Dear Kaliji,

When I came back home yes­ter­day after meet­ing with you, a friend of mine had called and as I was speak­ing with her she wanted me to know that I sounded really “peaceful.” I told her that it was because I had just been in your radi­ant pres­ence. I can’t seem to take my mind off of that radi­ance that you exude. I left you with only one thing, and that is the burn­ing desire to use this life of mine to start look­ing within to try and reach that bril­liant state that you are in. I am con­vinced that noth­ing else matters.

My deep­est grat­i­tude for your patience in answer­ing ques­tions and shar­ing your time and pres­ence with us uncon­di­tion­ally. You are noth­ing but an absolute pure embod­i­ment of love in its high­est form and that is what I am aspir­ing to see in me. Thank you for your guid­ance. Thank you is just an ordi­nary word that expresses noth­ing of what I am feel­ing. Tomor­row, May 31st, is my 44th birth­day and I think that the most remark­able thing has happened..truly a new beginning!!

Dear Kali Ray,

Heartily I write you to indi­cate my delight with TriYoga.
I am so enthu­si­as­tic because it changes my life.

I like to call it the Yoga of the future, because here in Ger­many many peo­ple doesn’t under­stand it.

For 40 years I have prac­ticed Yoga and 20 years long I have taught Yoga. Start­ing with TriYoga about 18 months ago, I gained flex­i­bil­ity and calm­ness like in the 10 years before.

The seren­ity in the flows soaks into the body and changes it to a good health, even the spirit becomes fine.

Of course I write here things you know best within your­selves. Nev­er­the­less, I would like to express my enjoy­ment and my grat­i­tude for TriYoga.

Remain­ing thankful,

Your stu­dent,

Helga Win­ter

You are a Yogini, Kaliji, and we love you for it. We think about you every­day and how lucky we are to have the flows in our hOMe.

Tina, Elena, and Luci (our cat)

Thank you for all the help you have given me. I will never be able to express with words what your visit in Octo­ber meant to me. I am so grate­ful for the time and the com­pas­sion I received.

Since your visit I trans­formed one of the rooms in my house into a yoga/meditation room…now I am never with­out the same com­fort that room brings me at the TriYoga center.I also get alot of sup­port from the teach­ers there and I am now grate­ful to be back in Iowa and so close to that center.

I visit the web-site often and I can see by the arti­cles I have read I am one of the many peo­ple that have ben­e­fited from TriYoga and Kaliji’s lov­ing spirit. It has been a bless­ing to redis­cover TriYoga and it is a much deeper com­mit­ment for me now. I look for­ward to see­ing you again soon.


Octo­ber 2009

Namaskar Kaliji,

TriYoga is a rev­e­la­tion for me.
Thank you very much for what you brought into this world.

TriYoga changed my life. I try to trans­form the sys­tem­at­i­cal, pre­cise and focused flow of TriYoga into my work and life every day a lit­tle bit more.

I share my expe­ri­ence with friends.
And now with the TY teach­ing cer­tifi­cate I will put it step by step into my pro­fes­sional life.

Thank you very much.



Thank you for shar­ing your wis­dom with the world!! Each day when I teach a TriYoga class I am filled with hap­pi­ness and grate­ful­ness that the flow has entered and trans­formed my life and that I am able to share the beauty of TriYoga with others!

It is so won­der­ful to see peo­ple change within only 90 min­utes, and even when they arrive stressed, sad or really seri­ous, they all leave the class with an open heart and a faith­ful smile on their face.. no mat­ter what their age or back­ground are, at the end of class they all flow within the same spirit….

It is such a gift to be able to make that happen…because of the knowl­edge, guide­lines and integrity I got from study­ing in Santa Cruz at the TriYoga Center!

Jaya Guru Devi

Kaliji is sim­ply amaz­ing. My love for you keeps grow­ing and deep­en­ing. Your guid­ance of my soul’s jour­ney inten­si­fies (espe­cially in your pres­ence) and strength­ens my belief that I am on the right path, the path with heart, bliss, and service.

Namaste’ Kaliji,

I hold TriYoga in the high­est regard and have a tremen­dous love and appre­ci­a­tion for it and the impact it has had in my life. I have begun a new path toward love now that feels like a grad­u­a­tion of sorts from many many fear-based life­times. I see this as one of my key spir­i­tual pur­poses and I know that TriYoga was instru­men­tal in cre­at­ing this new real­ity and will con­tinue to be a fun­da­men­tal anchor and inspi­ra­tion for me on my journey.

Thank you for your inspi­ra­tion Kaliji. Last year was the first time I was able to study with you and that’s when TriYoga really clicked for me. You said some­thing that for­ever changed my rela­tion­ship to yoga. You said that ‘TriYoga was about prac­tic­ing for flow­ing grace­fully in life’. So, what can I say? I’m so inspired by flow as a spir­i­tual prac­tice and way of living.

FLA June ’06

This morn­ing flew on my mat and felt the uncom­pa­ra­ble beauty and truth in TriYoga Flows once again. Espe­cially in Level 2, Series 3 – 2 felt really happy. There are so many small sequences radi­at­ing Sri Kaliji’s bril­liant spirit. I do like it very much. It is easy and gives so much joy.

So just felt the spon­ta­neous wish to express gratitude

Please go on cre­at­ing such a beauty

Michael JGD

Dear Kaliji,

I have grown so much since I first started prac­tic­ing Triyoga with you eleven years ago. The asanas, pranayama, and med­i­ta­tion that you’ve taught me over the years have put me in this place of want­ing to dis­cover even more about what/who I am. I thank you every­day for being a part of my life.

Thank you for shar­ing Triyoga with us all.

Jill, Oregon

Octo­ber – Level 3 – intensive

Jaya guru devi Kaliji,

Ten days of such well bal­anced, grad­u­ated Level 3 flow prac­tice gave me insights into many things like the anna­maya kosha, how it is changed by the flows (cleaned and bal­anced – I feel I had hip, back and shoul­der replace­ments!), how one needs less sleep, devel­ops a keen sen­si­tiv­ity to the qual­ity and energy of food and in fact any­thing one takes “in.” Many times dur­ing inter­nal reten­tion I expe­ri­enced the white light we visu­al­ize in con­cen­tra­tion charg­ing up my spine to behind my eyes and up to the crown.

I love observ­ing you teach as there is an infi­nite amount to learn about mod­i­fi­ca­tions, rep­e­ti­tion and par­tic­u­larly pac­ing that always amazes me. Thanks for such a won­der­ful experience.

Thank you for the won­der­ful class you gave on Prana Vidya…….What an excel­lent teacher you are….so uni­ver­sal in your deliv­ery on simul­ta­ne­ous lev­els at one time…..that it in itself is a joy to watch man­i­fest through you. Thank you for the honor of wit­ness­ing that in such a small and per­sonal venue. You are always in my heart.

Jaya Guru Devi, Kaliji,

I always feel like a begin­ner when I come to you & learn so much. It’s a deeper sense of flow & med­i­ta­tion. The Tri Yoga you share is a great bless­ing to us all. It brings us to our Ananda. Words can­not con­vey the grat­i­tude I feel for your grace & Bless­ings! Thank you for find­ing me in this life & teach­ing us.

You have taken this very crip­pled body, and showed it ways to be hap­pier from the inside out. To find the space between the breath…to hear the silence, expand in all directions…to trust the love and wis­dom I am being granted through you…my friends, my family.

I am con­stantly amazed by TriYoga.
It is inter­est­ing to me that, after 9 hours of yoga this week­end, I
am not really sore.I thought I would not be able to do much today! I
am con­sid­er­ing increas­ing my prac­tice. What I saw this week­end was
not exer­cise. I like that. The flow. I can feel it in a walk even.

John Mooter

I love prac­tis­ing my asanas in flow­ing sequences, and the TriYoga Flows just made so much sense, not just to me but to peo­ple of dif­fer­ent ages and lev­els of experience.

Viviane De Don­cker

I told already some of the details in tran­si­tions to my stu­dents and they gave me a very beau­ti­ful idea that TriYoga is like a dance, with­out any stops with flow­ing breath, move­ments and best feelings,

Well, they are right,
Kateryna Bilyk

I have had the won­der­ful oppor­tu­nity to take a few classes in Triyoga. I’ve never expe­ri­enced a more beau­ti­ful or enliven­ing prac­tice and would like to make it a larger part of my life.

Thank you.
Symma Finn

My goal is to deepen my under­stand­ing and prac­tice of Kali Ray TriYoga for per­sonal bal­ance, har­mony, and enlight­en­ment. In the last year and a half that I have been prac­tic­ing Kali Ray TriYoga, my life has been trans­formed. I feel health­ier and more alive, and I’m rarely ill.

Kehaulani Proc­tor Pettersen

I saw a sign that said ‘yoga’. i signed up for the pro­gram.
Not know­ing what kind of yoga, which did not mat­ter any­way at the time. To me, yoga is yoga, you stretch, breathe a lit­tle and you feel good.

I did not know I was going to be taken to so many incred­i­ble sacred places that has enriched my life for­ever, when i entered the Kali Ray TriYoga program.

Dot­tie Hill

I haven’t been able to stop doing the flows since last week­end.
This is truly the most amaz­ing thing I’ve ever done.
I can’t believe how pow­er­ful it is.

Melissa Leifer

A fel­low instruc­tor rec­om­mended the TriYoga sys­tem after I attended one of her classes. I really con­nected with the flows and move­ments. I ordered one of your tapes and really felt like the approach to Yoga was very grounded and safe. I started attend­ing TriYoga classes. I really feel like the basics help teach stu­dents a good foun­da­tion, TriYoga always makes my body feel very bal­anced and present and I feel like it is so adapt­able to a range of stu­dents and needs which is what I encounter so much in my teach­ing. Most impor­tant though is that I feel very com­plete and very drawn to this sys­tem. I have tried many styles and schools of Yoga and I feel very attracted the TriYoga system.

Monique Miller

This was a very spe­cial visit for me because I expe­ri­enced the flow in the pos­tures for the first time which has con­tin­ued to carry over in my every­day life. I was (and still am) so peace­ful inside and the strug­gle I some­times feel tran­si­tion­ing from one event to another has been effort­less and enjoy­able. I have been to nine of your week­end work­shops and each time I have gleaned dif­fer­ent aspects of your teach­ing. This time in addi­tion to
incor­po­rat­ing words I was able to inte­grate feel­ing and it has changed every­thing for me.

I have always been delighted that Tri Yoga was a part of my life and now I am even more delighted. I can’t thank you enough for intro­duc­ing it to me.

Port­land, OR

From the very first time I walked into the Kali Ray TriYoga cen­ter in Santa Cruz three years ago to attend one of Yogi’s classes I knew that TriYoga was the way. The flow is so pow­er­ful and free I can feel the bliss­ful­ness flow infi­nitely. I always knew there was some­thing spe­cial deep inside me, yet it was just a mat­ter of time, expe­ri­ence and prac­tice before I could find a way to tap into it. Luck­ily I flowed right into TriYoga.

Kim­berly H. Reimann

Greet­ings TriYoga!

I have had many “false starts” in yoga in the past until I was intro­duced to Kali Ray’s TriYoga. I have con­sis­tently attended classes and train­ings for the last year and it has enriched my life immensely.

I have been so amazed and grat­i­fied by the approach TriYoga takes to mak­ing “mod­i­fi­ca­tions” and the sys­tem­atic progress that can by made by this form of Yoga.

This train­ing allows me to more fully under­stand the pos­tures, the breath­ing and how to get the most out of my own prac­tice. The teacher train­ings I have attended allow me to “immerse” myself in the prac­tice for a longer period of time. They are wonderful!

TriYoga has made such a pro­found change in my life and I am just get­ting started! I am thrilled to have found this form of yoga at a time in my life (age 45) when I thought that my abil­ity to phys­i­cally change was declin­ing! I had no idea the doors that would open inside myself through the prac­tice of yoga. Thank you Kali Ray for this incred­i­ble gift.

Syd­nie Smith

I love TriYoga because the flow­ing style works so beau­ti­fully. It cre­ates imme­di­ate open­ings and aware­ness, while mov­ing energy through the body so gen­tly and safely. It cre­ates flu­id­ity and open­ness in the spine which I love. Also, I have been a dancer most of my life and this is danc­ing of the most beau­ti­ful kind.

I feel TriYoga will help me inte­grate much of what I have stud­ied and learned in my life this far and will pro­vide a rich and impor­tant path on which to con­tinue grow­ing and giving.

Anne Hughes

After 5 years of liv­ing, learn­ing and teach­ing yoga in India I came to Cal­i­for­nia and started to study TRIYOGA. It has trans­formed my whole yoga prac­tice and become the basis of my teach­ing. For myself it has resolved blocks, par­tic­u­larly in my spine which years of pre­vi­ous yoga had not.

I am amazed about the trans­for­ma­tive power of this yoga. I am very grate­ful for this pre­cious gift ….

Cas­san­dra Schmidt
Grass Val­ley, CA

I did a pri­vate with a lady who has been suf­fer­ing from chronic fatigue syn­drome, fibromyal­gia, and so many more ail­ments that her team of doc­tors has given up on her. She is in such a frag­ile state she was afraid to come to a class so we did a pri­vate. (She was afraid of the pri­vate too, but never said any­thing). I did the most basic of Basics with her, includ­ing breath­ing. And while she was in class, for the first time since her ill­ness, she for­got about it all. Her mind and body found home – TriYoga. The next day I spoke to her and she was ecsta­tic!! She had called her whole team of doc­tors and told them about the class. For the first time she was able to feel her body like she use to when she was an active, vibrant per­son. She is call­ing it a mir­a­cle because she has tried every­thing else on the planet and noth­ing has worked. I told her a bit about the sys­tem and why it works – the spinal waves, the sys­tem­atic approach, the founder… She knows she will be a stu­dent of TriYoga for life ….

Jas­min Jinn
Santa Cruz, CA

TriYoga is giv­ing more life and joy to my teach­ing. TriYoga has a few aspects which I did not include in my pre­vi­ous way of teach­ing. The beauty and aes­thetic of the flows, the mudras… It also gives me the chance to expe­ri­ence and develop it for myself. I am very thank­ful that I can con­tinue on this path through using the writ­ten infor­ma­tion. The man­ual has been impor­tant to me as it gives me con­ti­nu­ity and con­sis­tent progress in my own yoga prac­tice and in my teaching.

Rose­lyne Colin

I can­not express to you how thank­ful I am for TriYoga. I love teach­ing it, and I can see such incred­i­ble growth in my yoga stu­dents. And I am not ner­vous about teach­ing any­more. It is com­ing smoothly.

Learn­ing to speak through the flows has actu­ally helped me in my life and reg­u­lar teach­ing job. My speak­ing abil­i­ties have improved, which has come through because of the econ­omy of words and pre­ci­sion of speech from the TriYoga training.

Wendy Pin­cus
Levit­town, NY

TriYoga is an excel­lent sys­tem for strength­en­ing and improv­ing the flex­i­bil­ity of the whole body. I like the med­i­ta­tive aspect of the flows. It is ele­gant and effi­cient to go through class grace­fully and with­out the start-and-stop of many styles.

Nancy Paris
Cedar Rapids, IA

Thank you for putting together this superb sys­tem, It is beau­ti­fully suited to the human body.

In fact it is so good that even the most fum­bling attempt to move through the flows pro­duces great results.

Sherry Mor­ton
Atlanta, GA

The strength and flex­i­bil­ity from TriYoga allow me to con­tinue my prac­tice of long dis­tance run­ning with­out suf­fer­ing seri­ous injury. I would love to intro­duce TriYoga to ath­letes as a way to main­tain a healthy body and spirit while con­tin­u­ing a rig­or­ous train­ing schedule.

Nyssa Tay­lor

I love the grace and flu­id­ity of the flows and how they keep you in the breath.
The focus of the work is transforming.

Christy Pip­kin

It makes so much sense……..among its many ben­e­fits I think of – it feeds the desire to cre­ate art, it ful­fills the long­ing to con­nect with the divine, it allows us to release old emo­tion tied up in our bod­ies, and its pro­gres­sion makes it pos­si­ble for folks of all kind to see its benefits……


The TriYoga flows are so beau­ti­ful! I have no words except one: Kalei­do­scope…. it’s like energy has a Bindu or cen­ter, which is Cos­mic power ~ infi­nite ~ and from this Bindu comes all of these beau­ti­ful, geo­met­ric pat­terns of energy, chang­ing one to the next, each con­nected, each so per­fect in its form…. so math­e­mat­i­cally pre­cise, so ener­get­i­cally pure and uplift­ing and beau­ti­ful…. it man­i­fests on so many lev­els! This is what TriYoga is, com­ing out of that great man­i­fes­ta­tion of Energy.. this is my expe­ri­ence… it is so amazing.

Sev­eral things have attracted me to the TriYoga Teacher Train­ing. I like the ben­e­fits for indi­vid­u­als based on the flow lev­els. It allows indi­vid­u­als the oppor­tu­nity to prac­tice yoga at their own pace and fit­ness level. I am also impressed by the sup­port­ive and friendly men­tors and the self-paced study.


At the TriYoga Cen­ter in Santa Cruz, I enjoyed classes very much and learned a lot from each of them. I am very grate­ful to and impressed with all the TRIYOGA-people I met and the yogaflow, pranayama, med­i­ta­tions, and Chant Club have touched me deeply.
I feel the impor­tance for me and my future life, that I had the occa­sion to meet Kaliji and I am very grate­ful for this chance.

I hope you can under­stand what I am try­ing to say.

So I want to thank you and all the oth­ers for every­thing I could experience.

Jai Guru Datta. I knew deep inside that when I took a class from you that it would be an ini­ti­a­tion, of sorts, into Hatha Yoga and SriV­idya. I was right; I have been unable to stop since the first class in the Datta Tem­ple. It was a per­fect space and per­fect time. I can­not put into words how SriV­idya is com­ing, but it seems to be unfold­ing from within the yogasanas. The process can­not be grasped with words, nor can the know­ing be spo­ken at this point.

Again, my deep­est grat­i­tude for your part in my path.

Much much love,

Namaste Kali Ray,

I was for­tu­nate enough to be at the Inter­na­tional Yoga Teach­ers Asso­ci­a­tion Con­fer­ence in Sin­ga­pore in Sep­tem­ber 2001 where you intro­duced your Triyoga Flows.

I then intro­duced some of the flow­ing pos­tures taught to us by you at the con­fer­ence into my Yoga classes. I feel it is one of the safest flow­ing sequences of pos­tures to main­tain sup­ple­ness and lead to high­ter spir­i­tual attainment.

Kaliji, I am find­ing that when I get agi­tated I go into breath and mudra…the mudra has an extra­or­di­nary affect on me… brings an inner peace to both body and mind. I feel as though I am seal­ing in my energy and those that want to drain that energy can­not. In some dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions where I would uncon­sciously give my energy away, my hands go into mudra and my energy stays. This just started; it is extra­or­di­nary. Thank you.

I am very grate­ful for my teacher, Kaliji. After study­ing TriYoga for many years and hav­ing a reg­u­lar asana prac­tice, I now have a reg­u­lar Prana Vidya and med­i­ta­tion prac­tice also. With the addi­tion of Prana Vidya and med­i­ta­tion I am feel­ing the begin­nings of prana mov­ing in my body, espe­cially dur­ing Nada Pasyanti (sound light med­i­ta­tion). Years ago I had this same feel­ing when I would occa­sion­ally prac­tice Prana Vidya but it felt so intense I was afraid of it and would some­times faint. Now that I am con­sis­tent with Prana Vidya, the same feel­ing comes and instead of being afraid, I look for­ward to it and wel­come it. The feel­ing I have is that every cell in my body is vibrat­ing … chang­ing me, renew­ing me. It brings me much joy.

After Prana washes over me … I feel cre­ative and I hear guid­ance more clearly … and I am learn­ing to expect guid­ance and I am learn­ing to trust guid­ance and I am act­ing on that guid­ance and watch­ing where it takes me.

I am read­ing Kaliji’s Prana Vidya man­ual and just now opened it up and I read: “Learn from the snake. Just as the snake sheds its old skin, in med­i­ta­tion the lay­ers of the old self fall away. That which no longer serves a pur­pose, in our mind or life, falls away like the worn out skin of a snake.” This is what I am feel­ing more and more as I am con­sis­tent with Prana Vidya and meditation.

I also have been reg­u­lar with eye exer­cises for over 6 months and my eyes are improv­ing. I feel it won’t be long and I will not need glasses to read. I will keep Kaliji updated on my progress con­cern­ing my eyes.

I want to thank Kaliji for the oppor­tu­nity to serve TriYoga with my cook­ing and sewing. When I cook for Kaliji and TY stu­dents and friends, a magic hap­pens. Often the din­ners are for fifty and more. I cre­ate these meals with very lit­tle help … not count­ing divine help, of course. Dur­ing these times, time seems to sus­pend. The feel­ing I expe­ri­ence is that there is more time than tasks to do. I dance, chant, clean, chop, toss and cook all day and yet there is a still­ness around me and in me. Oth­ers who help with these meals have also reported such an expe­ri­ence. The food is always amaz­ing … I would have to say divine; divinely inspired, divinely deli­cious. Food that nour­ishes more than the body and mind but also our souls.

Thank you Kaliji for your love, your teach­ings and your con­sis­tency in my life. You are an amaz­ing inspi­ra­tion to me and so many oth­ers. Love, Jia Anna­purna Saraswati

Namaste Kaliji,

You are often on my mind as I spend every morn­ing with one of your “Daily 10″ dvd’s. So you are always present in my vision and heart. I feel that I have learned so much from you. For two months now, I have spent 1 – 1/2 hours every day with TriYoga, pranayama, and med­i­ta­tion.
I’ve learned a lot about my rela­tion­ship to breath, really let­ting go, slow­ing down, atten­tion to detail, and going within deeply.

After being a Kri­palu Yoga teacher since 1992 (now tak­ing a break from teach­ing), I thought I knew a lot about all that, but a real deep­en­ing is occur­ring and I am a begin­ning stu­dent. That feels like a good place to be. It has even affected my hus­band, who is 74, and he is now (after 12 years of being around me and yoga) begin­ning to do parts of your “Free­ing the Spine” dvd. Thank you for shar­ing who you are and what you do so beau­ti­fully and heart­fully, Kaliji.

A side effect to doing TriYoga con­sis­tently is that it has ruined my inter­est in any other style of hatha yoga, and I am giv­ing away my video yoga col­lec­tion. But that’s ok.

In the flow,

My dear­est, beloved Kaliji,

The biggest, the sweet­est action one can do in life is to give the Real Mas­ter charge over the essence, to sur­ren­der to the Sin­cere Teacher! You elim­i­nate and dis­solve any impu­ri­ties. Thanks to you I real­ized the illu­sive nature of all the hap­pen­ing in the outer world. What­ever hap­pens – it’s just another step on the Knowl­edge Way allow­ing us to expand still far­ther in love. Thanks to you I expe­ri­enced myself a wit­ness and under­stood that when the world is illu­sive+ only the wit­ness is real. I Am Life!

Very often I have ques­tions for you to ask and when I’ve already decided to write to you I get all the answers! Thank you!

The Love I feel towards you is not love-relationship” but Love-state” that you awaken inside of me. It’s not directed, but it’s just pure Love, that over­fills me and vibrates and res­onates espe­cially strongly when touch­ing with you.

You give an inim­itable feel­ing of the absolute safety within con­stant changes, devel­op­ment and grow­ing! No stag­nancy, but eter­nal trans­for­ma­tion and + safety! You give the true under­stand­ing of the real expe­ri­ence of just being”, not doing”… of per­form­ing with­out acting.

Your heart is the cen­ter, the eye of the whole Uni­verse! What­ever ten­sion I bring to the yoga mat it’s imme­di­ately dis­solved by your caress­ing voice, that feasts the ears with fairy music like thin morn­ing haze veils hills involv­ing the soul into ecsta­tic lim­it­less expan­sive­ness awak­en­ing the inter­nal flow. And the soul feels the waves of the flow, feels the Ens embow­er­ing it and lulling it in its cra­dle. And the body responds imme­di­ately with the great­est grate­ful­ness and relaxation!

I love you so much! You make me so airy and vibrant! You – the biggest sparkling Pearl in a won­der­ful Neck­lace! The real Jewel of the Divine!

With all my love and devo­tion to you, my pre­cious adorable God­dess Kaliji, my ten­derly beloved Guru, I remain with

Best regards

In the Flow

Dear Kaliji,

Jaya Guru Datta.

Kaliji, Wanted to thank you for bring­ing a beau­ti­ful expe­ri­ence into our life. Last 10 days I was not able to do Yoga for some rea­son or the other. This has been both­er­ing me greatly, but each day was pass­ing by. Today I felt I had to do and was up early and started doing yoga with your DVD. As I was doing I felt my body lit­er­ally sing, and my mus­cles smile and dance inside. As I am putting this in words I see it sounds crazy, but lit­er­ally I felt that my body was a string instru­ment and as I was mov­ing in the pos­tures each of the strings were being plucked. The breath going in and out was a beau­ti­ful sooth­ing breeze to the inside of the body. Also it felt as if this was the best kind of pros­tra­tion and prayer I was offer­ing with my entire body to the divine.

Thank you so much for this, as it is your teach­ing with the cor­rect breath and flow that has made such a won­der­ful expe­ri­ence pos­si­ble. I pray for bless­ings so that I may have the strength and deter­mi­na­tion to prac­tice always.

Sri Guru Datta.
Bindu Lanka










Dear­est Kaliji!

Jai Guru DeviDatta…

We want to say con­grat­u­la­tions on con­clud­ing 25 years of Triyoga! We wish you the same suc­cess and hap­pi­ness for years and years to come. Our beloved Appaji is with us every step of the way, guid­ing us on the right path always and for­ever! Thank you so much for pro­vid­ing our Datta group with the knowl­edge that you con­tin­u­ously share with us and with the won­der­ful DVD’s and CD’s that you have to offer. We have so much more to learn!

With best wishes always Kaliji!

Much love to every­one at Triyoga from our family!

Sri Guru DeviDatta…


Dear Kaliji,

I always get so much out of prac­tic­ing with you. So often I think of so many things I want to tell you about the flows, the depth of Triyoga, but when I see you my mind is so still, I can’t think of any words, just “thank you.”

I see and hear about the ben­e­fits of Triyoga every­day from the peo­ple who attend my classes. The great major­ity are so loyal, some attend all the classes I teach every week. It builds such a solid foun­da­tion from the energy body out­wards that progress is not only nat­ural but has many health benefits.

This is all thanks to you!!!!

Jaya guru devi,

When I first met Kaliji, the beauty of her words and the TriYoga flows, and her com­pas­sion­ate heart inspired me to learn more. For the nearly 15 years that I’ve known her, my life has been uplifted and trans­formed repeat­edly with the study and prac­tice of TriYoga. Dur­ing this time, I’ve also expe­ri­enced the joy of teach­ing and see­ing many stu­dents blessed with the grace that flows within our yoga prac­tice. Kaliji shines radi­antly as a glow­ing exam­ple, gen­tly inspir­ing us to our own radi­ant peace­ful­ness in all sit­u­a­tions. Each TriYoga prac­tice that we com­mit to do is another lib­er­at­ing expe­ri­ence to feel good in body, relaxed in mind, and uplifted in spirit, ulti­mately cre­at­ing a more peace­ful world.

JGD Kaliji:
Have been wow­ing non-Triyoga yoga stu­dents with hip rota­tions. Such a sim­ple prac­tice, such an impact. Amaz­ing how a nat­ural move­ment should be such a rev­e­la­tion to some peo­ple. Thanks for mak­ing me appear a genius/miracle worker to cer­tain mem­bers of the Berke­ley YMCA!
