Yogini KalijiKaliji is inter­na­tion­ally renowned as a yogini and founder of TriYoga®. Trav­el­ing exten­sively, she has taught TriYoga on a daily basis for over 30 years. Inte­grat­ing East­ern thought and West­ern tra­di­tion, she has pre­sented 40 keynote addresses at yoga con­fer­ences and other venues world­wide, and has been fea­tured widely in the media. She was fea­tured in the book Secrets of the World’s Inspi­ra­tional Women, with pho­tos of the women in the pres­ti­gious National Por­trait Gallery in Lon­don. Kaliji’s pres­ence, her mas­tery of the flow, and the age­less wis­dom inher­ent in TriYoga have inspired and trans­formed count­less lives.

In the tra­di­tion of ancient yoga, TriYoga is guided by Kriya­vati sid­dhi (kundalini-inspired yoga) as it flows through Kaliji. She has sys­tem­atized asana (pos­ture), pranayama (breath­ing prac­tices), and dha­rana (con­cen­tra­tion tech­niques) from Basics to Level 7, and over 1000 hasta mudras (hand ges­tures) have expressed through her.

TriYoga, which includes the full range of yoga prac­tices, is taught in more than 40 coun­tries by over 1100 cer­ti­fied teach­ers (200+ in China), and 37 TriYoga Cen­ters have been estab­lished, includ­ing cen­ters in Aus­tralia, Aus­tria, China, Den­mark, Ger­many, India, Rus­sia, Switzer­land, Tai­wan, Ukraine and the United States.

In addi­tion, Kaliji is co-founder of Chant Club®, a music ensem­ble pre­sent­ing San­skrit chants in call-and-response style. She is a vocal­ist and plays harmonium.

Inspired by her love of ani­mals, Kaliji has prac­ticed the vegan plant-based lifestyle for over 30 years.

Kaliji was given the title “Yogini” by H. H. Sri Gana­p­ati Sachchi­dananda Swamiji of Mysore, India. In 2006, in recog­ni­tion of Kaliji’s global human­i­tar­ian ser­vice, Sri Swamiji and Datta Peetham hon­ored her with the Vishwa Bandhu award. Vishwa Bandhu trans­lates as friend of the uni­verse, a car­ing rel­a­tive of humanity.
