Kaliji incorporated Yoga philosophy into every flow class and gave 2-hour discourses on various jnana topics, including Nada and Samkhya Yoga. Dr. G shared the medical facts on the countless benefits of yoga, including new research on fasting. His talk inspired many to join the full moon fast on the 26th, and to refer to the TriYoga fasting calendar for the next fasting date.

After each session, students gathered around Kaliji to share their inspiration ~ to express how much Kaliji’s wisdom and guidance touch their hearts and opened their minds. Many students expressed their joy through dance, and almost every session concluded with an impromptu dance party.

On Friday afternoon, Kashi, TriYoga teacher from Sebastopol CA, offered a TriYoga dance class, where she choreographed TriYoga sequences to music.

Patrick, whose music mastery and entertaining personality are loved by many, came to celebrate the TY anniversary on his birthday. All were happy to meet his wife Amy (whose birthday preceded his by a couple of days) and newly born daughter Kaja. Their family was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming dinner and vegan birthday cake from the TY community.

On Friday afternoon, after Kaliji’s discourse on Samkya yoga and the dual energies of Purusa and Prakriti, a double rainbow appeared in the sky. There had been no rain that day, yet the two rainbows danced above Kaliji for more than half and hour. All those with her were delighted by this beautiful phenomenon, and its relevance to Kaliji’s talk!
