Yogini Kaliji’s summer Europe tour continued with a wonderful week retreat at Chiemsee in Bavaria, Germany, organized by TriYoga Center Allershausen director Johanna.
The retreat was attended by over 30 students representing 10 countries: Austria, China, Germany, Holland, India, Italy, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland and USA.
Students enjoyed two sessions each day with TriYoga Flows, Prana Vidya and Mudra.
Dr. G offered talks on the medical benefits of prana vidya, meditation, and laughter.
The retreat featured music every evening. For the first two sessions, Yogini Kaliji and Mecury Max were joined by Prasann and his dazzling accompaniment on tabla.
Prasann played tabla during flow sessions, and accompanied mantras by Mercury Max during yoga nidra.
TriYoga Teacher Bernie from Austria is a professional rock guitarist, and also sat-in with Chant Club.
Bernie and Mercury also performed thrilling jam sessions before and after chanting, and entertained students late into the final night of the retreat.

Chiemsee is a large lake surrounded by rolling fields and backed by a stunning mountain landscape—a beautiful setting for an immersion into TriYoga. The Jonathan Retreat Center provided a beautiful space to flow, comfortable rooms, and fantastic vegan meals.
This happy group spent an afternoon on the lake, visiting two small islands and enjoying the sun.

During the drive between the Bad Meinberg and Chiemsee retreats, Yogini Kaliji and the travel group experienced an amazing nature darshana. With the sun shining from behind, and the sky in front a dramatic canvas of dark clouds, rain, and patches of sun, the group witnessed a brilliant and complete double rainbow for over 30 minutes. The open landscape allowed the entire rainbow to be seen continuously, sometimes appearing as if the car was passing directly under the rainbow with the “end of the rainbow” on either side.
Another rainbow greeted those arriving at the retreat.
The kind staff at The Loving Hut in Nürnberg kept their restaurant open late for the travel group and made fresh food for the buffet.
Prasann enjoyed a day of sightseeing in Munich before his return flight to India.
