Participants of all levels enjoyed the energy flow of daily multi-level practice.
Kaliji offered demonstrations of “coming attractions” — Level 4 and 5 flows that have been given through the magic of Kriyavati.
In addition to TriYoga Flows and Prana Vidya, special topics were offered each day. In answer to a student question about Sanskrit posture names, Kaliji responded by showing the completed list of Basics posture names in Sanskrit.
Kaliji also gave presentations on mudra. Here, senior teacher Urvasi assists her partner Keith in cin mudra.
