Kaliji’s Europe tour completed with a retreat in Switzerland, August 27 – Sep 1. Organized by TriYoga teacher and Switzerland coordinator Carmen, the programs were held in the Alps above Lake Brienz at the Schweibenalp “Center for Peace”.
The sunny and warm weather at the beginning of the week was a delight! The retreat house is surrounded by natural gardens, walks and meditation areas.
Students enjoyed views of nature while practicing an all-levels flow.
Kaliji joined in Leg Stretch, inspiring all to continue to deepen their experience.
Prana Vidya was an emphasis during this retreat. The group split into four groups, Basics-L3, with each group led by Kaliji or senior teachers Eva-Maria, Stef and John.
Kaliji offered a presentation on mudra and displayed some of the newly completed mudra photos.
Each night featured chanting with Kaliji and Mercury Max, many dancers and “Musical Message Sayings” from Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji.

The day before the retreat ended, the weather changed dramatically as rain, low clouds and the cool alpine autumn appeared! Parting clouds revealed fresh snow and stunning mountain views.
