Kaliji offered programs in New Orleans the weekend of April 17-18, teaching 2 TY sessions at Elmwood Fitness Center, and held satsanga at the TriYoga Center of New Orleans on Sunday evening.
The first session began with a talk by TY teacher Madan Rivera on medical statistics proving the power of pranyama, yoga and vegan diet.
Sunday evening satsanga ~ the TriYoga Center had to change its location after Hurricane Katrina. This year, the TYC was able to move back in to the original space that had been affected by the hurricane, and the teachers and .students happily welcomed Kaliji back. Kaliji’s joyful chanting was accompanied by the drumming talent of Mercury Max. In between chants Kaliji gave talks that reached everybody’s minds and hearts.
