After completing the Chiemsee retreat, Yogini Kaliji’s summer tour continued with a week at Yoga Vidya in Bad Meinberg, Germany. This year the retreat was attended by over 70 students and teachers, who enjoyed the opportunity to spend six and a half hours each day in class with Kaliji and satsang each evening with Kaliji and Chant Club.
The Bad Meinberg retreat is a fun and special TriYoga family event and reunion. 🙂 This summer marks 13 years since Kaliji’s first visit to Europe—the beginning of the second twelve-year cycle—and the 11th consecutive Bad Meinberg retreat. Many of the participants attend Bad Meinberg every year, and there is a wonderful sense of familiarity and relaxation at the retreat which is a complement to the freshness, innovation, and creativity of Kaliji’s teaching.
The beginning of each morning session was dedicated to Prana Vidya. Kaliji’s masterfully guided flow classes brought the flow to all levels of students. Mercury Max joined the end of each yogaflow session to chant mantra during Yoga Nidra.
Afternoon sessions began with Jnana Flow and Q&A. Topics included Yoga Sutras and Mudra Vidya.
Chant Club performed during evening satsanga with Kaliji on lead vocals and harmonium, Mercury Max on percussion and vocals, and Bernie on guitar. The inspired and energized performances filled the room with the Chant Club dancers!
