Yogini Kaliji celebrated TriYoga’s 39th anniversary from January 2–6 with a program of TriYoga and Chant Club at UYoga in Shenzhen, China. On January 5th, over 100,000 online participants in China joined the TY39 celebrations live.
Kaliji and the TYI Team arrived in Shenzhen on Dec 31 and welcomed the New Year with Chinese TY teachers.
Kaliji was welcomed to UYoga with excitement and enthusiasm.
Kaliji offered two TriYoga sessions daily.
Daily jnana flow (yoga wisdom) with Kaliji included mantra and yoga sutras. She was joined by special guest Dr. Raghavendra Pai, a Samskrtam and yoga scholar from Mysore, India who has organized ten TriYoga yatras (teaching tours) with Kaliji in India. Dr. Pai taught students to chant the mantras and sutras, a perfect complement to Kaliji’s translations and philosophy.
Beginning January 4, Chant Club rocked for three successive nights with Kaliji on vocals and keyboard, Berni on guitar, and Prasann on tabla.
