For the fourth consecutive year, Yogini Kaliji was a presenter at the Evolution Asia Yoga Conference in Hong Kong, held this year from June 6–9 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. Each year, more and more TriYoga students, teachers and friends from China and Taiwan are traveling to Hong Kong to attend Yogini Kaliji’s conference programs and to spend time with Yogini Kaliji and TriYoga family. This year included happy and excited TriYoga groups from Beijing, Dalian, Guangzhou, Lanzhou, Shenzhen, Xi’an, Zhenjiang, and Zhuhai, and a group of 19 students from Taiwan. The unique family atmosphere surrounding Yogini Kaliji and the large TriYoga group is truly special, and was noted by the conference manager.
Yogini Kaliji taught 5 program over 4 days at the conference: a 3-hour Art and Science workshop, and 2-hour workshops focusing on Fire Flow, Air Flow, Prana Vidya, and Mudra. Most of Yogini Kaliji’s programs were filled to capacity, and the two programs held in the largest conference halls each had over 60 attendees. Demand for the Prana Vidya workshop was so great that conference organizers made an exception to their capacity limits, allowing 70 attendees fill the room.

There was ample opportunity to spend time with Yogini Kaliji outside of the conference as well. One evening was spent at the Hong Kong studio of TriYoga student and friend Ken, where teachers and students shared beautiful testimonials about how TriYoga had changed their lives.
Another evening was spent at Greenwoods Raw Cafe in Tsim Sha Tsui. Led by tour guide Ken, Yogini Kaliji and the TriYoga group rode the famous Star Ferry across Victoria Harbor and stopped for pictures along the Kowloon public pier. Pictured above are Yogini Kaliji and TriYoga teachers with very long hair—it has been shown that long hair leads to increased intuition!
The restaurant opened specially for Yogini Kaliji and the TriYoga group. Restaurant owner Dr. Simon Chau wanted to meet Yogini Kaliji, and was present during the meal to introduce himself, the staff, and his restaurant. Dr. Simon also played harmonica, and joined Ken and Alexey to form the ‘house band’. Many of those in attendance provided entertainment!
