Once again, Kaliji traveled to Yoga Vidya, Europe’s largest yoga retreat, for a week-long immersion in TriYoga sadhana. Over 70 people from all over Europe attended – from senior teachers to those experiencing TriYoga flow for the first time.
Teachers and students enjoyed opening new areas and finding new ways to explore familiar postures.
They also enjoyed individual attention from Kaliji!
Every night, there was dancing…
and joyful chanting led by Kaliji, with Mercury Max adding his exciting rhythms (and amusing asides).
The beautiful room offered nature views, and space for all!
As always, Kaliji demonstrated perfect “relaxation in action” as she shared the flows.
Senior Teacher Urvasi Leone translated for flow classes and all jnana sessions…
and Senior Teacher Eva-Maria Beck translated flows and daily prana vidya practice.
Every session ended with Mercury Max chanting during yoga nidra
accompanied by Stef on harmonium.
During the week, there were classes held in a second classroom, offering students and teachers an opportunity for special classes in different levels.
Students enjoyed alignment assistance from Senior Teacher Stef,
Koln teacher Vandana
vegan chef extraordinaire Mitra Deva assisted in twists…
and made daily culinary creations for Kaliji.
Senior teacher John gave alignment assistance and teaching tips…
and teacher Antje helped students find their balance.
Antje and Vandana enjoy assisting every year…
and Stef and John love the chance to assist Kaliji with demonstrations!
Berlin TY Community member Perla shows Kaliji her new t-shirt
