After 10 days of programs in Munich, Germany and Vienna, Austria, Yogini Kaliji completed her tour with a 72-hour visit to Moscow. The three week-day programs were wonderfully successful, with 80–95 students in each session. Yogini Kaliji has already been invited to return in May 2015!
Yogini Kaliji was greeted at the airport by a group of happy students! Pictured here are students from across Russia—Moscow, Barnaul (Siberia), Nevinnomyssk (Caucus), and Chelyabinsk.
To Yogini Kaliji’s right is Shaktidas, director of TriYoga Center Moscow. Shaktidas organized Yogini Kaliji’s Moscow programs for 22 years, and this year had the chance to attend the programs as a student.
Each four-hour session began with an hour-long jnana and Q&A program, followed by a TriYoga flow class.
A group of students from the TriYoga Center in Brovary, Ukraine travelled to Moscow and brought Yogini Kaliji a gift of traditional Ukranian clothing.
The “program after the program”—lots of hugs, photos and excitement as students greet Yogini Kaliji.
This year, Yogini Kaliji’s visit was organized for the first time by the team of Uliana and Max. They did a beautiful job from start to finish with the program, venue, accommodations, transportation, advertisement and promotion.
New Basics teacher Vlada from Odessa, Ukraine! Vlada began her TriYoga study with Alexey (right), and completed her teacher training online with Ganga and Katya. Alexey offered alignment assistance during each of Yogini Kaliji’s programs, and is now teaching in China at TriYoga Center Shenzhen (Nanshan).
Ganga (pictured with her brother) coordinated her family visit to Moscow with Yogini Kaliji’s visit and offered translation for the entire program. Ganga returned to the USA with Yogini Kaliji and assisted at Yogini Kaliji’s birthday celebrations at TriYoga Center of Central Pennsylvania.
Santoshi and John accompanied Yogini Kaliji from Europe to Moscow and offered alignment assistance. After Yogini Kaliji departed Moscow, Santoshi and John remained to offer a Basics teacher training and a weekend workshop.
