Learn the TriYoga Method
TriYoga is a complete hatha yoga method which includes asana, pranayama, mudra, visualization and meditation techniques, all systematized by level. The TriYoga method comes from founder Yogini Kaliji’s direct ongoing experience of kriyavati siddhi – kundalini energy manifesting as hatha yoga sequences – characterized by smooth rhythmical breath, spinal waves and focused awareness. Unifying prāṇāyāma and mudra with dynamic and sustained asanas expands the flow of Prāṇā.
TriYoga principles include relaxation-in-action, wave-like spinal movements and economy of motion. With the systematic approach, students can remain with Basics or progress to subsequent levels. Within each level, students increase their knowledge of posture and flow, as well as strength, flexibility, endurance and breath control. Through sustained awareness on all aspects of the practice, the movement of body, breath and mudra harmonize and the inner flow of energy naturally emerges.
Our goal is to train competent and confident teachers. Our graduates leave the program knowing a minimum of 5 different class flows, and most importantly, how to lead a safe class and modify for individual students. The training is done over 10 or more months to give you time to acquire the knowledge and teaching skills you need to become a successful teacher. Those who need extra time to develop teaching skills will be given the extra support. Graduation is based on proficiency. When you graduate you will be ready to teach.
The Techniques training covers the five primary series of Basics. You will gain a deep understanding of alignment, breath control, focus and precise transitions synchronizing breath and movement. Patanjali defines yoga as the control of the thought waves of the mind. When yoga is practiced with focus and awareness the obstacles to the flow of energy are removed and first three kośas – the physical, the energetic and the mental/emotional layers of our being – come into balance, connecting us to our intuitive knowledge and the body of bliss. The practice is healing and transformative.
Techniques trainings are appropriate for those who wish to deepen their practice as well as those who wish to teach.
