Kali Ray – TriYoga

Yogini Kaliji (Kali Ray) is an internationally renowned yogini and the founder of TriYoga. Kaliji travels extensively, having already taken TriYoga to over 37 countries worldwide, with its home-base being Santa Cruz, California. Kaliji will be landing on local Durban shores soon, presenting workshops and yoga training that invoke her knowledge, systemised methods and mastery of yoga flow into a fantastic three-day event.  

TriYoga’s flowing sequences are characterised by “rhythmic pacing”, “relaxation-in-action”, “wave-like spinal movements” and “economy of motion” that all work together to generate a greater flow of prana. The asanas are designed to “flow without thought” and incorporate different “turns” that enable the entire practice to flow seamlessly.

In anticipation of her upcoming South Africa visit, Complete Yoga directs some principal questions Kaliji’s way…

Why have you decided to come to South Africa? Is this your first visit?
Long term TriYoga teachers, Bindu & Shaun, have been teaching TriYoga here for the past 5 years. They invited me to meet those who have been practicing TriYoga. This is my first visit to South Africa and to the African continent.

What is TriYoga and on what principles was it developed?
In the tradition of ancient yoga, the origin and continuing development of TriYoga is guided by kriyavati siddhi, or kundalini-inspired yoga. I began to experience this January 5, 1980. It continues through today. From this inner guidance, TriYoga is a systematised and complete method of yoga, including asana, pranayama and over 1000 hasta (hand) mudras. TriYoga unites pranayama and mudra with dynamic and sustained asanas to create greater flow of prana. The art and science of yogaflow, the practice, has the inherent characteristics of rhythmic breath, relaxation-in-action, wavelike spinal movements and economy of motion.

The breath is central to your teaching and practice. What role does pranayama play in yoga practice and how do you teach it?
The breath is central to TriYoga practices. TriYoga Prana Vidya, the knowledge of life energy, includes the trinity of pranayama, dharana and dhyana (breathing practices, concentration techniques and meditation). Practitioners can remain with basic practices, always deepening, or continue to expand their practice systematically through seven levels.

The goal of yoga practice is the experience of meditation. How does the manifestation of meditation happen through yoga practice?
The two great aspects in creation are consciousness and energy. The primary purpose of yoga sadhana is to increase the flow of prana. As this energy increases, awareness expands. This evolves into meditation, the flow of sattvic (pure) mental energy, expanding consciousness. Like fuel is used to make a journey, prana is needed for the inner journey. Energy is refined and increased through various TriYoga techniques, including yogaflow (trinity of yogasana, pranayama, mudra), prana vidya, vegan diet, nada yoga, and karma yoga.
