Definition - What does TriYoga mean?

TriYoga® is a type of hatha flow created by Yogini Kaliji (Kali Ray). The name comes from TriYoga's® focus on three specific components: asana, pranayama and mudra. The essentials of the TriYoga® practice are:

  • Wave-like spinal movements that take yogis through asana sequences (yogaflow®)
  • "Relaxation in action," which is the specific and selective engagement of muscles needed for each asana
  • Accurate pose alignment that reduces excess or unfocused movements
  • The incorporation of pranayama and mudras into the practice

Yogapedia explains TriYoga

TriYoga® is practiced in seven levels, beginning with what is called "basics," where students focus on learning 108 postures that are practiced in a flowing sequence. Once the 108 postures are learned, yogis may choose to move on to the next level of practice.

The benefits of TriYoga® are said to include:

  • Increased self-awareness
  • Increased energy flow (physical, mental and spiritual)
  • Mental clarity
  • Strengthened spine
  • Healing the nervous system
  • Increased flexibility and strength
