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)
