TriYoga is a complete and revolutionary system based in ancient yoga. Experience the kundalini-inspired sequenced flow of yogasana (postures) synchronized with pranayama (rhythmic breath) and mudra (focus). The result is increased energy… physically, mentally, and spiritually. This gives the mental clarity to manifest one’s life with greater awareness.
TriYoga Flows is a complete hatha yoga method founded by Kali Ray. The inspiration and guidance for the TriYoga Flows comes from Yogini Kali Ray’s direct experience of kriyavati (kundalini manifesting on the plane of hatha yoga). In the TriYoga Flows, breath and focus are united with flowing and sustained postures in systematized sequences. The flows are comprised of poses that are categorized into seven main posture groups: Standing, Forward Bends, Spinal Twists, Backward Bends, Balancing, Inversions, and Sitting. Since the method is systematic, students can progress from Basics to Level 1 and then to subsequent levels as they increase their flexibility, strength, endurance and knowledge. Through sustained awareness on all aspects of the practice, the inner flow naturally emerges. This trinity practice is by the nature of its origin, deeply meditative and transformative.
Basics is suitable for those new to TriYoga or those who want a gentle, slow-paced class. Basics is a complete practice of 108 postures presented systematically, learned over time and is the foundation for TriYoga Flows. Focus is placed on moving with the breath, learning the wavelike motions of the spine and core strengthening movements. This level benefits everyone, beginners to advanced. Bolsters, pillows and props can be used to ensure comfort and correct alignment. There are 5 Basics primary series plus additional flows for a varied practice as well as a number of shortened sequences to help inspire a home practice.
L1 is suitable for students who have studied Basics and are ready to try a more challenging practice, or those who have had previous yoga experience. The earth element predominates in L1. Emphasis is on correct alignment, unwavering focus on the breath and expansion in all directions, laying a solid foundation for steady comfortable asanas. Each flow series is a complete practice. There are 5 L1 Primary series. Each series consists of 3 condensed class length versions, and a workshop length full series that combines all others. Including 5 additional 108 series, there are a total of 25 L1 series and numerous other flows that can be combined in countless ways to make for a complete and varied practice.
L2 is suitable for students who have studied L1 and who have mastered the wavelike spinal rolls. The water element is the focus of L2. The wavelike motions of the spine introduced in Basics and used throughout L1, naturally evolve into energy flows in L2. (Please note that Basics and L1 students can also experience the energy flows at each of those levels when one practices with a relaxed body, a rhythmical breath and a calm and focused mind.) When one dissolves into the flow synchronized with the breath, steady comfortable asanas emerge and dissolve in a manner that opens energy channels (nadis) and stimulates the flow of subtle energy. The L2 series follow the same structure as L1. There are 25 series and numerous other flows for L2.
L3 is a dynamic and challenging practice requiring strength, flexibility and endurance. It is suitable for strong L2 students and those who have knowledge of how to substitute asanas and transitions to maintain a safe and comfortable practice. The grounding and alignment of L1 and the steady and even-paced flow of L2 are maintained as more challenging asanas and flows are introduced. The L3 series follow the same structure as L1. There are 25 series and numerous other flows for L3.
