The Philosophy Behind TriYoga
TriYoga puts a trinity emphasis on essential forces – the asana or posture, pranayama or breath and mudra or focus. Each force can exist without the other, but the best practice incorporates all three. The three important forces are married together during practice, resulting in a series of very intricate yet elegant poses which are done in a flowing and rhythmic nature.
The fundamentals of TriYoga practice include the following:
-Slow, wavelike spinal undulations emphasizing on moving one vertebra at a time.
-Economy of motion, where stillness and focus is encouraged by eliminating unnecessary and excess movements. This preserves precise alignment in between and during postures.
-Relaxation during action, requiring practitioners to engage only the muscles needed for each posture and relaxing all other muscles.
Each asana is performed with proper breathing and deep meditation. In fact, the whole session feels like a dance all throughout the body.
Kali Ray TriYoga follows a very systematic approach. The practice is comprised of seven levels, starting with the Basics. Beginners start with the basics, where they learn fundamental movements and simple breathing techniques. As soon students finish and master the sequence of asanas for a certain level, they can move to the next level until finally reaching Level 7.
