Founded by yogini Kali Ray, TriYoga is a systematic method that includes the full spectrum of traditional yoga practices. TriYoga’s hatha yoga method, TriYoga Flows, is the union of postures, breath, and focus—that is asana, pranayama, and mudra. By the nature of its origin, this practice is deeply meditative, promoting relaxation and inner peace. The method is as therapeutic and gentle or as challenging as desired because the flows are systematized by level. Students may progress from basics to advanced levels increasing their flexibility, strength, endurance, and knowledge of the flows. Bolsters, pillows and other props can be used in all levels to ensure comfort and alignment.

These flowing posture sequences, integrated with the controlled breath and focused mind, give profound benefits to those who practice regularly. By bringing these benefits into one’s daily life, greater physical, mental, and spiritual prosperity is attained.

TriYoga Basics

For those new to TriYoga and for those who want to strengthen their core alignments, Basics is an accessible practice for students of all levels. Classes begin with a brief breathing practice followed by a posture flow. The flows are designed to develop equal measures of strength and flexibility while guiding students towards blissful relaxation. Modified postures and props such as blocks, bolsters, and blankets are incorporated to ensure comfort and proper alignment. Classes conclude with yoga nidra, deep relaxation.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa Yoga is a series of dynamic poses that involves synchronizing the breath with a continuous flow of postures. Students will focus on linking conscious breath with a vigorous and mindful flow. The focus will be on building strength, flexibility and concentration while cleansing the body and calming the mind.

Yoga Core, Stretch & Balance

This class will make you feel stronger by using yoga poses to build up core strength and better balance. By being stronger in these areas you will have better confidence to move more freely, transfer from floor to standing, sitting to standing and better maneuvering through everyday obstacles. Classes done with 2-5 lbs. weights, you must bring your own weights.

Yoga Flow-Ashtanga-based

The intention of the Ashtanga form is to allow practitioners to develop their own practice, bringing the focus to yoga as an individual, internal experience, rather than as a process through which we must be led. Students practice their own portion of the asana sequence at their own pace, while the teacher assists each student one-on-one. This style welcomes beginners and advanced practitioners.

Yoga For Abs

Yoga For Abs will target the core area of the body. Strengthening the core through yoga helps stabilize the back and gives core support to the entire body.
