wonderful challenge

Thank you for the terrific instruction at all stages of this class. I have done headstand many times before but have never felt so clear in using my shoulders and forearms. I was definitely challenged by the class, as I have lost most of my upper body strength in the last few months. Fiji is a great instructor and this website is such a gift.

Great class

Beautiful and inspirational class. Thank you Fiji.


a really really great video, a beautiful addition to my day, and the perfect way to strengthen my practice today. Thank you!

wonderful tips

Thanks Fiji.

always learning

That was great! Although I can do headstand, there's some fantastic tips in it, and a great workout. Nice one Fiji!

Great class

I've done this a couple of times now and really like it, it's a great class for building strength in arms and shoulders! I'm looking forward to being able to raise my legs with practice. Thanks Fiji

Progressing to Headstand

Great class. I will try to do it on a regular basis, twice a week and hopefully it will help me with my headstand. Thank you Fiji.

Lovely class and first successful forearm headstand

What a beautiful class. Nice, gentle music, clear instructions. I did my first ever successful headstand without having to jump or push my legs up! Thanks :)

Great class! Managed my first

Great class! Managed my first successful (albeit short) full forearm inversion. Love having these videos at home - I skip all of the inversions other than crow in group classes because I don't want to fall on anyone. Today, I just toppled over into the bookshelf. I will definitely be coming back to this once my arms and shoulders get over how sore they are undoubtedly going to be.

A funny thing happened

So, I'm there enjoying my shavasana after this wonderful practice, I'm all in the moment, when a mosquito comes buzzing around my ear, and ruins the moment. Now I have to do it all over again.
