A huge thank you to Fiji and David - for many months I have been struggling with headstand to the point that I would start to panic if I knew one was coming up, but today that finally changed! Your class was perfect! I did a headstand! And now finally understand the importance of stacking the body and pushing into the arms to lift rather than putting pressure on the head! Thank you so much - you have helped me overcome what really was becoming a barrier to my practice! I hope this message gives a positive boost to your day as your class did mine :D THANKYOU!

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.

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!

Thanks Fiji.

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

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

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.

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 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.
