I had been feeling a little bit spent after a busy week plus the yoga challenge, so I was not really looking forward to the class. But it turned out to be just what I needed! Loved the shoulder focus and slow, steady pace.

I can feel my shoulders getting stronger with each class, and today I thought I finally found the tipping point of balance in the crow pose for .5 second which is an amazing feeling! Thank you once again xx

Another excellent class, I found myself increasingly focused on the present moment, not worrying about what new challenging pose Fiji might have in store for us next.

I enjoyed the shoulder focus here - I have had some neck and shoulder issues and I have been working on strengthening this area for a while. I love the strong focus on alignment and safety in the poses that Fiji always has. Thank you for this!

I've always been fearful of full balancing poses or stands. But this class helped me to go further, slowly, trusting that maybe one day, if it's right, I might be able to do Crow pose or Wheel. I'm halfway there, and if that's where I stay, that'll be OK. I know what it feels like to not be able to get out of bed because of back pain, so I'm sure that is where some of my trepidation comes from. But that also informs my caution and why I listen more to what my body is telling me. My wonky knee and one of my wrists were speaking to me this morning, so I was happy not to do any deep lunges or full Chaturangas (though I'm doing more planks to increase my wrist strength. Thanks for the tip, Fiji!) I'm learning so many things with this challenge :)
