This is one of the most beautiful classes I have ever done. I felt a happiness and presence in a way that I have not felt in a long time upon completion. My shoulders, which I struggle with are so open and filled wth space and grace now. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Namaste.

Absolutely loved this class doing the 14 day challenge for the second time however this is the first time I have actually managed to do 5 days in a row - as with my work schedule it is a bit challenging at times to find the time. I can really feel the strength building up in the shoulders and even more so my balances are getting so much better quickly - and todays practice made we work up a quite a sweat but just loved it as it was so energizing. Thank you !!!!!

The description of this class is so right on! It was challenging, but fun!! In all my years of yoga I had not done Tortise pose and boy did that feel great and hadn’t done Fire Fly pose in years and that was fun. It was fun to attempt it and then to actually allow my legs to go out and fly and then I was flying so much that I fell backward on to my butt!! Crow pose has been a long time goal of mine and it seems to be a tough one for me. I think it is a trust issue and falling forward on my head. With Fiji’s instruction these poses are doable, plus the creative flow and poses leading up to these arm balances really help one get prepared!! Thanks Fiji for another great day in the series. Namaste <3. :-)

I found this routine challenging but I felt more confident that I can eventually get into some of the more arm centric poses. I've always struggled with those more than other poses! Fiji does such an amazing job of describing the poses and guiding the students through them. I decided to do this challenge simply because it meant 14-days of not needing to decide on my routine each morning, but I'm so glad I did. The challenge is pushing me to recognize my limits and where I can push against them safely.

My new favorite class! Oh my gosh! This class left me feeling so incredibly wonderful and full of energy! I love all of the flows and I love the great variety of poses that Fiji gives us. The ending the poses were phenomenal as well! I did the 14 day challenge over year ago and I don’t remember this class-which is very weird. I love it now and plan on doing it often . Thanks for putting it in your new get strong challenge, so that I was able to revisit it and truly appreciate it! Thanks again for all you do for the world of yoga!

A nice mix of balance and strength - firefly and crow poses are included, and modifications offered. Good pace. I really enjoyed the creative flows in the first start of the practice. Thank !
