Great medicine for the shoulders. I didn't even know how much tension I had in my shoulders, but this one found all the spots and gave them some love. Good strengthening poses too. Best of both worlds, thanks to Fiji :)

Great shoulder practice with lots of variety in the stretches. I'll keep working on my crow pose, but I will get there.

Thanks Fiji.

What an enormously fun and rewarding class! There aren't many repetitions, which I personally love - the entire class kept me on my toes (and hands!). Fiji is an excellent teacher, and today I found myself able to do crow pose and firefly pose for the first time with relative ease. This class is definitely one that I'll be returning to when I want to waken up my arms and shoulders. A truly lovely experience.

Such a great class to gain stability in my shoulders. I was struggling with my balance in crow for the longest time, but after today's class was finally able to balance in it for a good 5 seconds !

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.
