Wonderful. Feeling weak in my forearms for those balance poses. Suggestions welcome.

I loved the pacing and flow of the class. Great balance between flow, strength, and stretching. So, so lovely. Definitely worth repeating this one even after I finish the 14-day challenge!

This class felt wonderfully challenging, stretching my practice to new places with the forearm balances. And also beautifully rounded, a offering a great range. I don't feel like I am done with it. Thank you Fiji.

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 :)

I have been practicing yoga for 10 years now and this class had me going whaaaaat?! haha this is a wonderful class and a great 14 day challenge that I recommend for everyone!

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.

During this time of quarantine, this yoga challenge has brought a smile to my face every day. Your classes are dynamic and engaging. You're an excellent teacher and I appreciate DYWM offering these videos for free. Thank you so much and namaste.

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 !
