I wasn't sure I had the energy to do day 5 on day 5 but I went ahead and tried. Boy am I glad I did. It was the exact stretch I needed to start the day and I had a lot of fun playing in the poses. Thanks again Fiji!

I struggle with some of the shoulder stretches due to an old injury, so I often shy away from the shoulder-based classes. However, I found this class incredibly challenging and rewarding - particularly mentally, because I just want to do everything and I know I run the risk of injury, so I have to learn to accept where I am. I loved the different transitions and the fun poses! Thank you!

Truly the hardest class for me so far in the challenge. I have a huge problem with balance, over all I loved it. I just need to work on balance a lot more! Thank you Fiji!

This was my favorite day of the challenge so far--I've been working on forearm stand so I appreciated the focus on shoulder strength and stability. I have very tight shoulders, so binds are particularly challenging and I tend to avoid them, but this class inspired me to keep working on them. I also loved trying two new-to-me poses--firefly and tortoise. Thank you for this great class, Fiji!

Looove this class!! This is closest to crow and firefly I've gotten in a year of self taught practice. The smile I have is taking over my entire face.. and attitude. Thank you, Fiji!

I'm continually in awe of Fiji's ability to communicate how to enter and explore each pose - she provides so much information in such a clear, concise and timely manner, what a gift. Thank you for day 5 of the challenge :)
