14-Day Yoga Challenge: Day Fourteen

Intermediate III

On day fourteen, Fiji brings the challenge to a peak, taking you through a tough power yoga flow that is full of wonderfully satisfying yoga poses, like deep back bends and forward folds, arm and foot balances, shoulder openers and core work. It's the perfect way to finish 14 days straight of you with Fiji!

I really enjoyed the progression of this challenge and practicing with the same teacher every day. I felt stronger, more flexible and better balanced with each class, wheel pose will have to be a work in progress. Thank you Fiji for putting it all together!

Today was a difficult day for me, but I did this practice as I'm ending the day and it was perfect. I feel so much better now. Namaste Fiji!

We (my wife and I) thank you for this 14 Day Challenge ... as a couple of aging geriatrics ... thank you. We 'double-up' taking 28 - 30 days to do your 14 day challenge!
True, doing the 'wheel' pose did not quite happen but maybe another time. Looking forward to joining you on your 'subscriber' intermediate challenge.
Peace ...

Believe I did this challenge several years, Fiji, but second time around it is much more empowering than the first. Thank you for that incredibly transformative series - namaste!

Wow. Fabulous series. I have so much love and gratitude for you, Fiji, and DYWM for sharing your gifts. Yoga can be life-changing and I do believe it may just the kind of change our world needs right now. Keep it coming and we will keep showing up to do the work with you. Namaste.

Fantastic series. Each class and the sequence is varied so I was never bored and always challenged. I like the honesty - crow pose doesn't feel comfortable for anyone - and the gentle words of encouragement. I may do the whole series again - I definitely improved but think a second time around would bring more results. Thank you.

I loved every one of these classes! the level was exactly what i was looking for: i felt challenged at every class but confident about my abilities and the new stength i have just built! The sequences Fiji builds are physically challenging but also interesting intellectually because they really work your sense of awareness of your body throughout the challenge. My shoulders are so much stronger than they were at the begining! Thank you so much for leading me through this challenge!

Second time through, loved this challenge--every practice I ended with a heartfelt "Thank you, Fiji." I purchased the full challenge for when I can't stream the video and will be doing it again.

I really enjoyed this 14 day challenge. Day 14 was excellent, except the video kept cutting out at 25/26 minutes in, which was really frustrating. I don’t know if it was the Wi-Fi or the video, but I was determined to see it through to the very end. It was just enough of a challenge that I couldn’t do everything but I was so almost there. I definitely feel stronger. I am also thankful that I have had this opportunity. Many thanks Fiji, I love your clear, calm instructions and your choice of poses and your focus on gratitude at the end of the sequences.. Namaste.

I started this before Covid-19 really took off. How dramatically different life is in just 2 weeks. This challenge has kept me grounded and given me something to look forward to every morning. Fiji, you remain one of the best teachers I have encountered in my life. I hope to join DYWM for a retreat some day. Until then, I will keep looking for routines that stretch my body (and soul) and allow for that extra deep breath that is unique to being on the mat. Thank you!

This challenge is so amazing!!! I felt so strong and capable in this practice today, it was incredible. I agree with someone else in the comments here that I appreciate that the classes in this challenge are all under an hour. I do like longer practices on the weekends when I have more time, but with these shorter lengths, I never have an excuse not to fit the practice into my day one way or another. Thank you again and again Fiji and DYWM, you have enriched my life so much, and facilitated so much healing and discipline for me.

Fiji, I did it. unbelievable. When I try a 30 day challenge, usually give up around the halfway point. So 14 days, I'll try that. It took a little over a month. Can't do tough classes every day. Have to rest a day. I'm a little over weight and just turned 71. I think it is your way of teaching that kept me going. A few of the poses were impossible, but you tell us to hold off if we have to. And I have a chair next to the mat to help with the balance poses. Actually held a crow for a few seconds. Probably the first time in thirty years. Been doing yoga off and on over 50 years. I find that I need it now more than ever. DYWM is the best site and you're my favorite. I carry you in my heart. Thank You

This was an excellent intermediate challenge and I really appreciate Fiji's talent and passion in instruction! The classes were enjoyable - even some of the more challenging poses that I was more than a few millimeters away from accomplishing! One of the aspects that worked best for me was keeping the classes under an hour; I find it difficult to complete anything longer in my time slot for yoga right when I get out of bed in the morning. Thank you, Fiji and DYWM, for a great challenge!

This class was challenging and fun. I was excited to try the arm balance and I was able to lift my ankle on top of my foot!! I wasn’t quite getting my legs to shoot out, but it felt so good to work on something new and go with where I was and not beat myself for not getting it and just enjoying the experience. The flow and the creativity of the poses were all super and my body feels open and cleansed. I just loved this whole series and could feel my body getting stronger, I was pushed to try more challenging poses, and released tight areas. Fiji is such wonderful teacher. Her instructions for all poses through out the series are so helpful. Thank you Fiji for putting this all together for all of us and sharing your gifts. Thank you to Do Yoga With Me for making this possible. Namaste <3. :-)

I've done this challenge a couple times already, but this last time I was joined by my husband of 25 years! He is fairly new to yoga but an excellent athlete (decathlete actually). He coaches track and I teach Zumba, so we certainly both need our mat time, and can put some of these poses into our practices and routines to see how well they benefit all! Thank you FIJI and we have vowed to one day attend one of your retreats in PERSON!

Just finished this 14-day practice again and loved it. Even if I had to skip a day due to illness, I completed it. Though some poses still as yet escape me, others are more natural and comfortable than ever. I am happy! Thank you FIJI!!!

I've found this a wonderful challenge, just the right pace - although I have to admit its taken longer than 14 days (I had an excuse for a break..)... Now I feel I need to start over to try to do it in one go. It's curious, so many days of 1-on-1 practice, as the final Namaste comes around, I feel you as a personal friend. Namaste!

Amazing challenge. I've just finished my 14 days of yoga but will start all over again in a couple of days. The benefits were incredible, I can finally do a wheel pose after months of trying and look forward to working on the many poses that still elude me. Round two will be something I will be looking forward to in the morning. HUGE THANKS FIJI for being so precise, encouraging and inspiring as a teacher!

Thank you so much to Fiji and to DYWM for this great challenge! Was great to have a series of videos that built on each other and culminated in this class. Thanks again and I hope to see more of these challenges in the future, while appreciating the effort and care it takes to make them!

I just finished my 14 days. I felt ready for this challenge after I did the beginners 30 day challenge in January. It was an amazing way to learn more about myself, to build up strength and courage and to see where I could get by practicing on and on. I am quite proud of myself and I am so grateful for these beautiful videos, for your gentle way of teaching and for making me smile when you bent effortlessly into a new pose that was yet out of reach for me.

I did it!!!
Fourteen day intermediate challenge, and this one was QUITE the challenge, especially after a very long day at theater. Some of the balancing poses will be better met the next time around, but I am excited to see what is coming. Ah.... now on to a more relaxed week during theater hell week, then I will start this challenge over again to see improvement. I love yoga! (I just don't know how Fiji so calmly speaks throughout the whole practice!!) :)

I have been doing DYWM classes almost every day since the spring and they are all wonderful. Still, this series is a step up from me just picking a class every day. About half way through I was noticeably stronger and more flexible; I feel like I'm better at the poses, too--hips pointing the right way, tailbone pointing to the ground, etc. I look forward to each class because they are different and challenging. I actually got both feet off the ground in crow for a second! And, maybe more shockingly, I sort of like chair now. This is the second time through and it won't be my last. So happy to hear about the new challenge next year! Thanks DYWM!

This was a wonderful two week series - so perfect in length, so reasonable to fit in my schedule yet challenging and producing tangible differences in my strength especially. I would love to have a 2nd 14 day-challenge to do now, but am also happy to redo this one! Or perhaps a series of classes already on DYWM could be put together as a series? It was incredibly helpful to have these classes in sequence as they built on each other. A thousand thanks to you, Fiji, and DYWM for this wonderful resource.

for this wonderful challenge Fiji and DYWM. I feel stronger, especially on my upper body. I can now do the chaturanga much better, so happy! :) And completing a 2-weeks program strengthened my discipline for home practices.
As many other users, I myself plan to visit this challenge again and again!:)
