This is the second 14 day challenge that my daughter and I are doing with you and it has been a life saver during this global crisis. It has helped keep my daughter and I connected even though with we are far apart. We are loving each class, getting stronger every day and want to thank you for your grounded and graceful teaching.

I am really enjoying the 14 day challenge - enabling me to focus on holding good poses and challenging me on already familiar poses. Thank you to doyogawithme and Fiji for this day.

I did this on a roll-out-of-bed-and-onto-my-mat day and the pace and intensity was just right. The first poses felt stiff but I enjoyed observing my body gently lengthen and open. A surprisingly comprehensive class for its short length - I will be doing this one again!

What an opener!! I am so thrilled to note how much space I have in my body and how straight I can get my legs in those holds! Improvement is nice to note. Thank you!

I absolutely love the way Fiji teaches. She is challenging, yet gentle. She eases you into your poses in such a way that encourages both your development AND avoids injury! T

Just finished day 6 with it's delicious much needed stretching. I'm loving this challenge. It gives me the incentive to get to my mat every morning with out fail and something to work towards. I love the progression and can really feel the improvements. Thank you so much Fiji. Well structured, good length and great instruction. Namaste.

I am surprised at my progress! Of course I hoped I would have positive results, but I nevr thought would experience real changes so quickly. I love the creative approach that serves a real purpose.

Today I could definitely feel my ribs after yesterday's class so I'm glad today was a nice short one :)

Starting a Sunday with this class was just perfect, especially after the hustle and bustle of the week and the previous five days of classes. Feeling new openings and muscles loosen in hips, shoulders and legs really helps me to appreciate the progress I've been making. Another perfectly paced and pitched class from Fiji that was just long enough for my body to awaken while also knowing I had been challenged.

Great stretches and a wonderful choice for day 6! Thank you :)
Is it just me that can't do the cross-legged hop to plank though...? I think I tie my legs in a knot and any attempt to jump just ends in calamity... is there a "knack" to it, or just practice practice practice...??

So, today while at the store checkout line, I remembered a nice display of daffodils right outside the door. I told the clerk to hang on for a second while I grabbed a couple bouquets. It is another rainy day in the Northwest and not wanting to delay the people behind me, I didn't stop to dry my shoes while I hurried back in... with unfortunate and predictable results. I slipped, turning an ankle under, barely recovering my balance before really falling. My ankle tingled and I grimaced. I was sure I'd really hurt something . But then I recalled those nice ankle stretches towards the end of day 6 (last night for me) ... its a few hours later. I am sure my ability to react and avoid a seriously painful injury was due to my last year of regular yoga (mainly on this site). I still have a little tweak of pain in the arch of my foot .. but a year or so ago, I would not have been able to recover, shift weight quickly or have the flexibility in my ankle to come out of the fall without serious damage. I knew I'd need yoga to age well. Here is real proof.

Loved this. Even though I'm doing your 14 day challenge, I still went to my gym for Saturday yoga with my slave driver teacher (kidding, I really enjoy it, but its work!). So, this end of the day stretch was doubly nice.

After a year of practicing every other day, this 14 day challenge has really pushed me and created some (healthy) soreness, even though I regularly lift heavy weights as well. I can definitely feel the progress I'm making in my practice! Today's class was a welcome break from the more vigorous flow that really stretched out my legs and opened my hips. Another excellent class, and my only complaint was that it was over too soon. :) Thanks, Fiji!

Thi was a wonderful stretch! But, as I clasped both feet gracefully pulling them up to a lovely V, I rolled over backwards and wondered if day 15 could be a comic outtake video as our reward. This in addition to the amazing health benefits of course. ♥

This yoga challenge is so excellent, thank you Fiji. I feel more grounded in my practice and more confident. Also my shoulders and chest and heart are much more open. This was a great "break" with deep stretches that feel so good.

I loved it! It was what I needed after the first 5 days. It's said you need to do an activity during 21 days so it becomes an habit. Shouldn't we do a 21 yoga challenge? :)

I agree with the previous two comments. It was nice to focus on more gentle stretching after feeling a bit sore from the first five.

This being Day 6 in Fiji's 14-day yoga challenge, I so appreciated the gentle stretching and opening postures, as I was feeling a bit sore. A good sore, but sore nonetheless. I'm so loving this challenge – it's giving my yoga practice a real energy boost! Thank you, Fiji.
