Another great class from the challenge! This one felt particularly challenging to me, especially in the thighs and quads during long periods of lunges. Any suggestions for building strength in that area? Sometimes it feels so intense, I have to come out of the lunge for a moment before jumping back in.

Hi Sarah. There are quite a few ways to strengthen the quads. One way is to keep holding lunges until your legs burn! Others include squats and walking up stairs with weights. I hope that helps.

Great workout, shame about the music. The constant high-pitched chord proves quite distracting... play another chord already!

This class is awesome and feels like just the right length. The practice felt very automatic for me, which was also cool as I have grown stronger through this challenge. I really appreciate this website, as always :)

WOW, my body feels so good after all the stretches and twists we did today! The alignment of the hips that Fiji reminds us to do while in the prayer twists and through out the whole class was so helpful. Twisting out the intestines, the kidneys, and adrenal glands are all so good for the body and mine feels great. The longer holds were challenging, but I stayed with it using breath and trusted I was safe while pushing myself to the edge. Thank you Fiji and looking forward to tomorrow’s class. I am wising it would still go on after tomorrow, so I may just start over!! Namaste <3

This was exactly what I needed today! Nice combination of strength and stretching with all of the twists, so not too difficult, but not too easy either.

Invigorating!! Can't believe this challenge is done (first time around at least) tomorrow! Love these twists to wring out tension in the body!

Wonderful practice, Fiji! I feel cleansed and lightened from this practice! Thank you! See you tomorrow for Day Fourteen!

Really enjoyed this. Very challenging for me! But I can push myself and also accept where I am. Only one day left….I'll just go back to the beginning!

After a week of lighter yoga (due to hell week at theater) I will be doing the same!!
