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!

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!!

I love this series! I have gained so much strength, and even some balance which always challenging for me. It's really easy to motivate yourself to get to your mat when I'm curious to see what Fiji has for us next. Please do more!

I love this program! Thank you for bringing me back to the mat.

Is anyone hearing that single steady chord play throughout the practice? It stops nearer to the end during the lead into savasana. It has appeared musically in the background in one or two other days of these 14...it's a little off-putting. Am I the only one that notices it?

Every day I feel as though the classes cannot get any more rewarding, but today again was very special. Getting into twist poses provides a clear signal of how well I'm progressing. Better alignment, core strength and balance. Combined with lots of lunges really made my thighs burn, but I kept control and with that came confidence and peace of mind. As per other comments, I'll be sad to see the classes end tomorrow, but happy to know I'll just click home and start all over again! Thanks Fiji for putting so much time and effort into these classes.

I often find it more difficult to do yoga first thing in the morning - but today was quite packed, so it was 6.45am or not at all! I was amazed at how much freedom was created throughout the practice and how much strength has developed over the last 13 days. I'll be sad tomorrow when the challenge ends for me, and incredibly grateful for sharing this wonderful opportunity.
