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?

Yes unfortunately I won't be able to do this workout again simply due to that infuriating background tone. Not very zen of me but hey

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.

Twists are always uncomfortable for me--as a 38 year old woman who has only been practicing yoga for a year, I feel like I will never have full flexibility in my spine, but I have seen some incremental improvements during the challenge. This is a class I plan to revisit regularly to really work on that area of weakness in my practice. Thanks for always inspiring me to accept where I am at the moment, Fiji!

Thanks to the foundation laid by first 12 days of class, I was able to flow through this challenging 13th day. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance, Fiji. Here's to my new favorite word - Namaste :-)

I achieved much better twists during this session because of the 12 consistent days of work leading up to it. There is truly no better way than to break up a day snowed in! Thank you for your clear and mindful instruction, Fiji. It's wonderful to see and feel such clear progress!

I really enjoyed this class. Normally I shy away from doing lots of twists (one, they are uncomfortable and two, I have Diastasis Recti so I read to avoid) but I really liked this flow. You explained everything great and I feel like I improved my twists. Thank you
