In day two, Fiji takes time with each yoga pose to ensure that you are doing them properly, as you progress through the fourteen days. Slowing down the vinyasa flow, spending more time in poses like plank, chaturanga, trikonasana and bridge pose allows her to cue the muscles that should be active, creating a more solid pose and preventing injury.

I had no idea I'd let my form get so lax until I started through this workout. I had a shoulder injury early in the year that required me to make some adjustments to my yoga routines, and I noticed today that I'm still doing some of those shifts in my form. And, then there were the places where I was just lazy with my form. This brought my attention to where it needed to be even when I wanted to protest. As I breathed through my protests I discovered new strength and flexibility as well as just how well my shoulder has healed. Great routine. I'm going to make a note of this one to return to whenever my form gets a bit lax!

Great tune-up for poses that I do all the time and have gotten a little sloppy with. Fiji's instructions are precise and easy to follow and I immediately felt a lot more stability. Loved the cues about forward folds - wow, what a difference I felt! Thanks!

I really appreciate the detailed instruction with some of these poses we do so often, especially chaturanga, which i clearly needed to correct. Thanks Fiji.

Hi Fiji,
I took about a month off from yoga, unintentionally, just due to other commitments crowding my days, and guess what ... I felt worse by the week. I am returning via the 14-day challenge and I am so happy to see you. Thank you so much for sharing your practice here.

Namaste,

Lisa

I really appreciated the work on fine tuning the poses. It was perfect for today--I've been doing warm and heated Dharma which is wonderful, but also strenuous, which can lead to slipping in form. I love working with you in the morning to start my day! Namaste.

Thank you, Fiji! I have never had the biomechanics of the basic poses explained so thoroughly. This is so helpful in moving forward safely! Great foundational session!
