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.

Thank you again for a much needed day 2! I found it so beneficial to slow it down and remind myself of the fundamentals. Although savasana was interesting with the additional help of my cat using me as a sofa! ;) and a brilliant message for life to just slow it down, do it properly and have patience. Thank you :)

Glad you are all here on day 2! This class is a fundamental class focused on the most visited poses in vinyasa yoga and how to do them safely and with power. We get so accustom to moving in and out of these frames that we can get careless overtime. In a chalenge such as this doing poses that are not aligned well or done with strength and structure can lead to injury. I want you leaving this challenge felling amazing not injured so I dedicated this class to remembering the importance of the basics!

I have been doing a 31 day yoga challenge starting January 1st and this class was great to visit all of the poses we use so frequently. It was great to check in and strengthen these fundamentals! Beautiful class!

Not boring at all!!!! This was a great second class. Different pace than the first but static poses gave me the opportunity to really focus on the details and alignment . Thank you Fiji for the time and energy you put into each class!

This slow and deliberate class was a great way to focus on alignment in some common poses, and I found it very helpful to revisit Warrior I & II and Trikonasana with this level of attention. Thank you, Fiji!

It's always great to go through the basics and be reminded about proper form. Also, I was worried I was going to have to skip Day 2 because I had a long day at work and then a dinner with co-workers from out of town. I was so happy when I got home and saw that this was only a 30 minute class and that I could fit it in before I had to get my beauty sleep!
