Fiji is amazing. I love all her classes, this one for the legs in particular. Please note: Older yogis should be careful when squatting the pelvis over forced-arched toes (tucked toes). I bruised my foot doing this -- just muscle, not joints, but that position is very hard for older yogis.

Fiji does it again! Wow... my legs feel worked but also energized and balanced. I feel tremendous peace after doing strength with Fiji... and sweaty! I love it! Thank you!

Excellent workout; seems a bit difficult for level II though, or maybe I just need to work on my strength :)
Fiji I appreciated the flow of this practice and as always your excellent instruction. I will try this one again!

Loved this one. As usual Fiji guides us with calm, strong information. Often reminds us to ask our self why we are going into the next level of the pose. 😊

More of a general question, but it seems appropriate to ask here: practice often demands that the feet be parallel. This feels awkward for me: my legs immediately tell me they want to rotate outwards slightly. It's not painful, just a bit of a pull, and I find it hard to find strength in such a stance.
Is that intended and I just go with it, or should I listen to my legs and adjust the stance?

Thank you Fiji. This was a straightforward practice with unhurried pacing and just enough cueing. Just what I needed as I'm recovering from a head cold/congestion. I definitely didn't feel rushed or frustrated when I had to modify the balancing poses.

Fiji, your teaching style -- a lovely guiding voice combined with poses I am years away from perfecting -- gets me to want to keep trying instead of giving up because it is hard.

Awesome class. Going to help build strength in my runner's legs for sure! Can't wait to continue the series (but I'm going to have to at least until tomorrow!)

a 5 out of 5 as usual. I do feel very firmly planted on my feet now. In fact, I feel that my body consists primarily of the foundation, and whatever I have above the belly line is a feeble addition to the foundation :) I look forward to building up the "addition".

I really loved this class and this series but I do agree with some of the other comments about the level not being totally accurate, many of the classes felt more challenging than the usual Intermediate II...?

labeling a class is really tricky to do both online and in studio. There are not really too many advanced poses in this class, so it is hard to label as advanced. It does require stamina as you noticed but that is something that many intermediate students are bulding in their regular pracitce. This could be something to work up to for sure.

Challenging indeed! Now I am motivated to do this practice more often to build up stamina, if I can walk again that is. :)

This IS a great class, but labeling it as Intermediate II is misleading and inaccurate. This kind of endurance is really fairest to ask of Advanced yogis.

Fun, invigorating, smooth, and totally accessible sequence. Thank you, Fiji! I found this series late so I did Day 5 first, but now I want to make my way through the entire series :)

I've been trying to figure out how to get more strength oriented workouts into my life since I stopped going to the gym during Covid, and this practice definitely fits the bill. Looking forward to trying the rest of the series!

One of the lessons that I've learned from your practices is to be grateful for wellness and ability, since they're not always readily there, nor should they be taken for granted. Your practices always honor whatever ability we bring to the asanas. Thank you Fiji!

Timeline means I'm a bit late. Just want to say what a challenge this was for me. I hope I can walk tomorrow. This is going to be a regular for me. I would love to be strong enough to complete it with more grace. Thankyou Fiji.

I was questioning my own sanity in scheduling this for the same day that I'd done a hilly 19k run in the morning, but in fact my stiff hip flexors were extremely grateful. Thank you Fiji!

The pace and instructions are clear and easy to follow. I hardly ever look at the screen during Fiji's classes. Just breath, listen and follow the instructions. Thank you.
