Intense, heat, energy, and play. These are the words I use to describe this wonderful practice.
Definitely advanced but fun to try even at intermediate level.

Wow, I just found you and I'm in love already with your style of practice. I'm missing my studio right now and feeling grateful to have stumbled upon this offering. Thanks Fiji! Namaste.

Consider myself intermediate and this was a great class that gives me something to work on. Not yet able to do a headstand or the pose where you are on your hands in the squat and then shoot your legs out in front of you. Excited to work towards success there. Thank you for helping me not miss my studio during this time. (don't tell them I said that :)

I love the longer holds of poses in this class. Challenging and refreshing. I cannot do a headstand but the attempts are appreciated.

This was a bit scary, but not too scary. Good for intermediate yogis looking to up their game.

Powerful practice. I love the smooth, quickened pace of this class. I particularly appreciate your attention to detail, Figi. I find myself learning something new every class in regards to proper alignment and setting up for poses. It's brilliant! I'll come back to this class again to dig deeper! Thank you.

I have let way too much time go by in between sessions of this class. It's SO good.

I've run into a question near the end of the class - when we are doing that awesome dynamic twist/stretch on the floor, how active or relaxed should the pose be? As in... should I be using my core to encourage my hips and shoulders to be moving opposing directions? Or should this be more of a relaxed, gravity-driven twist? (Or maybe a little of both?)

Thank you so much for your classes, Fiji. You've set the bar very, very high as far as yoga teachers go. :)

Thank you for your wonderful comments and question. You are right about this twist being a little bit of both, effort in leaning and anchoring your base and surrender letting gravity do the "work" in the pose. In these twists I like to observe the changing sensations of the inhale and exhale, and I try to allow myself to move more deeply into the twist as I soften on the exhale.

I’ve been away from yoga for almost a year now. This class was great. Challenging and something I can work to master!
