I love how even after years of almost daily use of this website, I still discover amazing videos that I have never tried before, this being one. This is a wonderful, challenging practice to get you sweating, focused and enjoying some nice deep releases in the IT band. Love it for a busy morning.

Gorgeous, strengthening and grounding flow. The transitions are challenging, but invigorating and exciting - I'm excited to work on them! Love the balance practices too in prep for handstand. Thank you, Fiji.

Thank you, Fiji! I've done almost all of your yoga classes, and this is one of my favorites. I've been missing my yoga studio a lot, especially lately as the weather's been getting colder and I can no longer practice outside, but I'm so grateful for your videos! I love your energy, style, and level of practice.

What a beautiful flow, Fiji! Thank you arranging such a playful yet challenging sequence in such a short amount of time.

Crow, headstand, and wheel poses in one challenging practice! Love it!

Thank you for helping me cope with the situation we're in at the moment. I love your practices , although very challenging , I am hoping to eventually be able to do a headstand.

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!

I am just starting to play with some of the advanced classes and find this one is a great challenge allowing me to be successful alot of the time while not making me frustrated!

Thank you so much for this class, that I am returning to again and again. I really enjoy the slow pace and calming style that gives me the best opportunities to be in the moment, challenge myself and accept, what I'm not yet capable of. I have been wondering, why Fiji in her classes often encourage you not to bounce the hips down as you jump forward. Why is that?

January 25, 2018

Hi, bouncing the hips can be jarring and put too much quick stress on the knees, hips, and lower back. When jumping forward with two legs rather than stepping, if you use your abdominal muscles and try to land with nearly straight legs -- slightly bent and definitely NOT locked at the knees -- the impact is softer. Fiji, I hope that's the right explanation!

February 4, 2018

Thank you for the explanation - it makes really good sense :-) Althoungh I was told from other yoga teachers that engaging your abdominal muscles not to hurt your knees and hips while jumping forward was supposed to make you land as lightly as possible (like a cat) - even if it meant bouncing your hips quite a lot.... Does that make sense to you?

That was some good yoga. Helped me to struggle, in a good way. Gave me the presence to accept myself where i am and to see just how beautiful that acceptance feels. Namaste.

This is a great class that always makes me feel challenged! It's a bit shorter than many of the other advanced practices, so it's great for busier days. I love the inclusion of headstand and handstand as well.

June 14, 2017

I was skeptical about online yoga courses at first, but I have loved every single class of Fiji's I've taken. She gives exactly the right amount of instruction and her presence is great. This class is challenging and so much fun.

June 11, 2017

I loved this wonderful playful practice. Finished feeling alive, present and aware of my bliss body. Great job Fiji.

May 12, 2017

The perfect practice to start my day! I loved that fun transition from crow to headstand.

May 8, 2017

This is my new favorite morning advanced class. Perfect amount of strength, motivation, and flow. I feel strong and ready to take on the day. Thanks Fiji.

May 6, 2017

My body feels soooo good after this class! It's the perfect intensity, pace, and length to fit into a busy day. I will definitely be coming back to this class again and again. Thank you !:)

She uses the word "playful" several times throughout this video, and it definitely delivers. I had a lot of fun and was really challenged. Looking forward to doing it again!

May 1, 2017

Will reapeat many times so I fell confortable 100% doing it! Challenging!!

April 30, 2017

Loved this class! Feels like a full regular length class. Loved the creative transitions. Definitely one I will do many times.

April 29, 2017

Such a wonderful class!! Those challenging transitions are lovely!!

April 28, 2017

I love Fiji's advanced classes. This was perfect. More please. Thank you so much!

April 27, 2017

Another perfect class - love the flow and love the length, it's easy to fit this one into a busy day but still feel like I've done a good bit of yoga. Wonderful stuff!

April 27, 2017

Such an amazing flow, advanced in level and yet gives you the time to do al transitions in your own pace.
Fiji you are an amazing teacher and instructor, Namaste!

April 26, 2017

As always, Fiji, you're great! I was thrilled to see an advanced class that delivers so much in less than an hour like most of the others. Thanks for sharing your gift with us. Namaste

April 26, 2017

Absolutely love Fiji's classes, and am so happy to see another advanced class! More, more, more please!! You are amazing at guiding us through a powerful flow, I love coming to my mat with you.

April 25, 2017

I love this class! There are very few advanced classes in the 20-40 minute range and this was perfect. Advanced enough to give me a good stretch and sweat, but short enough for me to fit it into my day! Thank you, Fiji :)

April 24, 2017

Been hoping for a class with more twists, standing postures and inversions. This will be a practice I revisit often. Enjoyed the creative stretches at the beginning and end! So happy you made a new advanced class! Thank you.

April 24, 2017

You know a practice is good when you laugh and smile in the middle of it. I was so happy to see this advanced playful practice now available. Thank you for a fresh and energizing new video!
