If you have taken some time away from yoga, whether it's due to an injury or other life event, this is a great class to get you going once again. Fiji slows down the typical pace of her class to spend time re-establishing yoga principles while moving you through a fun, dynamic vinyasa class.


Thank you, Fiji!

I practiced yoga consistently for a few years but I haven't been consistent for the past year and a half, unfortunately. The teacher in this video really understood her audience in terms of being away from the mat for a while but still kept it challenging enough. The production of this video is awesome with no cheesy music and her communication skills are absolutely amazing. I loved this!

Intention & Gratitude!

After surviving a hit a run crash almost a year ago (the 30th) I am coming back to the mat. Whilst having practiced for 30++ years my injuries, which were extensive, healed faster than expected by the physicians, but the journey has been frightening on many levels... and now healing... thanks to starting the 30 day yoga challenge. This class was brilliant for me, your slow, deliberate intention is what is needed for me to effectively open my chakras and heal my inner child. Whilst I finished the practice, it was challenging for me and I began weeping. Thank you for your teaching here. This is my 2nd class with DYWM and my first in the 30 day challenge. I plan on becoming a Subscribing Member due to this class today. I have gratitude for my mat again. Namaste (from Ireland).

Simple yet strenuous

Nice effective class. I'm pushing myself to do this challenge and not the beginner one because my collarbone still aches nearly three years after surgery. I'm glad I did it - I added a child's poses as and when I needed to, but I was able to complete the class in more or less the same time as Fiji. :)

Great practice!

Thank you! Even though I haven't been away from the mat, this is a great class to take to remind my mind and body of good alignment with the poses. Using the block is SOOO helpful!

Needed this today and will be returning to this class. I tore my ACL in May, had surgery in July and am finally starting to come back into myself. A lot of this is still challenging but I am grateful it's here and am ready to meet the challenge is presents. Thanks as always to Fiji for being a kind and caring teacher as she leads us through this beautiful journey.

I could do this class over and over!
