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.

Equipment: Block
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

Thanks, Fiji. I came "back to the mat" today after a five-week absence from a steady yoga practice, including the past few days of flu-like symptoms. I happened across your "back to the mat" practice and it was perfect! I'm 72 and have been doing yoga for 20+ years. I believe it has helped me stay 'young". After doing your practice today, I understand that I need to recommit to my practice as just five weeks away resulted in an astonishing loss of strength. I'll be powering up with you and also my local yogis. Happy New Year!

Thank you Fiji for reawakening my practice that was strong for 11 years but has been dormant for 18 months now. After graduate school and a long drawn out job search I'm ready to get right again. Excited to see what Day 2 brings.

I am coming back to the mat after 8 weeks healing an ankle injury. At the same time, coincidentally, I'm rediscovering dating. This 30 days is so important to my peace of mind, self confidence, and well being. You have started it off perfectly with a well paced clearly taught class. Many thanks Fiji!

Thank you, Fiji! You have reawakened my tired soul. It was a rough end of the year with the catastrophic flood in August that left my family and 150,000 in Louisiana homeless for months. I am finally feeling confident and excited enough to rediscover that connection with my mind and body after a lot of hurting and grieving. Thank you for all you do. What a true gift to many souls. Namaste.

What a great way to start this challenge! Fiji's soft, yet direct voice, made the practice so soothing and fly by! Her cues were easy to follow and I loved her use of the block:) Cant wait for tomorrows class:) Happy New Year every one!!
