It takes focus, patience and strength to move the body into the most gentle backbend. In Backbending From The Base, Fiji guides you through a beautiful sequence that takes you gradually into deeper backbends with awareness and attention to alignment. Filmed on the serene, rocky Pacific coastline, this class will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and energized.


A beautifully paced and put together backbend flow

Thanks Fiji, personally I find your pace is just perfect and you teach the progression in a safe and engaging manner. For a vinyasa/power class there's plenty of time to take consistent full breaths while you move (as is intended with this style of class) but if people wanted more of a breathing practice they could always add this on as a separate practice at the end.
You're a beautifully gifted teacher - thank you.

Advanced in movement beginner in breath. She doesn't allow for time for advanced breath work to be incorporated into the practice. I implore for a more wholistic definition of advanced.

As a vinyasa / power class I found plenty of time to breath properly without it effecting the consistent pace of movement. Thanks Fiji

Would like space to move with breath

I love Fiji's focus on energy and her practices are great if she would SLOW DOWN. Yoga is about movement with breath and to expand and find space in breath and there is absolutely no time to do that in a majority of her videos. I constantly have to pause the video to do the poses at a comfortable pace. I understand she is trying to create heat, but you can do so with proper breath technique and her practices don't adequately allow for that. I still come back to her classes because despite this very annoying aspect her sequences and guidance is something i do enjoy.

I am in love with Fiji.

I am in love with Fiji. Recovering from an eating disorder, she was exactly what I needed to become the best I can be.

Thank you

Not for us slow movers

This class moves at a fast pace; unfortunately my body responds better to longer holds so this one wasn't for me. Also a lot of alternating between forward and backward bending movements which I tend to try to avoid.
