Thank you Fiji for another beautiful and healing practice.

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.

After this class my body feels totally renewed! I got to a point that I didn't think I could reach, with calm and quiet. The pace is moderate and the workout intense, it takes you in a meditative state. I will do this again soon!

I am an Intermediate yogi at best. I did this class today with trepidation but found it so fantastic. For the first time in my life I was able to do a complete wheel. Also my shoulder stand came about so free and easily.Terrific class. Do not be afraid. Fiji is one of my favorite instructors via video. She gives perfect cues and her voice is yet relaxing and inspiring.

Great back bending series. I highly recommend it after a good warm up. I felt while in Camel how I can find Kapotasana.
