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.

Love this class thank you! I need the slow gentleness for my back as i tend to go overboard and compress my backbends :) More advanced classes by Fiji please!

Out of all the yoga DVDs, videos and classses ive attended this is by far one of the best! love the focus and gentleness of thr backbends! Often i feel rushed or as if there is little focus on fluidity and breath i. advanced classes, but this class was so well-balanced! Thank you for this teaching and namaste! :)
