Balancing Backbends

Intermediate II

Working on foot balances can be tough enough. When you combine it with backbends you get a tough class that leaves you feeling amazing. Add to that Fiji's beautiful style and natural skill, and you have yourself a yoga class you'll want to do again and again, especially since it's all packed into 22 minutes!

I have been doing these Intermediate classes for several months now, and really enjoy Fiji as an instructor. Have been hesitant to try this one because I am not able to get into wheel pose yet, but so glad I tried it today. Standing/ balancing back bends are very challenging but great to explore. I feel like this practice really took me to another level today.

This is a short practice but I found it pretty challenging. Good class to wake you up in the morning.

I really like the way the flow moves into dancer, it felt very smooth. For me I feel I needed a bit more warming before the first strong cobra, so will warm up before I practice this next time. Many thanks

This class brought me to the moment, energized and calmed me at the same time.
Thank you Fiji, and DYWM, for sharing this beautiful class.

I wish you could "Favorite" certain classes and put them in a special place. This is one of my favorites. This is a great class for the intermediate yogi, someone who is familiar with the basic movements and has been through enough classes to know the names of certain body parts. Fiji makes sure to walk you through each movement and stretch, slowly at first, then she does it again moving more quickly, allowing you to learn as you go. Even after doing this class many times I find more ways to open up, as she talks you through breathing techniques and tells you how to let go in each movement.
I love that she reminds you to breathe! That is something I believe we all will always need, no matter how long we've been practicing. :)
Thanks, Fiji!

We're in the middle of packing for a move. My husband asked me to do some yoga so I could take a mental break and de-stress. This was perfect. It was a quick break but focused enough to bring my mind to stillness.
