I am an experienced yoga teacher so the class was rather gently to me. Nevertheless, it was a pleasure to discover some new original variations and sequences, which I will definitely try out in my classes and sadhana!

Teachers like her make me remember how beautiful a practice yoga is, that never gets corny and evolves without limits.

I'm completely in love with this class! Challenging in a good way, working the whole body and perfect for my really tense shoulders. It's such a lovely feeling when you float the arms out after the bind. And Fiji's instructions are just excellent, keeping you in place without having to look at the screen. Thank you so much!

Love this class! And I love how Fiji's classes can focus on opening up a certain area but still work the entire body.

loved this class. found it challenging, in a good way! really feel deeply relaxed in my shoulders now. I really like your voice and how you instruct! some teachers annoy me by sounding super cheesy, all "feeeeeeeeel the flow"... but I really appreciated your straight-foward instruction. thanks so much for this video! namaste x

Since I'm not advanced in my practice this was challenging but after giving myself permission not to get all the poses I was so glad I did the class. It's a great full body class and my shoulders are looser. I plan to add this to my favorites (among the many on your site) and hope improving my awareness and flexibility of my shoulders allows for improvement in my overall practice. Namaste

So excited about Fiji's latest class! I've been working on my forearm balance so this shoulder sequence is a really nice complement. Happy and challenging flow, and good music, too. Thank you!

I usually do Fiji's intermediate level videos but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I could do this one :) I felt completely relaxed at the end and I loved how she reminds us to smile and not take ourselves so seriously!

I had to create an account just to post about how much I loved this class. I keep all my work-related stress in my shoulders as well as practice sword-fighting 2-3 times a week so I'm always feeling some degree of tightness and discomfort. This series really opened everything up and had my upper back and shoulders relaxed for the rest of the day. Thanks again!
