Laying the foundations for a power flow
Rbreid73 2 weeks ago

This class provides so much in its 75 minutes duration. Holds can be long, so if new to power flow be sure to take plenty of breaks. Absorb the detailed cueing though, and mostly slow transitions through sequences that will stand you in good stead as you progress through faster flowing sequences in other classes. As a yoga teacher, this class is a helpful reminder that will provide inspiration and ensure I teach my students safely, broadening the reach of this class beyond the laptop in my lounge to the many others that benefit.

Excellent flow and guidance!

Even as someone who has been doing yoga for years I find a revisit of the basics can often be beneficial to my practice, and with this revisit Fiji helped me get deeper into and gain better form on a few poses that have always been a bit troubling for me. Thanks so much!

Definitely a great class.

Definitely a great class. Thorough explanations of the asanas, which are helpful, however at times the explanations are also tad chatty.

Amazing Instructor and Class

I am new to Yoga. I am a triathlete with hardly any time to stretch. I primarily focus on swim, bike run with very little time to strength train and stretch. I am incredibly tight. This is my second class with Figi and I have already seen a difference. She is an amazing instructor (even better than some of the instructors at a studio!). My lower back, hamstrings and shoulders were fully stretched and the tightness was released. This is my favorite class. Thank you so much for one of the best core and strength workouts I have ever done.

Love this class. After doing

Love this class. After doing 2 14 day challenges and 1 30 day, I wasn't sure where to go next. Did this class as part of the intermediate to advanced power yoga program. Really nice to be reminded about the basics before progressing. Thank you Fiji!

So glad I chose this class

So glad I chose this class today!! I am needing more beginner --> intermediate classes, as I'm starting to feel that beginner is not challenging me anymore but the intermediate is sometimes too challenging. The instruction as to how to do chaturanga properly was wonderful, I always felt I was doing that pose a bit awkwardly/not getting everything I could out of that flow/pose. Thanks Fiji for challenging me!

Thank you for the feedback, everyone. Although Fiji covers many of the fundamental elements of a vinyasa practice in this class, it really is more at an intermediate level than beginner, in terms of how challenging the class is as a whole. We changed it from beginner to intermediate.

Fiji great

I lover her classes, they are challenging but at the same time I feel like its a reach I can attain. Like the other reviewers said, it is tough to get past the 45 min mark....but I know I will after a few attempts (weeks) and I enjoy that push.
Thanks
