I really enjoy your classes, Fiji! I needed a way to continue my yoga practice AND augment my learning during these "shelter in place" days of the coronavirus. God bless!

Great to get back to basics to ensure alignment is as good as you think. Really enjoyed this!

I do yoga for some years. I like Fiji's classes very much. I have a bit sensitive low back, therefore I am doing yoga poses with much attention and care. Fiji's classes provide me with safe guidance and truly attach me with my own core, physically and mentally.

Like some reviewers, I like the instructions, but after 37 minutes, I gave up trying. I watched it a little bit more then fast forwarded towards the end to shavasana. I don’t have the strength to hold most of the poses and I didn’t want to injure myself. Maybe when get stronger, I’ll try again. I did this class as part of the beginning to intermediate program.

I typically love all classes but a little disappointed on this level of class chosen for an intermediate to advance challenge. I have been stuck on intermediate for awhile and looking for the push and this was like starting over. I love Fiji's classes but no this one this one for this challenge.

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.

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

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.
