the class was good, but the obertalking really got to me after a while. i had a very hard time focusing and it would drag poses too long compared to the "other side" pose following the explanation where it becomes easier since there is less talking. I know the abundant explanations cna really help some people, so maybe this type of class is just not for me.

I had my doubts at the start of this class, but as my body got warmer off I went and it was great. A nice kick off to this ongoing intermediate challenge. I also got more great tips from Fiji that I did not experience before. This what I like about DYWM, lots of great teachers with different styles and tips. For this reason, I cannot think of joining another online network.

Although I’ve been doing a tough flow practice for years, the detailed instructions are incredibly helpful. Holding the poses for so long, however, is a real challenge. This class was easier this second time in the program. Thanks.

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.
