I have been to numerous teachers and yoga classes in Bikram, Kundalini, and Vinyasa. This by far is the best instruction I have ever heard/seen. Thanks Fiji. I am loving your practice. It was rejuvenating and challenging. Nameste!

I love how thorough this teacher is, especially since I hadn't practiced in awhile and hadn't been as physically active as I normally am. It was great to be reminded of the proper positions and alignments of the body. I will be doing this one again.

Great class! Explanations are very detailed. I would agree that this class has some intermediate in it. Need to work up to being able to do some of the poses and the length for which they are held. What I could do felt great! I LOVE this Web site!

This is an absolutely brilliant class. I love how Fiji explains all the tiny little nuances of each pose, which are so easy to miss.
I thoroughly enjoy how basic and yet incredible (for me, a beginner) this class is.
Thank you!

I took my first yoga classes this summer and was looking for something to help me think through technique and become more acquainted with the basics. Fiji's explanations are clear and well pace--especially for an almost total beginner. Thank you for the wonderful video! Looking forward to more :]

Thank you for this wonderful introduction to vinyasa flow. Most vinyasa classes move too quickly for me and provide very little instruction on alignment. I always feel that I'm sacrificing safety in favour of speed. Your class offered the alignment instruction I've been desperate to find. I know I'll now be able to complete other classes more safely and effectively.

I am grateful for Do Yoga With Me. Thank you for your wonderful instruction and free resources.

A perfect class to learn how every pose needs to be done to attain all the benefits.

Eventhough this is a beginners class I would say it has some intermediate in it, the slow movement and correction of the poses makes it a bit harder . : ) Loved it

first of all, i enjoyed the class very much and the teacher really explains stuff well!
however, the durations in which she stayed in the poses are definitely not something that a beginner will have strength for. it is obvious that the teacher is very good at what she's doing but is unable to empathize with the target group - the beginners - of a lower skill (and i guess that was the main point in first place, since she explains those poses)
i will surely come back to this set when i'm more experienced but this is definitely not something for a beginner
