In this all levels class, Fiji takes you through a slow, deliberate flow practice that emphasizes the fundamentals in proper alignment. It is an intelligently guided vinyasa class that will renew your sense of connection to precise body positioning, while building the energy of a fun, vigorous power flow yoga class.


I have been practicing yoga
Lagunatick 2 years ago

I have been practicing yoga for nearly 2 years now, normally at the intermediate/beginner level. I find Fiji's instructions very helpful, however the instructions are lengthy which requires one to hold some poses for exceedingly long periods of time. The upper body strength poses are especially challenging for me. I was surprised to see Crow offered on a beginner video which was a little discouraging. I doubt I'll practice with this video in the future as there are luckily so many others that meet my needs.

Finished beginners basic flow

I've also been doing yoga a couple of years at intermediate level but I love to go back to the beginners level because they're minder of technique and because they are harder because the poses are slower it's a great work out ! And reminds us of form!

Highly Recommend This Class

Thank you SO much for this class! Clear instructions, challenging (for me), great cues! I took this class as part of the "Ongoing Intermediate Yoga Program" and am so glad! Helping me ensure a firm foundation as I progress in my practice. Thank you!

Thanks for the planks!

I chose this class as I am focusing on rebuilding strength. I've been a fan of Fiji for years and knew that this sequence would challenge me while allowing me to get back to the mat with confidence. It did, and I was thankful for every last plank pose!

I am a first time Yogi and i actually love this. I tried Yoga before and i had a lot of trouble just could not relax i felt like the instructors did not take me to the place i needed to be nor explain poses to me as we went, but this video has me hooked i feel great just after 1 session I will for sure be following and continuing along. Thank you so much.

Great video!

I have been a couch potato for too long and am trying to get back into a routine. This video was fantastic! Challenging, but will allow me to follow my progress session by session. A few questions:
1. Holding a few of the beginning poses really began to hurt my wrists. Any suggestions?
2. Because I am outta shape, I couldn't transition very easily. For instance, I can't move my feet quickly up to my hands, so I need to come out of position a bit and take a few steps. Is this ok? Will I eventually be able to move fluidly? I just want to ensure I am getting the benefits and not harming myself instead of doing good.
3. Breathing. Oh breathing. I know this important, but I tend lose my breaths and make 'exhale' transitions when I am inhaling (and vice versa). Again, is this ok? I am hoping I get the hang of it.
4. Is there a number of times I should be practicing this video? 6x's a week? 2x's a week? Not sure there is a right answer to this, but wanted to check.
5. I have a belly, boobs and thighs (among other lumps and bumps) so some of the movements, my body gets in the way of itself. Again, do I just keep doing what I can until this fab goes away? :)
6. Any suggestions or recommendations are appreciated!

Thank you so much! The thing I love about yoga is it is so personal. I am only challenging myself and keeping up with myself. I will enjoy seeing the progress week to week.

Wow! As I was rolling up into

Wow! As I was rolling up into seated position I came to realize that I'm on a flat solid surface and Fiji did this on a rugged rock cliff.
I chose this today to review and correct, and saw many places that I had gotten sloppy or taken the position for granted. Thanks for the tune up.

Great video!

This video is great for getting an actual workout in at home with nothing but a mat. I have practiced yoga on and off for about 8 years and I'm currently trying to get back into the swing of it. I consider myself very alignment-focused but this video definitely taught me a few things in very clear, plain english. The instructions are easy to follow and the pace is manageable for someone who works out regularly but is not necessarily in the best yoga-shape. I made it through the whole video and broke a major sweat along the way.

Good flow class
CampHillGal 3 years ago

The beginning of the class really helped me concentrate on my alignment. You are very clear in your instructions so I don't have to look up at the screen. This video will help me in my Vinyasa flow classes. I still can't do the crow pose, but have confidence I will in the future. Thanks for this class.

I've been practicing yoga everyday for about 2 months. Starting REALLY slowly. This is my first at home attempt at a flow class. Although I didn't make it all the way through it (about 50 mins then i did my own savasana) it really helped me to recognize my breath moving through and taught me some basic things I didn't know about so I can continue to practice effectively. Thank you so much! I know I have more work today and my arms are KILLING me today it is a great tool to have to continue working on. I will incorporate this into my weekly practice until i have the strength to complete it with confidence.
My main problem I struggle with is my competitiveness ... i need to leave that at the door and this class really reinforced that. Darn chatarangas and planks are killing me but I'm so determined to eventually master this important aspect of flow.
