Really enjoyed this flow - I have done a bit of yoga in the past but found it parts of it a challenge - maybe because I was focusing on doing it correctly this time! Will definitely do this one again as I can only get better with practice. Thanks Fiji!

I have loved doing this class with Fiji! My back has been bothering me for a while and this session really helps loosen me up so that I can relax! I am new to yoga but I think this was the introduction I needed to get me hooked and make me a lifer. :)

With a few yoga classes behind, this one felt great, while some postures where a little bit hard all the class was pretty good. GREAT explanation of poses and breath, just PERFECT!

I'm a beginner and this is just what I needed! Fiji really walks you through the poses in a way where you are always cognizant of your body and what you're capable of. This was definitely a challenge, but I look forward to continuing to progress in this practice!

I practiced yoga for a year and half. I had to take about a year off and decided to get back into this week. This video was great to get back into the flows and to remind my body of the correct posture during the poses. Fiji did an amazing job explaining each pose. This website and video have me so excited to be able to get back into yoga and to watch my body once again regain it's flexibility and strength.
Thank you!

I did not have the strength to get through this session, but I will keep working and come back to this later. The detailed descriptions of each pose were really good, but holding the poses through the descriptions require a bit more strength than I currently can manage. I will definitely keep coming back to this until I can complete the entire session.

This was my first class, and I was surprised at how easy it was to get the hang of each series of poses. Fiji certainly takes the time to explain each pose and way of breathing as you speed up to regular speed. My mind is quiet, but I expect my body will be talking to me tomorrow.

Wow haha this was an intense video. I would not recommend this for someone attempting yoga for the very first time. I've been at it now for a few weeks (and practiced a lot a few years ago.) I can honestly say I made it through to 46 minutes and then fast forwarded to the end for some seated stretches. I am drenched in sweat like the others. I was looking for a more advanced beginner video and I definitely found it! I'm looking forward to trying it again...and again...This will be the video I grow into. Fiji is a wonderful instructor. Thank you so much for the lesson (and the challenge :)

Thank you Fiji for this beautiful practice! :)

I couldn't run today and wanted something a little bit more challenging than the classes I'm used to do on DoYogaWithMe... And ended up getting a lot more than I expected! Thanks to your very detailed explanations, I've actually learned a great deal about my body and its inner workings, that was really great :)

I also loved the very gentle way you introduced me to my very first arm balance

Greetings,

I found this to be a challenge for me ( I'm a beginner) however it was a good one. I now know I should build better strength. I made it 42min through and I'm proud of that. She's very detailed which is great appreciated and needed at times. Her arms are amazingly tones, which is why she transitions so smoothly! Love this experience! Thank you

I am a beginner still, so Fiji's detailed explanation of each pose is a great help to me. The first time through was quite challenging for me, as I do not have much strength or stamina yet. The second time through, I was amazed by the upper body strength I had already built, and was able to hold the poses for much longer. Holding downward dog for long periods requires a lot of upper body strength, the part of my body where I am weakest. I am hoping that by the fourth time through, I will not have to take any breaks at all, and maybe not have to take the knees on plank either. I never understood chaturanga until I saw the flow broken down properly. I am very grateful for that! I am really looking forward to her more challenging sessions, when I am ready, of course. :)

Great cueing and flow. I enjoyed reviewing the basics and the slow-pace of the class. It is obvious Fiji has had many years of teaching experience and knows how to as for the correct alignment in the pose. I am going to search for another video from her!

This session was good for reviewing the basics: breath, form & drishti. Even though it was slow-paced, it seemed more of a workout than going faster as it takes more strength to hold the asanas. Less cardio & more strength-based. Many thanks, Fiji ...

I am a beginner yogi (about two months in) and I absolutely loved this video! I could only get through about 45 mins of it but this is a great workout and stabilizer video. Loved the thoroughness of instruction!

Namaste.

Thanks Fiji, this is an amazing series of poses. I have just started doing yoga for about a month now. Though still struggling to work through the whole video, I found my strength and balance improved immensely every time I attempt the video.

The duration of the poses also challenge me to build strength and familiarize myself with yoga basics in a controlled way.

Hopefully one day I can work through the entire video with ease!

I want to try this class, to see if I am flexible enough to do yoga. Can anyone tell me how many calories does this burn please? I am on a weight loss regiment and want to add variations for everyday and want to do this in a peaceful room over weekend in the mornings.

I'm new to DYWM and this was my first class. I struggled to keep up during the last 25min and had to stop. I was drenched in sweat! What a gret work out! Fiji is a great instructor. Thorough, detailed and encouraging. This is exactly what I wanted in a class. Thank you DYWM for making these videos available. I'll be using this video until I can complete the entire class without breaking a sweat :)

I've been using this video to really awaken myself at the start of my day and I'll be honest- I really struggled to finish the first couple of times- like vasodebarro mentioned, the explanations really push you on holding some of the poses. Finally was able to finish the whole video today and my body not only feels charged, but I feel calm in myself. Fiji, you do an amazing job explaining, thank you.

Useful class which provides very detailed descritions of all the asanas. It's pretty easy but I find it helpful for beginner but not only for them. Thanks, Fiji.

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.

Namaste,

Sandra

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
