Great class, beginner? Not for me.
Annacaring 2 years ago

This beginner completed 20 minutes and decided more would likely be too much. I've pushed myself to get back up to where I was a couple/few years ago and injured some muscles. I don't want the injury to go into joints too so I am taking this class with a grain of salt when it states it is beginner. Holding those poses for so long right at the beginning gave me a hasty and deep burn in my arms and wrist pain beyond strengthening level. Its disheartening to see what a beginner class will do with me now-a-days. Not giving up, just listening to my body and not insisting on fitting into a "rating" of beginner. I am at my own level and listening to my body is a great lesson for me these days.

Amazing class, great way to explain the poses. Very challenging too, and I like that in a Vinyasa flow.

Strong, slow class
heather w 3 years ago

This class is challenging because of its slowed, descriptive pace. The holds make it quite a strong class, probably more an intermediate level but the descriptions are terrific for a beginner learning the asanas. Once again, Fiji's classes are terrific. Highly recommended!

Challenging & Awesome

This practice is great because she goes thru each pose showing transition moves (which I never really understood)and then speeds things up. Its intense I only made it thru 50 minutes. Better luck next time. :)

Beginners who want a challenge!

Woo! I just finished this video and it was challenging - in a good way. It's very helpful in reminding beginners to connect breath with movement (something I strive to improve little by little everyday). I definitely enjoyed this video, and look forward to trying it again to see improvement. I wouldn't suggest this video for people who are just beginning, unless you are an athlete with some base strength.
Thanks for a great video and practice. I look forward to my energized day!

Great explanation!

I love how it explains everything and shows transitions! It is a strengthening session and I couldn't make it all the way through, but alas this is only my second session of yoga :) Even if you cant make it through the whole video, watch the whole video it helps a lot! <3

Great for Building Strength Gently

I am a teenager with fibromyalgia. It's hard for me to find ways to exercise that don't hurt. This video is a great way to build up strength and flexibility for my whole body. I recommend this practice to anyone wanting a gentle and total body work-out.

Got me over a plateau

I've followed this video so often I felt I needed to comment. This was the video that helped me build the strength and basic foundation I needed to progress from a beginner into trying intermediate classes. Even now that I readily do intermediate videos now, I still come back to this one and find there's so much here to continue to improve. I'm still working up to the arm balance at the end - some day!

I agree with other comments. This video IMO is too challenging for a beginner. The long holds take a lot of leg strength. As usual Fiji is excellent here.
