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.

This is my very first ever Yoga session and it was tough but I did the whole thing! Feeling energised and relaxed both at the same time, thanks Fiji for an awesome video I'll be sure to check out your others, looking forward to improving my Yoga, some of the poses were hard and I'm not that flexible yet. Namaste!

I picked this beginner workout to start back after a recent accident put my back and neck in a bind because it included stretches my doctor already had me using. I was only able to get a short distance in but I will be working my way up to more. The stretches in my back felt amazing, my shoulders are what really stopped me. I was working up a great sweat and I can feel it in my back and core. I can't wait to be able to do it all.

I'm new to yoga and am interested in developing a daily practice. I tried Fiji's Intro to Flow class last night and found it to be challenging and so informative! I learned a lot about body positioning and can really feel it in my muscles today.

Thanks for sharing this valuable resource!

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.
