Just revisited this class after a couple of years as part of the 2020 new year challenge, and I am astonished at how far my practice has developed from first time around - a wobbly, giggly, collapsing heap of human- to now! I managed almost everything except the full flying pigeon, and I did manage to get one foot off the ground for a split second. The millimetre miracles are happening!

Very nice challenge- although I was a bit wobbly, I enjoyed this. Felt like it was the perfect length also. :)

I love coming back to this video again and again as a way to check in with myself. It is so relaxing yet challenging. For some reason though, I always find that the transition from warrior 3 to pigeon pose towards the end of the video on my right side always gives me a very intense and unpleasant sensation in my right hip to the point where I have to ease off pigeon pose and shake it off. Doesn't happen on my left side for whatever reason, so I'm waiting for the day when that transition is less painful.

Each time I do this lovely practice I get closer to floating in the sky. Thanks for letting us ake flight.

For some reason I cannot receive audio on this file. All the others work fine.

Just loved the creative theme and newly woven transitions.
Feeling the shoulder strength from a playful and lightening way.
And some birds still need to learn getting off the ground, in my world. :-)
Awesome class with Fiji.

Strong and graceful. I worked up a sweat with this one. I'm going to do this repeatedly until I get it right and steady. Thank you.

These poses were challenging for me, but I enjoyed the smooth transitions, warm up, and relaxing savasana. Thank you for another great class!
