Chakra Five Flow

Intermediate II

Fiji's class that she dedicates to the Vishuddha chakra, or the throat chakra, is a moderate intermediate class with an accessible flow for most intermediate students. You'll feel your body getting charged with a power yoga class that stretches the body in a variety of ways, then Fiji cools you down with inversions (shoulder stand and plough), followed by fish pose, a lovely chant and savasana. The fifth chakra is associated with the color blue and the element is akasha (ether).

It would be lovely to have the chant in writing somewhere so that those of us whose ears aren’t the best can join.

Fun class focusing on an area that I usually don't consider much during my practice.

Love this class that gives us experience with the throat chakra. I am a singer, so it is especially meaningful, thank you Figi!

Thank you so much for this beautiful practice. I'm in Vermont with a new life, daughter just headed off to K a few weeks ago. and much more time to myself. It's been a wild 6 years, going from a 25 year career to full-time mom and part-time business owner. Now I am speaking my truth as I continue to commit to this homestead, self-made life when some outer and some inner voices ask me about a return to the career world. My biggest goal is to stay present, be slow enough to stay honest with myself and hear my voice. This practice helped me feel grounded on a day when I did not. Thank you!!

Thank you Fiji! I struggled a bit to do the mantra, but googled it and found this

Tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushtivardhanam

I hope it is the same one that you sing!

It is interesting to notice where we most need healing we see the biggest and quickest shift. I am not a talkative person, I battle to express myself verbally, and when people don't understand what I am trying to say, I blame them for not getting it. I am not fond of the colour blue - it's just not my colour :) I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that I have thyroid health challenges. The day after doing this class, I found myself talking to people and taking the time to explain myself. And they got it :D I am amazed at the instant difference I am seeing. Thank you Fiji, this class is perfect! I enjoy your classes and I love how you gently get me to go that bit further :)

Wonderful practice! The only thing is we didn't have enough time to repeat after you during the first round of chanting.

A wonderful class so useful for me today as Mercury is in retrograde in Pisces - which is all about emotions and communication! I don't pay a lot of attention to astrology but this time around my body was intensely feeling it since the day it started before I knew about it. An opportunity for transformation like this class. I only wish it was longer. Fiji, could you copy the words of the mantra somewhere? I love chanting mantras and I didn't know this one and would love to learn it. Thank you for your calm and radiant transmission. I'm a yoga teacher myself and I'm always inspired by your classes whether slow or fast paced.

Too much talking for us I appreciate that this may suit some... that did his with my husband as part of the 14 day couple challenge. We have enjoyed the challenge and my husband who is new to yoga will continue which is magic! but this one isn't for us.

You know I tried singing a few bars of one of my favorite songs right after we said namaste and my voice came out really well. Thanks Fiji

Woke up with a sore throat (the weather is getting colder) and feeling stiff from poor night of sleep. I did this as a standalone class and it was the perfect start to my day. It got the juices flowing and I’m already feeling so much better.

I loved this class! I came upon it because of the Get Strong! Whole Body challenge but I will definitely go back and do the full series. Slow-paced but challenging, especially if you are in the full expression of each pose. I had never done fish pose this way before and I did feel a sense of release from my throat chakra afterwards. Great practice for letting go of any swallowed or suppressed words. I only wish it had been longer!

This was a nice gentle class. It did feel more like a lesson than a yoga class. Though it is not my personal preference, I did still enjoy the message. I would have appreciated some additional coaching to get into fish pose. I found it difficult to keep my arms straight and the crown of my head felt like it was an in awkward position. Maybe there is a class that specifically helps with achieving that pose. This is an intermediate class and I don't believe the goal is to do this. Overall a very calming, gentle class and I still took something away from it. Thank you from the States :)

Came across this class in the 21 day full body challenge. This was a nice gentle class however, not for me. I'm not a believer in Chakras and found this to be more of a lesson (too much talking) than a yoga class. I love Fiji and all her passion but this series is not my fav, and that's just fine! We can't all be the same.

Hi Karen, Thank you for being honest and open enough to trying the class. This class is part of the a 7 day chakra series that I created for those who are interested in exploring this aspect of yoga. As you said we are not all the same and I knew that the series and classes in it would not be for everyone.

This is a great practice, thank you, and I wish there was time to hold the postures a bit longer. It felt a bit rushed. I think chanting mantra's are wonderful, but unfortunately there wasn't a long enough pause to allow for a response after the call. I mention this in case you make similar videos. Please, allow more time.

Where can I find the written words for the closing mantra . I find it easier to learn if I can see the words.
Namaste

As a survivor of childhood abuse I can say that my chakras become unbalanced in a way that is very tricky to identify. This class is an integral part in the process of lifelong healing. Thank you, Fiji. Namaste from Ireland.

I know that's not quite what this class is intended for, but it actually helped ward off my oncoming sinus headache (which I don't manage to do very often). Thank you, Fiji!

What a wonderfully healing class! I love all of the healing words you used. You made me aware of the connection between the 4th 5th and 6th chackra. How our words must be compassionate as well as insightful. I have always been challenged with opening my 5th chakra due to my Dad’s death when I was 6. We never spoke about it. This class has helped me with that tremendously! I thank you,Fiji, from my heart! Love to you as you are helping to heal the world!

Hi Paulette,

I am inspired by your comment, and reminded how powerful this practice can truly be for us all. It brings peace to my heart knowing this offering helped you to clear something held in for far too long!

I confess I know little about the chakras but I'm enjoying this series. I came to this a little low on energy with a chest/throat infection and hadn't realised that this would be such a fitting class! As an introvert this is another one that resonated with me in terms of being unafraid to 'speak up'. Great stuff Fiji, I did try the mantra at the end, but as someone else suggested, it would be great to have the words on screen!

Hi Lucy,

This is actually a perfect series for people to get to know the chakras and have the opportunity to plant that knowledge in a very physical and mental way. I am happy you were brave enough to give it a go, I know the feeling of reluctance chakra work can bring forth! Voyage on!

Loved this practice and Fiji’s insightful comments on the 5th chakra . I would have liked to see the words of the mantra at the end to follow along . Maybe a text rolling on the side of the screen?
Thank You Fiji for yet another inspirational video!

Glad you liked the practice, having the words would be great! It is the mahamrityunjaya mantra, maybe you could print it off and have it on hand the next time you do it.

Like many, I have been awaiting the Chakra Series. I love the concept almost more than the practice. (I also love the practice.) A spiritual tune-up... Namaste!

That would be a great title for a series that included these classes, I will think about how to add to an over arching spiritual tune up series!
