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).

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

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.
