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: Power Yoga

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!
