Note: this class is temporarily free, to go with Fiji's Yoga for Eating Disorders Program. It will be returned to subscriber-only on May 7th. 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


Gentle Class
amisenpace 5 months ago

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 :)

Nice gentle class

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.

Thank you for your honesty

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.

Loved this class!

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

words for you!

Good for self esteem for those with a history of childhood abuse

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.

Great for sinuses!

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

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!
