It must be 10 years since I first did this class and it remains a stone cold classic of challenging core and strength classes! It's also the reason that to this day I always do the extra chaturangas in every vinyasa flow. Came back to it today because I wanted a class that felt like a workout, didn't let me down!

Years since I first did this class and it's still as amazing. Maybe not as challenging as when I first did it ;-) But still as amazing, Thanks!

Wow what a spectacular class. I'd say this is Intermediate II or III in terms of poses, but definitely Advanced regarding strength and stamina -- just what I needed. Looking forward to returning.

Really well taught and challenging. I got through 40 minutes and then had to take a call. UGH!!! I get a lot of twinging in the area of my SI joint so I did some modifications but overall most of the class was doable for me. Thank you so much!

I had not done this class for years, what a joy to revisit such a great class. I had avoided this class as it always exhausted me and I could not do some of the poses and the extra chaturangas. I was happily surprised that my dedication to daily practice has paid off. I did every additional chaturanga and was up to every pose. I even threw in Eka Pada Koundinyanasana II since we were almost there anyway! I can't believe the changes in strength, balance and flexibility you and a few other of my favorite instructors at DoYogaWithMe have enabled me to achieve. Thank you!!

This has been my go-to class for a couple of years. I tried to download it, but I have a Macbook, and I was not able to download the class. No matter how many times I do this class, it’s still a great workout and leaves me feeling sore in a good way. I would prefer a slower build up to warrior one, but I usually just pause at that point and take my time. Thanks for such a great class!

Great class, Fiji! Thank you for a class I really have to work hard just to get through. After the vinyasas, that arm balance was really challenging for me; I'm looking forward to more strength and more practice! Namaste

I simply love this class! It has all that I've been missing - besides strength, suppleness, balance it challenges my fitness level. I've many problems with my knees so my fitness level can't be strengthen by for example running, biking and so forth. I've been searching for at class that could give that and now I found it and want even more;-).
Fiji (or other yogis) can you tell me which classes besides this class and Inspire the Fire that increases your heart rate significantly?

Hi Marie, I am so happy you love this class! It is the type of practice I use when I really want to turn up the internal heat. I think you may like inspire the fire,moving meditation 2, and rise and shine. I am also starting to film a new 14 day yoga challenge this week and it is geared to be intermediate/advanced .

Wonderful full vinyasa class. I really enjoy the older class style with the voiceover and music rather than the teacher talking through the class. It feels more intentional and allows me to more completely experience the full yoga practice.

Thank you. Working my way back from throwing my back out several times in the last month, ironically because my yoga has been inconsistent. Thank you for a good sweat and a calming atmosphere. The best way to practice! Figi, your subtle cues make all the difference in the world. A little shift can realign an entire pose!! I hope to meet you one day, possibly at one of your retreats!

I know what you mean about the importance of a consistent practice, when we step in and out our mind and body are not on the same page. The mind has expectations of what we should be able to do and the body is not ready!

I put a lot of effort into my cues in the online classes giving even more support because I am not there to clarify or adjust, thank you for noticing! Keeping people strong and safe are both important!

I have a lot of retreats and teacher trainings coming up this year and would love to have you join one!

This is one of my "go-to" classes when I need to re-align my hips and re-set my body, build strength, and focus my practice. Thank you Fiji for the seeds you plant so faithfully - they are still bearing much fruit! :)

Completed this one as part of the 14day Advanced Challenge for 2018! Loved it as always and reminded me to request more please??? Vinyasa/Power workouts that are intermediate/advanced would be great for those of us trying to add more cardio power workouts in. Pretty please?

This is one of the first classes that really blew my mind, must be more than 2 years ago. Just did once again did it after several months, and I still love it! I love the faster pace and good physical challenge. Still one of best classes by Fiji! Thanks!

Haha man 39 has kicked me in the butt! I was a national gymnast, dancer and equestrian and 10 years ago this pose was a sinch. Now Fiji has inspired me to get back to shape, challenging me with poses and transitions that I was falling out of! Great to kick my ego to the curb as well. Thanks for inspiring me back into a daily yogic practice Fiji. Great class :)

It is a real challenge. I like the voice over classes with music sometimes, it makes me get deeper into practice according to the mood of that day. Thank you especially for the videos shot in an unabridged nature, It is a pity most videos are shot on artificial grass but not the ones on DYWM. Yoga free and for everyone.

This is one of the most fast-paced and unrelenting classes I've done on DYWM -- what a challenge! The music is louder than most classes, and I occasionally needed to look at the screen to understand Fiji's instructions moreso than I usually did, but I enjoyed this class! I'm doing the advanced yoga challenge and this most certainly pushed me.

I just discovered "do yoga with me" 3 or 4 months ago. I've been practicing yoga for about 10 years and can be a tad picky when it comes to teachers... I love love love Fiji. I love her teaching style, pace, breath cues and attention to alignment.
With that being said I did not like this class, actually when it first started I was like, "whoa", Fiji is doing a voice over rather than teaching while doing the flow? I am not a fan of the voice-over classes BUT then I saw the age of this video... If you are new to DYWM and really like Fiji's "newer" classes you will not like this one, it actually doesn't even sound like her. She's really grown as a teacher since filming this video and DYWM's production has gotten much better too.

The flow is a good one and a great test of strength but just not your present day Fiji type of class.

WOW, what a challenge! I'd consider myself an intermediate, working towards advanced yogi, and this class kicked my butt. I love Fiji's classes that focus on specific body parts or developing specific poses. More advanced classes from Fiji, please!

This class is an amazing strengthener and a powerful energy flow. Fiji is such an incredible teacher. She has taught me so much, and the same words have guided me through many stages of my life. Thank you, and thank you to the whole DYWM team. You are all absolutely incredible.

This class awakened a strength that I didn't realize I had- such a joy! Wonderful verbal cuing- and guiding to find strength deep within core by engaging the bandhas. Peppy pace kept the flow moving and grooving. I feel so revitalized, Thank you!

I could use another 5 minutes of warm-up before diving into the challenging flow at the beginning of the class. People with weak or injured shoulders or wrists should do independent warm-up before starting this class.

This is my go to class when I want a real workout in yoga. Fiji's direction is spot-on, as always, and she really pushes us to keep going in a tough core class. I still haven't mastered the arm balance, maybe one day!

This might be rated as an advanced class and by pace and length, I'd agree, but it's heartening to know that I can keep up and do most of the poses. When I have enough time, this is a good challenge. I'll keep trying this one.

There is no hiding behind half-assed poses here. If your core strength isn't there, you will know. Fiji challenges us in this class to practice authentically within our true strength and abilities.

great advanced level and unique vinyasa's. Should consider making shorter advanced level classes for those who do not have enough time to complete an hour long session but still desire the advanced energy level.Thanks Fiji! love your classes!

For a long-time-intermediate like me--who can't do some more complicated poses/balances (yet) but who loves a good workout from yoga--this is the perfect class. Fiji is physically challenging but this class is accessible to many. I wish there were many more classes like this.
