Absolutely loved this 14 day series and feel so good for doing it- I am sure I will do it again. I loved how each class was structured and how you introduced and reminded me of many different elements that I will incorporate into my daily practise. Thanks for being such a great teacher and providing inspiration during a really challenging time!

I loved this so much! I looked forward to it everyday. Learned lots of new things. I can't do all the poses but working towards it is exciting and fun. Thank you Fiji!

I decided to do this challenge because I needed something to look forward to. I was so ready for 2020 and Trump to be over. I am proud to say that this challenge, in particular, gave me something to look forward to during a time of great turmoil in the US. It helped and guided me to inner peace not connected to the world around me. Thank you so much Fiji. I always say you are my favorite yoga teacher! You never disappoint!

This is the third time I have done this particular challenge and I have learned new things each time whether it is holding my body in a new way to achieve a pose a little more deeply or breathing more attentively. I am sure I will come back to this challenge again! Thank you.

This practice has caused me to realize the growth you speak about, 1 mm at a time. I can actually do the arm balances now! Not perfect but beyond before. Thank you Fiji!!

Thank you! Your instructions and cueing are so clear and continually support new discoveries. I plan on repeating the full 14 days as I'm sure that I'll be able to understand on a deeper level than I did the first time around. See you on the mat!

Since this was the last day of the challenge and I knew there were going to be some challenging poses for me to breathe through, I put music on in the background. I just shuffled a playlist I had made and the song sequence that resulted was amazingly well-timed for this class. I do not own any of these songs and I pay to stream them. Here is the list of songs in order: 1. Opal - Four Tet Remix by Bicep, Four Tet. 2. A New Error by Moderat. 3. Everything Connected by Jon Hopkins. 4. Looped by Kiasmos. 5. Glue by Bicep. 6. Linked by Bonobo. 7. Apollo by Tourist
I hope you enjoy it too!

Wow, I loved this challenge. I have to say I usually really dislike doing any type of arm asanas for very long haha but by the end of this challenge there was a notable difference. I could do all the poses in this class including the kickback thing (twice!) which I never thought Id be able to do. I feel stronger (I like to say Im "Fi-jacked" heh), way more balanced and mentally feeling fantastic having done this. Thank you Fiji. You are SUCH an exceptional teacher. You have inspired me to visit yoga daily. <3

This was - for me - clearly the best lesson in this 14 days challenge. Such a sweet release for my hips!

Thank you Fiji. Grateful for your skill, support and willingness to offer your gift to all. Great progress and will continue. You have made a great difference for many during this shut down time when my yoga studio was forced to close permanently.
Blessings.

This was wonderful! especially during the current phase of lockdown, I enjoyed to take time with myself and to observe my personal evolvement during practice. Definitely had some breakthroughs in poses I‚ve been working on for a long time as well.

Thank you so much for this series, I will definitely come back and do it again!

Love doyogawithme!!!

It was the best discovery that keeps me practicing for years.. Otherwise yoga would be about adjusting my time, finding a teacher in every different place that I live and loosing motivation as time goes by (with kids, things to do, work ..)
But you are with me everywhere I go, every time I want and I can..I can´t thank you enough for this ...But still thanks Fiji for all your lovely professional and really teaching classes. Learned at from you.

Hello Fiji,
It is awesome to connect with you again, I did foundation flow the first time probably six years ago - and I was a regular! Because of these times - back to screen yoga; but there is good, because I have now explored - there is more than foundation flow! I completed the 14 day challenge and now elevate, what would you suggest next? Of course, I thank you for your knowledge, guidance and of course inspiration!

So happy you are back and finding how much more there is to explore on the site! I would suggest doing one of the 30 day challenges next! They are great and have a variety of teachers with similar teaching styles! The intermediate or advanced one is one I think you would enjoy!

Thank you Fiji. I have been taking your challenge every morning for the last 14 days while I am in quarantine. It has deepened my practice and given me all sorts of new ideas. I am now going to set a new challenge with each new day.

thank you for such a wonderful challenge! I have not done yoga regularly since having my first child 5 years ago, and I think that although this took me a little longer than 14 days, it has been an excellent way to re-integrate physical exercise and the powerful calm of yoga back into my life.

Yes! I did it. Minor wrist issues in the first week, but it resolved itself. At the end of this I find myself stronger, more flexible and more easily maintaining the post-yoga peace throughout my day. I got through some especially 'sticky' mental roadblocks during this challenge- in terms of what I thought was possible for my body (flexibility in hips and strength in stabilizing muscles). Thank you!

So grateful for DYWM. This is my second (or third?) time doing this challenge and I have done a number of,others. I really appreciate not needing to choose what I will do each day. It is just there. It is a gift to be taught / led... Now my mom is doing the new challenge with Melissa! It was a fun treat to be able to offer during these strange times. Thanks to everyone who makes it possible. And Fiji, you are pretty much a member of our family!

Thank you so much Fiji. Your words really resonated with me today. I have been practising with you almost daily for 3 years now and it has had a huge impact on my life, so thank you. I feel I have really connected to you even though we have never met! I would love to come to one of your courses one day in real life :) Keep sharing your talent and joy and smiles with us. Namaste.

Hahah! This was great. Thank you so much.
I am laughing because as I lay in my 14th day savasana my 9 month old daughter was ever so gently trying to pull open my eyelids.

I have been doing yoga for about 5 years now and I have always been intimidated by arm stands/balances. I just could never set them up right it seemed. During this challenge something clicked for me and I realized that it was not my lack of arm strength but rather the length of my torso and the way I set up my arm stands. I have a very long torso(I cannot wear one piece anything). I found that I have the core strength to lift my legs and bottom but my arms are not long enough to have the room to lift. If I elevate up onto the base of my fingers at the top on my palm, though, I am able to lift. Is this normal/okay? I'm starting to realize that the awkward mess I have always had in some poses is due to my long torso and I have been making small changes that have really helped!
Anyways, thank you again. I love all of your classes.

Haha! I have kids crawling on me most days during my practice, the older the get the more poses they can climb on to! It sounds like you are discovering that all of us have different bodies and dimensions. This does mean that we will find some types of poses easier and others more difficult simply due to our skeletal structure! I often say in my classes, "if you have short arms like me, you are going to end up with very strong fingers!". Yes modifying in creative ways is what keeps your practice alive, custom to you, and always evolving.

Thank you, Fiji!
I have been practicing yoga for 2.5 years only and just started doing my practice with DYWM. I am very happy that I turned to your practice suggestions and completed the 14-days yoga challenge. I enjoyed a wonderful combination of your no-robot yoga, that is meaningful practice with attention to detail, and a balanced infusion of spiritual component without the excessive new age drivel. You are a wonderful instructor. Thank you!
