This class can be done as a stand-alone class or as day 2 in Fiji's 14-Day Yoga Challenge, Elevate. In this vinyasa flow class, Fiji helps you incorporate the concept of levity into your practice. You will help you learn to move with lightness and ease by facing new challenges with a sense of humor. Note: a block is not required for this class, but some students may wish to have one to support them during some of the balancing postures.

Equipment: Strap
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

Thank you for the great class! Surprised myself by doing a handstand for the first time in years.

That was fantastic! The asanas where you transition with the strap threw me (mentally) at first but I ended up doing it and loving it!! So creative and fantastic transitions. Im also never able to get into headstand in the traditional yogi way and I did it. It wasn't perfect, but I did it! I feel stronger already. This challenge is helping me get off the couch/away from my sourdough bread/muffin making haha and feeling strong again during this time of isolation. Thank you Fiji! Can't wait for tomorrow.

Wow, I read the comments and thought no way will I do headstand but I floated into it. There is definitely lightness in this class, wonderful! Thank you for another beautiful class Fiji.

Wow, amazing cues and suddenly I am in a headstand, inspired to see what the body can do. Thank you so much for this class and challenge refreshing my mind and body to start the day in New Zealand today.

This 14 day challenge is helping me through the London Lockdown. Thank you so much and wishing you good health.

Wow this was awesome. At the beginning of this class I would not have thought I would be comfortable attempting my first headstand (especially risking falling forward into my desk... think I'll take Day 3 in the living room with more space), however, I felt so grounded and sturdy pushing up through my arms and upper back, and anchoring my head against my woven fingers as guided..... I found myself pushing up into my first headstand ever, and holding it for the entire 12 breaths that I consciously worked towards before letting myself down (although not nearly as slow and gracefully as Fiji lowers down in the video).

Thank you so much! Can't wait for Day 3 tomorrow :)

I had the exact same experience! Felt so light and easy in headstand. Amazing! Thanks so much Fiji - I truly feel elevated :)

I found the root and rebound concept really good. I will try to use it in my own teaching.

I went for a run today so found the lifted heels a little challenging. I have particularly tight calves and no yoga sequence ever seems to stretch them out, unfortunately.

Still, loved Day 2 and see you tomorrow!
