Absolutely loved today's class!! This is the second 14 day challenge a group of us are doing through the Quarantine over Zoom and it has seriously lifted all of our spirits. Thank you for all of the encouragement and words as we work through the poses.

I find Fiji's cues very helpful and her voice so calming. A couple of poses were challenging for me but I like having something to focus on improving and work towards. Another great start to the day! Thank you :)

A fun and different intermediate class. It is challenging and Fiji guides through the poses and taking each a step further (if you wish).
A shorter practice for ELEVATE however it won't disappoint.

What a beautiful session. I am loving the slow, controlled flow in the pacing of these Elevate classes. I feel open and centered at the end of each one. Thank you, Fiji, as always. <3

Hello Fiji, in the pose at around 18 minutes when we are in a lunge and wiggle the upper arm/shoulder under the thigh, and then straighten the arms - I can get my upper arm/shoulder quite far underneath but when I straighten my arms - nothing happens. My foot still touches the floor even though my arm is straight - and the thigh is quite far up my arm. This happens on both sides. Do you have any idea as to what's happening or what I need to adjust? (I did attempt a few times but each time same result.) Aware this might not be possible to answer when you can't see what I'm up to exactly! Really enjoying this challenge. Thank you so much.

Hi, I don't think the foot is meant to lift up simply because the arms straighten up, you will need to engage your core and the leg muscles to actually lift the foot yourself. The arms are meant to serve as a shelf to support the leg. You might be leaving the leg a bit too relaxed when you lift up which will only stretch your inner and back thigh. Try bending the knee a bit more to squeeze your upper arm (or shoulder) with it and then hover the foot. Support yourself on the hands and the back leg, this should feel like an arm balance, then later if you are confident enough go for the extension and maybe float the back leg too. Hope that helps!
