Loved this class! By the end of it I felt light and strong at the same time. Thats a first for me. I found my strength and balance was far more "on" today than it has been so far within the challenge which I think means the challenge is working! haha Could also be that I didn't have a glass of wine first. haha. Thanks again Fiji. See you tomorrow!

I loved this class - I'm in my second trimester of pregnancy and not so interested in switching over to pre-natal classes already, I'm still capable of continuing my practice like before but I have been really listening to my body more and making adjustments as I go. So having a class devoted to that specific concept was really great for me, thanks Fiji!

Your comment in the beginning about the art of discernment was so true for me. I started this Elevate Challenge to keep me sane and healthy during the lockdown due to the Coronavirus. I tried to do this practice yesterday but after about five minutes it felt too intense for my already quite tense muscles and I was stressed for time as well. I quit the practice and did a shorter programme. Today I came back to it and even though it was intense, it was perfect. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

Love the progression of this challenge -- each day builds on the previous and then pushes you a bit further. I get so much more out of the Fiji challenges than the ones with mixed instructors. So grateful to you, Fiji! And the long holds today were fire!

Thank you Fiji - I really enjoy this challenge! I have done many of your other classes before, but with this series I understand the intention of the different poses so much better with the suggestions of the different levels. Namaste!

Fiji presented a wonderful practice for Day 5. The connection of mind, body and breath is something we sometimes forget when we are doing a rigorous practice or we are at a studio we are new to. This practice will allow you to learn to accept where you are and listen to what you need (ALL OF YOU).

While I've been practicing with Fiji for a couple of years now, practicing daily is a new challenge for me. Day 5 was particularly hard, so I appreciated this paying attention and mindfulness study. It was challenging to accept my need to back off when I'm usually pushing myself forward.
I so appreciate your teachings Fiji! Thank you
