This class can be done as a stand-alone class or as day 5 in Fiji's 14-day yoga challenge, Elevate. Being able to listen to your body and respond appropriately is an important yogic skill. In this class, Fiji helps you learn how to hone in on key sensations so you can make critical adjustments within each pose.

Equipment: Block
Style: Vinyasa Yoga


Fiji I absolutely love your classes. The things you say while hold our poses about discernment, letting go of things that don’t serve us anymore, being kind to our body and operating from ego ... you have no idea how much it works for me. Thank you ....really. Big hug.

Sean has very very kindly gifted me two months free practice as I, like so many people, have absolutely no income at the moment. And I can tell you this is keeping me sane with knobs on. Fiji you are an amazing practitioner you are inspiring and firm without hectoring it’s a perfect combination and I feel very strong and, as somebody else in the comments has already said, light. Strong and light after this fifth day of elevate I look forward to tomorrow.

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!
