I went in to day 6 thinking that I was not going to be able to do half the poses. I've always struggled with arm balances of any sort in yoga classes. But I surprised myself (and my kids!). Maybe because I felt more comfortable at home (I've only been doing yoga at home for a couple of weeks now), or knowing there is carpet underneath my mat and my falls would be less painful and less humiliating. Either way, this was challenging and amazing!

You are such an amazing teacher, Fiji. I loved the stretches in the beginning of the practice. All the changes from one position in the next were so well orchestrated it felt like a dance. I was able to fly a bit in crow because of the block and now I feel full of positive feelings.

I wonder if I will every be able to do these arm balances, but was totally into it. I felt like a child rising to a new challenge playfully. Interestingly, some of right shoulder and shoulder blade tension actually felt alleviated after the practice which makes me think that maybe strengthening this area will improve the situation.
Great series and great class!

That was great, with a lot of stuff that I could not yet do! I basically did not manage to get into ANY of the arm balances, haha, and then totally surprised myself by succeeding at the very last one! Had never imagined that I could do that honestly! Woohoo :) Thank you Fiji!

This class was challenging, but I love it! I found it very productive. Day 6 is one of my favorite classes out of the 14 days—— but The entire 14 days is amazing!!

WOW! This was intermediate and yes, you USE the shoulders. A good challenge. A "different" practice. Fiji is right to say "Changing your Perspective". Give it a whirl!!!!

Wow - so great to develop these arm balance foundations - and even fun-dations, with handstand hops!
So glad I didn't my mind win by feeling discouraged, and try them on.
Thank you Fiji, for literally helping us elevate in new ways!
