Today was more about intention than execution. I am excited to come back to this practice and move, millimeter by millimeter, into the full expression of the poses.

Whoa...this is a challenging class. I'm not following the 14 day program so maybe that's why I'm bumbling around. I've got to do this one over and over to get better. Thank you.

Challenging however powerful! You will use your upper body and you will also get a great release of the upper body.

I also learned a lot from this practice. Thanks again to Fiji!!!!

Loved the great instructions and the way the class really prepared your body and mind for the arm balance poses. Definitely saving to my favs! Thanks Fiji

This class was great. I admit that I took a good three day gap between day 8 and day 9 because I was expecting this class to be more challenging than it was and my energy levels didn't feel up to it, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn today that this class is actually pretty slow and gentle. Good practice for arm balances, and I felt very strong in all three given the extra instruction and care moving into the poses. Thanks, Fiji!

This class was so helpful in learning the different sensations between the various arm balances. I feel fine with crow and firefly but it is the first time that I got a taste of the teeter towards crane, and the pivot forwards in crow to eventually push my legs back. Thank you for a slower timing and more precise instructions!
