Energy and Intention

Intermediate II
This practice invites us to bring a devotional quality to the energy and intentions within the class. When we consciously put purpose into each movement and gesture, we open ourselves to being fully present and involved in the practice as it unfolds. It also allows us to embrace the benefits of our practice on multiple levels. This intermediate flow incorporates the use of mudras to allow for that heightened state of presence and purpose.

That was absolutely amazing! I really loved the combination of a flow and the mudras. I'll try to incorporate them more into my own practice (and teaching eventually:-))

LOVED this class. I mean, I love pretty much all of Fiji's classes, but this one had a different feel/moves from the others, which was refreshing.

Such a calm and yet very precise class! I loved it. And managed to do full wheel the first time since elementary school...probably because I was so relaxed. Thank you!

A wonderful practice that is intermediate level however could be modified for beginner/advance yogis/uoginis. Fiji, as always, provides wonderful explanations of various aspects of yoga and femine/masculine qualities. The mudras are helpful and you will walk away with energy and intention if you commit to the practice and live in the moment. I thoroughly enjoyed this practice and will do it over and over again.

I truly resonate with Fiji's temperament and teaching style, and have been practicing yoga with her videos for the last three years. I hope that one day I get to attend one of her retreats! That would be a dream come true. Thank you, Fiji, for your grace, eloquence, compassion, intention, accuracy and positive energy.

I've been using this yoga platform for nearly 9 years. It has been such an incredible way to practice no matter where I am in the world and for that I am truly grateful. For years I only did classes from David as most of his classes were Hatha and it was perfect for me in those earlier years of my twenties. Now, I find myself truly resonating with the way Fiji teaches and I honestly didn't think that would happen and I'm so grateful it did. Shoots dude, its incredible how through a screen I honestly feel and therefore know you care so much about those folks all around the world following your patient practice. Its a humility that I find deeply engaging and real. Thank you so much. All of you, not just Fiji and David. Y'all are a gift.

I can't tell you how many times the right teacher has shown up at the right time. My long time teacher and friend often reminds me that when the student is ready, the teacher arrives. I really believe that our practice is an evolution, or part of our own evolution. That being the case, how we practice and who we learn from changes over time. I am honored that you have practiced with us for so many years and that you can sense how much I care about what I am sharing. I feel incredibly lucky to share my own journey of learning and evolvement through the classes here!

Wonderful intentionality and consistent awareness throughout.
Loved this mudra / devotional practice - helped me balance out these two aspects - and 'even' sided of my body.
Thank you Fiji! Amazing how much creativity you bring to the classes!

Could not get past opening breathing with focus on "soft" feminine side and "strong" masculinity. I realize this may be set in centuries old practice but today those gender stereotypes are hurtful and outdated.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this, you are right concepts of masculine and feminine are deep rooted and looking at and challenging them is very important in this day and age. I will consider wording my intention more clearly around this, a great challenge for me as a teacher which I welcome. The intention here is the understand that within each of us exists the two dynamic and complimentary energies of Shiva and Shakti. There is a need to be strong and take action sometimes ,and the necessity to be soft and nurturing at other times. You are correct that a gender is not needed to describe those qualities and I will be mindful of that in the future.

I agree with the comment above the gendered language is not necessary and it makes for less inclusivity. As a trans person this language was very distracting and not very beneficial to my own practice. I appreciate your willingness to learn and be open.

I liked the breathing practice at the start and appreciated the reminder to make the practice devotional and sacred.
