Another beautiful class with Fiji - I feel so fortunate to be able to practice virtually during this time of studio closings and staying home. This class cleared my head for the rest of my day.

This was a great class for my upper back which has been sore after too much computer work. Thank you again Fiji for another amazing class. I am always pleased to try a new class by you.

Thank you for another fabulous class Fiji! This was energizing and calming in equal measure, I have been doing your classes for over 8 years now and still always find something new and rewarding every time! So much gratitude for these classes and this site!

That was great - the reminders to explore and honor my body's abilities was very helpful in quieting any critical thoughts I had about not being able to do the full expressions of a couple of the poses. I don't think that the pretzel-y, balancing seated pose will every be a part of my practice, but I appreciated exploring the steps leading to it! Overall, a nice class offering challenge in a gentle and nurturing way. Thank you!

I liked this class a lot, but I was struggling with a lot of negative emotions and ruminations all day, and unfortunately I continued to battle those things throughout the practice as well. As a result, I noticed that I was really having a hard time in some of the postures (half-moon especially). Next time I try this, I will do so on a day when I have a clearer mind and see if it makes any difference.

I came back to this video today with a clearer mind and heart and noticed quite a difference! I still struggled a bit with half-moon pose, but I found I was able to really focus and savor the practice this time around. It's a very sweet sequence, and I think I will revisit it often :)

I have been a student of DYWM (especially Fiji) for years and this is my first comment on a video. This class was amazing, exactly as the title states: mindfully exploring the edge rather than forcing an expectation or setting yourself up for frustration/disappointment. Practices like today reminds me of the millimetre miracles I've accumulated and how good it feels to move and get to know my body, even if it was difficult to get myself to the mat in the first place.

Thanks for another beautiful flow. Your balance of yin & yang (or as you put it, forward & inward) focus has been really helpful in shaping my personal practice. Thank you for everything :)

Also, this class may be mislabeled as 'advanced', it seems to me like much more of an intermediate flow.

Thank you for the feedback. I've changed the class to 'intermediate'.
Take care,
