This power yoga practice is an intermediate level flow with elements that will challenge the advanced student. Fiji's intention with this yoga class is to help you to physically and mentally find your ground; to create and trust your own strong foundations and to cultivate deep roots. Fiji guides you through a series of poses where gravity becomes a friendly force, helping to create steadiness and ease in the moment.

Wonderful calming class
LucyHB 4 days ago

This class did exactly what I hoped it would! I was looking for something calming during a rather turbulent time, and this was perfect. The pace was calming and soothing. It's definitely more gentle than Fiji's average advanced class, but full splits and flying pigeon are always a challenge! I couldn't do either today but I was calm enough not to mind :-) Thank you Fiji!

Wish it had more advanced flow.

Love Figi and her every class, but I was bummed that this wasn't as "advanced" as I had hoped. I loved the grounding aspects, but was disappointed that there wasn't any flow or faster pace to it. It felt more instructive and slower paced so would be a good intermediate or beginner grounding practice. This would be a great morning wake up practice, though. I did find the long holds a good challenge. As always though, I am very inspired by Figi!

Will come back to this one again and again!

I agree that advanced is the appropriate rating! I really enjoyed this class. It was the perfect challenge and I can't wait to do it over and over again until I can hold the poses as long as Fiji and do the split and full arm balance! This is the first class after many (lovely) classes on DYWM, where I felt really compelled to write a review... and express my appreciation. Thank you Fiji, this is my new favourite practice!

Should be categorized as intermediate

Great class, but neither “power yoga” nor “advanced” in my opinion. There is too much instruction for an advanced class, plus the pace is rather slow. I suggest moving it to Intermediate status, which I think is a more appropriate fit.

Love this class

I have foot issues, which affects my ability to balance on one foot. I love this. I will probably do it a few times a week. It's a good challenge for me

Change of pace

Fiji, your classes continue to inspire and impress me with your ability to provide such a variety of yoga styles. Your harder classes have some of the fastest paces, and now you offer this slower class that allowed me to truly focus on how my body was feeling as I was challenged to try all of the moves. I also love the intermediate classes that tip toward advanced. You are helping me cultivate a practice that challenges me physically while allowing me to tap into the true beauty of yoga's mindfulness. Thank you for continuing to create creative classes. I love all of the options on this website.

Amazing class! I did this

Amazing class! I did this after the Chakra 3 flow and I liked having such an emphasis on grounding. Thank you!

Strong and grounding poses with long-ish holds.

Grateful to the other yogis who commented that this was do-able for someone at an intermediate level! Strong and well-paced with opportunities get deeply into the pose and to modify as needed during the 2 advanced poses - full split and flying pigeon (I think that's what it was - correct me if I am wrong!) Thank you, Fiji.

Accessible but challenging

PeacefulRN I came here to say the same thing! I am an intermediate student who likes to dabble in advanced classes but knows there will be poses I can't do (the two you mentioned actually), or can't hold for as long as Fiji does. I find the rating on this class very appropriate. I think I would have been disheartened had I found this much challenge in an intermediate-rated class. As always Fiji's guidance is perfect. Thank you DYWM.

Challenging but do-able!
