Note: Fiji says you need two blocks for this class, but you can also use two books of the same thickness. In part one of Fiji's 3-part series leading you to firefly pose (tittibhasana), she works on strengthening the arms. She emphasizes the muscles that are needed in this challenging arm balance to prepare you for the final peak pose, that you will be doing in part three. Fiji's focus, intelligent progression and clarity make this class wonderfully fulfilling and energizing. This class will get you where you need to be for the next ones in the series: Firefly Pose: Strengthen and Lengthen and Firefly Pose: Workshop.

Heck yeah! Holy wrist action. Loved the thigh push at the end! Well balanced so feel it all over even though focused on shoulders.

Great class. Challenging enough to build some good strength. I am surprised I’ve never done this one, but it’s one I will come back to.

Amazing practice! It's both invigorating and challenging. Loved the call to remember to release and soften while building strength. Thanks Fiji!
