If you're having issues with the player:

This is the 2nd in a series of three classes that help bring you to the challenging arm balance, Firefly Pose (Tittibhasana). In this class, Fiji, builds on what you learned in Firefly Pose: Arm Strength. This vinyasa flow helps you strengthen and stretch your legs, preparing you for the strength and flexibility that is needed in the legs, hips and back. After you do this class - perhaps a few times over - you're one step closer to the deeply satisfying Firefly Pose you'll find in Firefly Pose: Workshop.

Equipment: Strap
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga, Yoga for Strength

Perfect class with the bonus of feeling the smoothness of the wind during shavasana :)

Love this class! After 3 or 4 times I've seen improvements in areas I haven't seen improvement for a while. Thankyou!

Fiji, I don't know what to say. This class is painfully perfect. I love how I feel after I complete your classes and this one is no exception. Thank you.

I really enjoyed this class. I especially loved utthita hasta padangusthasana and supta padangusthasana, which I find so infrequently being used in classes. I find they really improve not only balance and strength, but open and release my lower back, hips, knees. I don't use the belt because I'm quite flexible, but I love seeing the instruction with the belt. I can't wait to do class 3 tomorrow. Thanks so much. Namaste from Ireland.

This is one of my go-to classes for post-run stretching. My hamstrings feel so fluid and pliable after this class, and the reduction in DOMS is remarkable! Thank you!

Thank you so much, Fiji! My wife and I are doing the intermediate Empower Yourself 30-Day Challenge together and we loved the first two classes so far. We’re looking forward to finishing this series and doing yoga for the next 28 days together (which is hard with 2 kids and full time jobs)!

Thanks for doing yoga with me David! I love that the two of you are doing this together, such a great way to keep the motivation up! I am looking forward to doing yoga with you both in Mexico soon! I promise to do some firefly!

I love this session because it is full of energy and it focuses on muscle (strength, flexibility, and balance )

I couldn`t make it to your class live so I did this online. Just starting the 30 day challenge. Better late than never. I will be back to this class again.
