Ooh I loved this class! Apart from the shoulder work, and hopefully helping me move towards forearm balance, there was lots of good core work, and I felt it in the legs too! Thanks Fiji :-)

My shoulders frequently hurt, and I realize how much I need to focus on how I'm moving and holding my shoulders during my day. Thank you for helping me keep my minds eye on my shoulders and to strengthen them slowly and safely. Your guidance is reassuring and so easy to follow, as usual.

Fiji and I have a soul connection. I'm having stiff shoulders this last days and this comes up with the challenge from her that I always loved. I can't wait to work with her personally

Wonderful!

I wish I'd had this practice before I injured my rotator cuff! As I work toward recovery, this is exactly what I needed to focus my practice between physical therapy visits. It is simply wonderful. And I'm glad to see it's a series. Thanks Fiji!
