If you're having issues with the player:

Ardha Baddha Padmottanasa is very challenging, particularly the transition into the forward bend. It requires a lot of flexibility, strength and mental focus to do well. Fiji does it with ease, taking you through a couple variations and finishing with balancing on one foot in a squatting position.
