I wish there was less explanation of every pose. I found it distracting. With a bit less explanation, there would be time for more variety of poses.

Thank you for this slow, thoughtful and purposeful class. It took me a minute to be here for this class, but I am glad I stuck with it.

I appreciate all of the detailed alignment instruction! This is definitely an intentional class with a focus on form. For those saying it wasn't "relaxing" or there was too much talking...I've actually never been to a Vinyasa/Power Yoga class that felt particularly relaxing until the end, so it could benefit you to use the filters for a different style of yoga. My one suggestion might be to say the name of the poses a bit earlier so that students don't have to look at the video at all to see where we are going. But maybe that would interfere with the way you are trying to set up the pose for the best alignment? This was quite a bit slower than the vinyasa classes that I am used to, and the holds were a real challenge! It's always good for putting my ego in check to do something different. ;)

Fiji, I find your instruction so helpful. It really helps me to feel perfectly aligned and engaged. I love all of your classes, holding positions in place can be so challenging but also empowering. Thank you for really helping me to hone my practice.

Fiji I love your moves but you talk TOO much!! It is so distracting and I can't get through any of your classes.

This made me chuckle, Lara, because, apparently, Fiji talks too much for YOU, and it is certainly OK to speak your preference, your truth. Does she speak too much in some absolute sense? Who knows?! The amount of guidance Fiji gives in this session was helpful to me and, in fact, I return to it as a way of ensuring I remember key aspects of alignment, movement, energy. I imagine you, Lara, are further along in your practice than am I, and you might prefer the direction with less instruction/guidance? In any case, it's wonderful to share practice with you! :)

This class is primarily an alignment instruction to keep your spine aligned properly in a several different postures. If you are looking for a quiet meditation, save this one for later, as it is about 90% dialogue. A good refresher I could see going to 1-2 times a year.
There were the 2 most "difficult" postures popped in the middle of the class - their timing felt a bit unexpected to me. We went from chair to bum on heels, and then to an arm balance.
It was obvious I hadn't done longer lunges and holds for a while, much needed!

Thanks for the lovely yoga. But is it possible to talk less during the yoga. It's so hard to concentrate and not really calming when doing yoga wit a lot of talking. I'm sorry, i hope you do not take this personal. Thanks, Namaste :)

This is an old message, but I just saw it.'
Samera, just a recommendation.
I personally love Fidgi's instructions because they are so thorough. I feel that without proper coaching, I would be doing a lot of wrong things. For me listening to her is like having a personal coach. Have you tried to do the session just by listening without looking at the video?

This practice was a workout for my mind. An excellent way to get out of ones head and into the moment. I feel oddly exhausted yet fully restored. Thank you Fiji for bringing such attention to the energy loops of my body which go so often neglected. Love this one!!!!

Wow another excellent Fiji class. The detailed instructions addressing our specific parts and where they should be and how they should feel is very helpful. I feel like I just got a private instructor who was looking at me and helping me correct every pose. BRAVO! Fiji is instructing while going thru the poses, and experiencing as she addresses each pose. THANK YOU.

This video is no joke. If you are doing the moves from the right place, it is quite a challenging flow. If you pat attention to Fiji's instruction, there are many opportunities to make corrections to your alignment. Form and strength. This class is my favorite on the website.

Wishing the first few minutes, the music got very loud and overpowered her voice. It only lasted for a short time but it was very distracting.

Great class to do when you want to learn or re-learn the basic asanas. For the first time I really understood what it means to "pull in your rib cage" ;-) Very clear instructions! Thank you

One of the best ways to advance in your practice is actually to go back to the foundations of your poses to learn again with a new strong sense of mind and body. Instruction given to us as beginners is often too advanced and goes right over our heads, hearing it again when we have a greater yoga vocabulary and subtle body ability can make a huge difference.

I'll echo everyone's praise. This was quite challenging for me; yet I feel that by continuing with this, I could really make some progress. Particularly liked the frequent reminders to focus on the tailbone and lower ribs-- so needed and so helpful! Thanks so much,
