Great class. Hits all the right spots. Some of the queuing was confusing, but once I figured it out... who cares? Great class.

This class has been such a gift for me for a while now, and I love reading new comments from others enjoying it :-) It's like a Fiji's Greatist Hits class! I would love more of these advanced meditative-style classes

Fiji classes always bring me to a state of harmony mind and body. Words can’t express how thankful I am to be able to still do your classes after 8 years that I came across to DYWM and evolve from beginner to advanced classes and 2 two children :). Thank you Fiji and DYWM team!

Fantastic class! I feel balanced and my body feels happy-tired and energised. So good! I'll definitely come back to this one again and again 😁

Great class but HOW is it possible to go from wild thing to wheel without dislocating a shoulder i don´t know. Anyway, fun class for trying out ridiculously difficult poses.

I rotate the hand on the ground toward the middle of the mat while I deepen the backbend. While rotating that hand, I reach the arm that's in the air toward the mat and move my gaze toward the mat by deepening the arch in my neck. If the tops of my fingers touch the mat (of the free hand), that's usually enough for me to get traction, get the hand down and the then lift and fully reposition the bottom hand, then the feet. To get out is a bit trickier, but involves lifting and and turning (what will be) the bottom hand back to the start position. One side I can do it, the other side I just come out like a regular Urdhva D onto my back. Hope that helps, and please correct me if there's a better way DYWM family 😁🙏

I absolutely loved the sequencing of this class and the multiple peak poses. One request for Moving Meditation III, Fiji, can we please have 15-20 more minutes of your beautiful sequencing and cueing? Maybe in the form of a longer warmup before the first advanced pose.

I am extremely surprised at this class, because generally i have a harder time with fiji classes because of the amount of details given orally that would make it hard to stay focused. This one was absolutely perfect, not one time i felt like there was too much talking and i could follow it till the end with pleasure. great job

Such a brilliant class, I love the calm and gradual approach to trickier positions and transitions, and you are led in to them, before you know it you are doing it!
Thank you Fiji!

I enjoyed this challenging class; I usually follow the intermediate classes but wanted to try advanced for a change. However, a few days later my feet started burning/tingling and I am struggling to walk. I have pinched nerves in my heels! Any ideas?

Hi Lauren,

I am so sorry to hear that you are in pain. I have not heard about this before, I am not sure what has caused the pain. Burning sensation can be a sign of a pinched nerve, have you asked your doctor ? I hope you are feeling well again very soon.

Challenging and meditative at the same time. Really a very nice flow, great rhythm... just from the wild thing into the bridge I don´t know how to turn the hand which is on the floor ;-))

It was my first Advanced class and I was a bit scared. It turned out that I could do almost everything and I was surprised at how strong I am, thanks to all the amazing classes on DYWM. Keep it up!

I am so incredibly grateful for this practice today - thank you Fiji and DYWM! Like several others have said in the comments, I'm not quite there with some of the poses but it really didn't matter to how much I enjoyed it - and it was a joyeous realisation that I am stronger than I thought - in asanas and in mind! So I am sure I will come come back to this one. Thank you, and namaste to all enjoying this site :-) Katherine

What a great and intense practice. Well taught / guided by Fiji, as always. Definitely advanced however intermediate can do some of the poses. And, always modify.

What a wonderful practice! Exactly what I needed after a day of online learning with both biological and non-biological students! I could have stayed in savasana for hours(: One of my favorite classes of yours, Fiji. Thank you! Namaste!

What a fun practice! I fell on my butt both times when trying to get back into downward dog from wheel pose, which felt joyful in itself. Something for me to work on for next time, right? I love the wide variety of poses in this, and the unique transitions of course. I will definitely come back to this gemstone of a video :)

Holy smokes this is EXACTLY what I needed! Okay, want to ask a question though, I can finally hold Firefly (briefly) however, I have found that in order to elevate my legs- it is helpful for me to go on my fists, instead of flat palms. Is this common? Possibly due to body structure, or is it just a lack of necessary strength. I do have long legs, compared to my arms, so often it seems like leverage is not working in my favor. I would appreciate any thoughts. I don't want to be forcing a pose, just because I can. You know? Thanks much. Love this one Fiji. And I am excited to repeat this one after the 30 day challenge to see how I have shifted!

Delicious moving meditation. A perfect antidote to a hectic work day, week....
The choices offered to ease into the more advanced poses are greatly appreciated. My body feels wonderful.

Thank you! Also, love the woods. So soothing.

Just wow! Beautiful flow! I felt so energized and challenged in this moving meditation. I loved the play. I can't wait to be able to balance on my hands and cross my feet in front of me. Any suggestions to how to move into this one more easily? Would love more of these wooded advanced practices! Brilliant!

So happy that you love this one, it too is one of my favorite spots! The hand balance does come with time and play, practice it every week and you will be amazed at how quickly it unfolds. I like to make sure I am warm and open before going into it, and it helps to press your legs out with conviction to creat balance!

Wow. My mind is absolutely blown. This class is as brilliant as it is both mentally and physically stimulating; I LOVE the transitions. Plus I just can't get enough of the forest classrooms. I don't know how Fiji manages to outdo herself, but... That's what she do.
Thank you! :)

I absolutely loved this practice; a perfect combination of meditative + challenging + fun! I loved the level of intensity, the fun and unexpected transitions, and the overall feeling I have right now. I look forward to feeling sore tomorrow, or maybe even this evening LOL. Oh and the setting....just...perfect <3 Thanks, Fiji and DYWM team; you rooooock!! :D
