Holy hips! I will revisit this one for sure. I love pigeon even though I still can't get fully into the pose. This practice will certainly help!

Challenging, but enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for the recommendation to put a block under the hip for the pigeon pose, first time I could relax into this. Flying pigeon isn’t happening but love trying!

Brilliant practice, so much thought into giving us time to ease into the hip openers. Walking pigeon :). Good balance challenge. I feel better. Thank you

I've been kickboxing 5 days a week for a while now, my yoga practice has suffered for it. This was the first yoga I've done in about 3 weeks, and damn I needed it! What a wonderful reminder that my body NEEDS a daily yoga practice, especially your classes Fiji!

Thank Fiji. After 4 hours of mountain biking with a couple thousand feet of uphill that was exactly what the hips and legs needed. Namaste!

What a nice release! I had such a dull energy and tighness in my LE today. This class fit perfectly for that. BTW, love your hair, Fiji!!

Wow! After 30 miles of running this week my hips and IT bands really needed all these pigeon variations! This practice is a must if you are a runner!

That was great. We are into nearly two weeks of lockdown here in Spain and your classes, which I do daily, are really helping me get through it. Thank you Fiji, and thank you DoYogaWithMe for making all these new classes available. It makes a huge difference. Namaste.

As a runner, I struggle to release the tension that builds up in my hips. Thank you so much for this fun and challenging, yet relaxing practice. This, along with many of your videos, will become a go-to! Any chance you'll be working on a video for strengthening the pelvic floor?

Great class! I loved the walking pigeon at the beginning of class. My body was able to really get into a deep pigeon pose with your excellent cues and slowly easing into it. I loved how we lingered in the pose! Thank you, Fiji, for another wonderful class! . . . And my hips thank you!!

Some great brand new poses to try! More than other positions that focus on the lower extremities, I found this practice exceptionally helpful for my recalcitrant plantar fasciitis. I appreciated the slower transitions from one pose to the next.

Great detailed instructions, it's the little things, how much pressure on the front foot during pigeon pose, breathing, etc... that makes a great class. Thank you.

Such a good feeling! Really inventive and compact class. If you have tight runners hips and know you should stretch them more, do this class. Or if you're secretly addicted to pigeon pose...

Perfect balance between stretching and strengthening. Definitely a hip-opener with some poses I haven't tried before!
