did this video get posted by mistake?

Just wondering if this was posted on this page in error -- it seems to be the same class as the Postnatal Flow? Would love to see the Back to the Mat class as well! Thank you!

Yes, not sure how that happened, but you are correct. It has been fixed. Thanks for pointing that out!

Any variation for Cobra?
mantreh 3 months ago

This class is amaaaazing! I'm 3 months postpartum but still can't do up-dog and cobra because of my c-section scar tissue...slowly I'll get there. In the meantime, is there a variation during that flow? Thank you.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for this wonderful class! I practiced with Figi all through my pregnancy and it was wonderful to get back to the mat with her after five weeks of resting and recovering with my little one. I found the class just challenging enough but also gentle for my first time back. Many thanks ~kate

5 weeks postpartum and this

5 weeks postpartum and this is truly the first time I have felt strong, and somewhat "normal" again. Thank you so much for this gentle, yet empowering practice.

Love these - please more postnatal classes!

Fiji - thank you for these beautiful prenatal and postnatal classes - this one and especially the flow. Please, if you can, would love more and even longer flows (like you have for the prenatal), if possible. They are so integral to recovering post baby and getting back into the practice. Thank you again!

I am 6 weeks postpartum after

I am 6 weeks postpartum after an emergency C section and just got cleared by my doctor to exercise. This video was completely appropriate for where I am physically. I was surprised by the things I could do AND the things I could *not* do, so if you're recovering from a C section and would like to be extra cautious, wait to get clearance from your doctor to exercise before trying this out. Huge thanks to Fiji for an excellent, thoughtful postnatal routine.

My Baby is 15 years young and this is still a great class

Figi Figi Figi you are just fabulous. I have a nasty cold so I wanted a gentle class. This one was perfect , 15 years later I am still trying to open up that pelvic floor!

FIrst yoga class one week after giving birth to my beautiful little son and perfect to very gently start moving/feeling my body again. I will repeat this class for a little while, until I really feel up to more.
I do not only loved the selected poses, but also really appreciated the gentle and slow pace, that allowed me to carefully listen to this changed body, after my fourth (and not so easy-going) pregnancy.
Thank you Fiji and Doyogawithme!
