If you're wondering if you're doing chaturanga, plank, warrior one or the vinyasa flow correctly, this power yoga flow class for beginners is a great place to start. Fiji takes the time to break down each pose, focusing on alignment and how the pose should feel to you. Fiji occasionally holds poses for longer than she normally does, so remember to take breaks if you need to.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

Comprehensive Vinyasa Pose Explanations!
Although I’ve practiced Vinyasa yoga for some time, I’ve never had a beginner class that provided such a thorough introduction to the poses. This summer I’m doing beginner classes like this one to fill in the gaps in my yoga training.
“Tick tocking” the legs and knees is new for me because I learned it as “windshield wipering.” “Tick tock” brings an image of an old German cuckoo clock which I prefer to the slap-slap of a car’s windshield wipers.
Thank you for the beautiful outdoor setting of this class!

Thank you so much. I am still new to yoga and was not sure I could do this class, however, your complete and clear instruction throughout helped me to achieve the poses feeling properly aligned and strong. Ifelt the heat and it was very rewarding. Thank you Fiji!

One question please, I know to externally rotate arms for downward dog, but when in plank pose I am not sure whether to be externally or internally rotating my arms. Thank you for input.

This is a great class to remind yourself of the importance of a mindful practice.

Fiji really takes the time to explain all the cues for each pose. But because of this, she stays in certain poses very long (or way longer on the first side). This makes this a perfect beginner routine, but not that suitable for slightly more experienced practicers who want to move along in a nice flow.
