This is such a good class - it’s not just about shoulders, not just about strength; it provides some really effective stretches I’ve never seen before, and includes a lot of leg and core work. It’s a well balanced practice that strengthens and stretches the whole body.

My dream is to be able to support myself on my shoulders. I will have to do this practice everyday to allow myself to let go. I cannot relax into the practice , my anxiety to let go is too strong. I will not give up. I will keep practicing . Thank you Fiji!

This class is very challenging due to some long holds on the legs and arms. My arms are crying out from the effort, but I think that's probably a good sign. I would say this one is very, very effective for building strength and endurance. I need to come back to this one more often.

So good. Lots to practice. I have found areas I suspected were tight, but hadn't been so near them as to feel the freedom I will find in their realease. Love this! Thanks so much!!

I have been working through Fiji's back catalog for months - main intention being to uncover classes I never knew existed. This class justifies why I am doing this. It's an absolute cracker. Being 60+ minutes, it's a class you can really get into. Fiji's teaching cues are spot on, so detailed you could almost practice with eyes closed (I wouldn't recommend doing so!). As much as this class is about strengthening the shoulders and lateral obliques, a mention should also go to the quads which burn (in a good way) in the lunges. Seek out this class - you will not be disappointed. Another keeper of a class that I will return to over and again. Thank you Fiji.

A great class that I got the strength to do over a period of weeks by taking Fiji's other forearm balance classes. Almost there. Plus work at a wonderful studio here in New Orleans. Could never love yoga without the local real people who support and guide personally. I'm not all the way there yet but the classes have taught me so much. Stayed in crow yesterday for 5 breaths!!!
