It's frustrating when you feel like you can't do your regular yoga practice due to wrist pain. Fiji shows you how you can maintain the same intensity level of a power yoga flow, while keeping the wrists safe. She takes you through a challenging flow that strengthens and stretches the entire body, particularly the shoulders.

Style: Vinyasa Yoga


Deep shoulder stretches

I don't have wrist injuries but enjoyed this class for the shoulder stretches. I carry my life on my shoulders and neck and this class really helps me. Thank you.

Lifesaver for injured wrists

This yoga class really is a lifesaver. I injured my wrist while being shamefully drunk and so jogging and this yoga class are my saviour until my wrist gets back on track.

Loved it!

I have neither wrist injuries or wrist sensitivity but find practising Vinyasa yoga regularly creates quite a lot of tension in my upper back. This class was a great antidote - thank you, Fiji!

Wow, these stretches were

Wow, these stretches were amazing for my shoulders! I don't have wrist pain but I have been having some discomfort/slight pain in my right hand, so I decided to try this practice. I got a bit of a break for my hand with some of these poses and modifications and when I felt like doing the traditional poses (ex: downward dog instead of dolphin), I did. My upper back and shoulders have been pretty sore from weight lifting and I often have tension from my scoliosis in my back/shoulders/neck; some of these poses were helpful in easing some of that tension and soreness. Some of the poses were great to hold for leg strength as well.

Great break for my wrists

Injured my wrists a while back and this was a nice flow without having to suffer through chatarangas. Excellent instruction and appreciated the shoulder stretches at the end.

Very challenging, thank you!

This is a great class, thank-you for designing a class to accommodate wrist injuries! I don't have a wrist injury but I broke my forearm bones a few months ago and they are still healing. I can't do down dogs or full planks or any arm balances. This class works for me!

Much Thanks!

I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to do yoga after injuring my wrists. Thank you so much for providing this practice!

Nice break for the wrists

I've had sensitivity in one or both of my wrists for about 6 months but notice as I strengthen them more, the pain has decreased. This class instructs us to be mindful of the wrists, and focus on other ways of doing things. A new perspective on planks and Downward Dog. Thanks, Fiji!
