If you're having issues with the player:

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.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

Thank you! I discovered Figi's classes after baby was born(post natal class great) but unfortunately have had severe carpal tunnel and tendonitis which has made yoga a challenge. I really appreciate this class allowing me to get into some good poses without exacerbating my injury, which I tend to do.

Really strong on the shoulders and much needed rest for my wrists! Lovely to get a proper shoulder stretch in too, as mine were aching after lugging a heavy toddler around. Thanks so much Fiji!

Well worth upgrading to the $5 a month... as a massage therapist, my wrists are my main worry in yoga, yet I need yoga to keep my body (and mind) happy and functioning. Thank you for providing a class that I'm sure many people need. My shoulders feel amazing and my wrists are happy.

As a flute player I struggle with wrist problems on days where I have practiced my flute with intensity and want to also do some intense yoga practice. This video is the perfect solution to that - intense enough to keep my interest, therapeutic enough to make my wrists and shoulders feel better, and presented wonderfully by Fiji as she guides you through some modified movements. Love it.

I do not have wrist injury but it may happen as I put too much weight on them. The class helped me working on my shoulder strength and opening. Thank you Fiji!

I developed a very small cyst in my right wrist as a result of too much power yoga. Negligible, except too much chatarunga can flame up some serious pain. As such, I have to very careful with the strain I place on it, and this class was the ticket! So glad to have this!
