Quite the challenge!

I have been able to do headstands for awhile, but the pressure in my head didn't quite feel right. This class allowed me to finally understand how to use my elbows and shoulders correctly. I did the headstand without any pressure to my head! This was a wonderful class! Thank you!

A huge thank you to Fiji and David - for many months I have been struggling with headstand to the point that I would start to panic if I knew one was coming up, but today that finally changed! Your class was perfect! I did a headstand! And now finally understand the importance of stacking the body and pushing into the arms to lift rather than putting pressure on the head! Thank you so much - you have helped me overcome what really was becoming a barrier to my practice! I hope this message gives a positive boost to your day as your class did mine :D THANKYOU!

Great class

I've done this a couple of times now and really like it, it's a great class for building strength in arms and shoulders! I'm looking forward to being able to raise my legs with practice. Thanks Fiji

That was great! Although I can do headstand, there's some fantastic tips in it, and a great workout. Nice one Fiji!

Thank you for the terrific instruction at all stages of this class. I have done headstand many times before but have never felt so clear in using my shoulders and forearms. I was definitely challenged by the class, as I have lost most of my upper body strength in the last few months. Fiji is a great instructor and this website is such a gift.
