Fiji brings together the power of a vinyasa yoga flow and the deep, restful nature of restorative yoga in this wonderfully vibrant class. She begins slowly, building into a creative sequence filled with openers for the legs, hips, shoulders and back, then slows down again to take advantage of the body's heat by spending more time on deeper stretches, before sinking into sivasana.

Although it has taken me a lot longer than 30 days to complete this challenge, I have finally reached the end and feel that I have learned so much from such a lovely group of inspiring teachers. You have really helped me to get through COVID-19 lockdown in London. Thanks so much!

This class was a lovely balance, but I longed for more time in savasana. Maybe next time?

A beautiful blend of slow but challenging stretches and poses. And thanks to the bolster, I was able to hold the back bend which has been been a challenge for me in the past. Thanks!

First of all, I would like to say thank you to Fiji and the team because I again think this video is really amazing! I have a question. Since a couple of weeks my legs and knees really hurt sometimes, yesterday I did this yoga class and through most of the class my legs were really shaking. I never had this before. Today my legs are just really sore. What do you think is happening in my body? Also what yoga classes do you suggest to do now? I did not feel pain during the class - my legs were just really strongly shaking.

Thank you!!!

Hi There,

I am happy you like the practice! I am sorry to hear that you have had some leg and knee pain over the past few weeks, it is important to listen to cues from your body and rest when needed. Knee pain in particular is something to be very mindful of! There are few reasons that your legs may have been shaking during class, unfortunately I won't be able to tell you exactly why. It is most likely that your muscles were fatigued by the work load, this would also explain the legs being sore the following day. Muscle strength comes with time so be patient in challenging poses and give yourself the opportunity to take breaks.
