Renewing Power in Flow: Twists

Intermediate II

Fiji redefines 'power' in this flow class by warming the body with vinyasa, then delivering a creative series of challenging twists. Highlighted by her amazing attention to detail, this vigorous class will leave you feeling blissed out and full of life. It is the first - and one of the shorter versions - of a series Fiji calls 'Renewing Power in Flow'.

Thank you Fiji, I returned to this practice again, a wonderful challenge, I struggled to maintain the breathing patterns, but "felt" a little stronger in the poses. Your clear instructions and subtle ques wonderful, thank you.

Wonderful class! For 20 years I’ve apparently been dropping my hip on twists and it felt amazing to do it correctly, thank you!

Thank you for this challenge Fiji, I'm probably not yet up to this level but your careful guiding instruction made every adjustment and move clear without my having to look at the screen. I will try this class again and again ..

Killer class fiji!! Thank you for explaining how to stabilize the hips during a twist in lunge, I haven't had that explained in such detail in any other yoga class I've taken and it really changed my experience of that posture!!

This is one of my favorite videos on the site! A challenging, full-body workout that leaves me sweating and with a feeling of incredible accomplishment. This class simply flies by. No equipment needed other than your mat.

Question - the toes turned in and knees together on the wheel near the end seems to tweak my sensitive knees, is there a wider foot/knee placement variation?

My partner and I are die hard Fiji fans. We've done nearly all her classes. I think this class is more advanced than intermediate. Quite intense pace, but great class nonetheless.

Still a wonderful class! I used to practice it five years ago when I restarted yoga after an injury. It really brought me back on the mat and gave me strength and power. After years I did it again today and it´s still wow! I love the fast and strengthening flow. In its steadiness it´s quite meditative. Thank so much for it, Fiji!

I don't know why, but I found this class particularly intense and shook a bit and my breathing went ragged. I'm on 71 days straight of yoga, so that may partially be it. I also had damage to my olecranon when it was broken in a crash and therefore Vashistasana is something I am relearning (especially on the right side where the damage was/is). I'll come back to this practice or try the longer version(s) as I progress through healing. I feel this is an advanced intermediate due to the intensity. Thank you. Namaste from Ireland.

Amazing vinyasa class! Very well balanced. Picks up speed gradually and gets to a good pace. The sequence is quite close to a traditional ashtanga practice.

I have probably made my way through this class at least 50 times. Clearly, I find it appropriate and useful for me. Fiji's verbalizations are perfectly timed as she speaks while doing the poses. Her explanations are clear, reminding me repeatedly of things I know but don't remember to do. Finally, I appreciate her reminders about living life- although I sometimes scroll through the early storm! THANKS to all!

Fiji is one of the best instructors and takes you through the class with such excellent flow. This helped open my tight back so much this morning - exactly what I needed to start my day! Thank you Fiji and DoYogaWithMe community - keep up the excellent classes!!

I am so glad I saw the title Renewing Power as that is how I'm feeling. I'm thankful that I had a little more time today to accept a greater challenge. I hope I continue feeling this sense of renewal as I actually get up and move through my day.
I enjoy Fiji's classes and always hear something that touches a need. Today one thing was Fiji's direction to try rolling outward on the feet which impacted a stiffness I've felt in my ankle.
With Appreciation,
Becky

This was a very difficult, challenging class with excellent instruction. I feel really proud of myself and like I pushed myself to my limits. Yet it was also relaxing and centering. Thank you for this wonderful practice!

Fiji does an amazing job of giving great cues and creating an invigorating flow. I'd have to say she's the best instructor I've ever had in my life!

Fiji's instruction is wonderful. She guides you into the pose, calling attention to specific alignment in a natural way with just the right guidance to make adjustments the feel right. I felt very refreshed and challenged in each pose, almost like I was doing these poses for the first time despite them being so familiar. The class builds a gentle heat, with a slow flow that accelerates slightly in the middle -- the perfect point to loosen the muscles and go deeper. I'm very grateful for discovering this class and recommend it to everyone! Thank you for sharing your practice, namaste!

I have tried several teachers and classes in this site. Now I feel compelled to write as I have probably done this class a dozen times. Her very clear, thorough explanations make me concentrate, requiring real effort on my part and producing a very satisfying experience. I will now try some of her other classes as well.

Hello from Ukraine, Fiji! I registered here only to thank you for the beautiful classes you create! I have been doing yoga only for half a year now but I've noticed a big progress. And I have never had injuries while doing you classes. You're great! Thank you once more.

I am a beginning yoga instructor but have been practicing for a while. I really liked the way this class opened up my hips and my core. I feel really warm and helped me really appreciate the twist and movement of Vinyasa Yoga.

Fiji McAlpine's flow videos are becoming my favorite. She provides the occassion for challenge yet she offers clear guidelines for successful posturing. Here, Fiji's instruction in regards to hip allignment becomes my work for the session. Thank you for keeping me aware and helping me to safely find stability in these twists. I will continue to use your videos to deepen my independent practice.

Thank you Fuji for a challenging, yet renewing and opening practice! Although--at the end of the video, it seemed to get cut off with no formal ending :( . Just stopped between bringing the knees together and that was the end of the video at 58 minutes.

Hi MoonGlow, Glad you liked the class. The video does have a formal ending and goes beyond 58 minutes. I just tested it and it seems to be working okay. Maybe a temporary bug?

I just went back to the video and it seems it was a glitch. The part where my video 'ended at 58' was really the 40 minute mark. I guess the universe was telling me that I was done with my practice for the day :). I am excited to do the practice again tomorrow for the entire duration. Thanks!

It was a wonderful session with you Fiji, am also new to this website. I used to go to yoga classes, but now with kids and job, these online classes are great to work anytime we find time for. Only 1 remark : You were sometimes going to fast, not really enjoying the breathing,specially when doing the cobra, plank to downward facing dog... Otherwise, keep on being so wonderful!

I am a new member and found this site by mistake. lets call it destiny.
I am so impressed with the articulation of descriptions for the poses from Fiji.
I have been practicing yoga for a long time , many styles and teachers through the years and I continue to be honoured each time I come to the mat for another class with Fiji; her acuracy and thoroughness of the descriptive language used is far more comprehensive than with any other teacher I have studyied with . She seems to be a natural.
I wish I lived close enough to study with her in person. I am so grateful to have found these classes and will definatly be making a donation. thank you. and namaste.

After 11 years away from my yoga mat, I have restarted with your videos. I had a pretty vigorous practice then, and am glad to find my poor old body has plenty of muscle memory!! Started with a beginner Vinyasa video and did that twice, but this Intermediate video with twists really hits the spot. I found my old flow , rhythm and breathing with vinyasas, and great heat and intensity by the middle of the practice.
I fell out of Ashtanga yoga because I couldn't coordinate my schedule with the studio's. This way of practicing allows me to stick with it at home, and fit it anywhere in my day... fantastic!
