If you're having issues with the player:

Fiji takes three classes to prepare your body and mind for revolved bound side angle pose (parivrtta baddha parsvakonasana). This pose requires that you are very open in your hips, spine and shoulders and that you can move into, hold and move out of the pose with support from your core. In this class, Fiji focuses on how you move into a twist with a strong foundation, ensuring that you have good alignment and that you're getting the most out of the pose. The second class in this series is Revolved Bound Side Angle Pose: Reach and Wrap.

Equipment: Block
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

Oh, I so love twisting! It's a nice wringing out of the bad Ju Ju. Thank you so much, Fiji. Namaste

A great challenge! I love how she very gradually builds into the twists and has you considering each direction of movement; it makes a huge difference in how it feels when you build up to the peak of the pose. A bonus: the legs will be nice and sore tomorrow!

I want to thank Fiji for her amazing work. I used to practice youga 3-4 times a week with my youga teacher for 4 years but then I had to quit. So now I`m trying to restart) Ay first I was thinking «Well it is too easy» but later... wow, that was challenging! Thanks!

I wanted to do some nice deep twisting after a day of working at a desk. Fiji gives us just that. Livia mentioned her legs were burning. Me too. An added bonus :-)

Thank you Fiji!

I’ve started my yoga journey by follow almost all of Fiji’s classes and her 14days challenge serie. This class is quite a challenge even the poses aren’t tricky but they gave me a great legs work out. My knees and calves were on fire in a great way. I always have calf pain after work but completed this class, i am no longer noticing my pain is there any more!
Thank you for such a great twist class. Definitely redo it more often
