Fiji gives clear and mindful instruction in this beautiful class. There are a few positioning tips that are so important to hear over and over. Fiji, thank you for your expertise that comes through in a way that gives me calm and confidence.

This is an excellent session. We truly enjoyed it. My wife and I sometimes have to take breaks in other sessions with extensive sun salutations because the flows cause dizziness. This one affords the opportunity to practice asanas without intensive sun salutations. Loved the sequence and the clear instructions. Thank you!

I love this class! Felt very grounded at the end. The chipping birds are a beautiful soundtrack. Thank you Fiji!

I love the attention to earth energy and grounding! Also the birds in the background are so nice. I was confused about the use of the block, though. I couldn't tell if it was for modifications of poses or purposeful for all of them. I found the block useful in some poses but downright distracting in others. But then, I'm one of those people who really doesn't like props unless it's specifically for modifications! I spend more time arranging the props for proper alignment than enjoying the pose.

This was a lovely way to reconnect with the power of rooting, and a lovely reminder of the rebound energy that brings us upwards. Thank you.

Great inspiration working with a block in many of the familiar poses, made it more easeful, in my case first thing in the morning. TY Fiji🌈

This was perfect, classic 30 minute Fiji practice, not too difficult, just right.

Perfect class for me this rainy, chilly evening. Haven’t heard birds sing like that since last spring.

Happy New Year to all that have joined in! Thank you for a wonderful class Fiji, I always love when the classes are outdoors and the birds are adding joyful noises. Great class... I'm not quite rising to crow, but something to work on for me.

A good start! I’d never tried coming into a headstand like this before, and it was much easier to feel stable this way. I learned something new! Thanks, Fiji!

I did a week of easy classes to reconnect after three years of hiatus due to shoulder injury. Grateful for muscle memory and body recovery. Slowly does it. Blessing the beginner in me again. Thank you!

Absolute great start to the challenge. As someone who has started to reconnect with their practice this sequence was just the right amount of challenging to get the heat going within.

I have been with DYWM for 6 months now and I’ am so grateful for this platform, the teachers, and the staff that help make it all possible.

Looking forward to some juicy poses/sequences in the following weeks.

Cheers!
