In this power yoga practice, Fiji invites you to breathe energy and light into your own sense of self. The asana practice can often be focused on our physical well being, but the benefits of yoga are far reaching and also enhance our internal well being. Fiji reminds us in this intermediate practice that we are each unique individuals with incredible gifts to offer. The flow she designed for this yoga class helps us tap into that sense of self, creativity and confidence, and increases our ability to share our unique light.

This is just what I needed after a long weekend of unhealthy ness. The power poses were held for the perfect amount of time. And I added my own savasana at the end.

A powerful, clarifying practice. Note that there’s no savasana at the end.

Great work and attention with the warrior poses. Excellent narrative to boost yourself if having a low day. Enjoyed this immensely.

Yesterday, I needed just that, Self esteem and empowerment. This class truly helped to trust in that inner strength, and started the day with right balance of power, harmony and, connection with self and others.
Thanks Fiji.

This was a tough one for me mentally--the physical grounding of the postures were amazing but my mind kept teasing the edge of release--I even stopped and started it over at the very beginning because I caught myself going down a dark rabbit hole of self-digust and doubt as we sat and just felt our breath move through the body. Classes like these are so important for reminding ourselves to meet our Self in the middle between the two extremes. To find, as Fiji puts it, "a voice that's not telling and a voice that isn't faint".

Great class. Lots of good work.

Thank you Fiji for helping me find myself in my yoga practice again after some time away from my mat. Without even realising it was absolutely the perfect first practice to restart and reconnect. Thank you!

I am in a strange moment where I have a good problem to have.. I am finishing my studies and there is no clear path of what my heart wants to do.. Many ideas, many possibilities in thought but no certainty. During this practice I started feeling the connection of 3rd and 4th chakra (self and heart respectively) and at the end I was crying out of an immense Love feeling.
Recharged with peace, and serenity. Certainty in God. Thank you for allowing this moment to be opened.
