Thank you for a wonderful practice, not just this one but all your practices. I don’t think I could pick a favorite amongst them. There is lots to say about how amazing you are but I most appreciate your careful attention to details, excellent cues and directions. I never have a “what on earth is she doing?” need to look at the screen to figure out anything. I can just listen, focus, and drop deep into my practice. Thank you.

Didn't get to do this live, alas, but it was still a treat. Like others, I love the glitches, giggles and problem solving. Just like real life.

This class works the entire body. I like the smooth flow from one pose to the next and the pace. "Shaking with Joy" is hard work. Thank you.

Loved this class !! I usually do the shorter ones but this hour flew!! With a mix of all the poses I love all collected into one. Thanks so much Fiji! Nice seeing your lighter cute side too in addition to the more serious super professional side we see in the edited clips :-) - - hope I get to do a live lesson with you someday soon - once this Corona mess is behind us! In the meantime im recommending you to all my fellow Israeli yogi friends!

A lovely practice. A whole lot of various asanas.
View was amazing. I did not do this live however I am sure it nice to practice with others live.
WOW! And I saw Fiji laugh for the first time in all the practices I have seen her in. Thank you, Fiji. :)

I just love Fiji and loved this class, as I always do. She just has such a sweet heart and calm presence. This class was just what I needed, even though I didn’t get to do it live. Wonderful class. Thanks again Fiji.

Other than the wonderful flow, I loved getting to know Fiji! And seeing how excited she gets when people she knows and loves are mentioned or present in the comment section :) Actually as I was doing this class after the live stream (I'm from Macedonia, which is kind of on the opposite side if the globe) I never got to ask this question that I've had for a while. I mean although I can Google it, I was hoping for Fiji's take on it (if she sees this): How can one decide if they're ready for YTT? Is it being able to do a lot of advanced poses an important part of it? I feel like there are a lot of things I need to develop - like arm strength - before I can even dream of getting into some postures properly (like Flying Pigeon), but then I wonder if YTT wouldn't help with that anyway... I'd totally do one with the DYWM team btw, once the covid-19 crisis is settled... and once I think I'm ready :)

Loved every single thing about this! That first bit of leg sequencing was intense! You were like, “and now from
crescent into warrior two...” I was like FIJI!!!! It was a sneaky move lady! :) Hit all the right areas where I was holding tension. Fun, creative flow. Thank you. Cannot believe I missed you on live stream! Next time?!?! Also, super jealous you are wearing long sleeves...

I did this practice after the livestream, but it was still a nice little treat. Felt like a very soothing yet invigorating sequence. Thank you DYWM for always bringing us new gifts all the time.

What a wonderful sequence of poses! Thank you Fiji!! I've been practicing to your videos for years starting as a beginner and this felt like a true integration for me. And seeing you laughing and relaxed was joyful too! Thanks to you and everyone at Do Yoga With Me for helping us all stay a bit more sane and grounded through uncertain times!

Was I the only one who had problems with the sound? The sound was on for about 5 % of the time :( Apart from that it was of course as always great.

This class was exactly what I needed, even though I couldn't have told you beforehand that I needed these exact postures, sequences, and comments (e.g., lifting sit bones when in squat, stretching femurs when in chair pose). I am forever grateful for Fiji's instruction and contributions to DoYogaWithMe. Huge thanks!!

So fun to do live stream with you! Your class was impeccable, as usual! I felt very energized at the end of class. Loved all of the poses and your beautiful words. Thanks so much!!! BTW I was doing your class from my back porch in Pagosa Springs Colorado.

Great Class! I found DoYogaWithMe during lockdown. I was so impressed with your teachings and those of others on the website that I just became a sustaining member. I love the way you transition from one pose to the next. I miss going to the studio daily,(I live in the US and Covid is a concern) but I now enjoy the convenience of an at home practice. Your classes have enriched my practice even further. Before Covid, I traveled extensively and would always partake in the local yoga studios. You are one of the best teachers Ive experienced in many cities around the US as well as the world. Thanks again.

I am so happy you found your way to us! This site has always been a gift, but now more so than ever allowing all of us to continue to practice when we need it most. Perhaps when it safe to roam the globe again we will practice together in person!

Yes! I think the beginning of the class got cut out, I explained it then! The intention of our practice is to awaken dormant energy, and potention. To once again get things to flow, connect and ignite within us so that we can grow, change, and evolve. I think we are being invited to take a big leap in our evolution right now, all of humanity is feeling the growing pains, it is time to stir it up and take part in our own individual and collective evolution.

Thanks so much for this wonderful class, which for me is an evening one to end my workday, as I'm in Paris, France. An amazing way to connect across the continents
