Strength to Surrender: A Yin to Yang Flow

Intermediate I
It takes courage to truly let our guard down, to release deeply held tension and patterns of meeting resistance. This practice with Fiji will flow through the ebb and flow of yin and yang energy. We will learn where and when to engage and how to fully release the body. To establish balance within, we need to bring balance to our practice.

This class was yoga-awesome. Following the breath energetically and metaphisically trains one to gain equanimity in life. Thank you.

Hi Fiji-
This was a wonderful class. Thanks so much for offering it.
Hoping I can ask two questions-
1.) Is the idea in this class that when we were doing more slow flows that there is yin energy in the surrender and yang energy in the places of effort?
2.) Is Hatha yoga a great example of these two energies dancing?

Thanks for this knowledge!

I love this! My whole body feels balanced and relaxed after lots of sitting, walking and snow shoveling. I have to remember this and find my way back regularly. ♥️

Hi Fiji

I love your classes and always find them strengthening and calming. But I hope you don’t mind my saying that sometimes I feel there is too much commentary. I find it difficult to sink into my practice with so much continuous description of what we are doing and sometimes it would be nice to have more silence.

Having said that you are a wonderful teacher and thank you for all your classes.

I love the lack of distinction between yin and yang here, how we shift back and forth with ease. Needed that mixture of challenge and rest tonight, thank you.

What an incredible class! I was even able to do my first backbend after six months of yoga practice. Thank you Fiji.

Exactly what my body needed. I’m having some pain in my left body and I’ve been craving more yin type movements, but the yang energy of this kept me warm in a way that made the passive holds feel even more restorative. Thank you Fiji! I will return to this one.

I have been practicing with your classes for many years and this one is my favorite thus far! I tend toward taking more yang classes although I know I need more yin in my life. The principles of striking a balance makes this a powerful practice. Thank you!!

How joyous to have a new class with you, Fiji! You do a beautiful job, as always, in guiding us to center and connecting us with our breath. While practicing today, I felt a new hope that the world was beginning to return to its center as well. Namaste.

Wow, I've been a follower of Fiji's for years, but this class is my new favourite. It has a little bit of everything, especially for the present environment. If you're feeling a bit low on energy but want a class that will restore and subtly refresh you, look no further than this class.

@Fiji- I did a class filter for yin/yang style today when choosing my class, but only saw this class by accident under the 'new classes' posting. I think this is categorised as a vinyassa class? Perhaps it would be good to tag as yin/yang so anyone searching for that style can easily find this yummy and delicious class too?

Thank you Fiji, for a nourishing, explorative, and encouraging practice. Sometimes, as you say, the right teacher comes into our lives when beneficial, and on DYWM, as there are many teachers who teach with spirit and generosity, it seems as if there are so many practices that enrich our lives! With much gratitude!
