In this intermediate flow, Fiji invites you to use sensation and breath to tune into the moment and into yourself. The steady pace and attention to the subtle body will allow your mind to sift through distractions and anchor your awareness in your movements and your breath.

Style: Vinyasa Yoga

i just love the steady pacing and allowing us to get into the poses, the lack of distracting music and the challenge are so welcome in your classes

Love this one!

This sequence is so calming, I love the pace. Plus, the 21-day Get Strong challenge must be working for me because I can finally lift and hold myself up off the ground at the end! So proud of myself, and thank you Fiji!

The whole sequence is very meditative, slow and strengthening. The hips feel stretched and relaxed. Thank you.

Very challenging and thought provoking

I found this class very challenging and it pushed me (in a good way). I backed off some poses as I did this in the morning (I think I'll do this in early evening next time when I'm not so stiff) and my body was still waking up. Thanks Fiji for a great class!

Three words to you Fiji.... I LOVE YOU

Staying calm and listening to my breath

Wow! I was so much into listening to my breath and feeling my body that the 50 minutes flew by. This practice is what my body needed to release stress, my spirit to trust and my mind to remain calm. Thank you!!!

Quads were fired up!

I loved this session and found it really challenging. Fiji's instruction was patient and on point.

My quads and hamstrings were on fire at points during this session and I needed to stop to shake them out sometimes. So I can get a sense for whether I'm working the poses correctly, does anyone else who has done this think that that was the intent? Regardless, very happy with the class as it was challenging and most certainly got my heart-rate up.

Great Question

I am happy that you enjoyed the class and the challenge. This one was created for those yogis out there who have a fairly high yoga stamina. While the level was set with that group in mind, the message really is to tune into you, and take each moment and pose as they come. I find that for many of us we are over working in a pose, which may contribute to that burn you encountered. A great question when you get into a pose is where can I soften, what effort is skillful and essential and what effort is not necessary?

Thank you

Thanks, Fiji. That advice helps as I continue to push myself.

Intense for me, too.

Yes, I also found this pretty intense at times - definitely felt shaking and heat in my quads and hips. The subject line of my comment after doing the practice was "Call the fire department!" :-)
Personally, I find it easier to "tune into" myself during less intense classes. Perhaps the goal is to be able to learn to tune into myself when things get physically uncomfortable/intense and when my mind gets distracted w/ thoughts (or prayers for the pose to end! lol)
