I get the worst PMS back cramps. This class gave me the perfect blend of movement and stretch to those tender spots, when every other activity feels awful! Yet another win for Fiji!

My back loved this practise. Very gentle but with some perfect twists and intentions which made my back feel perfectly at ease and strong.

I am learning so much about lower back care through these four classes. There's always a tendency with vinyasa classes to transition in and out of poses without thinking about the strain it is putting on the lower back region. I often have a sore back so finding the time and space to open my back with care is proving very rewarding. Thank you Fiji once again for putting together such a great series of classes.
