This is a brand new DYWM class format. Fiji has designed this video with a peak pose in mind (Wheel Pose, or Urdhva Dhanurasana), and has built the class in 3 sections, with the purpose of preparing your body to move into wheel safely and effectively. The three sections are: 1) Warming up to wheel pose, 2) Moving into wheel pose and 3) Deepening wheel pose, and you can stop with a short Savasana after 1 or 2 and take weeks or months to move onto part 3, when your body is ready. Even though we call this a workshop, it is still mostly a flow, and typical to Fiji, it is challenging. Give us feedback below. If you like this format, we'll do more like this in the future.

Holy moly! I've been doing wheel pose for a while now, but had never thought to try walking in it, what a challenge! I especially like the reminders to keep the toes turned in to conserve energy in the legs. I love back-bending and would love to see more videos dedicated to it. Thank-you, Fiji!

Look at me, Ma!! I'm in Wheel!!!


Slowly slowly getting there with all these great instructions but also, this is a great flow just to do for itself.

I really liked this. I think it was a great idea to do to the video in different sections but keep them all together for people to use them for progression. The time went really quickly and I need to work more for to hold the final poses for the full length but I really enjoyed all of it.

Maybe section markers could be shown on the time bar if people want to skip the middle bit but I personally enjoyed working throug the whole thing.

Thanks Fiji!

Thank you for this workshop class!
I really enjoyed the warm up and the switches between wheel and dophin pose. However I was a little frustrated as there were too many resting times for me, so my body didn't stay warm during the practise but cooled off too quickly in between the poses.

Looking forward to more workshop classes, but perhaps with more continuity of strength building and keeping the body active and warm and a little longer releasing and calming down at the end.
Love, Katharina
