Steady pacing and calm cueing through this whole practice. My stiff, tired body (after a mtn. bike ride today) definitely appreciated the twists.
Thank you.

You take a twist practice to another level with your wise words. I will look for what I can let go of, what has already served me but is no longer needed. Namaste, Fiji.

Fiji: I really value your guidance. I seek out your classes and invariably enjoy making the effort to rise to the challenges you present. I have one request, though: Those of us who have had a low-back issue are usually advised against deep forward folds. Would you consider building an alternative into your classes? Again, I love your work and am grateful for it.

Hi David,

Thank you for your kind words. Yes this is a great point, I will explore some options that might work and still keep you in the flow of the practice. One option that jumps to mind is sinking into chair pose, this also lets you get your hands on the ground easily to step back. Another option is to do ardha uttanasana or half way lift, this can be done with bent knees too and puts the spine in flexsion rather than rounding.

Those are exactly the alternatives I've been using, thanks for validating! So far I haven't blown out my back, at least. Thanks for the reply and all you do!

Amazing class. I have definitely let go of something here and feel lightened and fresh. Headache I woke up with is gone! Thank you Fiji:)

Fiji guides us through a twisty practice that will make you feel AMAZING once done. Her words and movement flow perfectly through the practice. This is a bit challenging however she provides modifications. This is one worth coming back to time and time again.

I have been experiencing alot of stress and anxiety lately. This class helped me to really wring it out! It truly hit the spot for me. Thank you Fiji for a great class and reminder to wring in and out. Love your hair! Namaste

Very effective, fun, and relaxing but also revitalizing. I'm getting better at side crow so I appreciate more opportunities to play in it!

Real Fiji like! Slower but still hard on the muscles haha! I liked it. Still find the twists the very hardest part of yoga though... Any other tips? For example after quite some years of practice I still don't manage to keep my knees together while twisting from chair pose.

I am happy to hear that you like this new practice! I agree twists are energizing! Everyone has components withing their practice that come fairly easy, and that are more difficult. Simply being aware of the movement in the knee, which actually comes from the hip shifting back and up, is a step toward decreasing the rotation. Doing the best you can to turn your shoulders idependently of the hips is making for a potent twist.

Great class, and love the new hair Fiji! All those twists felt goood. I haven't been able to do side crow since breaking my collarbone last year but can do crow pose, hooray! Thank you for a great start to 2020 (doing this as Day 7 of New Year's 30 day challenge :-))

Fire-y in spots (specifically my quads, ha!!) but I appreciate the opportunity to notice where my mind goes when sensations become intense. Nice overall wringing out of the body -thanks!

Ahhh I love twists! I enjoyed the feeling that you gave time to expand into the twists, not rushing. This was nice for a day when I want to move a little slower and go a bit deeper and relax into the postures. So happy to have some new practices from you - thank you!

Loved this class. Challenging but still fun. Although I have been trying for years, this is the closest I have come to crow and side crow. Thanks for another great class Fiji (and I too think the new hair looks great!).
