This class is a godsend!
Firstly:
- Ladies, I can't recommend this one enough for those times when those big hormonal shifts/drops leave you feeling especially depleted. Seriously, what an utter panacea.

But secondly, I do have a question for Fiji:
- Regarding the variation on Virasana/Hanumanasana nearer to the end of the class, with one foot folded back, the other leg outstretched, in order to lean forward over the extended leg... Where, ideally, should this stretch be felt? Is it intended to target more of the hamstring, the lower back, or the IT band? I can see, for example, that you (Fiji) manage to keep your foot/toes pointed pretty vertically, where as mine seems to need to roll outward (and it thus gets into the IT band the more I let that happen. Which honestly I'm a little too hungry for all the time...). I do have some mobility issues with my hips/hip flexors and a somewhat weak pirifomis (working on it), and sometimes "grumpy" knees. As well I do have, eh... a little "extra" in the thigh/glutes area... But I'm otherwise quite strong/flexible, so I'm simply hoping to determine where I'm at with this pose (anatomically versus flexibility).

I hope that makes sense! I do recognize, each time, the need to just listen to my body to go where "we" need to go, but I've run into this pose/situation in at least one other of your classes, and I'm trying to determine where to focus the effort & surrender (what to hold, what to let go). I tremendously appreciate your time if you manage to get to this. Thank you so much!

Hi Cate,

Thank you for speaking so highly of this class!!! I also love the depth of detail you shared here in your question, it really is a beautiful inquiry to read. The answer is already in your sight, it is intended to open the hamstrings, however by placing awareness on your foot you can shift the impact to different regions of the leg and hip. I would encourage you to stay with the hamstring when needed and shift to the outer hip when that feels more potent to you!

Fiji, you are wonderful. I can't thank you enough for your warmth & reply (I've been pondering over this for so long!). I truly appreciate your time and consideration. Onward with greater awareness I go! Thank you again!

From now on I'm going to think of "shaking with joy" when I'm doing challenging ab work. I love that reframe! <3 Thanks for this practice!

One of the best practices I have done with DYWM. A shorter practice however one that invoked many emotions and made me feel wonderful upon leaving my mat at the end. One to do many times!

Wow! Just when I thought I had found my favorite classes with Fiji, this one comes along. I have been stressed out and overwhelmed and definitely not showing up in my life as my very best self, but this class was just perfect for filling me back up! Thank you to Fiji and DYWM for producing such outstanding content.
