Thank you. While doing it I realized that most of these movements I was doing intuitively. The bridge pose wasn't good for me, but the rest was good. Would love more and longer.

Mid last year, after back to back migraine episodes, I made a request to David and Fiji for a session to help with migraine. I didn't realize until today that you had made one and put it on the website. Thank you so much. Hope you both know how much this means!

I am so happy to hear that this has been helpful for you! I love class suggestions, all we want is to film classes that our yoga family will love!

Thank you for this quick and simple class. I was not sure it would help ease my headache and it totally did. I love Fiji, the woods that you were in were breathtaking, thank you for sharing it with us.

This really helped, will be returning time this again and again, ready to hit the pause button so I can stay longer in the poses that feel the most beneficial. Thank you xxx

Not only did this class soothe my head physically, it soothed my mind. I can now start my busy day calm and collected. Thank you Fiji and DYWM.

This also helps to relieve the sinus pressure before it becomes a sinus headache. Wonderful!

Perfect start to a usually stressful first day of school. My 27th year working in a high school is going to be the best because of this start to my day. Thanks

Perfect class for a fuzzy head due to wildfire smoke in the air.
So beautiful to see Fiji in the fresh green forest meadow, and practice calming gentle moves with her.
Thankyou Fiji and DYWM for the whole spectrum of classes and themes!

I woke with a terrible headache and this lovely class has definitely taken the edge off. Thank you, Fiji! Agree with a previous comment re Fiji always bringing in new classes to help us feel better and live better. And one of my favorite things about DYWM is that most classes are shot outdoors. Love, especially during cold winter months -- I can imagine I'm doing yoga on a warm beach :) Many thanks.
