Note: Our peak pose challenges are meant to be flexible, allowing you to do each class when it suits you and feels right. For example, you can do classes back-to-back on the same day or leave 2 or 3 days in between. It's totally up to you.

Introduction

Are you ready to fly? There is no other pose that makes you feel quite like firefly pose (tittibhasana). If you have never attempted this pose, or tried but couldn't quite get there, Fiji's expert guidance and well-designed class progression may be your answer. She's amazing at describing the subtle needs of a pose, providing clear instruction and designing progressions that work well for your body. 

Pre-Challenge Preparation

Fiji has created this so that you can quite easily do any of these classes back-to-back, as long as you have the time and energy. But, as always, listen to your body and don't push yourself so hard that you're stiff and sore the next day.

Class 1

Arm StrengthFirefly Pose: Arm Strength 45:19
Difficulty: Challenging Intermediate
Props: 2 blocks

The demand that firefly pose (tittibhasana) puts on your arms and shoulders is hard for many to manage, so Fiji helps you understand what it takes to get into firefly and moves you through a vinyasa yoga flow that helps the shoulders gain the strength and flexibility they need. 

Class 2

Strength and LengthenFirefly Pose: Strengthen and Lengthen 38:43
Difficulty: Challenging Intermediate
Props: Strap

In class two, Fiji targets the flexibility and strength that you will need in your legs, hips and back. It's a tough, challenging flow that helps you extend your legs and keep your balance when you're in the full pose.

Class 3

Firefly pose workshopFirefly Pose: Workshop 19:39
Difficulty: Challenging Intermediate
Props: None

In the last class, Fiji takes you in and out of firefly pose multiple times so you can feel it out over and over again, establishing different aspects of the pose in each attempt. Have fun!
