This is the post I have been waiting to share with you the last few weeks. I don’t even know where to begin, but to say that I am so excited, grateful, thankful, and proud to be able to introduce to you someone who has made such a huge impact on my life. When I started my yoga journey two years ago I blindly went into it not really knowing what I was looking for. That is until I happened upon DoYogaWithMe.com and found Fiji McAlpine’s videos. I soon fell in love with her classes, the way she instructed, the words she said, the beauty she brought to the art form and expression of yoga. The first video of Fiji’s that I tried was her Advanced Backbending from the Base class. It was absolutely stunning! This is also the practice that inspired this post of mine! Another one of her videos, Power and Precision, is one of my all time favorites as well. It took me awhile to actually build up the strength and courage to complete this practice in the beginning, but now has become one that always leaves me feeling strong, beautiful, and confident. Through all of Fiji’s videos I have learned so much about myself and my practice. I have gained so much confidence and self-love. She really is the reason why I fell so in love with yoga and the beauty and power it has. She taught me how to actually focus on my breathing and allow my self to let go and fully accept Savasana at the end of my practice.
For my college Common App essay I even wrote about my yoga journey and Fiji’s impact on it. I hope some day I will be able to actually take a live class with her and meet the woman who inspires me everyday! When I say her on Facebook I ended up sending her a friend request and to my surprise she accepted it! I had to then message her and tell her who I was and just how awesome I think she is. I then asked her if should would like to come on the blog and do an interview so we all could get to know her better. She accepted and is now here to tell us all about herself and her yoga journey! I hope you all enjoy this and are as excited as me to learn more about a truly inspiring yogi.Read More
