About Fiji McAlpine
Fiji McAlpine is one of the founding yoga teachers featured on the website doyogawithme.com, an internationally-renown site offering quality yoga instruction, for free, to users around the world. Her online popularity has grown significantly over the years, giving her global reach in the online platform, and has allowed her to offer frequent guidance to thousands of students each week. In addition to the online offerings, Fiji teaches in local studios and leads worldwide retreats and workshops each year.
Her strong vinyasa-based practice is derived from the extensive, diverse training she started in 2001, when her yoga love-affair began. Initially, her main focus was based on Ashtanga and the Jivamukti school of thought. Her focus has since evolved to incorporate many other limbs of yoga, which is why her practice is so diverse. Her teaching has been greatly enhanced over the years by her constant curiosity and willingness to learn and apply new information.
Peter Sterios, a friend and mentor to Fiji, has helped shape her approach to practicing and teaching yoga, offering the important idea of a sustainable practice.
Her intention as a teacher is to offer a practice that invites us to be the constant gardener on our mat. Through dedicated effort and regular practice we can begin to cultivate more of what we want in life and in our world. Fiji reminds students often that we are constantly changing as time passes, as we grow and learn. Yoga offers us an opportunity to be present and active as those changes take place and to be conscious participants in our own evolution. “Every movement on your mat matters, make it precise so it on purpose and for a purpose.” Her classes are the ultimate dress rehearsal for life, essential perspectives, and ways of being that we practice time and again so that we are prepared to do it right when it really matters. If our practice can help all of our thoughts, words, and actions come from a place of center then it will truly help the world shift in the right direction.
