This was fun and playful, even with all those pushups. Hehe! I really enjoyed the nature sounds in the background during savasana, they reminded me of a carefree summer day and really helped me to unwind and relax at the end of the practice. I love learning new variations of crow and side crow, too!

Thank you, Crista, for another great practice. Can always count on you to share a fun and unique flow with interesting transitions. I'm not always up for the peak pose but you are a treasure so I'm always happy to wait patiently wherever I can go.

I was so excited to see a new class from Crista so had to try it right away! Side crow eagle legs was a bit far for me but I enjoyed getting as close to it as I could, then I just did a normal crow. Absolutely love how Crista closes her classes, with the big sighs and relax, relax, reeeeelax.... ooh yeah it makes me so happy! Thanks Crista xx

Namaste Crista! This was another lovely, unique class. Side crow (which I’ve never done before) felt effortless how you guided the flow right into it! I love how you close with a chant, and the new option of playlists to go with the class is great too.
