It would be nice to expand this class more. Perhaps to an one hour session? Thank you very much, Crista, you always inspire me.

Crista, this class is comforting and playful. Such a pleasure moving with you and feeling the grounding support of your presence. I loved the shoulder stretches and creative flow. thank you

I was prepared, thanks to others' comments! The peak poses were beyond me, at this moment, but I flowed through.

Sometimes I laughed as felt like I was playing twister, but the movements felt good despite my clumsiness.

I have yet to use a playlist in DYWM as prefer quiet, or the sounds of the birds or ocean waves, but appreciate the option if wanted. Thank you!
