If you're having issues with the player:

In this vigorous power yoga class, Crista teaches you how to move from Astavakrasana (Eight-Angled Pose), into Eka Pada Koundinyasana (Sage Koundinya's Pose) and back. These challenging arm balances will test even advanced yogis, but Crista spends plenty of time warming you up with hip-openers, twists and back bends before you attempt the final peak pose.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

Loved this class, great hip openers, super fun flows!! I have work to do on the peak pose, so will be back often!! Namaste!

I absolutely love this class! Crista is amazing. Fun flow with the breath (flow from warrior two > reverse > whatever that lunge pose is called > surfer's and/or scandasana :D ) Great stretches and warm up for eight angle pose as well.

I just wanted to let any other yogis know that I found a really nice combination. I have been practicing Fiji's chakra classes and recently I did two days of the root chakra and followed it on the third day with Christa's hip openers. Thank you for the challenges and stretches Fiji and Christa.
