Thanks so much Crista. This was just what I needed. In fact, I think it’s my favorite of all classes I’ve done on this site. It’s intermediate, but not too difficult, and the instruction is perfect. I really like the comments about relaxing the mind as well as the body. With every breath, I felt the stress release from my body and the shivasana at the end isn’t rushed - perfect!

This is an exceptional class Crista. The movements and poses are so dynamic and fun. The transitions are great too. And it's paced to feel so effortless even though you're doing so much. And I love when you incorporate such fluid movements in poses that are otherwise very angular. I loved it, thank you.

You have taught me so much with this class! I have shorter arms and could never jump up to the front of the mat from downward dog. I noticed you tent your fingers before you jump, and when I tried this it gave me a couple of extra inches clearance and now I jump gracefully every time!! Also, you are the first instructor to mention that it's OK to have your heels a little off the ground when you do crow pose. I always struggled with this pose, but with my heels up a little I was able to do it and now my heels even sit on the ground most of the time. You are a very talented instructor. Thank you so much!
