The title is no exaggeration. Crista has a reputation for creative - sometime crazy - transitions in her fun and challenging vinyasa flow classes, and this is one of her best. She also is very good at clarity, which is crucial in a class like this one. Get ready to flow, twist, bind, backbend, side bend, stretch deeply, do inversions, work your body, smile and then rest.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga for Strength


thank you for that gift

It definitely feels like this was a practice in 'gift' form. So challenging, but clear, and beautiful. Thank you. I was wondering what all the comments meant regarding your voice at the end, and now I know. :)

Great class and great mantra singing

I never fail to smile, and even laugh (Rollerskating) at myself when taking Crista's classes!

Physically and mentally rewarding

This class has such creative and fun transitions. I had quite a few 'Wow, that's cool, how did I end up here?' moments. Love those roller skating poses! Definitely walked straighter and with more awareness of a renewed strength after this class. Thank you Crista :)

Oh my gosh!

Oh my gosh! What an incredible class! It’s a long class-but well worth my time! So many fun poses-and poses that I have never even done before. I loved all of the ending poses as well as the long savasava at the end. And I absolutely loved Krista’s ending mantra! Thank you so much for leaving me feeling rejuvenated ! You are an angel!

Oh wow!

Wonderful class, but time is wrong in description

I want to give the moderator a heads up that the time in the description is incorrect. It says about an hour, but it's closer to an hour and fifteen minutes. Terrific class, but you may want to correct the description. Cheers!

Unbelievable Class Christa, It quite literally took me further with yoga than I’ve ever been at any of my classes and all these years I felt invincible amazing but yet very humbled and extremely grateful. Thank you this is definitely one of my favourite classes.. All my blessings to you can’t wait to do more like this xxx
