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/Power Yoga, Yoga for Strength

I do love this class, but I don't like that it starts with some pretty deep poses without any warming up.

Wow, this class is truly transcendent and a master class in vinyasa transitions. Don’t be deterred by the length of time - this class flies by. I feel rejuvenated and restored. Classic Crista - a beautiful class.

I think you just saved my soul or something. Genuinely thank you. I played my guitar alongside your singing and wept profusely. I was able to write the words “ I love you “ about myself for the first time in recollection. I knew this was the power of yoga.
I almost forgot I did the headstand for the first time too!

Oops...just too tough at this time. Moving on to the next day in the challenge. I’ll come back to this later.

I much appreciate Crista's positivity, humor and encouragement to always meet your body and respect your body for where it is at. I also like when postures are repeated 3 times through a flow so you can strengthen and try to improve. While challenging, very restorative by the end. She sang a mantra at the end that I have never heard done so beautifully. Longer class but it flew by after the most challenging first 30 minutes.

Definitely need a short warm up prior to starting this one!

This was fun. Got to keep your eyes open as you will miss something.

I need new roller skates.....

I would suggest like others here that a 5 minute warm up might help before you start the video.
