Class Description: 

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.


Wow! I started this class sad

Wow! I started this class sad and angry. You helped me release negativity, opening my body, mind and heart with your creativity, challenges and delightful spirit. The ending chant with your beautiful voice was the perfect conclusion. Thank you, thank you!

Wonderful. One of my favorite

Wonderful. One of my favorite classes. Thanks Crista!

I didn't want to do this class...

I avoided this class for two days because I was daunted by the description of it. I didn't think I would be able to do the poses or have the patience to do such a long class. I finally buckled down and completed it today and I'M SO GLAD I DID! Crista's teaching style and motivations really helped me stay positive and push through the more difficult poses. I feel great right now and confident that I can finish this 30-day challenge strong. Thank you for the wonderful class, Crista. I will definitely revisit this video :)

A little more prep work would be nice.

I would like to see a little more prep work preparing the body and mind for some of the more challenging poses offered.

Yes, I always jump right in

Yes, I always jump right in on these online classes, so I recommend doing 4 sun salutations (you can do them with me on doyogawithme!) before beginning my other classes. Thanks for noticing that!

Thoroughly Enjoyable

This was challenging and fun. Occasionally it was laugh out loud funny. Crista is a bright and creative instructor. As I'm coming out of lower back issues and an ankle injury, I really appreciated her careful attention to options. Many Thanks

Crista is such a fun crazy person ^_^ This class is one of my favourites! The flow is creative and challenging and Crista is her usual bubbly, smiley self. I find her attitude soo contagious. Being nice is nice! Have fun! Thank you Crista <3

Contagious Smile

I have practiced with many of your videos and this one was extremely challenging. I find your flow liberating, your energy inspiring and your smile contagious. The Canadian in me giggles with each "please" as we transition poses. I am newer to yoga, practicing seriously for only a few months but have been wanting to start for a long time. I love this site and often turn to your classes. I find yoga worshipful - community, prayer, meditation, inspiration and to add song was a beautiful beginning to meditation for me today.

Beautiful voice

And I forgot to mention your voice is amazing! What a beautiful way to end the class.
