Up, Down and All Around

Intermediate III

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.

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

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.

Fun and surprising and challenging. I think I looked pretty funny at times as I attempted some of those transitions - but it's never good to take yourself too seriously anyway :) :)

A challenging practice for me but I surprised myself on many occasions. This challenge has been a wonderful start to my year, I've tried so many different styles/teachers as a result. Thank you.

I got a bit mixed up with my video order during this challenge, but I want to say from my heart that this particular practice came to me just as I needed it. I was pleasantly surprised at every turn, Crista's smile is surely infectious!

Wow, I never had so much fun tumbling over! Skater's pose is a little beyond me, but it is fun to try. No damage but my pride, which is the point, I believe. Great class, very challenging but encouraging for this sort-of-intermediate. Thank you, Crista.

I found this routine awkward. I couldn't seem to connect with it. It just didn't flow well for me.

This class was everything I needed this Sunday night. Both my body and mind feel loose and ready to settle into a nice long rest. That mantra at the end ensures that I will return to this class time and time again. Thank you Christa!

This class was so beautiful, from the first pose to the final mantram. Crista´s smile and lovely way to desrcibe the poses makes time fly and each pose a darling not a challange. Thanks!

I love how Crista gets moving from poise one. Lots of fire right away that immediately awakened my bones and joints. This is a favorite, and I'm lucky to have had 1+ hour to do this class today. It's definitely a new favorite, and great chanting at the end, a gift!

That went so fast! I didn't think I had the energy for a full-length class today, but Crista proved me wrong. The class was so inventive and just the right level of challenge for me today. Some great stretches too. Thank you Crista!

couldn't have said it better myself! I read the description and decided to do 30 minutes of it, and ended up doing the whole thing! Awesome video.
