This full-length power yoga class will leave you buzzing from head to toe. It's a tough class the pushes you hard, but allows many precious moments for deep stretch and rest. Crista is such an amazing guide since she peppers the class with smiles and encouragement, even through headstands, splits, deep hip openers and a sweaty vinyasa flow.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

Fantastic practice, thank you. For the first time in a long while I had goosebumps and my whole body was tingling all through Savasana. This class has left me with a natural smile that feels like it might last all day. Thank you so much.

Wow....I got farther than I thought with the handstand. Had my feet off the ground a few seconds. Way more than ever done before. Just goes to show, keep practicing and laugh when you fall out. Enjoy the ride. Like you need to try to do with Life. : )

Thank you for another great practice, Christa. As usual, feeling a great high. : )

This is a most satisfying practice! I don't know what happened, last time I did this I was able to do the eagle headstand, but today I could not. Thinking maybe I wasn't positioning my head and hands correctly, or I'm just not as strong as before, haha! But either way, I'm going to keep coming back to this one to work back up to it, because it is so fun. And I love that there's a brief pose for a cow-face stretch mixed in there, because that always feels so wonderful. Thanks for being awesome, Christa!

I really enjoy Christa's classes. She balances the difficulty of the poses with a lightness and humor which I greatly appreciate. I hope to see more from her in the future!
