fabulous breathing class

This is my new favourite class, and bringing the breath of fire in as well is just perfect. I cannot do the knee to the back of the arm sliding up and down move *at all*. I suppose I'll get there with practice, and building strength, but if there are any tips that would help be get it, I'd be very grateful. Namaste and thanks as always dear Crista!

Awesome and unique practice

Love how you integrate the breathe into the practice. The breath is so healthy for the body. The class is challenging enough to keep me engaged throughout the practice. Thank you for your awesome video!

Great class!

I love how Krista incorporates the breath of fire into some of the poses. Also, love the alternate nose breathing as a wonderful way to close the class. Enjoyed all of the shoulder stretches as well. Thank you for a well balanced and fun class!

Nice balance of postures and pranayam

I still struggle with Bakasana, but Crista made sense for my body type (I'm very flexible) as I always struggle to keep my knees in my armpits. Taking the inner knee to the outer arm works much better for my body because then I can squeeze and lean forward. It's a matter of time, and I'm trying very hard not to be frustrated with myself. I loved the core work and working to the edge of opening shoulders. Namaste from Ireland.

My favourite class at the moment, I love the pranayama throughout and for some reason crow pose felt loads easier - the headstand transition feels a little unnerving, not sure how to do that without crashing on my head! I've felt really balanced at the end of the class each time, fractal patterns around the ceiling light must be a good sign anyway. Perfect, thanks so much.

I LOVED this class! I wasn't able to do everything this first time, but it gives me opportunity next time. I feel stronger and and more flexible AND more centered at the end of this practice. Thank you, thank you, thank you Christa!
