Thank you. Pacing was just right, you prepared us for the poses, you loosened our hips. And for someone with perpetually stiff hips, you prepared us for pigeon -
the so called "easy" shape that isn't easy for me - it's still isn't, but it was much more accessible thanks to your instructions. Leaving the mat feeling better than when
I got on it.

Fantastic class Crista, hips have never been as hippity! As a runner, I think this has done me a lot of good. I love your energy and general approach too. Thank you so much :)

I manged the peak pose one both sides without falling. First time doing the pose too. Amazing for me! ; ) I so love your classes, Christa. I always feel so refreshed afterwards and on an amazing high. Thank you : )

Whenever I do one of Crista's practices for the first time, it's like I'm going on an adventure and I don't know what I might find. This one was no exception. The time flew right by, even with some of the tough stuff. I fell backward while doing the peak pose on my right side, but I managed the left side just fine. I'm eager to come back next time and see if I can master both sides!

Thanks so much Crista for this amazing and creative class! I felt so fantastic afterwards (BIG yoga glow!!!). I would love to know the spelling of the posture at 32:32, I heard you say something like "kaliviravasana", but can't find any reference to in on the Internet. Could you please spell it out for me? It seems like a prep pose for, or variation of visvamitrasana. Thanks !

Hi there! Thanks for asking! The peak pose is a variation of Kala Bairavasana. In the full pose, you put your foot behind your head! Have fun!
