Who doesn't like a class that releases your hips? Crista's unique approach will not only do that - with style! - she'll have you doing foot balances, arm balances, arm binds, deep stretches for the shoulders, legs and lower back and, of course, core work. Her smile and fun energy will carry you through the many tough, challenging parts of this class, encouraging you to move, stretch and push your body to the limits in a thorough, satisfying way.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga
