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!

I love Christa's teaching style. She pushes you with good humor and encourages you to go farther in your practice, while listening to your own body's needs. Great hip openers and strengthening class.
