Hippity Hips

Advanced

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.

This is a well put together practice. I enjoyed it a lot. Only thing is near the beginning when we're on our backs with legs in the air, breathe in as we lift chest and twist up - that in breath does not feel right, i my body feels it should be an out breath during that move.

To my surprise I got through this class (awkwardly here and there of course). I really enjoyed the shoulder stand at the end. Thanks!

Wonderful challenge. I will definitely come back to this class at my favorite time of the day to practice: early in the morning.

Great hip opener. Didn’t love the more challenges poses and just did other stretches during them.

I’ve been looking forward to a full length class all week, and this did not disappoint! I’ve been meaning to try this class for a while - it was as fun as I expected. I love Christa’s creative sequences.

Challenging but very fun to do class even though it is advanced. I enjoyed Christa's sunny presence. Beautiful and relaxing end to it also. Thank you.

I SO appreciate the creativity Crista brings to all of her classes... I am always focused and in the moment in her classes, as I can never anticipate what might be coming next. Love it!

I'd been eyeing this one for a while but always thought it would be too difficult for me, turns out it is within my range! I could only do the arm balance on the left side, but not on the right, so I'll keep practicing.

This class is challenging, of course, but also surprising and fun. Crista’s voice is so nice when she sings at the end!!

Fantastic practice! Like many others, I was a little apprehensive about doing an "advanced" level class. I was amazed how much of it I was able to do, with Crista's gentle and cheerful guidance. Tight hips are the bane of my existence. I will come back to this practice often. Thank you, Crista!

This was both a fantastic workout and a deeply moving spiritual experience. Crista's laughter keeps everything in perspective (when you're deep into a video that's way out of your league) and the song at the end was beautiful. Thank you, Crista!

Wow, fantastic. I never would have attempted an advanced class if it weren't part of the new year's challenge. Thank you so much. This felt wonderful. DoYogaWithMe excels in hip opening classes and this one is the best yet. I can't wait to do it again.

This class had me smiling and at moments even openly giggling while swinging my leg actively from side to side. It was a great balance between challenging postures and enough movement to loosen you up. My favorite class from this challenge so far!

This was an interesting and unique flow! I was apprehensive at first because it has been awhile since I attempted an advanced class, but Crista builds the poses beautifully making this class accessible even if you aren't quite to the full expression of certain poses! I always enjoy the incorporation of mantras in classes, as well!

Well, that broke the ice for me. I have now attempted an Advance level class. Not all perfect, but not as scary as I expected. Crista makes it all seem possible.

I will definitely try this class again. It was just a bad morning for me but I think, on another day, I would really enjoy this class. Crista is so upbeat and easy to follow.

I was nervous going into this advanced class, but I'm so glad I decided to do it. I had to make some adjustments, but Crista's instructions were perfect, and I even managed the peak pose. Very happy I came to the mat today.

Loved the uniqueness of this class. I struggled to find a focus and real flow in this practice, but still am happy that I started my day with great hip-opening stretches and balances - many that were new to me.

Amazing way to start my Saturday! Not just great for the hips, as the title suggests, but also for the shoulders, and lots of good twists too :)
