Interesting combinations
ljh101 3 months ago

Interesting combinations/transitions of poses, especially for standing splits. Crista's classes are fun and lighthearted, and because of that it doesn't feel like a fail if I can't do the most challenging poses; it just feels like play. :) And beautiful nature sounds during savasana. Thanks!

So much fun!!

I did this video for the first time a few days ago, and already want to do it again, it was so fun! Like Christa's other practices, the transitions are very fresh and creative, and I felt so wonderful after the class. I still can't get into a full-fledged handstand, but trying is half the fun I reckon!

I like your sessions for

I like your sessions for several reasons but especially because you don't talk too much but get right into it. ( I know, typical guy comment, right?) Thanks for another great exercise!

Deliciously Delightful

This one is everything I have come to love about Crista! Hamstrings feel a little jelloish, but it is a welcome feeling. I’ve been asking for more handstand work, this fits the bill! Can’t wait for the advanced version Crista. ;)

That was a new experience!

Good to get out of my pattern of strictly flow classes. This was a do-able challenge for for me with some new poses. My middle-aged wrists were protesting a little at one point, and my hops were clunky and tentative, but I appreciated Christa's encouragement and options for modifying the poses. Deep stretches for hips, shoulders, and hamstrings. Thank you!

This class was fun and playful, as well as great for stretching my legs. Would LOVE to see a headstand peak pose challenge class.
