If you're having issues with the player:

This fun power yoga flow class is full of heart opening and back bending, with lots of time spent on releasing the quadriceps, hip-flexors, internal hip rotators and strengthening the shoulders and core in poses like side plank. This is a slightly shorter version of Crista's full class, for those who are short on time.

Equipment: Strap
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

I love this class. At the end of it, I manage to do a three-legged wheel. And the class is very relaxing and well-paced. Thank you, Christa! I love your classes! <3
