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

great class, the sequence of poses leading you up to wheel are different and flow well together. I love her kind voice and gentle spirit. Def a keeper

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

probably one of my favorites, crista does such a good job of challenging the entire body even while focusing on one pose. appreciate the advanced variations on traditional and common poses.

Beautiful!!!! And so fun! This will be another one of my favorites. Crista's energy is contagious :) I found myself smiling throughout the practice even during the challenging poses. That's the way yoga is supposed to be! I feel open and rinsed and happy!

Wow...my whole body feels like a warm noodle in the most awesome way. The peak poses in this practice are inspiring and something to work towards. Loved this, made me feel confident.

Whew - advanced for sure - but Crista's sweet voice makes you forget. Love her style and the backbends were a creative mix of moves - love the mantra and those HAH breaths!
