I Heart Backbends - Full Class

Advanced

Crista leads you through a power yoga class that will release your quads and hip-flexors, strengthen your core and shoulders and carry you into some deep backbends. We created a slightly shorter version of this class a few weeks ago so, if you liked that, you'll love this extended version that takes you just a little bit deeper!

I don't know why I don't do this practice more often, because it is exquisite! I'm always looking for classes with good quad stretches and this definitely delivers. That arm balance is one I need to keep practicing, but I was actually able to grab my feet in king pigeon which made me feel very special. Namaste!

Thank you very much for another wonderfull class. A good equilibrium in between hard poses that require a lot of energy and deep stretching that releases the body in different ways. Crista you have such a transparent energy and a beautiful smile :)

I love the outdoor setting of this somewhat challenging class. I liked Christa's use of "please," the "tickle, tickle," and the fist pull downs in this challenging class with a relaxed, informal feel. It is always nice to have options to some poses, especially the wheel which my body just can't do.

This class is wonderful throughout! I've done it a few times now and I look forward to each and every sequence. Great for opening the side body, low back, quads and chest (everything really), and for feeling generally excellent afterwards :-)

I was a bit scare to see "Christa" with "Advanced". But I gave it a try, knowing that Christa always gives a lot of options for trickier poses. And I am so happy I did it! It was exactly what I needed, really big, deep strech in the whole body, proud that I gave a try on harder poses, but choosing the options that suited best for me anyway. Thank you so much Christa!
