If you're having issues with the player:

This class may not be considered advanced by some yogis, but it's close. The emphasis is on fun in this 2-part series with Crista. In this class, part 1, she leads you into eka pada koundinyasana II, a challenging arm balance that requires a lot of strength, focus and balance, skills that Crista teaches you in this 40-minute vinyasa yoga class. This class leads to Koundinyasana Fun II, where you will be going through this class again, then proceeding on to Crista's 2nd peak pose, eka pada koundinyasana I. You can find both classes together in Peak Pose: Pose Dedicated to the Sage Koundinya I, which is on our Peak Pose Challenges page. You may need a block or firm pillow for this class.

Equipment: Block
Style: Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga for Strength

The link to this class is pointing to koundinyasana II rather than I. I thought I was taking a 37 minute class but it was 71 minutes.

I love your classes! You make me try advanced poses with a smile!

The instruction is good, the pace is vigorous, the peak pose is aspirational (for me)!

I get lazy and don't want to exercise...the 10 minutes before I start a class is the hardest....finding all kinds of excuses not do it. But once I got started I LOVE this class. Clear instructions...hips out...suck your lower stomach in...then I'm so glad I got off my butt to start the class. Thank you.

Thank you so much for this lesson. I just did this pose for the first time ever! I even rewound so I could try a couple more times and I think I really got it now!. Thank you so much for the clear instructions - it;s the first time I've understood the need to really get the back hip onto the elbow. Feeling lots of joy right now :) :)

Thank you Christa for your inspiring guidance!! I did this class for the first time today and it was the closest I've ever come to doing that pose! I'm so excited and will return to this particular video again to keep trying. Namaste' -
