Christa-- I love your positive energy and this entire class. I've already done the class twice in three days. Can't wait to try your other classes, too. Thank you!

I like that this class is a great workout that includes hip opening stretches. It is a wonderful way to sweat and relax. Also, it will counteract all of the hip tension I get from having a sedentary job.

Thank you Crista, you're a great addition to the DYWM team. I really enjoyed your flow and you have a lovely, gentle way of teaching. Savasana to the sound of the ocean was the icing on top!

You have a comfortable ease about your flow! I have tight hips no matter how many hip openers several hours I'm tight again! Thank you this was very relaxing !

Loved this video, such a fun personality and small comments that made it extra enjoyable. Didn´t know if it would be too advanced for me, but she had lots of alternatives - also for my weak wrists :) Finally a great Power yoga I can complete, I normally stick to Hatha. Thank you!

Lovely class! Challenging but I'm glad you gave different variations of the poses to accommodate. I feel I worked my muscles, invigorated and relaxed at the same time! Thank you!

Thank you so much for this, Crista. It was a beautiful mix of challenging, invigorating, and freeing. I used to take your classes at Semperviva (pre 2 children!), and it felt so nice to 'meet' you again in this new space of life. Thanks again for a wonderful class.

This is GLORIOUS!!! Crista has an amazing teaching style that I was drawn to immediately. This class really helped me to more understand the breathing component of yoga. Feeling all stretched and open!!! Thank you sooooo much for these great classes.
