Oh wow, that was tough! I am looking forward to trying again after completing the 30 day challenge to see how this class feels different to me.

Loved the way it was gently guided to seeing where I still need to let go, aiming for flight!

Thank you for a light-hearted yet spiritual practice. It felt SO good for my hips and shoulder especially. I also appreciate the longer savasana with the sound of the surf! Wow, i feel fantastic.

Really enjoyed this practice this morning. I have a lot of hip problems, and my hips feel loose and open coming out of this class. I haven't done a lot of yoga classes and was able to follow by sticking to some of the simpler variations on the poses, but this class could certainly be more challenging if you take on all the variations.

Who would have known 'challenging poses' can be introduced in such a joyful, playful yet safe, spacious, surprising way?!
Love your pixie lightness and brightness, Christa - my first class with you. A fun and uplifting way of starting the week! The variety in the 30 days is a great medicine, and introduction to new-to-me Yoga teachers. Will do more DYWM with you, Christa!
