I love how Crista's classes are always lighthearted, fun, and unexpected. She continually surprises me in her combinations, and I had fun doing the handstand hops. Thanks Crista!

I'm so glad to be participating in the 30 day challenge as i've taken classes with teachers i've never taken them with before. It's a wonderful journey - thanks!

Really enjoyed the balance of effort and ease. Perfect length for a thorough practice too.

This is my favorite yoga video! I am a marathon runner and find that this strengthens and lengthens all of the right spots. Plus, the instructor is so cute and fun. She makes it the right kind of silly and is such a joy. Thank you, Crista!

I really enjoyed this class. The instruction was clear and thoughtful, the poses challenging but appropriate, and the pacing excellent. I'll definitely be back for these hip openers again!

I'm new to yoga, only doing it couple of months now, but I can feel the change already. Crista's class is great I could feel My body opening up even though I couldn't complete some poses completely. She is very good at explaining and makes me smile too.
