Class Description: 

If you want to impress people at your next social event, there's no better way than to put your foot behind your head (Eka Pada Sirsasana), or even better, both feet behind your head (Yoganidrasana)! This full-length class teaches you how to move toward that peak pose gradually and safely, warming up and stretching the muscles in the legs, hips and lower back in order to achieve the full pose without risk of getting hurt. Crista's smiles and wonderful guidance is the icing on the cake.


Go for it!

I was afraid to try this, thinking it would be too hard. It was great, I felt my hips and legs opening more than ever before. I feel so light and happy right now. Give it a try if you're nervous!!

Nice and fun

She has contagious smile! very nice fast vinyasa, some serious hips opener, nice class. I've failed peak pose, dwi pada sirsasana, both feet behind head, a good reason to come back again :-D

Great for increasing hip flexibility!

This video is perfect for me as I'm working to increase the very limited flexibility in my hips. I love Crista's positive attitude and vibes. More Advanced videos from Crista, please!

I absolutely love Crista's

I absolutely love Crista's classes, and this is one of my favorites of all of them - so fun, inventive and challenging, and such sweet hip openers as well as some good core and upper arm work. It is thanks to your amazing teachers like Crista that I keep coming to the mat day after day, week after week - I have been using this site for years now and thanks to your fabulous variety of classes I have never once got bored, ad I love the fact that I have progressed from absolute beginner to dedicated and very flexible yogi.. So much gratitude to everybody involved. Thanks for this class Crista, and thanks to the whole team!

Tough in parts but fun

So many Vinyasa teachers flow from pose to pose giving no chance for you to actually feel or breathe. Not you, Christa! I love that you give some space to the poses and your pacing is fantastic. Despite there being some pretty challenging poses in this sequence I never felt discouraged or too tired to continue. Thank you - you're a lovely teacher. Thank you to all at DYWM for giving us such high-quality teaching - for free. You rock!! :)

Demanding but very enjoyable

Demanding but very enjoyable class. Great to have options along the way. Some variations of the poses I hadn't done before so it was great to try them. Thank you!

I'm nowhere near reaching the harder poses in this class, but I really like it. It's lovely that I can be taking an online class thousands of miles from Canada and be laughing in plank pose ("I love yoga, I love yoga, I love yoga."). Thank you!

Fun Class!

I think this is my favorite class I have EVER taken. Maybe it was just my mood today, but it was perfect.
