The beautiful location, Crista's light, fun delivery and the deep release you're about to experience, make this full-length class deeply satisfying and a go-to class for many. In this class, Crista takes you toward the “real” pigeon, Kapotasana, which is a lying backbend done from virasana. The vinyasa yoga flow includes a lot of backbends, side stretches, shoulder openers and twists.

Equipment: Block
Style: Power Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga


A treasure of a class
Manjusri 1 month ago

I had doubts whether I could manage such a long class, and such advanced poses, but felt drawn to a Christa class today and am so grateful for it. It is so rich and nourishing. Lots of challenges and at the same time revelations that 'one is on the way' in the more difficult postures. This is a deep class to return to again and again over time. Christa's chanting at the end is stunning, the combination of her pure-hearted devotion and beautiful voice. And as always, she infuses the whole class with her contagious joy. Thank you x

Challenging intermediate class with several opportunities to practice Fallen Triangle, Standing Splits, Flying Monkey, and Camel pose, plus Wild Thing and other fun poses. Lovely chanting to finish. Looking forward to doing it again. Thanks :)
