Shoulders and Fun

Intermediate III

Even though Crista targets the shoulders in this fun power yoga flow, her unique, creative style still gives you a full body experience. She works your shoulders in poses such as plank and dolphin while opening up your body in big ways through deep backbends, delicious hip and hamstring openers and poses that release the upper and lower back.

Terrific class. Thank you. It was different, challenging and fun. A wonderful variation to the more traditional classes I've been doing in the morning. I'll be returning to this often.

I really loved this practice and found it to be an advanced intermediate to beginning advanced practice with Pincha Mayurasana and Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana, both of which I find exhilarating to get into. The opening is well worth it! I would even suggest that those who are a wee bit hesitant to do Pincha in the middle of the room, do their practice near a wall as that can dramatically influence your confidence! Thank you very much for this lovely practice. Namaste from Ireland.

I used to really dislike classes that focused on shoulders (probably because I actually needed to work on this area!) but now really like them, I enjoy the stretch in the upper back where I hold a lot of tension. I don't think I've done this class before, but after doing some of Fiji's shoulder stand classes I was keen to try this one (and I love all Crista's classes so I was sure I'd enjoy it). It was great, I loved the core work and the hip openers and, while I can't hop into shoulder stand yet, it doesn't feel impossible and it's fun to try :-) Thank you Crista, for another great class!

I think this is my new favourite Christa class ! I really loved the focus on forearm asanas and building shoulder strength. Also, listening to the ocean waves during savasana was simply blissful :)

I really enjoyed this class so much that I downloaded it to take with me as I travel a lot with mu job - but there is no audio on the downloaded video. Can you help? Thank you :-)

I really enjoyed doing some poses that were different from the ones I've been doing lately. The flow was great! I had to look at the screen a couple of times to make sure I was doing it right, but I wouldn't have had to do that if I had previewed beforehand. Her positivity is refreshing! I look forward to doing this class again. Thank you!

My shoulders & hips are always stiff so I could not do the poses all the way but appreciated the options. I look forward to visiting this one often to improve my flexibility and strength.

Crista gives a lot of options and possibilities to do this routine. Even if we are not accomplished yoginis, she always offers many ways to do the poses. Always love her big smile and energy! Thank you!
