If you're having issues with the player:

Crista moves you through a powerful vinyasa yoga flow that builds in intensity and difficulty level, prepare your body for the wonderfully satisfying advanced pose, maksikanagasana (grasshopper or dragonfly pose in english). You will find that this class has fantastic hip openers, with lots of pigeons, as well as binds, and stretches for the hamstrings and quadriceps. Have fun with this energizing, creative flow!

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

Thank you! I've been doing yoga for a couple of years, but this is my first 'Advanced' class and I'm so glad I tried. This arm balance is beyond my capability for now, but everything else was perfect. Great way to start my day (which will be working from home in front of my computer at my dining room table). This is exactly what I needed :)

Beautiful class that dives right in - great transitions and hip openers. Love Crista's gentle spirit. Thank you!

That was perfect, as with every class of yours, Christa. : ) Someday I might even attempt the Dragon Fly. For now, I am pretty amazed with myself that I can twist and put my elbow on the sole of my foot. Thank you for this class. : )

I loved this so much!! I felt so many great stretching sensations throughout the practice and this is my second time trying dragon fly, whichI find to be a very fun and delightful pose. Thank you so so many times, Crista.

Despite completely smashing my face into the ground attempting dragonfly pose, I loved this class!

nearly all my favorite poses, including dragonfly, thanks for now burningout our arms on balances but using the majority of class to open legs and torso

Great class. I feel energized, stretched and open to what the day has to offer. I tried the dragonfly pose but my foot slipped off my elbow and was then pretty impossible to keep my balance. I will definitely do this class again.
Thanks Crista.

Easy entry into Dragonfly. I had never tried to shift the extended leg back before., which for me needs work. I love all Christa's practices.
