Sweet and Spicy

Intermediate III

This fun vinyasa flow practice with Crista has lots of juicy twists, side planks, and, of course, some delicious core work. Satisfy your appetite by working towards side crow pose (parsva bakasana) with one forearm down. No props required for this class.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 12 of Cultivate Your Inner Teacher 14-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge.

Very clever and dynamic class that guided me into a variation I have never tried. The savasana and sweet mantra at the end settled my body and tenderly soothed my mind. Truly lived up to the name of 'sweet and spicy'! ♡

was unable to do much due to shoulder injury. had a shoulder injection 10 days ago and this is the second class I've tried since. it is a great class for overall/core/shoulder strengthening without being too strenuous on any one joint. I bookmarked it and hope tomorrow does not reveal any symptoms that might suggest I over did it but so far, so great! I will come back to this class!

great practice... really needed it today after dealing with an injured parent and all the family dynamics that arise when people need to cooperate. I usually do not like singing at the end but this tune was so lovely and Crista's voice was amazing. So clear ... I too was curious as to the lyrics. Thank you! I just realized that there is music provided that I can listen to doing yoga practice..

I love the chants that Crista does. Would it be possible to post the videos with chants and include the chant and translation so we could learn the chants and understand it as well? Crista is amazing. Thank you DYWM.

Christa’s classes are always so much fun! Her smile and her “whee’s” during the hops are just too much fun. She makes harder sequences seem lighter!

Thank you Crista, for the two amazing classes in this inner teacher series! They are so great for full body stretches and feeling awesome at the end. The two classes back to back are like a private retreat. Wishing healthy and joyous holidays.

12/19/20 Twisty and deep opening for the hips - felt good. Do-able but not as easy as it used to be for these 51 year-old joints! The arm balances are not for me but I really appreciated the modifications that let me keep pace. Thank you.

Crista, deep thanks for the care and love you put into this practice. Love the moves, the music and the vocalizing. (All forms of side crow continue to elude me, but I'll keep trying.) A wonderful Saturday pick-me-up.

Thank you, Crista. I always love your playful attitude. I also enjoyed the wonderful opening of the back/front/side body that I experienced in this class. It had just the right amount of challenge and was the perfect length of time.
