A lovely heart opening practice that will make you feel really good at the end.
Crista is such a great teacher and I love Lion's Breathe. :)
Beginners can do this practice with modifications.

8/15/19. As much a hip opener/hip flexor stretch for me as it was a heart opener. Intense sensations at times, but an overall juicy and relaxing/releasing practice. Modifications offered for many of the poses. Feels good! Thank you

Whenever I'm struggling with motivation, I always find myself turning towards one of Christa's classes. This one was a new find for me today, and exactly what I needed. Christa, thank you for being such a pleasure to take a class from! It didn't even feel like 30 minutes went by!

I am echoing others, but we can all use more positive comments. You brightened my day with this practice. I feel physically and emotionally more open. I love how you incorporate lion's breath, which makes me forget the belly work and lightens my emotional load. Your smile and your cheerful, encouraging spirit are always the best parts of your classes. Thank you for being you!

Thank you so much Christa. I can't believe how much it helped not only my body but my soul as well - this class is a blessing for the heart.
