Thank you, Christa. This class of yours I enjoyed much more than the previous, slowly becoming acquainted with your style and the places you take us to. One comment I would like to add: I had/have nothing that I am currently „angry about“ so had to turn your instructions around into some kind of positive metaphor. Was irritating to focus on my own positive image as you repeated the word „anger“, „angry“ on each side several times. But I am happy to say that —we were able to stay true to „our“ practice. Namaste

Thank you Christa, i really enjoyed that!! I can understand that for some people this might be too much, when you're not in the mood to play and try something new. But for me it was great. I love ending up in poses that i never thought i could do, like binding standing twist with one leg horizontal - how did i even get there?!? :-)

Warning - do your own warm-up stretches first

I have to agree with PeacefulRN, the transitions were clunky and there was no slow warm-up stretches to prepare tight muscles for the variety of twists. By the end of the practice, my IT bands and quads were screaming.

Truly enjoyable class!

So many different and interesting poses, your breathing was so helpful so I do not forget to. Thank you for a wonderful class.

Not for me.

Not my kind of class - the sequencing felt clunky, the teacher's loud breathing and cheesy music were distracting, and overall I felt I ADDED tension to my body instead of releasing it. Oh well...can't love them all. ;-)

So much goodness

Love, love, love this practice - thank you Crista!
Always creative new sequences, and twists I haven't or have never done - rewiring the body with strength, flexibility, and smiles...
Great kicks too - wow, so much goodness in 50 min. Right from home on this stormy day - yay!
Bookmarked and revisited!
