This was certainly a challenge for me, but Crista's style is happy, peaceful and makes me smile. Thank you for the challenge. I feel better than I did an hour ago. ;)

Wow, this is the first time I've done this sequence and have been able to get my leg straight up/out while holding the bind, thank you Crista for your wonderful teaching. And thank you doyogawithme for being such an amazing resource. Still working on getting up into a handstand, but maybe one day!

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

I keep coming back to this class, it's so good! On the advanced side of intermediate, be prepared for a playful challenge :)

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?!? :-)

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.
