If you're having issues with the player:

This is the sun salutation flow that Crista uses in her own practice. It's short and simple, and is quite gentle as far as intermediate classes go. You can do this vinyasa yoga class as a practice in itself, if you don't have a lot of time, or as preparation for another longer practice. The sun salutations have a nice pace and Crista's careful guidance allows you to let go into a meditative style of moving.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga

Short and sweet. This makes a great combination to another short class and gives me a fun way to warm up. By itself is a great way to wake up if I'm short on time.

Great little wake up and warm

Thank you so much for this! Sometimes in the morning I don't have much time and my body feels so stiff so it was perfect to get my body moving and my muscles warm.

Perfect warm up

Great warm to do before those shorter sessions that go deep into hip stretches and postures. Thanks!

Perfect warm up.

Just right to get my body loosened up in preparation for a longer class. I am slowly healing from a strained hamstring and I need to be very careful to not re-injure it by over stretching - a nicely paced sequence like this helps to warm my body and get things loose. Perfect pace! Thank you very much.

Quick & Easy!

I love this quick stretching yoga practice! Crista is very clear in her instruction and it makes it easy to follow her. A good short class to start the day, as it doesn't take a lot of time on a busy morning. :-)

Good instruction

Thank you! I loved the way this flowed so smoothly with the breath. And was led with clear and simple instruction!
