This dynamic, full-body vinyasa yoga class takes a well-balanced approach to the body, moving the spine in all directions and including opportunities to release so many muscle groups, including the hamstrings, hips, hip flexors, back and shoulders. As you move through the flow, Crista incorporates using the wall in a creative, supportive way, while progressing safely toward two challenging poses, forearm balance and wheel.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

This is one of my favorite come-back-to classes. I’ve seen a world of difference between what I was able to do at the beginning and now, after a few months of constant practice. What never changes is Christa’s enthusiasm and ability to motivate you to try and achieve new things. She’s definitely one of my favorite teachers. Thank you, Christa!

Christa, what were the lyrics of the beautiful song you sang at the end? Your voice is so lovely!
Thank you for the practice, really enjoyed it. The gradual progression towards the wheel allowed me
to do it for the first time in a loooonnng time. Thank you!

Hi Susan,
Thanks so much for your kind words!
The mantra at the end is known as the Guru mantra- guru means teacher. Lyrics and different melodies for this mantra are an easy google search.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write.
Warmly, Crista

I really appreciate the sequences in this class. Really artfully put together with a lot of work on each side before finally coming back to the series on the other side. The anticipation of moving to the next side really keeps me engaged in the flow. Beautiful movements to the wall and I'm inspired to put this into a regular practice when I finish the 30 day challenge. Thank you Crista and keep them coming! so fun!

Super skilled teacher, brilliant! My first with Crista so a bit of a baptism of fire but certainly won’t be my last :) Loved, LOVED the chant at the end, what a beautiful voice, your good and kind heart shines through your teaching. Thank you.

This is great! Nice deep stretches and back bends. I found the wall work challenging but am inspired to keep practising. Thank you :)

Crista, what a fantastically fun class! I found myself smiling as I tried and came out of poses that I didn't even know existed with the wall. So much fun to be challenged into a new realm of deep stretches and releases. Thank you. Namaste.

Today was the second time I did this class, and I was able to successfully walk up the wall out of wheel for the first time! I feel that I don't have a lot of natural flexibility in my back but all the warmups allowed me to do it. I also felt that the legs up the wall savasana really helped after running over 30 miles this week. Thank you!
