Chrissy's teaching is very intelligent and her style is so direct and clear. I loved this approach to a pose that can be so challenging. Worth the watch!!

It is so exciting when a teacher can take a pose we practice frequently and shed new light on it, and Chrissy does just that. Her unique take on Urdhva Dhanurasana is great for all levels of students and I look forward to more videos from her!

Chrissy does a wonderful job at explaining the mechanics of Urdhva Dhanurasana through out the entire video !! By the time you get to the final pose you are well prepared. Her instructions are clear and precise :)

You will not be disappointed with this video. I feel like I just learned something and Chrissy's style is very open and welcoming -- you'll feel like you're getting a 1-on-1 lesson.
