Hey everyone, I’ve got a fun and challenging yoga class for you! This is almost an hour long and will work your core, hips and shoulders. This is best suited for intermediate to advanced students as we will be preparing ourselves for flying splits (eka pada kundinyasana 2) and headstand (sirsasana). These poses are completely optional so please don’t let this scare you from trying the class! You will absolutely be able to leave them out if needed and modify.

Even though this class requires strength we’ll also have lots of deep stretches added. No props are required, just a positive attitude πŸ˜‰



  1. RunningGioGio

    Holy moly, couldn’t do any of the flying split. But, yay, I was able to do the headstand, and was able to separate from wall for a couple breaths. Thank-you for this challanging practice. Namaste

  2. lmcollette

    Loved this! I tried hard but couldn’t do the flying split and I did crow pose because I can’t do headstand yet. I hope you offer more of these classes. Thank you!

  3. docfab

    I enjoyed the class! do you have any suggestions on this: when we were doing the leg swings from down dog the foot on the mat kept slipping back. Thank you!

  4. Shelley Watson Sherrington

    Wow, that was hard. some poses i wasnt able to do as too advanced. but i wanted to give it a go and was really pleased with my progression since doing yoga with you Kassandra. thank you

  5. Taylor Fornwald

    Wow what a great class my body is burning! I could not get into the flying splits poses. Could you maybe do a tutorial to break those down slower? Definitely would love to add those poses to my practice!

    Thank you so much for this awesome class, Kassandra! From the very first seconds, I loved it! And for the very first time, thanks to your perfectly built up class, I managed to get somewhere close to Ekapada II – a thing I never dared to believe (although I’m not sure what it looked like ; ) – but it felt very rewarding : )). Thank you again.

  7. AnaGerhardt

    So much fun! Very challenging but your positive attitude helped me stay positive and light so I was able to enjoy my wonky flying splits and laugh at myself trying out eka pada 2. My soul feels happy and cheery! I will definitely do this again and would love to see more powerful classes with peak poses.

  8. Elke Schwalm

    What a great challenge. Of course, I was not able to do the more advanced poses like the flying splits, but I managed to stay in the starting position for those on the floor. Would it be possible to have a tutorial about how to get to these poses? The headstand I did with a bit of cheating with a rip-off feets up device. Nevertheless, I feel so good now – energized. Thank you so much, Kassandra, I will keep practicing this flow!

  9. lgross144

    Wonderfully challenging. I loved it! Some poses were too hard for me, but I felt strong and took in the amazing vibes at the end. Thank you!!

  10. nadinemarder

    Tough class and challenging ….want more!!!!!

  11. Ida Waal RΓΈmuld

    Really hard, but at the same time a perfect challenge. Love more of this type of practises.


    I think I’m an early intermediate, lacking the strength to be full intermediate but making progress. I was excited to be able to do most of the poses in this practice, all but the side planks, flying splits, and headstand. Thank you for the challenge and for helping me progress from beginner to where I am now.

  13. Lena

    Wow, great! I couldn’t do the flying splits, the headstand or the arm balance, but it was still a lot of fun.You are the very first fitness/yoga instructor that made me finally enjoy exhausting sessions. I really loved it and I’m so proud of myself πŸ™‚

  14. Elke Schwalm

    My second time with this challenging flow, doing a bit better with the spilts but not really getting there. Is there any pose that I can do to practise this? Anyway, I am feeling great now, thank you!

  15. Bob Vander Ploeg

    I loved this class. Tough but doable, except for flying splits. I even did headstand, which I haven’t done since I was a teenager forty-one years ago! And I loved K’s summary, “There is really no end goal with yoga. The poses truly don’t matter. It doesn’t mean anything about you, whether you can do something or not. It’s all about what we learn along the way, and that’s where that wonderful growth comes from. So let yourself relax in appreciation a little longer…”

  16. Annamarie Sysling

    Wow! I can do flying splits now! The first time I did this class I couldn’t and I just did it today as part of the March challenge and I’m feeling really strong and proud of my progress! woohoo!

  17. Andrea Puetz

    This was well beyond my ability level but I stuck it out to the end, modifying where I needed to and could, resting when I was becoming wobbly. Thank you for our words at the end. They kept me from beating myself up.

  18. milligrg

    Great class, loved it. Couldn’t do all flying stuff..but managed to stick to the entire session. Thanks so much!

  19. Tasha Hudick

    you kicked my booty Kassandra. OOF! Fun challenge.

  20. Irma

    Agree with so many comments. Great challenge for a new intermediate yogi. Pushed me further than ever. Thank you!

  21. Mandy Normandin

    Thank YOU!! Feels so good to challenge myself. We often limit ourselves in fear of failure but the yoga mat has taught me to embrace my fears and learn from the falls.

  22. Suzanne42

    I would love to see more of these types of practices on your channel. Thank you so much for the challenge!

  23. Maria Georgieva

    So nice and rewarding. Thank you.

  24. Ilektra Spark

    great flow. Have been practicing it once in a while and I have really improved on some poses. Kassandra you cannot imagine the good you did to me that I found you. Lots of love,

  25. Melanie Kis

    Loved this practice. Can’t do a headstand and those floating ankle to picky finger…oh la la! One day I’ll get there.

  26. Vivian

    Really loved this one. Thank you!

  27. eugenia collazo

    Beautifull challenge!! Thank you for the final words, thay kept me from beating myself up !!

  28. Shandie Knorr

    It was so hard. I was able to do the flying solits on one side and definitely tried hard om the other. Did the handstand for my first time without needing the wall the emtire time. Thank you for the kind words at the end. I was fedlong gery fridtrated and that helped me let it go and refocus.

  29. Virginie Dubourg

    This one is always very intense for me but it is definitely part of my favorite ones! I always feel relaxed and accomplished afterwards. Thank you for that!

  45. Elke Schwalm

    What a challenge! I loved the down dog, knee to nose, table top and plank transitions, this really gets the heart pace going. But, I was not able to do the arm suspensions, this is just too hard. The headstand I managed with my feet up, so a bit of cheating πŸ™‚ But, all together I do feel really good as I have made it through. I’d love some more challenges like this. Thanks so much, Kassandra!

    • Kassandra

      No such thing as cheating in yoga – they’re just modifications, or taking alternates because you’re listening to your body. Which in a way is really the advanced yoga

  46. Elke Schwalm

    I made it through – what a challeinge. Still not able to do the arm balances, but everything else. So proud that I saw it through. Thanks Kassandra πŸ™‚

    • Kassandra

      Yay!! Well done
