Our favorite new Booya instructor, Heidi Kristoffer, didn’t have a favorite yoga class. So, she created her own: CrossflowX.
CrossflowX combines yoga, cardio and Kundalini Kriyas to create a workout that builds strength, boosts cardio and improves your mood. What’s great about CrossflowX is that you’re able to do the whole workout on the space of a yoga mat, making it a great option to get a total body and mind workout in a small space.

The yoga poses are also great as they use your body’s own weight to build strength.
