I so enjoyed being surprised inside this flow with unexpected but yummy progressions and asanas. Challenging, nurturing, and wise!

I haven’t done many sessions with Julia, so I decided to give this one a try. She uses a different approach to sun salutations that I’ve never tried before and I really liked it. I don’t think this video is intermediate 2 - it’s easier than that. But, still incredibly enjoyable and the stretching at the end really gets into the hips and glutes, which I liked. All in all, a good and different session than what I’m used to!

Full disclosure : I have not done this class yet , so the 5 stars are to avoid a "false handicap". Here is my preliminary comment, though: for some of us – an estimated 20% of owners of functional ovaries –, ovulation is a painful time, thanks to a thing called Mittelschmerz. It is very seldom talked about – and forget about studies! I suppose the general idea is "it's not dangerous, and you should count yourself lucky that you know when you're ovulating" – but it can hurt like hell, as if someone was pinching and twisting one of your ovaries really hard for several hours (up to 24 and more). I often can't sleep, stand up straight nor take a deep breath without painkillers. Also, if you have it, chances are that in the few days building up to ovulation your entire muscle chains are as messed-up as in Ye Olde PMS, with consequences on your breathing, posture, and aggravation of any back, neck and hip issues you may currently have. "Sweet days" indeed! I am fine with the idea that the video is made for a majority I am not part of, but I wish you had spared a word for the minority in the intro and/or the blurb.

Thank you for sharing and for shedding light on the fact that we are each individuals and will experience our cycles in unique ways. The intention of the series was to highlight our ability to shift our practice in a way that is more aligned with how we feel during each stage in our cycle. It is our hope that these classes can be used in a way that each person finds useful and aligned with their own individual needs and feelings during that time of the month. For those who experience pain and discomfort during ovulation, doing the practice for menstruation may actully feel more benificial. We will definately look into the wording in the description and make some changes to be more inclusive of all experiences.

I'm sorry to hear you struggle with Mittelschmerz. I do wonder though - if we spared a word for the minority in every circumstance it was warranted, could we ever complete anything? Perhaps the Menstruation video would help you with the awful symptoms. Wishing you peace and happiness.

I understand where you’re coming from. I clicked on the video bc I’m exactly where you’re at. Sitting down or standing up too quickly causes intense pain. And it’s usually about 3 days long. Ovulation feels horrible and fatiguing for me. But I hope to use this video in a few weeks! It’s crazy how differently people experience this! Take care!

Hi @twilightbat! Thank you so much for your input here.
I’m happy to share that I’ve just finished filming some new classes for this series. A Gentle Ovulation is an alternative class in this group. Watch out for the class in the future, I hope it’s much more accommodating for you! ❤️

Wow, that's wonderful news! Very much looking forward to discovering it. Thank you so much, Julia – for making that class, and for letting this somewhat cranky commenter know! And thank you all for your answers; @Mhemenwaye, take care too!
