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.
