I concur. Thank you Sarah a beautiful class. Gentle and effective for acknowledging accepting and inviting in a restful flow. I did this on day two of my menstruation. I felt quite energetic but I am glad I did a slower paced class that was focused on nourishing my body, respecting that it is going through a lot of internal processes. It felt more welcoming. Namaste.

I always come back to this class every cycle! It feels so good to take the time to care for my physical body during this time, and allow myself to slow down and rest. More moontime yoga classes! It is such a special way to honor the body and its cycles.

Thank you. Recovering from flu and really needed some extra support this month. This was just what I needed.

Thank you for this class. It is always good to have this for that time in my cycle. Especially this month as it's allowed me to continue with the 30 day challenge without a strenuous vinyasa which my body is in no mood for today :)

Thank you so much for this Sarah Jane. I have used this on the first day of my cycle of the last three or four months and it has made such a difference. I really seek to avoid medication as it is terrible on this stomach and this allows me to do so. What a gift.

Thank you for such a nourishing practice. This has come to me at a time when I've been caring for others - this gave me time to care for myself. Namaste.
