I'm not pregnant but suffering with sciatica and thought this class would be good for me. After the first five minutes I realised it was not possible for anyone suffering as the moves were far too painful.

This was my first class with Sarah Jane and I loved it! I typically do intermediate classes, but I'm 31 weeks pregnant and this was PERFECT! Just challenging enough that I wasn't bored out of my mind (as I can find with many prenatal yoga classes out there) and the back twist stretch, along with the ham string and IT band stretch were heaven! Thank you thank you Sarah. I feel so much better. I will definitely be returning to this class throughout the remained of my pregnancy . . . and post pregnancy for that matter. Loved it!

Glad I found this... For some reason it didn't appear in the prenatal search but when I did a different search with time perameters, it popped up. Not sure why? Regardless perfect for opening up the low back and hips, especially when time is limited. Appreciated by baby and mama. Thank you!

Kelly from DoYogaWithMe here. Thanks for pointing this out. I've just changed the search terms for this class. It should show up under pre/postnatal searches now. Your feedback is much appreciated!

I'm also unclear whether I've actually found all the pregnancy related yoga classes on doyogawithme - Would it be possible to collate them all? I stumbled across Fiji's accidentally as they didn't come up with initial searches- so perhaps there are more. Pre natal and pregnancy didn't show all of Sarah Janes- so was glad to have found the 'programme'
Thank you,
