Sarah, thank you so much for this energizer. It's first thing in the morning, and I'm feeling on top of the world now. Look out world....here I come! :)

I simply loved this practice today. I had a particularly stressful day yesterday and slept very poorly. Since I carry most of my stress in my neck and shoulders, this practice helped me open up those areas and let things go (physically and mentally). Thank you!

This is just what I was looking for. The perfect sequence for opening my shoulders and chest. Thank you.

Love the 30 day challenge even though I did not do them all, or sequentially, but has opened me up to new classes and teachers. Love Sarah Jane and discovering Yin postures. My shoulders feel so much better. I will be doing this one regularly. Also ,loved the lower spine one. Thank you .

One of the things I've really enjoyed about the 30 day challenge has been that it's introduced me to new classes, teachers and different forms of yoga practice. I had never done a yin class before now, and I'm so glad that Sarah Jane has taken the time to prepare so many thoroughly rewarding classes. Finding those openings in the chest and shoulders through longer poses has been so beneficial. thank you.

I have a huge knot in my shoulder/upper back and this stretched all around it. I will keep doing this one until it is gone. Thank you.

Very relaxing music and perfect for tight over worked shoulders. After this class my shoulders feel completely at ease. Thank you! Love the yin yoga!!!
