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.

After straining my shoulder last week at work, this class is the first thing to give lasting relief! My only regret is not trying it sooner! Thank you for the class!

Thank you Sarah Jane, this was the best class I've done to loosen up my horribly tight shoulders. I loved the meditative quality of the breathing and getting into the stillness of the poses was a new kind of challenge. I'll definitely be back!

This class is deceptively simple! I was surprised at how overwhelmed and emotional I got at times. I had to stop the video and take a few steps around the room on a couple of occasions. I'd like to come back to it on another day.

Love this practice allowing to release my shoulders from all the tension that I get built up. It's wonderful! Thank you!
