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.

Thanks for a great intro back into yoga practice, very tight shoulders have been worked and stretched.

Yin has been the only yoga practice that has healed two joint injuries I suffered from. I have a new shoulder injury and was delighted to find this practice! I will get back to you in a month and let you know how it goes. Thank you so much!!

This was a beautiful practice - thank you so much Sarah Jane. I carry my tension in my shoulders. This class was just what I needed to release some of that tightness.

I really needed something specific for my shoulders from a very stressful work day at the computer, with bad posture I'm sure. lol I will be doing this practice several times a week. It really targets all the shoulder muscles and tissue. So grateful for this!
